RSS is a versatile, time-saving tool and a simple way to display your latest vacancies. For Chameleon-i users, an RSS feed can be used to publish the latest vacancies online with one-click from a vacancy record. It can be linked to your website, or if you don’t have a website an RSS feed can act as a stand-alone feature to display job details and prompt candidates to apply. RSS feeds can also be syndicated with social networking sites including Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook so you can distribute your job opportunities with one-click.
RSS feeds provide a standard format for information so that it can be automatically collected and distributed. The feeds work as a bookmark to sites of interest and provide users with instant access to relevant content as soon as it's published. Users can scan headlines in their RSS reader or on an RSS page, and where interested click through to read the full article.
In terms of SEO, keeping your website relevant and frequently refreshed content-wise are both key to search engine optimisation (SEO) and RSS feeds encourage search engine spiders to crawl your website more frequently to boost your website's search engine rankings and help to increase traffic.
A standard RSS Feed module will give you a feed that you can insert into your website as a clickable RSS Feed icon. This enables your users to click on the job and send an email to a designated email recipient if they want to apply for the job.
If you have an integrated website with Chameleon-i your RSS Feed can be set up so that when a potential candidate clicks on the job they can be redirected to the page and given the opportunity to register and apply - sending the details back through your Chameleon-i account.
When you have ordered your RSS Feed module, you will receive a unique URL (Universal Resource Locator) or web address which you would then use to point to your RSS Feed.
