XiVerse – Xing reverse search engine

XiVerse ProduktbildFor some days I’m also on Xing. Who is also there, will certainly know the function that displays the last visitors of one’s own profile.

Unfortunately you do not get the names of your visitors, but only small thumbnails of the last visitor appears in the basic membership at Xing. Also a link to their profile is not given.

This feature is dedicated to premium users (~ 7 € / month) only. But that’s only the half truth.

Find out who visited your Xing progile without having premium status

In most cases it is possible to find out who were the last visitors on the own profile without premium membership. Therefore you have to compare the visitors thumbnails against some data.

In order to simplify the search procedure, as an exercise for myself and as a feasibility study in general, I have created XiVerse. XiVerse here is a word created from Xing and reverse (search).

XiVerse means it is possible in most cases to find out the latest visitors to your own profile without being a premium member. Therefore only two quick steps are needed.

  1. Copy (by right click) the image address of the thumbnail image of the visitor
  2. Paste the thumbail url into the textfield on xiverse.code-bude.net and click the “Let’s go” button

XiVerse - FunktionsweiseIf XiVerse could identify the visitor, a few seconds later a brief information about the visitors and a link to his/her profile is shown.  If the visitor could not be determined, contrary to expectations, an error message is shown.

Whether a visitor can be determined in this case depends on the visibility of its profile, followed XiVerse has no influence.

Should it not work out once, so you should not be discouraged and stamp XiVerse as useless, but give XiVerse another chance. Finally, the whole thing is not a “state of the art” project, but as already mentioned, more of a feasibility study.

I hope you enjoy my “Xing reverse search engine” and would appreciate any feedback!

    It’s not possible anymore since Xing is hiding the thumbnail links and is redirecting you instantly to a premium offer, right?
