Web Rankings For a Handful of Jobs Sites

Using data pulled from Quantcast, I put together a chart that shows the site rank and unique visitors per month for a few sites that I try to keep my eye on with some degree of regularity. I am not sure that there are any great conclusions to draw from the data, but I will look at the data periodically to see what changes, if any, occur in this list.

The one interesting data point I did discover was the fact that Twincitieshelpwanted.com ranked as low as it did, with an abysmal monthly traffic of less than 2,000 unique visitors. This is a site operated by Regional Help Wanted, the company that was just acquired by OnTargetJobs for $100M. As I wrote in a recent post, we have never, ever bumped into this company on a sales call in over 5 years, and in looking at the site data, I can see why. They don’t get any traffic! As I suspected, their business model centers around radio stations rather than employers or job seekers. I’d be surprised if any of their 300 or so sites generate any substantial traffic. If anyone finds one that generates more than 10,000 unique visitors per month, let me know.
