REVERSE IMAGE SEARCH: Online Investigations preferred reverse image sites

Are you looking for the best reverse image search site?

Ah, the Internet.  The magical world of counterfeit property, plagiarism, fake profiles and false claims.  So how can you possibly tell whether your online date is really the person in the photograph? Or the baby sonogram your habitual lying, attention seeking friend has posted on her Facebook is legit? Or whether the vehicle your looking to purchase from a friendly Nigerian Prince really exists?

Simple.  By conducting a reverse image search it will identify whether the same image has been used in other places across the Internet allowing you to determine whether the image you are viewing is original.

Here at Online Investigations, your preferred Private Investigator Melbourne, we have done the hard work for you and created a list of the best reverse image search directories.  These are our preferred sites:
