    TMP Worldwide consolidating Online Job Sites

    TMP Worldwide, which owns Monster.com, has now purchased the competing jobs site FlipDog.com, through an acquisition designed to boost Monster's paid job advertisements.

    Less worried about the number of job advertisements and profiles of people looking for jobs, TMP Worldwide plans to merge FlipDog's data extraction technology into Monster.com's own technology. This will increase their ability to sell commercial job listings and extract job listings from other sites.

    FlipDog currently gets the majority of their job listings using a spider technique that takes the available jobs directly from company websites. Monster.com could use these new job listings to approach companies and offer them premium listings at a premium price.

    Monster

    TMP is a giant. Monster is the ebay of the Job Market. TMP makes a ton of money selling services to recruiters. Buying flipdog was a smart move!
