Indeed Integration

Notice: As of 2 November 2020, we  are not longer selling the Indeed Integration addon, either as part of the core addon bundle or as a standalone addon.

Due to some changes that Indeed has made to their API, it is no longer possible to retrieve job information, which drastically reduces the usefulness of the Indeed Integration add-on. Indeed Integration will no longer be sold on

We continue to offer support for the duration of your active subscriptions. Also, documentation remains available, should you need it. If you have any questions or concerns we’re happy to help, just open a ticket.

Indeed Integration was a paid plugin for WP Job Manager 1.7+ which lets you query and show sponsored results from Indeed when listing jobs, and list Indeed jobs via a shortcode.

To install this plugin, please refer to the guide here:

↑ Back to Top Registering for an Indeed publisher ID

In order to start listing jobs from Indeed’s API you’ll need to register for the Indeed Publisher Program, and obtain a publisher ID. Note that in order to qualify for the Indeed Publisher Program, among other requirements, your site must generate over 10,000 legitimate, unique pageviews per day. Approval may take some days or more than a week to get, or the request may be rejected by Indeed. We have no control over this process.

Once registered and logged into your Indeed account:

  1. Go to the XML Feed tab.
  2. Find the Sample Request section
  3. 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:


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

Note: Indeed no longer allows free uploads of jobs to their site via XML feed.
