Understanding Indeed’s Organic Visibility (Free) Option
At most plan levels, when you put your first job online, your active jobs will be sent to Indeed.com to reach Indeed’s 140 million unique visitors each month through organic visibility. We get asked a lot of questions about how this works by employers so we thought to ourselves, there’s no time like the present to share as much info as we can with our employers about how the organic visibility option for Indeed works.
Organic Visibility - What is it?
Let’s start with an explanation of what exactly organic visibility is. Indeed sources job postings for its job board through a variety of means, including receiving jobs through a live feed from Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS’s). Employers also have the option to pay for premium sponsorship for their job posting to bump the posting’s visibility in a job seeker’s search results. When we refer to organic visibility, it means that a job posting is “ranked solely by relevance or date” in an Indeed.com website visitor’s job search results. “These are the latest jobs related to your search query, and will naturally fall back in search results over time as new roles are added.”
Indeed may need to conduct a review of your company before they will post your active jobs and give them organic visibility to job seekers. This review process is performed by Indeed’s Search Quality Team, whose job it is to evaluate job postings to make sure they are unique, high quality jobs posted by legitimate companies.
