Do the Nielsen ratings only show up Australian based visitors?

Hi Dan

These figures are only domestic for Australian visitors - for international ones add a further 7-8%. Of that international traffic at least 50% comes from New Zealand and the UK.

I would say it is at the point where reporting the top three is becoming a little worthless. Not much changes. Seek continue to dominate and Careerone and MyCareer stay around about the same. Maybe it would be better to report what is happening further down the ranks, at least there is a greater chance something interesting may be happening. I guess the challenge is that not all the 'minor' players see value in (or have the cash) to subscribe to Nielsens though.

Another thing to consider is that as the industry has evolved well past one dimensional traffic volume numbers, it would be great to see some measurement data come out that showed 'quality' along with or rather than 'volume'. As we all know volume does not equal quality. I guess the challenge is how could you measure quality and what is considered quality?

looking and working toward the day when Job Seekers are "alerted" to suitable Job opportunities on their mobile platform (today the mobile phone) and are responding from this devise skirting around the web job boards.

"As we all know volume does not equal quality."

If only "we" included all the recruiters out there ;)

The measurement also depends on how you define quality.

One of our largest customers takes a very brutal approach to measuring the performance of the recruitment advertising products they use. They don't track how many candidates came from each job board, they simply record where the candidates whom they place came from!
