Lima, Ohio (PRWEB) February 5, 2009
myStaffingPro, a leader in applicant tracking, announces the release of optimized career portals for customers. Under the guidance of search engine optimization expert Joel Cheesman of Cheezhead, myStaffingPro’s redesign will offer career portal templates that adhere to search engine optimization best practices.
HRSEO expert Joel Cheesman of Cheezhead.com said, "It's refreshing to see an applicant tracking solution implement some basic SEO principles into its service. It should benefit their clients in numerous ways, including driving relevant candidate flow in a cost-efficient manner."
The enhancements include a search engine-friendly list of openings, “alt” tags <alt> for all images, and the ability to track visitors with Google Analytics.
The optimized career portals enable search engines to crawl the site and index the openings. Once indexed, potential applicants can then search for a client’s job openings through a search engine. To maximize exposure, myStaffingPro creates the client’s job opening list with filters by position title, location, and category. Career Portal optimization improves the client’s online visibility by listing openings in the engine’s search results.
Customers can track their SEO success with Google Analytics and measure traffic sources, and the percentage of visitors who apply for a position. With these tools, customers of myStaffingPro can benefit from the new recruiting strategies that are available with SEO and social networking. The career portal enhancements enable clients to expand their recruiting opportunities from paid job boards to search engines, job aggregators and social networks.
Product developer Doug Robison added, “myStaffingPro® brings forth the next generation in career portals by leveraging Web 2.0 tools and features, enabling the client to expand its reach when searching for new applicants.”
