share

The SJB Google Job Search Add-On is responsible to integrate the Google Structured Data against each job so google can identify your jobs. It also does the instant indexing of the jobs on google, which means you can index your job URL instantly on google when you publish/update and remove a job.

For the functioning of Google Job Search, please fill the following details in the Location Details meta box on the job detail page:

  • Street Address
  • Address Region(State/Province)
  • Postal Address
  • Country
  • Currency
  • Salary

For Google Indexing, please first read the installation guide and then add the JSON file code under Job Board> Settings> Google Indexing API tab.

Important: Google does not guarantee that your structured data will show up in search results, even if your page is marked up correctly according to the Rich Results Test. Please go through Google’s general structured data guidelines.

Note: This add-on needs a 20MB upload limit. If you are facing a maximum execution timeout error then please increase “max_execution_time” in your server configuration(php.ini).

Q: What is the cause of missing or incorrect job location?
A: Google tries to match the value(s) provided for the jobLocation, addressLocality, or addressRegion properties information to a physical location. That is why when the values don’t match with the physical location it displays either missing or incorrect.

Q: Why Google is not showing logos for my job?
A: Most of the time it happens due to the logo size. Please make sure that the logo must be 112x112px, at minimum in order for the logo to display correctly. The image URL must be crawlable and indexable for it to work. For further details please have a look at the google structure data guidelines.
