So here’s where this leaves us.  If you want to run an absolutely thorough search for every possible job opening that gets published on the Internet, and are willing to fight through an enormous amount of overlap between listings, I’d set up daily search alerts on both Indeed and SimplyHired.  This way, you’ll be guaranteed not to miss a single opportunity that might be found on one site, but not the other.  This will also ensure less “lag” in terms of hearing about a particular opening, since it’s entirely possible that one of these sites will pick up a particular listing a day or two faster than the other one.

Indeed, LinkedIn, and Simply Hired are some of the most well-known job boards, and are equally matched in terms of features offered.

Alas, I just wasn’t able to go to that extent in my above experiment, although I did point out in paragraph 5 of my article that SimplyHired definitely was known to have more issues, in terms of lead quality, than Indeed. copyright SimplyHired ©2020 The links go directly to the company involved. After your recommendation I tried simplyhired.com. The team here at SimplyHired has created some thorough resources on everything from how to craft a resume or cover letter to how to negotiate a new job offer. These results are consistent with what I’ve observed for years, which is that SimplyHired tends to find almost twice as many leads as Indeed.com.  It wins the “quantity” trophy hands-down, which I’m assuming is due to simply having a better technology or methodology for extracting leads from the far reaches of the web.  This being said, however, some folks might argue that the leads on SimplyHired aren’t quite of the same “quality” found on the other sites.  That the bigger numbers might be due to repeated listings or allowing more fishy-sounding opportunities to creep into the database.  Frankly, there may be some tiny grain of truth to this, but even after watching closely for this possibility I didn’t see any compelling evidence that the jobs on SimplyHired tend to be any less “real” or less legitimate, for the most part, than the ones found on Indeed.com.
