Website optimisation and search engine marketing
In this section
Optimise your website for search engines
This one is at the top because it’s a big one and the success of some of the other tips depends on it.
Technical SEO refers to the practice of optimising the underlying structure and technical aspects of your website in order to improve its visibility and ranking in search engine results.
One key aspect of technical SEO is making sure that your website is mobile-friendly and optimised for all devices. This means that your website should be easily readable and navigable on a variety of devices, including smartphones and tablets. The website should be responsive, and content should be easy to access and read on smaller screens.
Make sure that your website is properly indexed by search engines, this can be done by submitting an XML sitemap and setting up Google Search Console (Tip #9). This will allow search engines to discover and crawl your website’s pages, making it more likely that they will appear in search engine results.
Ensure that your website loads quickly and efficiently, and that it doesn’t have any broken links or errors. You can use tools such as Google PageSpeed Insights and Search Console to check for potential issues, and make sure that your website is running optimally.
Technical SEO also include making sure that your website is structured properly with appropriate headings and meta tags, and having appropriate URLs, which can help search engines to better understand the structure of your site and the relevance of your content to users.
Job board SEO: The recruiters guide
Google for Jobs
Google for Jobs is a feature by Google that allows job seekers to search for job listings from various sources, including company career sites, job boards, and recruitment agencies, all in one place.
In our research we found that only around 25% of recruitment agencies that list jobs on their websites are optimising for Google for Jobs.
By having your job listings on Google for Jobs, it makes them more discoverable by job seekers and increases your chances of getting more applicants.
To do this, you can add job listings on your website, and use structured data to mark up the job listings in a way that Google can understand. This can be done through JSON-LD, Microdata or RDFa.
By making it easy for job seekers to find your listings and apply, you’ll increase the chances of attracting the right candidates, which in turn can help to increase the traffic to your recruitment agency website.
Keep your job listings updated, as this will help to keep your listing relevant and boost your chances of appearing in the search results.

Build your backlinks
Backlinks are links from other websites that point to your website. These links are important because they signal to search engines that other sites consider your site to be valuable and trustworthy, which can help to improve your website’s search engine rankings.
One way to get backlinks is by creating high-quality, valuable content that other websites or blogs would want to link to (see “Create and share valuable content” below). This can include job search tips, career advice, or industry news and insights.
Reach out to other websites or blogs in your industry and ask them to link to your website.
Another way to get backlinks is through guest blogging or participating in online communities related to your industry, this can be a great way to get your content in front of a larger audience and potentially get backlinks from other websites.
It’s important to focus on getting backlinks from reputable and authoritative websites, as these will have a bigger impact on your website’s search engine rankings.
Monitor your backlinks and take actions to remove any low-quality or toxic backlinks, to maintain the good health of your website’s backlink profile.
Create and share valuable content
Create content that is relevant, informative and useful to your target audience, such as job search tips, career advice, or industry news and insights.
This type of content can help position your agency as an authority in the field, and provide valuable assistance to job seekers and employers.
Think about your target audience and what kind of information they’re looking for. Consider different formats, such as:
- blog posts,
- and social media posts.
This will allow you to reach a broader audience and appeal to different preferences and consumption habits.
Once you’ve created your content, share it across different channels. Share it on your website, social media platforms, and email campaigns, as well as any other platforms that are relevant to your target audience. Consider reaching out to other websites or blogs in your industry to share your content and get it in front of a larger audience.
Whenever devising a piece of content, always put yourself in your audience’s shoes first.

Use your business knowledge to address the current pain points of the particular industry while providing unique value.Julia Krawcewicz | Marketing Manager at Priority Recruitment
Imagine you’re going to the gym but when you get there, you’ve only got 1 exercise bike and a couple of dumbbells. No pool. No music. It’s empty, boring, and looks crap.
You won’t be going back again. That’s the same with websites.
If there’s nothing there for visitors to check out, people won’t come back. Or if you don’t keep adding to it (e.g. videos, guides, blogs, jobs etc) – then you give visitors no reason to return.
You’ve got to create a website that it’s worth coming back to. Websites are only good if you keep adding content. And if you tie it into a great marketing database that you can subsequently email and prospect to, then new business development becomes much easier.Rich Gibbard | Recbound
Offer free resources or tools on your website
Create content that is valuable and relevant to your target audience, such as job search tips, resume templates, or salary calculators.
This type of content can help position your agency as an authority in the field, and provide valuable assistance to job seekers and employers.
Consider giving access to your agencies data and research such as job market analysis and industry trends that will be helpful for the visitors to understand the current employment environment.
You want to make your agency’s website a go-to place for employment related information.
When you’re developing your free resources and tools, make sure to keep your target audience in mind and ensure that they align with the services your agency offers. Also, make sure to promote these resources and tools through your website, social media platforms and email marketing campaigns.
