Vacancy appears on channels I haven't posted to

Search engines and job board/ channel 'spiders' can display publicly listed jobs on their own sites. This article describes how this occurs and how you can restrict it from happening.

Why do my vacancies/ jobs advertisements appear in places I haven't posted to?

Some sites (e.g. Indeed) use a 'spider' to trawl through career sites and publish jobs on their own website.   If a candidate clicks on the link from Indeed, it will divert the candidate back to the original source/ channel where the job was posted to (most likely your career site), and the candidate will be registered in EasyCruit as coming from your career site, rather than Indeed.

How can I prevent my vacancy/ job advertisement displaying on sites I haven't posted to?

The EasyCruit Customer Success Team can configure your career site to request such sites not to index or include pages, by setting the robots.txt file to 'no robots', and amend the career site pages accordingly.  If you have created your own career site using the EasyCruit XML feed, you will need to undertake these changes yourself. Unfortunately not all search engines or job boards respect this listing, in which case you should contact them directly.


If you have jobs which are internal only, and not for the general public, you should post these jobs to a dedicated internal career site, and the EasyCruit Customer Success Team can restrict access to the site in the following ways:

  1. IP restriction - the only people able to access the site and therefore jobs are those who are connected to the specified IP address, e.g. over VPN or internal network.
  2. Login - a user name and password is required for people to access the internal career site. This could also be used to restrict access for Recruitment Agencies, so the agency can view jobs you want them to recruit for, and they enter candidates directly themselves.
