Job sites rankings update

I am really starting to question the validity of the listing produced in Interbiznet’s Bugler, which is based on the work from TopJobSites. Yes I know on the TopJobSites they have a disclaimer but still to have missed the number 1 job site in India given they make up such a large proportion of the job market these days is a bit of an error. Is Naukri undertaking some activity that would have them being excluded from the list or is this just an error? I would love to know.

What with this and the missing Australian government site JobSearch do we really have a complete understanding of the international marketplace. Can anyone help me understand, what other sites are missing? In the interests of getting a clearer picture I have uploaded the complete 179 site listing as a PDF for review.

Adding Naukri to the list would push out of the top 10 and leave only 3 US focused sites in the top ten, probably a true reflection of the market place.

  1. Thanks for pointing this out. We publish the listings as a service and as a point of departure. We routinely cover the inadequacies of the report. Your insight, however, is a nice, quantitative improvement.

  2. The listing provide an interesting perspective on the job board market and highlight the growth of online HR services outside of the US. I will be very interested to compare this list in 9-12 months time once gets up and running. Will job boards still have the same reach? The other interesting statistic would be to look at tools such as Craigslist and see the reach jobs get on this service vs a traditional job board and then a corporate job site.
