The Top Jobs Page is a standard part of the Jobs2Web footer implemented on each client’s public site. The page displays a list of auto-generated pages created based on searches that successfully lead to the Jobs2Web platform. For example, if a user searches “Minneapolis IT Jobs” and ends up on one of our clients site, the system will generate a page for that search, which is contained on the “Top Jobs Search” page.

The keyword searches are contained in the KeywordRank table of the [ENG:alpha-reporting-jww] database. There is a stored procedure that maintains 90 days of records in the keywordRank table, and deletes the 91st day or anything older than 90 days. The stored procedure does not truncate the table. It deletes the required row(s) in keywordRank, but does not reset the identity value.

There are also two filters that govern the display of the Top Jobs Page, the “Filter Out” and “Filter Back” settings. CS can add keywords to the ‘Phrase Filter Out,’ and these terms will be excluded real-time (should be immediate) from client’s Top Job Search links. The ‘Phrase Filter Out’ will do an exact match.

Filter Out allows a client to exclude certain words or phrases from the searches that appear on this page. Filter Back pushes designated searches to the end of the list, rather than the beginning. Filter out and Filter back are configured in the Site Setting and contained in the ?'Sites' table of the same database that houses the search results. For example if a user searches "Minneapolis SuccessFactors Jobs" and ends up on the career site, the next day a page will appear in the Top Jobs Page with that title.

Results on the Top Job Search page are displayed based on the number of searches for a given keyword string, and then are additionally prioritized using the Filter Out and Filter Back options.


Note that the data used to create these pages is not available to customers to extract or report on from the RMK platform. Customers can of course submit an enhancement request to have this type of information available in RMK in the future.

Note that the Top Jobs doesn't work on the preview instance, because the site is not indexed.
