I co-run a job board, and part of our service is to post jobs that people post with us on multiple boards. The content originates with us, and we are basically the god version, any updates made on our site by our clients gets pushed out to the other job boards.
The problem is, when you search in Google for the specific job by its title, we are nowhere to be found. Instead the other job boards that we publish the job to come up as search results.
I have added a tag for
<link rel="publisher" href="https://plus.google.com/117671874862128537527"/>
to try and tell Google that we are the owner of the content, which looks to appear correctly using their snippet tool, but we still are nowhere when it comes to searching Google for our content.
A running example:
QUALIFIED HAIRDRESSER FOR SALON - HAIRHOUSE WAREHOUSE CHURCH ST, BRIGHTON
The content on our site: here
Google search for the job title: here
It's extremely frustrating since we are driving traffic to other sites for our own content.
