If you own a Classified Ads website with public advertisements, include your ads in Trovit!
Follow these simple steps:

  1. Prepare a UTF-8 XML feed in the format specified for our Jobs vertical (see below)
  2. Download our XML Validator to ensure that your feed is Trovit friendly. The Validator will confirm that we can index your content correctly
  3. Send the URL link where we can read your XML feed to Contact Trovit (Example: http://www.yourdomain.com/trovit_feed.xml)

Please keep in mind that we only accept feeds containing job offers. We do not include ads for services, trainings, or business opportunities.

If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

XML feed format

Here are some simple guidelines for preparing an XML feed. You can use our Technical Specifications to see value restrictions for each tag. If you would like additional information about the XML format, check out Wikipedia.

*The feed should be written in UTF-8. The file has one ‘trovit’ tag, and one or more ‘ad’ elements. Each ‘ad’ element has the following fields:

REQUIRED FIELDS

The following fields are required in the feed as they contain the minimum amount of information necessary for our system to include your ads in Trovit.

  • id: id of the ad on your website (numeric or alphanumeric, however it must be unique because we use it to avoid duplicate entries)
  • url: URL of the ad on your website
  • title: title of the ad (a concise summary of the listing which does not contain your website’s name or URL).
  • content: job description (minimum of 30 characters). Please note that the quality of the description has a strong effect on the amount of visitors you will receive!

OPTIONAL FIELDS

Optional fields are not required in the feed. However, if you have the information, it’s best to include it! Trovit’s algorithm prioritizes higher-quality ads, so including more information will optimize your positioning in our search engine!

  • mobile_url: URL of the ad on your site when a user is browsing on a mobile device. Useful when your website has a mobile version.
  • company: name of the company hiring
  • experience: required minimum experience
  • requirements: job requirements
  • studies: required level of education
  • category: job category
  • contract: type of contract; permanent, temporary, contract, internship etc

  • city_area: city area or neighborhood
  • city: city name
  • region: state (state abbreviations are okay)
  • postcode: zipcode
