Add deep links to Pro Web?

Whitepages Pro Web provides an easy-to-use and intuitive UI to access Whitepages Pro data, including the best mobile phone data available, 30 years of address history, and integrated Google Street View.

Pro Web provides great value to our customers, but the need to type or copy and paste inputs between two browser windows can be an obstacle to getting full value out of the product. Experienced agents can often make their accept/reject decision within seconds of viewing the Whitepages Pro Web results screen, so even the few moments it takes to copy and paste inputs can add up to a significant portion of the overall review time.

Thankfully, there is a better way, as Whitepages Pro Web supports deep-linking to search results.

Here is how it works:

Are you using Accertify? Ask your customer support to enable deep links to Whitepages Pro reverse phone and/or reverse address!

Are you using CyberSource? We have a browser extension for Chrome or Firefox that will add these links for you!

  1. Install either the Chrome Tampermonkey extension or Firefox's Greasemonkey extension
  2. Install the Whitepages Pro Web Lookup script here.

Using your own home-built system? Here are instructions for building these links yourself.

For any reverse phone, reverse address, find person, or find business query you run in Pro Web, you can see the input parameters you submitted right in the URL:

This allows a developer to build hyperlinks that users can click on to take them right to Pro Web results. The input parameters simply need to be included into a URL like above, and then wrapped in an HTML anchor tag. Here is an example:

<a href="https://pro.lookup.whitepages.com/phones?number=2066013561">(206) 601-3561</a>

Ask your development or IT manager to build these links into your platform, and you can start reviewing transactions with even greater efficiency.

For reference, here are examples of the URL format for other search types:

  • Reverse Address: https://pro.lookup.whitepages.com/addresses?street=123+main+st&where=seattle+wa
  • Find Person: https://pro.lookup.whitepages.com/people?address=&name=john+smith&where=seattle%2C+WA+98101 
  • Find Business: https://pro.lookup.whitepages.com/businesses?keywords=Coffee&where=98101

Reach out to your Whitepages sales executive or account manager if you need any assistance, and we will be happy to help!
