XML feed format

Here are some simple guidelines for preparing an XML feed in order to include your ads in Trovit. If you would like additional information about the XML format, check Wikipedia.

The feed should be written in UTF-8.

The UTF-8 XML file has one ‘trovit’ tag, and one or more ‘ad’ elements. Each ‘ad’ element has basic and optional fields:


Basic fields have to be included in the feed as they contain the minimum amount of information necessary for our system to include your ads in Trovit.

See technical specifications for further information about the data types and field restrictions.

  • id:id of the ad on your website (numeric or alphanumeric, however it must be unique because we use it to avoid duplicate entries)
  • url: URL of the ad on your website
  • title: title of the ad (a concise summary of the listing which does not contain your website’s name or URL).
  • content: job description (minimum of 30 characters). Please note that the quality of the description has a strong effect on the amount of visitors you will receive!


You don’t have to fill out the optional fields. However, if you do have the information, don’t hesitate to include it. Trovit’s algorithm prioritises higher-quality ads, so including more information optimises your positioning!
