Mission

    jobRank.org selects, ranks and reviews only the best employment sites and career resources in the world. Our goal is quality, not quantity. For this reason we do not include all job sites submitted or establish partnerships that might undermine our scope, mission and independence.

Geographical Classification


We adopt the United Nations geographical classification as shown in the document "Classification of countries by major area and region of the world" published by the Population Division of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs. For this reason countries like Turkey and Cyprus are included in the Asian geographical area even if, politically speaking, they might better fit under the European one.

 

Job Sites Ranking Methodology


Job sites are ranked by our exclusive jobRank.org Jobsite Web Ranking. The ranking has been published since 2004. Since then the ranking methodology has been periodically fine-tuned in order to provide better results.
The current ranking is based upon an algorithm including four unbiased and independent web metrics extracted from three different search engines: Web metrics data are collected on the same week to minimize temporal fluctuations and maximize comparibility. A pre-computational filter is adopted to detect outliers in the raw data. Further investigation and a review of Alexa Traffic Rank data is carried out for universities adopting a subdomain (highly not recommended) as their official institutional home page.
Once filtered (outliers) and reviewed (subdomains), web metrics data are normalised to a scale of 0 to 100 taking into consideration the logarithmic nature in which both the Google Page Rank and the Alexa Traffic Rank are expressed. The four normalised values are aggregated based on a weighted average algorithm which generates the final score and web ranking.
The exact formula adopted to aggregate the four web metrics is not disclosed for copyright reasons and to minimise attempts of manipulation from job site webmasters in order to achieve better rankings. The same philosophy is adopted by Google with regards to their search engine ranking algorithm.

 

Disclaimer


The aim of this website is to provide an approximate popularity ranking of world job sites based upon the popularity of their websites. This is intended to help international job seekers and employers/recruiters to understand how popular a specific job site is in a foreign country. We do not claim - by any means - to rank organisations and their websites, by the quality or level of services provided.

 

Information updates


Data and information are added or updated on a monthly basis. The jobRank.org Jobsite Web Ranking is updated once a year in January.
A special thanks goes to all employment sites that are participating in this project and help us maintain our database up-to-date.
