The Rise of Search Feeds

Mary Hodder blogs about her evolving feed-reading habits. She shares that most of her feed subscriptions are search-based, mainly using keywords and URLs with services like Technorati, and that she is relying more and more heavily on such “search feeds” as opposed to traditional RSS feeds from individual blogs or legacy news sources.

If search feeds are superior for news and blogs, it is even clearer that they are the only viable approach for classified advertisement feeds. Who could possibly want to view all jobs from one publisher? Certainly not a job seeker. You want to drill down to the jobs that fit your search criteria and then receive an aggregated feed drawn from multiple publishers. That’s the way Indeed works. It’s the only method that makes sense for the distribution of this kind of information.
