Job search engine Indeed.com pinged me to brag on themselves a little. The company has broken the million job seekers per month barrier, a 300 percent increase in 2006.

The upswing in traffic puts the job engine, which ranked sixth among online employment services in January, nearly on par with the number of career hopefuls digging around AOL and MSN (via CareerBuilder.com, which holds a monstrous – get it? – lead over everybody).

That CareerBuilder was in first place as well as fourth and fifth, may indeed raise Indeed up to fourth place overall.

Those million job seekers conduct about 25 million searches per month at Indeed, a figure the company says is over three times more than direct competitors, citing comScore. I’m not sure what they mean by “direct competitor,” though. It’s hard to imagine they’ve outsearched CareerBuilder, Monster and Yahoo.

The success of the site, which uses a pay-per-click network to monetize it, has netted the company about 150 paying clients and partnerships with heavy-hitters like the New York Times, Boston.com, About.com, A9.com, and Gawker Media.

Recently the company added a host of new features to its core search functions. Those additions include email job alerts, RSS job search feeds, jobs by Instant Messager, Firefox and Google job search plug-ins, advanced search refinement, job search management with my.indeed, job trends and salary research.
