Indeed's CEO responds to recruitosphere

Yesterday I had the chance to interview Paul Forster of The bulk of my talk with him will be out monday over on the secrets blog. But today I wanted to help answer a few questions posed recently by some fellow bloggers.

About a month ago JGo chided Indeed and SimplyHired for not blogging more. When I quoted Goldberg's comments to him he said that "everybody has a different approach to blogging", inferrring that he's just not interested in using Indeed's blog the same way Jobster uses theirs.

Then there's Job Search Engine Guy who dug into the quality of craigslist. In it, he asks all the major job vertical why they should bother to index craigs job since most of them are crap. Paul responds with this comment:

"Don't throw out the wheat with the chaff! If there are spam or duplicate job postings on a job board, the ideal solution for vertical search engines is not to exclude the job board entirely, but to exclude the spam postings and duplicates. does precisely this with advanced spam and de-duplication filters."

Paul also indicated to me that they are constantly tweaking the filters on Indeed to look for "bad jobs" such as work at home scams, pay money to work, company names which might not be reputable, those that ask for social security numbers, etc.

Finally on Joel's take that flipdog is going vertical, Forster was skeptical, saying "it remains to be seen" what Monster will do with it.
