Indeed Takes Top Job Search Spot From Monster

Overtaking longtime leader Monster.com, Indeed.com became the largest domestic job site in October, according to new comScore data. Overall, 12.3 million people visited Indeed in October -- up a healthy 19.6%. Monster.com, meanwhile, attracted 12.1 million people, followed by CareerBuilder.com with 11.3 million job seekers. "It is still pretty close, with Indeed just barely edging out Monster," notes TechCrunch. "But this could very well be a turning point for leadership of the online job search category."

As TechCrunch notes, however, these numbers are only for the respective main sites, and do not include each property's larger networks. CareerBuilder and Monster are still larger by that measure, with 21.2 million and 14.7 million monthly uniques, respectively, compared to 12.5 million for Indeed. Still, Indeed passed Monster in page-views last year, and now attracted an estimated 334 million page-views per month, compared to 311 million for CareerBuilder and 205 million for Monster.
