It’s been nearly a year since Purchasing Magazine and its site,, went away. While I miss some of the content, that site’s demise certainly hasn’t left the web void of sources of news, views, and education for the procurement professional.

I’ve compiled a list of 20 top sites in the procurement space. These are sorted by their Alexa traffic rank, which is designed to rank sites from most to least traffic (by Alexa’s measurements).

The lower the number, the more traffic the site gets. Traffic rank changes regularly, so these are the numbers extracted today. By the way, the #1 site among all sites – not just procurement sites – is, followed by at #2.

OK…onto those procurement sites…

1. – 268,950

2. – 304,775

3. – 310,865

4. – 335,969

5. – 362,372

6. – 363,205

7. – 451,686

8. – 478,525

9. – 745,030

10. – 842,732

11. – 966,611

12. – 1,751,907

13. – 1,833,581

14. – 1,938,216

15. – 2,051,482

16. – 2,230,426

17. – 2,443,306

18. – 2,494,630

19. – 3,291,172

20. – 4,502,076

In addition to this list being a good resource for procurement professionals to use for their research, I think that marketers can benefit from this list as well. Many of these sites offer advertising or sponsorship opportunities where marketers can directly reach procurement decision-makers and it’s not always clear how much bang a company is getting for its marketing buck. This list shows who has the traffic, relatively speaking.

If you are a marketer and interested in getting a copy of the media kit for sponsorship opportunities on, please send an email to mmccollum [at] nextlevelpurchasing [dot] com.
