Providing us with an XML feed is the most reliable way to get your jobs included on Whatjobs.com. You must provide us with a URL where your XML feed is located. The feed should contain all the current jobs published on your website.Submit XML
We strongly recommend you specify the current encoding of an XML feed in its header (for example, <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>). If you cannot do this, it is very unlikely your jobs will perform well and may not be indexed.
All job content must be inside CDATA sections to avoid issues in processing your XML job feed. Your XML feed must contain one common tag.
Every single job must be inside a separate tag; this tag must contain a single "id" attribute, which must show a unique job ID.
The <job> tag must contain the following criteria, or your feed will be rejected by our processor:
WhatJobs will only index jobs published less than 28 days ago. This rule applies to <updated> and <pubdate> tags. If a job does NOT have <updated> and <pubdate> tags, then the job will have a default value of 28 days.
Sending accurate job descriptions from your website using the required tags may increase your visibility on Whatjobs, resulting in greater targeted traffic and a higher CPA.
To enhance the quality of the jobs from your XML feed, we may use a web crawler, which identifies itself as 'TheWhatBot’ or
'HTTP/1.1 TheWhatBot (compatible; https:/whatjobs.com/thewhatbot)'
TheWhatBot crawls XML feeds at least once every 24 hours. The time and frequency of crawling can be adjusted to your requirements.
