# Examining visitor information¶

Although you can learn about your website’s visitors as a group, there are times when it is helpful to focus on an individual, and their specific behavior. Using Personalization, you can view a detailed summary of visitors’ behavior and interests, including when they accessed different websites on which you are operating Personalization.

Note

While new user data is immediately captured by Personalization, there may be a delay of several minutes before the data is available to Personalization. The delay may be several hours when the system is under heavy load.

## Searching for a visitor¶

By default, the People page displays a list of visitors who accessed your website or websites in the last 30 days.

To perform a search for a particular visitor or visitors, complete the following steps:

3. From the People page, in the Match Criteria list, select from the following values to perform a search for an exact or partial match against any of the identifiers that Personalization associates with a visitor:
• Exact Match: This will limit your search results to the exact value you enter in the Find a visitor field. For example, this option matches a search for JohnSmith with the visitor saved as JohnSmith.
• Begins With: This will limit your search to results that begin with the value you enter in the Find a visitor field. For example, using this option when searching for John would display visitors saved as JohnSmith and JohnBrown.
• Ends With: This will limit your search to results that end with the value you enter in the Find a visitor field. For example, using this option when searching for Smith would display visitors saved as JohnSmith and JaneSmith.
4. In the Find a visitor field, enter your search criteria for the visitors that you want to display (leave blank to display all visitors).
5. Click Search.

Personalization displays a list of the visitors that meet the search criteria, along with each visitor’s primary identifier, and the first and last times that visitor’s information was modified.
