Indeed Integration

Indeed Integration is a paid plugin for WP Job Manager 1.7+ which lets you query and show sponsored results from Indeed when listing jobs, list Indeed jobs via a shortcode, and list your own listings on Indeed by generating an XML feed.

↑ Back to Top Registering for an Indeed publisher ID

In order to start listing jobs from Indeed’s API you’ll need a publisher ID. To get this:

  1. Register for an Indeed account
  2. Once registered and logged in, go to the XML Feed tab.
  3. Find the Sample Request section
  4. In that section it will state what your publisher ID is (it’s a 16 digit number). Copy and paste this into the Publisher ID field under Job Listings > Settings > Indeed Integration.

↑ Back to Top How Indeed Jobs work

This plugin lets you backfill your job board with results from Indeed dynamically. If a user searches and no results are found in your database for example, you can set this plugin to pull in X results from Indeed’s API and display them instead.

Any jobs shown will link right through to Indeed where the user can read more details about a position.

↑ Back to Top Settings

The settings are found in Job Listings > Settings > Indeed Integration. The following settings are available:

The default query settings

When a variable isn’t set, for example prior to entering a keyword, these settings control what results are shown.

Backfill settings

This settings control when Indeed jobs get shown and where.

Once configured, Indeed jobs will be listed where appropriate.

↑ Back to Top Shortcodes

The Indeed plugin comes with one shortcode: [indeed_jobs]. This lets you list purely jobs from Indeed based on a search you configure. It supports the following arguments:

Example:

[indeed_jobs limit=10 jt=fulltime l=NJ]

↑ Back to Top XML Feed Export

Indeed lets you list your own jobs on Indeed if you provide them with an XML Feed. This plugin can generate the feed if you enable it in settings.

All jobs which are published and non-filled will be included in your feed, and when enabled it will be found at `yoursite.com/indeed-job-feed/’. Once your feed is setup and running, submit it to Indeed here.

Note that Indeed will only accept an XML feed if there are no listings older than 30 days.
