We have just added LinkUp to our expanding recruitment media network, so I thought it would be interesting to shine a light on what is described as the fastest growing job search engine in the US.

What makes LinkUp interesting?

  • They only have jobs from direct employers
  • They offer organic listings, automatically scraping your jobs for free
  • When job seekers apply, they are directed straight to the job on the employer’s career site.
  • They also offer a cool S&P jobs index every week to give insights into the state of employment and the economy.

How do they make money?

  • Like Indeed, they offer the ability to sponsor jobs on a pay-per-click basis. Those jobs then appear higher in the listings (top and bottom 2 slots on each page).

So how successful have they been?

  • 150 million jobs since 2007
  • 50,000+ companies indexed daily
  • Based out of Minneapolis in the US, they currently have 51 staff

A really interesting model and focused website. Could be a future player, and I would imagine will roll out internationally before long. Worth keeping an eye on I think.
