I just wonder, are the global searches much fewer than US searches currently?

(Assuming I understand correctly what they are.)

Right now it is at 1725 Global Searches. You people in the US, what do you see?

4 hours later it is at 1727 searches. So not exactly a torrent of searches.

Update: Thanks for the answer. I see "Global Searches" is changed to "Total Searches". Excellent.

Global searches just means "searches". It does not mean US versus non-US.

More live employer search data is available now for everyone:

    Anyway, couldn't you leak some info in the next podcast about what "topics" employers search for the most? Jan 5, 2010 at 12:41

You can assume that the careers.so employers are the same as the jobs.joelonsoftware.com
In which case they are 95% USA with a few in London/Cambridge (UK)
