How can I find someone's street address using Google?

Answer: Google has a number of different "predefined" searches that will return specific results. For example, type in a tracking number and you'll get a result with a link to the appropriate UPS or Fed Ex tracking page. Type in a stock ticker symbol, and you'll get detailed information and links relating to that stock.

You can also use Google's predefined search to locate someone's address. Just type in their phone number in the format "123-456-7890" and their name and address will show up if they are in the directory. If you are concerned about your privacy and would like your name and address removed from the directory, you can use Google's Phonebook Name Removal Form.

If you don't know the person's phone number, you can also try the Yahoo! People Search to locate the address, based only on the individual's name.
