Find Phone Numbers by Googling for ☎, ☏, or ✆

booleanstrings Boolean 5 Comments

Did you know that Google can search for symbols – including these: ☎, ☏, and ? We can use this capability to look for publicly posted phone numbers. Use an area code to find phone numbers in a target location.

Here is an example:

site:nl.linkedin.com/in paas software sales director (☎ OR ☏ OR ✆) 31

Nether LinkedIn nor Facebook can search by these symbols; Twitter can, though. Searching by  ☎, ☏, and ✆ when X-Raying LinkedIn is, therefore, another advantage of LinkedIn X-Ray search vs. its internal search.

P.S. Like this tip? Look, also, into searching by ✉.

P.P.S You can search for contact info on LinkedIn with this Custom Search Engine that I have just created: http://bit.ly/LinkedIn☎✉

      Joana,
      There are lots of sources where you can find these icons. Google for something like phone symbol or phone emoji. MS Word also has a function to insert various symbols.