Optimise your website for mobile
More and more people are accessing the internet from their phones, so it’s important to make sure your website is mobile-friendly.
Mobile optimisation means making sure that your website is easily readable and navigable on a variety of devices, including smartphones and tablets. The website should be responsive, which means that it automatically adjusts to fit the screen size of the device being used to access it.
By ensuring that your website is mobile-friendly, you’ll be providing a better user experience for those who access your site from a mobile device and it will also ensure that your website will be properly indexed by search engines as well.
You can use tools such as Google’s mobile-friendly test, Google PageSpeed Insights, or similar tools to check if your website is mobile-friendly. These tools can help you identify any issues that may be preventing your website from being fully optimised for mobile.
By making it easy for potential clients to access your website on mobile devices, you’ll increase the chances of them engaging with your recruitment agency and that will drive more traffic to your site.
Local SEO tactics
Local SEO is a set of techniques that optimise your website to rank higher in search results for specific geographic locations.
One way to do this is by including location-specific keywords in your website’s content, like the name of your city, state or region, this will help search engines understand where your business is located and make it easier for potential clients in the area to find you.
Making sure that your business is listed on relevant directories and platforms, like Google My Business, this will allow potential clients to easily find your business contact information and location.
Include positive customer reviews in these platforms. This can help your business to stand out in search results and attract more traffic to your website.
It’s also important to make sure that your website is mobile-friendly (have we mentioned that yet? 😜), this way users can easily access your website and find information from their mobile devices, which is the device of choice for local search.
Google Business Profile
Google Business Profile (formerly Google My Business) is a free tool offered by Google that allows businesses to manage their online presence across Google, including Search and Maps. The tool allows businesses to verify their information such as their address, phone number, business hours, and services offered, which will then be displayed to users who search for related keywords on Google.
By claiming and verifying your business’s GBP listing, your agency can increase its visibility in Google’s local search results, making it more likely that potential clients will find the business when searching for related products or services in the area.
Google Search Console
Submit your sitemap and monitor your website’s performance in search results.
Google Search Console can help you generate more traffic for your recruitment agency website. It will:
- alert you of any technical issues that may be hurting your visibility in search results, and give you data on which keywords and pages are performing best
- show your click-through rate and historical data on your website’s performance, so you can monitor how your changes affect your traffic over time
- show you backlinks to your website and you can use this information to reach out to other websites to request more links
GSC is a powerful tool that can help you improve your website’s visibility in search results and drive more traffic to your recruitment agency website.
Google Analytics is a powerful tool that can help you track and analyse your website traffic.
You can gain valuable insights into how visitors interact with your site, what pages they visit, and how long they stay. This information can help you identify opportunities for improvement and make data-driven decisions to drive more traffic to your site.
To get started with Google Analytics, first create a free account. Then, add the Google Analytics tracking code to your website. This code should be placed in the header of every page on your site. Once you’ve done this, you can begin to track your website traffic and analyse key metrics such as page views, bounce rate, and number of sessions.
One of the key ways to use Google Analytics to drive more traffic to your website is to use the data to identify which pages are performing well and which ones are not. You can then optimise the pages that are underperforming by making changes such as improving the content, making the site more user-friendly, and optimising for SEO.
Additionally, you can use Google Analytics data to track the sources of your traffic, such as search engines and social media, and then invest more resources into the channels that are driving the most visitors to your site.

We like Fathom. It’s not as fully featured as Google Analytics, but it gives us most of what we need without invading the privacy of our visitors.

Participate in industry events and conferences
Participating in industry events and conferences is a great way to promote your website and drive traffic to your recruitment website.
I personally gained nearly all of my Twitter followers from speaking at industry events.
Here are a few ways you can do this:
- Exhibit at the conference: If the conference has a trade show or exhibition component, consider setting up a booth where attendees can learn more about your company and website. Make sure to have brochures, business cards, and other promotional materials with your website URL on them.
- Speak at the conference: Many conferences are looking for speakers to present on relevant topics. If you have expertise in an area related to your business, consider submitting a proposal to speak at the conference. This will give you an opportunity to present your company and website to a large group of attendees.
- Attend the conference: Even if you don’t exhibit or speak at the conference, attending the event is still an effective way to promote your website. Take advantage of networking opportunities to connect with potential customers and clients, and make sure to have your business card and promotional materials with you.
- Use Social Media to create buzz: Before, during and after the conference, use your social media to share about the event, interesting conversations and people you met, or anything else that would be of interest to your target audience, this will help you to increase your visibility and generate a buzz around your company.
- Utilise Email Marketing: Send out an email campaign to your current clients, and anyone who has shown interest in your company in the past, telling them about your participation in the conference and your booth details, giving them a chance to connect with you at the conference.
- Partner up with other companies: Look for other companies that are attending the conference, and see if you can partner up with them to promote each other’s businesses. This can be a great way to reach new audiences and increase your visibility at the conference.
