It’s pretty amazing looking at the Seek and Trade Me Jobs unique browsers stats. Neither site has managed to eke out an advantage.
I guess that means everyone is checking both sites, but also that advertisers would be wise to place ads on both sites as well. Each site will be trying to capture all of the market for job placements, and it’s clear that Seek is the defender here. At some stage Trade Me, as happened with real estate, will be clearly superior in listing quantity, and Seek’s relative market share will decline.
It’s somewhat astonishing that Seek’s site design looks like it hasn’t changed in 10 years.
