There are a few reasons why your jobs may not initially appear in the Indeed search results, including failure to adhere to Indeed's job posting guidelines. Even if jobs appear in search results initially, they can stop being displayed later. We encourage you to read through and familiarize yourself with Indeed's educational materials and work directly to ensure your jobs adhere to Indeed's guidelines to mitigate job quality issues.
Here are the top 5 reasons jobs don’t appear in search results:
1. Indeed haven’t received their jobs yet.
It generally takes at least 24 hours for their jobs to show up on Indeed once you’ve added within TriNet Applicant Tracking. To locate your jobs on Indeed, follow these instructions.
2. Your job has reduced visibility due to violations of your job posting guidelines.
You can find resources that address the top job quality issues here.
3. Jobs are duplicated onsite.
Indeed is a search engine and even if Indeed has a direct feed from TriNet Applicant Tracking, Indeed may still aggregate listings from employer career pages, staffing agencies, job boards and other sources. Indeed does its best to filter out duplicate postings but it can take time for Indeed's system to identify duplicates. If you think a job is being duplicated, please reach out to us here.
4. Indeed views your company as a recruitment-based company (US/CA only).
Recruiting companies are only visible on our site if the job is sponsored. More information about Indeed's policy can be found here.
5. Your jobs are still being reviewed.
The jobseeker is the focus of Indeed’s mission to Help People Get Jobs. Indeed's Search Quality team
continuously reviews jobs that are sent to us from all sources, including from ATSs. Jobs that adhere to Indeed's job quality guidelines get your jobs on the site faster. To find out more about Search Quality at Indeed you can go to Indeed's Employer Help Center.
After reviewing the Top 5 reasons above and your jobs still are not appearing on Indeed, you must reach out to Indeed here and use the following messaging:
“ I am a new client of TriNet's Applicant Tracking tool, an Integrated ATS with Indeed, and my jobs are included in their comprehensive XML feed. I need a CS rep to review my jobs to determine if they are suitable for organic visibility per Indeed’s Quality Standards.“
