Indeed.com is an employment-related metasearch engine for job listings launched in November 2004.[2] As a single-topic search engine, it is also an example of vertical search. Indeed is currently available in over 50 countries and 28 languages. In 2010, Indeed surpassed Monster.com to become the most visited job site in the United States.[3] As of March 2014, Indeed reaches over 140 million unique visitors every month.[4]

The site aggregates job listings from thousands of websites, including job boards, newspapers, associations, and company career pages. In 2011, Indeed began allowing job seekers to apply directly to jobs on Indeed's site;[5] also in 2011, Indeed began offering resume posting and storage.[6] Indeed is based in Stamford, Connecticut.

History[edit]

Indeed was co-founded by Paul Forster and Rony Kahan.[7]

In 2005, Indeed launched their beta version of what they refer to as "pay-per-click job advertising network".[8] In addition to searching job postings, it also allows the occurrence of words therein to be plotted over time, ostensibly as an indicator of trends in the job markets.

On October 1st, 2012, Indeed became an independent operating unit of Recruit Co. Ltd. [9]

Services[edit]

Services include job search, job trends, resume upload, storage and search,[6] industry trends, salary search, job competition index, and website forums.
