January 09, 2024

Google updated their job posting structured data guidance in order to change the requirements of how to best keep Google notified of new webpages and changes to existing webpages. Google Job Posting Structured Data GuidanceGoogle’s job posting structured data guidance is designed to help publishers become eligible for enhanced visibility in Google Search results through interactive job listings in search. It also provides an overview of the process of adding, testing and maintaining job posting structured data. For job posting URLs, we recommend using the Indexing API instead of sitemaps because the Indexing API prompts Googlebot to crawl your page sooner. Google also removed the recommendation to use a GET request for getting the sitemap crawled from the guidance:“If you’re not using the Indexing API, submit a new sitemap to Google by sending a GET request to the following URL: https://www.google.com/ping?sitemap=https://www.example.com/sitemap.xml”Read the updated Job Posting Structured Data guidance here:Job posting (JobPosting) structured data for Job SearchFeatured Image by Shutterstock/object_photo
