THE UK’S LARGEST JOB SEARCH ENGINE IS NOW ALSO THE FRESHEST
In response to changes in Google’s relevancy algorithms and new customer research, workhound.co.uk has introduced real-time search results to its index of jobs.
Following the trend for more speed in search, like Google Instant, the product makes use of jobs sourced from semantic engines that evaluate more than 120 million sources daily to identify new job openings.
A big complaint of job seekers is that they’re finding jobs that have already been filled. “Many job boards and aggregators tend to hold many old and expired jobs to attract more traffic from search engines,” says company CEO, Howard Lee. “These, obviously, are not useful for job seekers.”
Google’s implementation of its Panda algorithm also forces search aggregation engines to focus on having newer and more exclusive data. Most job search engines lost a large percentage of their traffic with the latest changes to Google’s relevancy algorithms.
Each working day, there are nearly 40 thousand unique job opportunities on offer through social media. The workhound.co.uk real-time search uses semantic search technology to filter an index these UK-based job offers.
