My results would not be valid since the counter is reset every time you
edit/activate your online resume, and since it gets sent out to agencies
every time it is revised and activated, I did it almost every week.

If you want to know how well you are marketing yourself, how often do you
get contacted with the opening line.."I saw your resume on XXX and I'd like
to know if you are available..."

I don't care how many hits the counter says...if you get no calls, you
aren't marketing yourself effectively...if you get 5 hits and 5 calls, you
are marketing yourself very well.

I'm wondering: what is the average number of times that everyone's
resume has been viewed per week on the big job boards?

The reason I'm asking is that it occurs to me that the answer could be
one sign of how effectively you're marketing yourself in the job market.

If anybody cares to answer, either on-list or privately, I'll post a
summary at the end of the week, divided by job board.
