Search engine optimization (SEO) is a method of inbound marketing that makes your page findable and trackable by Google, Bing, and other search engines. Job descriptions that are clear, targeted, and searchable attract the most relevant and qualified job seekers to apply to your open roles.

By having the right title and meta description for your careers site and each one of your jobs, you will have search engines such as Google, Bing, and DuckDuckGo index them properly. Your jobs will therefore have a higher chance of staying on top of the search results of potential candidates.