- Use QR code and landing pages to track results: Using a QR code on your materials can allow you to track who scanned it and what pages they visited on your website and similarly, a landing page specific to the event will allow you to track the traffic from the conference.
Use email marketing
Email marketing is a strategy that involves using email to promote your business and reach out to potential candidates. It’s a great way to stay in touch with job seekers and keep them informed about new job openings.
The key to using email marketing to drive more traffic to your website is to first build a list of email subscribers. You can do this by adding a sign-up form to your website, or by collecting email addresses at networking events and job fairs. Once you have a list of subscribers, you can then send them regular emails with updates about new job openings and information about your agency.
Just be wary of privacy and data protection laws!
When crafting your emails, make sure to use an engaging subject line that will catch the readers attention and make them want to open the email. Include a clear call to action that encourages readers to visit your website and learn more about the job openings.
Use influencer marketing
Influencer marketing involves partnering with individuals who have a large following on social media platforms to promote your brand. To generate more traffic for your recruitment agency website:
- Identify influencers in the employment or career development space with a significant following on social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram.
- Reach out to the influencers and introduce your recruitment agency, and present the opportunity for collaboration.
- Work with the influencer to create a campaign that aligns with your agency’s goals and resonates with the influencer’s followers.
- Track the results by monitoring your website analytics to measure the impact of the campaign on website traffic. By leveraging the influence of an industry-related influencer, your recruitment agency can tap into a larger audience of potential candidates and achieve more credibility in the field.
Collaborate with other businesses and organisations to co-promote each other’s websites
Collaborating with other businesses and organisations can be a powerful way to generate more traffic for your recruitment agency website.
The key to success is to identify businesses and organisations that serve a similar target audience, and that align with your recruitment agency’s values and goals.
Once you’ve identified potential partners, reach out to them and explain the potential benefits of working together. Establish a clear agreement on how each side will promote the other’s website and track the results to measure the impact of the partnership.
Make sure that the partnership is beneficial for both parties, for example by cross-promoting each other’s job postings, co-branded content, or referral programs. This will help to increase your agency’s credibility and reach a wider audience, while building mutually supportive and cost-efficient relationships.
Create and distribute press releases to relevant news outlets and industry publications
Start by crafting a compelling press release that highlights recent news or developments at your agency.
Research and identify the most relevant news outlets and industry publications to send your press release to, and provide them with any additional materials that may be helpful to create a story.
Don’t forget to distribute your press release through your own website and social media platforms as well.
Offer special promotions or discounts to encourage people to visit your website
Create an incentive that is valuable and relevant to your target audience. This can include discounts on your agency’s services, bonuses for signing up for your agency’s newsletter, or exclusive access to job listings.
To ensure maximum impact, you should make sure to advertise your special promotions or discounts across your website, social media platforms, and email campaigns.
Consider targeting different promotions or discounts to different segments of your audience, like a special offer for new clients or a referral program.
It’s also important to make sure that your promotions or discounts are time-sensitive, it creates a sense of urgency and exclusivity.
You can leverage your existing client base. By offering incentives for existing clients to refer new clients to your agency, this can help to increase both your brand awareness and website traffic.
Start a podcast
Podcasts allow you to reach a wider audience and provide valuable information and insights to your target audience. They can also help you build a relationship with your listeners and establish your agency as a trusted resource for job seekers and employers.
Starting a podcast can require a significant amount of time and resources. Have a solid plan for your podcast content and promotion, and be able to commit to consistently producing and publishing episodes.
Be a podcast guest
Guesting on podcasts can be a great way for a recruitment agency to drive more traffic to their website and establish themselves as a thought leader in their industry. By appearing as a guest on relevant podcasts, you can reach a wider audience and provide valuable information and insights to your target audience. This will help you build your agency’s reputation and credibility, and can also lead to new job opportunities and clients.
Being a guest on a podcast can also provide a backlink to your website, which can help with SEO and drive more traffic to your site. It can also be a good way to build relationships with other thought leaders and influencers in your industry.
However, just like starting your own podcast, guesting on podcasts also requires time and resources. Research potential podcasts to guest on and to prepare for the interview beforehand.
QR codes are a type of barcode that can be scanned with a phone camera, which then directs the user to a specific website or webpage.
A recruitment agency could use QR codes in various ways:
- Print them on business cards, brochures, posters, or any other printed materials.
- Include them in email signatures or in digital advertisements.
- Use them at events or job fairs, to quickly provide easy access to the agency’s website or a landing page with job opportunities.
However, it’s important to note that QR codes are not as widely used as they once were. Many people are not aware of how to use them, or don’t have a QR code reader installed on their phone. Therefore, it’s important for a recruitment agency to provide clear instructions on how to scan the QR code, and also make sure that the landing page is mobile-friendly, easy to navigate and provides valuable information.
