Chatter: Indeed, ZoomInfo, and Military.com

Indeed’s Evolution…

Indeed.com announced it is beta testing a PPA solution with select clients where advertisers only pay for job applicants, as opposed to just visitors, according to blogger Joel Cheesman.

He likens it to an “evolution from the pay-per-click model currently in fashion.”

Cheesman notes that it is a “very interesting development in the online recruitment space that helps push the envelope further away from the flat-fee model that has thrived since the dawn of the job board.”

ZoomInfo’s Daily Crawl…

At last week’s Recruiting 2007 Conference and Expo, ZoomInfo announced it will update the business information search engine’s data on a daily basis beginning at the end of the month.

With this new architecture in place, ZoomInfo will have the ability and capacity to crawl hundreds of millions of pages daily, and present the new information to ZoomInfo users each day.

The company says it is getting “smarter” about how it crawls the Web, listening to customers’ requests to decrease the lag time in updating the information.
