Thanks for the ideas and suggestions -- I do agree that the wants ads are
a good source to find job seekers. However, the type of job seeker I
am looking for doesn't really need a new job. They already have one.

And advertsing jobs in the paper is very expensive -- My hope is to develop
a "virtual community" and forward a weekly job posting to my database of
registered list memembers -- it seems to be the way things are going
I have been following want ads ( job search ) for nearly 10 years --
I would say that print ads are down over 75% than just 2 years ago.
There are still plenty of openings, just not advertised. Connecting my
"push" ads and direct them to the web site seems to be the way to go.

I also want to get more hits to my site based on geography. I would like to
change the metafile tags to have more hits on terms like:
Computer jobs, Wisconsin, WI or any other ideas out there?

I have my web helper working on the tags, thanks for the suggestions
this is such a new science - isn't it?

Make sense?
