Google’s new selecting administration device, Hire, has a flawlessly planned site. In any case, writer Nate Dame calls attention to that they don’t appear to be following their own SEO best practices.
Hot on the foot sole areas of Google’s declaration that it has assembled a pursuit of employment motor comes Hire, Google’s new enlisting administration instrument.
Accessible to SMBs, Hire includes an authoritative layer into G Suite applications, permitting contracting supervisors and HR experts over an association to oversee competitor interchanges, get to recorded candidate information, and calendar interviews from one focal stage.
Many fascinating things have been said in regards to Hire in the days since its official dispatch. Some say Google is going up against LinkedIn and enrolling programming suppliers.

8 ways Google Hire comes up short at essential SEO
Contract is a flawless site. The outline is perfect, point of arrival content is clear and advantage driven, the site is portable inviting, and it stacks rapidly.

Contract gives an extraordinary beginning client encounter. In any case, on the off chance that you look only somewhat more profound, there are not kidding issues.
1. Six of Hire’s seven recorded pages all have a similar page title. Obviously, Google is not worried about making drawing in SERP bits to build natural navigate rates… or, they’re truly certain about the energy of their image acknowledgment and expert.

2. One meta depiction is “TODO include portrayal.” While it’s great to know Google hasn’t totally surrendered meta portrayals, page code won’t not be the best place for a schedule. Or, then again did the new assistant get in a reorder routine connecting to meta depictions and not take note? #happenstothebestofus

3. Another meta portrayal is 11 characters in length. It just says, “Most recent news.” Meta portrayals — when not schedules — ought to be… well, elucidating.

Maybe Google is trying different things with super short meta portrayals? How about we would like to think not.
4. The landing page meta portrayal, then again, is 358 characters in length. Google figured out how to make this one engaging, however it went a little over the edge. Meta depictions ought to be elucidating, yet compact — 160 characters or less.

And keeping in mind that I wouldn’t really put it past Google to make an exemption for its own site — they don’t. This one gets truncated in the SERP like each different enthusiastic meta depiction.
5. No site pages have canonicals. Standard labels that point to a similar page that the tag is on aren’t completely required, however they’re viewed as SEO best practice. Canonicals on each page guarantee any scratched or progressively copied content is credited back to the first source.

6. A portion of the code is unpleasant to take a gander at. Google — dependably the promoter for clean code — may need somebody do a code audit on Hire.

7. There’s no robots.txt document. From Google’s Webmaster Guidelines: “Utilize the robots.txt record on your web server to deal with your creeping spending plan by forestalling slithering of unbounded spaces, for example, query item pages.” Fail.

8. The 404 page is not tweaked and not supportive. Google’s prescribed procedures plainly express that 404 pages should enable clients to discover what they’re searching for and give approaches to keep guests on the site. Contract’s 404 page doesn’t utilize the site’s marking.

Why is Hire’s SEO so dreadful?
One of Google’s catchphrases is, “Make pages principally for clients, not web indexes.” Maybe this is the guideline the organization held to when building Hire? In any case, actually nonexclusive 404 pages and uninspiring page titles/meta portrayals don’t give the best client encounter.
It’s additionally conceivable that this variant of Hire is only a base suitable item discharge. Be that as it may, Hire’s declaration said Google has been trying the item for a year—which appears like a sufficient measure of time to check “TODO include depiction” off an errand list.
At last, a large portion of these issues seem to be quite recently apathetic. Present day SEO is hard, Google, however these things have simple fixes, yet it appears to be nobody sufficiently minded to take a hour to play out a couple of fundamental undertakings.
