Are your candidates increasingly valuing flexible and location-independent work? Then we have the perfect addition to our sales system index advertising data for you – the filter for remote positions!

Specifically, with the new feature, you can display all job postings with the keyword “remote” (or similar) in the title. Quickly and conveniently, with just one click.

These are typically companies that either have no office space of their own or allow their employees to work remotely up to 100 percent of the time. These positions are particularly interesting for expats and digital nomads.

Ad text search in Search only in tasks/qualifications

Thanks to the use of artificial intelligence, we are now able to divide the ad text into its individual components. From now on, you can do a full-text search directly within the job duties or qualifications mentioned in the job advertisement. Enter the relevant keywords in the ad text search and check the box „Search only in tasks/qualifications“.

Please note that this feature is currently available only in the German and French job markets.

If your telephone system is connected to your PC, it is now possible by clicking on the telephone number to initiate a call directly from Advertsdata. Just click on the red telephone number.

Semantic search in the French and Belgian job markets

Thanks to the new semantic search function, job posting searches in the French and Belgian job markets have been made even better and more comprehensive.

If you have activated the semantic search (please note the respective language), you will not only see job postings that contain the search term you have entered, but also similar job ads. This will provide you with more relevant results and make your acquisition even more efficient.


Your search term is „developer“.

    • If the semantic search is deactivated, only results that contain exactly this search term or a word component contained in the search term are displayed.
    • If the semantic search is activated, you will also be shown results that are similar or relevant to the search entry in terms of content, such as web designer.
    • The semantic search is disabled by default (“semantic off“). It can be activated for the desired language using the drop-down menu. Please note when selecting the language that, for example, no French words are recognised in the “semantic English” search.
      The semantic search only relates to the job title search and is currently not available for other functions (e.g. full-text search and for the info agents).

Exporting contacts from the ads

In addition to the contacts at the companies, you can now also export the data of the contacts provided in the ads. In addition, when exporting company contacts, you can now also specify that only contacts who were last found within a certain period of time, e.g. in the last 6 months, are to be exported.

Showing your comments on ads in the results list

If you’ve saved comments in Advertsdata, these will now be displayed in the results list focusing on the job postings. You can select whether you want to use this function in the settings.

Faster searching in ad texts

The full-text search has also been revised. In order to be able to display the search results much faster we have optimized the technology behind this search feature. This means that the system for entering search terms has changed somewhat. We have directly integrated comprehensive explanatory notes on this into the “job posting” filter.

Removing individual adverts from one marked selection

We’ve added the possibility to process tagged adverts and remove them individually. You can now also filter your tagged adverts based on when they were posted. The adverts are sorted according to the posting date and is displayed in descending order.

In order to do so, the relevant entries must be selected using the checkboxes. The desired action can be selected from a drop-down list at the bottom of the list.

New function in my advertsdata to select and delete multiple entries

Redesigned feature – “Ad increase”

To identify companies that have placed a disproportionately high number of adverts in previous months, you can use the new option “Ad increase” integrated in the company search under the section “More filters”.

New filter option ad increase

The filter “Ad increase” analyses companies’ job posting behaviour. It is based on the number of grouped jobs. In order to exclude seasonal fluctuation, two requirements must be fulfilled:

  1. 1st Requirement: We compare the companies job posting behaviour in the last 30 days with that of the 30-day average for the previous 90 days. If the increase is disproportionately high, the first requirement would be fulfilled.
  2. 2nd Requirement: The job posting behaviour in the last 30 days is also compared with that of the previous year. A 30-day average will also be established here, however, it will be come from the surrounding 90 days of the previous year.

When using this filter, only the companies that fulfil both requirements will appear in the results.

The following table outlines the assessment guideline to identify if a company’s job posting behaviour is disproportionate. Based on the 30-day average of the timeframe from requirement 1 and/or requirement 2:

Number of jobs grouped (30-day average)

From To Increase by factor
1* <5 3
5 <50 2
50 <100 1,5
100 <500 1,3
500 1,1

**To exclude companies that only have one or two job postings in the current month, a minimum value of “1” is used for the 30 days average.

