There are couple of transforms that use search engines - all of them very similar. The basic recipe with these transforms are as follows:
Maltego will sometimes give you results that seem plain wrong. You need to keep in mind that the application will get pretty desperate when it does not get results. So - when you are searching for a person called "Vaxynutus Grabounill" and that person simply left no marks on the Internet Maltego will eventually go after a search term "VG" - with a super low confidence - but you will still get some results. These results could seem completely off the mark, but should have very low weights. Always look at the weights.
Some entities are hard to parse. Telephone numbers are notoriously hard to parse. There is always a trade-off between missing numbers and parsing non-telephone numbers as phone numbers. With the current transform we hope to have reach the optimal balance.
This transform shows sites where various permutations of the person's name was found. You’ll see a pop up asking for a Domain or TLD and an additional search term.
Staring with our person called "John Doe" we can run our transform. Choosing the domain as "pastebin.com" the transform will only return results with that domain. The transfroms returns a websity entity for each domain it finds. The individual URLs are stored as a property of the website entity. We can use the "To URLs" transfrom to create a URL entity for each URL belonging to the website.
