Another way to make money?

indeed.com has an interesting way of showing job trends:

In 2005, we gathered over 35 million jobs from thousands of websites. We are allowing anyone to search this archive in order to plot job trends over time.

This is from their website.

The trend is obvious here - good web businesses are allowing anyone to create "mashups" the buzz word for API's that allow small web businesses to use the tools of big web businesses.

As an example, golfnoe.com, uses google maps to pinpoint golf course locations and add value to it's golf business.

In Indeed's case, I see their service of use in the financial markets as we gauge the mobility of people and the job trends in different parts of the country. Well done, indeed!

Thanks for the post.