An example:

Date of search: 16/05/2018

The following data was retrieved

Timeframe Company 1* Company 2*
15/04/2018 – 15/05/2018 (last 30 days) 14 7
Requirement 1: 14/01/2018 – 14/04/2018 (90 days before) / 30-day average 20 / 6,67 8 / 2,67
Requirement 2: 31/03/2017 – 29/06/2017 / 30-day average 21 / 7 6 / 2

*Number of jobs grouped

1st Requirement:

Calculation for company 1: Disproportionate increase –> 6.67 x factor 2 = 13.34 –> Company 1 must have posted at least 14 jobs in the last 30 days for the advertisements increase to be active. –> Requirement fulfilled

Calculation for company 2: Disproportionate increase –> 2.67 x factor 3 = 8.01 –> Company 2 must have posted at least 9 jobs in the last 30 days for the advertisements increase to be active. –> Requirement not fulfilled

Requirement 2:

Calculation for company 1: Disproportionate increase –> 7 x factor 2 = 14 –> Company 1 must have posted at least 14 jobs in the last 30 days for the advertisements increase to be active. –> Requirement fulfilled

Calculation for company 2: Disproportionate increase –> 2 x factor 3 = 6 –> Company 2 must have posted at least 6 jobs in the last 30 days for the advertisements increase to be active. –> Requirement fulfilled


Both requirements are fulfilled at company 1, only the second requirement is fulfilled at company 2. Therefore, “Ad increase” will only be displayed for company 1 in the relevant filter.

Filtering by ad sales

From now on, you will have the option of filtering job postings according to their listing price or companies according to their advertisement budgets (spent on publishing job ads within your selected time period). This option can be found in the ‘More filter results’ filter category.

Search advertisements

‘Search job postings’ allows you to focus on ads within the price range you’ve set. You can set the minimum and maximum price here. If you do not enter a value, there will be no restriction.

Please note: Please note: This feature applies to each individual job posting. This means that the setting “show positions grouped” takes all of the job postings with identical jobs within the set price range into consideration. The total sum of all displayed job postings can therefore be above the price range you’ve set. When you sort your results according to ad prices, it will always be sorted according to the total sum of the job postings.

New Filter Options by listing price

Search companies

In the ‘search companies’ part, the ad price is based on company advertisement budgets (spent on publishing job ads within your selected time period. Companies are only shown if their ad sales are in the set sales range.

Collapsing and expanding subcategories using filters

To navigate easier within the filters, all subcategories are shown expanded by default. The respective subcategory is shown again by clicking on the ‘+’ icon for the supercategory. All subcategories are shown in one click via tab navigation.

Filter function to collapse and expande industrie subcategories

Under the ‘My Advertsdata’ settings, you can set whether the subcategories are shown collapsed or, as before, expanded by default.

Please note: For collapsed subcategories, the selection of supercategories automatically leads to all corresponding subcategories being selected, as before.

The collapsed and expanded subcategories were introduced for professional groups, industry and sources filters.

MINT job categories

You now have the option of easily selecting all job categories that include MINT jobs by clicking ‘MINT professional groups’.

This includes:

  • Research and development, high-tech, scientific professions
  • IT/Telecommunications (inc. sub-groups ‘IT’ and ‘Telecommunications’)
  • Technical professions (inc. sub-groups ‘Architects’, ‘Engineers’ and ‘Other technical professions’)

The ‘MINT professions’ quick selection is only available if you have all of the above-mentionned job categories. Please contact us if you would like to select all MINT-relevant professions in the future.

Defining the standard file format

To make it easier for you to export data, a predefined export format, which includes the most relevant fields for your work, is available for all users. The file format is called ‘standard export’. You can find this export under ‘My Advertsdata’ → ‘File formats’ and you can of course customize these even further based on your personal requirements.

Defining standard file format with relevant fields

Marking of e-mail addresses that had delivery error messages

Using the error message from bounced e-mails, index can partially determine whether the corresponding e-mail address is still contactable. In Advertsdata, e-mail addresses with delivery errors are marked with a broken chain link icon. These e-mail addresses will also no longer be shown in exports.
