Feeding your jobs to Indeed and SimplyHired

the past week i had the chance to work on creating jobberBase XML feeds for Indeed and SimplyHired. at first i thought it was daunting. but it was all good in the end.

i would say though, the model for which these 2 sites operate is actually not compatible with jobberBase since first and foremost (at least for indeed) they do no accept postings for sites that are free and for sites that has google ads on it. so before embarking on an effort to get your feeds to indeed and simplyhired, you might want to check first their criteria or qualification.

On backfilling jobs:

If you have an Indeed Publisher ID, you should be able to backfill your job board with Indeed jobs that you can actually monetize.

Indeed API backfill add-on for jobberBase 1.9.1
for US$99*

1) jobberBase v1.9.x installed (and running)

1) No database modification
2) Setup the backfill jobs as cron jobs to run at your preferred interval
3) No double-posting of the same jobs from the same network
4) It will back fill jobs for all your job categories (and location if wanted)

Once you download the Indeed API backfill add-on, be sure to read the README.txt file for more information and instruction on how to install and configure.

  7. Hi,

    The link to ‘Backfill your job board with Indeed and SimplyHired’ doesn’t work in the post above. Is that page still available?

    Is it easy to add the click-tracking for under their affiliate programme once the add-on is installed?


  8. yes it’s easy to add the click tracking using the Indeed affiliate program using the custom API i created. it only works if you have the backfill script originally.
