#LookDeeper: HTTP Status Code Checker – Professional Tool for Online Investigations In online investigations, there are many cases where the investigator does not have to look at just one website. Particularly in cases where more than 20 domains are involved, it makes sense to conduct information queries in bulk. This is then a quick way […]
#LookDeeper: Geo Screenshot Supports OSINT-Investigations In the course of our brand protection and counterfeit investigations, I increasingly identified websites where content is available but not displayed to all visitors. For example, the shop is only visible if the calling IP comes from a country that the operator has whitelisted. The website administrator makes these settings […]

This article in the iResearch blog series is the last of three posts on the topic “Workflow Internet Search”.
In this small “Sub-Series” I present our current workflow for internet research. It is used every day in our team and is constantly optimized. Of course, it is also part of our training courses on the subject of Internet investigations.
In the first posts I have dealt with the topics Preparation – Order Definition – Capturing of the existing information – Finding additional keywords – Setting up & using the search plan – Using the search protocol.
At this point in the research process, the actual research work is now taking place. In our daily work, the question often arose what do we do with the search results that were recognized as relevant?
This article in the iResearch blog series is the second of three posts on the topic “Workflow Internet Search”…..
In this small “Sub-Series” I present our current workflow for internet research. It is used every day in our company and is constantly optimized. Of course, it is also part of our training courses on the subject of Internet investigations.
This is the first of three posts on the subtopic “Workflow Internetrecherche”.
The internet as a seemingly endless research source offers a copious amount of information.
Not much preparation is needed for a quick search, for example, about a current news topic.
However, things are a bit different for more complex tasks. My internet research does not start with the keyboard, but rather with a pen and paper.
In the following, I will introduce you to our current workflow for internet research. We use it daily and constantly optimize it. Please contact me with your tips and questions.
Internet research, or iResearch for short, is one of the most important components of our investigations. It is precisely because of this reason that we have prepared a blog series, with the help of which we will examine many aspects of the topic in the coming weeks.
