    anyone using Indeed.com Referral Program and actually getting paid?

    I wrote a script for one of the sites i manage
    it pulls in indeed.com's xml and spits back job searches

    and the site gets a few hundered views
    and indeed's site shows the page views

    but they show no clicks

    I find this to be almost as unbelieveable as Commission Junction

    I mean 1000 views and not one click?

    anyway if you have used www.indeed.com
    and have actually got paid
    i would be really interested in knowing what you think might be the reason my click throughs aren't

    I mean I even clicked through myself once or twice while setting it up but its not showing on their account stats page.

    anyway I am really disapointed at this point.

    Indeed

    By default, Indeed's XML API will pass organic (non-paid) job results on any given query. I will need to view your integration to confirm, but most likely this is why you are seeing 0 clicks while still growing your page views.

    If you email me a link to your integration I can take a look and make suggestions to increase your revenue opportunity.

    You can reach me at mmolinari [at] indeed.com

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Thanks Matt

    I think it is just a misconception on my part

    I thought I was going to have clicks recorded when

    someone viewed the xml feed on my site
    then clicked through to your site and viewed an individual ad
    then clicked out to the job on a remote companies site

    but I understand now that since the jobs in the Xml feed are
    jobs that you guys harvest off of company sites
    and they are not payed job listings for you

    publishers only get paid when someone goes from my site
    to your site and then clicks on a blue job ad


    Also you dont get paid for those text links generated in the publisher account

    and you don't get paid for visitors using the job search form generated in the publisher account


    but you do get paid when they click a job roll banner ad
    are all the jobs in a JobRoll banner ad paying?


    anyway
    This is not a big deal for me right now
    its just that I am redesigning the site so I am looking at a lot of things

    Just having access to the feed is worth it because it has the potential to attract and retain visitors.


    thanks for the reply

    I have started a job site recently and used Indeed API feeds on my page and I am having the exact same problem, i got about 70 pageviews for one day and no sponsored clicks even though i had job seekers and myself click on a bunch of these links. What am i doing wrong? what do i need to correct in order to get the clicks recognized and make revenue? Indeed hasnt emailed me back in over a week, I'm very upset.

    Indeed why NOT

    After 60.000 page views, I've got $0 from that Indeed Publisher program.
    Whoever is considering joining, think again.

    Same here. I have sent them a message, and received no reply. So, I removed the feed. Then, 3 weeks later (!!!) a reply came, saying that they cannot see the feed on my site.

    So, IME, avoid: it's a timewaste.
