1. Make jobs available on relevant landing pages
Links to jobs are available via optimized landing pages that are frequently revisited by Googlebot and other crawlers. The less is the number of jobs linked, the higher is the weight of the linked page… Watch out for bounce rates and make sure only relevant jobs are placed on optimized landing pages.
