Why aren’t my jobs appearing on Indeed?

You may be asking “Why aren’t my jobs appearing on Indeed?”. CVMinder posts your jobs to Indeed and other jobs boards. However, job posting doesn’t guarantee job visibility.

There are a few reasons why your jobs may not be appearing in Indeed search results, including failure to adhere to the Indeed​ ​job posting guidelines​. Your jobs may have previously appeared in search results, but Indeed can subsequently prevent them from appearing at any time. ​ Your jobs must adhere to Indeed’s guidelines to avoid quality issues and maximise the opportunity for job visibility. We encourage you to familiarise yourself with their[1] educational materials.

The top 5 reasons why jobs don’t appear in Indeed search results
1.  Indeed hasn’t received your jobs yet

It generally takes at least 24 hours for your jobs to appear on Indeed once added to the CVMinder job feed. To locate your jobs on Indeed, follow these instructions.

2.  Your job suffers reduced visibility by violating the Indeed ​job posting guidelines

Indeed encourages you to ensure that your jobs adhere to Indeed’s posting guidelines and to accept guidance from the CVMinder Team. Resources to help you address the most common job quality issues can be found here.

3.  Jobs are duplicated onsite

Although Indeed receives your jobs from CVMinder, aggregating listings from by-hand advertising, alternative career pages, staffing agencies, job boards and other sources can identify some duplication. Duplicates identified by Indeed can interfere with your CVMinder jobs visibility. Indeed does its best to favour the correct postings, but this can take time. If you believe your jobs are being duplicated, you should reach out to Indeed here.

4.  If Indeed believes you are a recruitment company

Recruitment company vacancies are only visible on Indeed if the job is sponsored. More information about Indeed’s policy can be found​ ​here.

5.  Your jobs are still being reviewed

Indeed’s mission is to Help People Get Jobs. The jobseeker is central to that mission and their Search Quality team continuously reviews jobs sent from all sources, including those from CVMinder. Jobs that adhere to Indeed’s job quality guidelines appear on Indeed faster. To find out more about Search Quality at Indeed please visit their Employer Help Centre.


If you have reviewed the Top 5 reasons why job don’t appear in Indeed search results and your jobs still aren’t appearing, you must reach out to Indeed here and use the following messaging:

“ I am a client of CVMinder, an ATS Integrated with Indeed, and my jobs are included in their comprehensive XML feed. I need a CS rep to review my jobs to determine if they are suitable for organic visibility, as per Indeed’s Quality Standards. “


[1] Jobs that do not meet Indeed’s standards may be subject to review and require additional information. Any listings Indeed believes to mislead the jobseeker, compromise their experience or fail to represent a “real” job may be removed from search results altogether. ​Please note: Indeed reserves the right to reject or remove any job or disable any Company’s account, for any or for no reason. Indeed is not bound to give every reason why a job or a Company is removed, but they nevertheless retain the right to remove any job, organic or sponsored, should they feel that doing so is in either their own or their users’ interest.
