HOW MANY AND HOW GOOD?

How job rich is the site? What are the jobs posted on the site?

Does the site state how many jobs are posted, and how many different employers have posted jobs? Does it report how many browsers have visited the site?

How often do the listings get updated? Does the site state when it was last updated? Are the listings dated at all?

Look for a date stamp to see when the information was created or last updated.

Searching old job banks will not usually prove to be useful (except as historical research).
