Jobs, numbers, and fans/critics.

Some time ago we started posting job vacancies again.

Got alot of emails, SMS and blog comments thanking us for starting it up. Thanks should go to Maria Freitas who posts them every day, every day. It costs:

  1. an internet connection,
  2. a computer,
  3. a printer/scanner,
  4. Maria’s salary and benefits, and
  5. some paper.

Pretty good value really.

What strikes me as odd is why the copy cat competition does not get as many postsings up as we do – its after all a relatively easy task.  Competition is good though, and there is more here.  I wonder what the traffic is like on those sites, we took a major jump in traffic – look at the below August 2010 to March 2011 figures.  The massive jump is all thanks to Maria Freitas.


Big numbers for Buka Serbisu
