How do you compare KDNuggets, Analyticbridge, Datashaping, iCrunchdata and job boards from professional societies?
Professional organizations are very expensive and tend to drive little traffic, generally more academic type of candidates.
iCrunchdata is dead, they are having fewer and fewer clients - mostly analytic recruiters such as Analytic Recruiting. I guess because they've disappointed many hiring managers.
Analyticbridge's newsletter reaches 3.5 times more analytic professionals than KDNuggets: 42,000 vs. 12,000. KDNuggets has a higher proportion of readers outside US, and its audience is more academic, less business-oriented than Analyticbridge. Also Analyticbridge with Datashaping, Datasciencecentral and its related LinkedIn groups and other web properties reach far more monthly visitors than all other competitors combined.
Finally, Analyticbridge, Datasciencecentral (the job sections only) and DataShaping are going to be merged pretty soon and re-launched as AnalyticTalent.com: it will be a brand new site, with resume access (not available on KDNuggets) and more convenience and opportunities for hiring managers and companies hiring data scientists.
