Now that Google Jobs has been up and running for about a year I thought I would share some stats around how much traffic it actually generates on a monthly basis. Below is a screenshot of Analytics from a small board I run called Jobs With Remote. It has about 800-900 jobs on it at any given time. About 1/3 of the traffic is directly from Google Jobs.
Your results may vary but the easiest way to get on Google Jobs is to use a GJ friendly platform such as SmartJobBoard or Jobboard.io and submit the sitemap to Google’s Search Console. generally speaking the more jobs you have the more traffic you can get.
I have still seen some issues with a few job boards. A client of mine who happens to use Jobboard.io has a few hundred jobs. Some appear on GJ while others do not. Hard to tell why they aren’t picking them all up, ….de-duping could be part of it or they just haven’t refined the crawling as of yet.

What about dups? I assume all your jobs are not original to you, and that most are also on some bigger sites as well as a variety of ATSs.
All my jobs on my site actually come from other job boards so I am not sure how many have already beed indexed by GJ. In theory, GJ is de-duping so the multiple apply buttons on the posting should pick up the job on other sites. Hard to predict any patterns in the early days of GJ so far.
Hey Chris, I always enjoy your stuff man. We have a Talent Driven hiring platform and have built our own job board for our hiring clients. Any thoughts or advice on how to get more traffic for them. Thanks man
Hi Chase, the only free ways to get traffic are Google Jobs, Social Media and Your Email list. Beyond that, you gotta pay to play my friend.
I’d be interested in knowing what we need to do to ensure our Jobs Boards are fully GDPR with new Euro legislation.
We are publishing lots of client information in the form of CV/Resumes that they upload.
What’s the best practise to stay on the right side of the law?
I’m not a GDPR expert so you’ll have to do some research on it. I do know you have to have a cookies opt-in and when a seeker deletes their data it has to be permanent deleted.
