OK, here’s one for your browser bookmarks or favorites from eBizMBA. It’s entitled “Top 15 Most Popular Job Websites” and it’s updated monthly based on Web traffic analysis. Those number draw from each site’s Alexa Global Traffic Rank, as well as US traffic rank data from Compete and Quantcast. The December 2012 rankings run like this, but the reason for capturing the site’s URL is to let you tune in to the current month’s ranking any time you like:
|December 2012 Job Site Rankings (Alexa rank in parens)|
|1. Monster (267)||8. Job.com (1,580)|
|2. CareerBuilder (286)||9. theLadders (3,126)|
|3. Indeed (252)||10. Dice (3,405)|
|4. Simplyhired (638)||11. FindTheRightJob (4,346)|
|5. AOL Jobs (1,340)||12. Bright (6,191)|
|6. Snagajob (1,430)||13. JobBankUSA (7,227)|
|7. USAJobs (1,432)||14. EmploymentGuide (7,902)|
|15. vault (13,672)|
FWIW, my own research often involves matching up job titles with salaries. For that purpose, I find Indeed to be particularly useful, because it provides salary data for all positions its lists, and I’ve been able to use that information repeatedly to estimate average salaries for lots of different IT positions. I’m only familiar with just over half the sites on this list, but the numbers don’t lie: lots of people are using them, so surely they are good for something! Check this list out for yourself, and be sure to add the eBiz MBA ranking URL to your collection (you’ll find lots of useful lists of this type on the eBiz MBA site in fact, including link compendia for most-visited reference, blog, HTML5, social networking, and other interesting types of Websites).
