    Why optimizingyour careersite and your own job listingsis not enough.
    Timeframe for Google to index your optimized job site may be one week to several weeks.
    By the time Google grabs your job siteindex and updated its information, the job you have promoted may have been filled.
    Google may also choose not to indexyour job site on a regular basis.
