What is Wordpress?

Wordpress is an open source content management system (CMS). It is a software that makes it easy to create your own website. The content of a website or blog can thus be easily created and managed without programming experience. The wordpress software is generally free for everyone, but a distinction must be made between wordpress.com and wordpress.org. With wordpress.com, you buy a plan and your website is managed by a provider. If you work with wordpress.org you are solely responsible for the administration and editing of your software. With wordpress, the functionality of a website can be supplemented by extensions. These are so-called plugins that can be added individually, for example, there are plugins for listing jobs on Google for Jobs.

What is Google for Jobs?

Google for Jobs is the new largest job board in the world. With Google's new tool, available jobs can be accessed directly from the Google search page. In order for job ads to appear on Google for Jobs, technical requirements must be met on your own website for Google to recognize the ads as such. But what if these requirements cannot be met? On Wordpress, some plugins have been made available to ensure job ads are placed on Google for Jobs. But how user-friendly and powerful are these plugins?

We took a closer look at three options for listing jobs on Google:

By optimizing for Google for Jobs, job ads can be activated and deactivated quite easily. You don't have to worry about the appropriate formatting either.
