At http://www.space.com/11279-nasa-alien-planets-image-1235-exoplanets.html there is an interesting article on the then number of extra-solar candidates found by the transit method. (The transit method detects extra-solar planets by a slight dip in the brightness of a star.)

At http://www.planethunters.org/classify people are examining lightcurves and looking for the slight dips that reveal the presence of a planet orbitting that star. For a full discussion see http://www.planethunters.org/science
