Joel Cheesman, Founder Morale.me

Joel CheesmanWhen people talk about SEO (search engine optimization), it usually involves complicated geek-speak about algorithms, backlinks and PageRank. That’s the stuff optimizing for Google involves. However, SEO also includes job search engines like Indeed, Simply Hired, Juju and others, commonly referred to as vertical search engines.

Even traditional job boards present their listings in a search engine results format. And the good news? PageRank and backlinks need not apply. Basic blocking and tackling can go a long way on these sites and give you a big leg-up on your competition. In this presentation, you’ll learn the simple steps necessary to get your job listings to the top of the search results on these ever-growing job search engines.

Attendees will learn how to:

– Do keyword research so your job content includes the words job seekers are actually typing in a search box.
– Strategically add high-impact keywords to job postings for best rankings.
– Effectively outrank job board listings on the most popular job search engines.
