XML feed format

Here are some simple guidelines for preparing an XML feed in order to include your ads in Trovit. You can use our XSD Schema as an example of the feed structure. If you would like additional information about the XML format, check out 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 the following fields:

  • 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)

REQUIRED FIELDS

Required 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.

OPTIONAL FIELDS

You are not required to include optional fields. However, if you have the information, please use it! Trovit’s algorithm prioritizes higher-quality ads; therefore including more information will optimize your positioning.

  • mobile_url: URL of the ad on your site when a user is browsing on a mobile device. Useful when your website has a mobile version.
  • city: city name
  • city_area: city area or neighbourhood
  • region: state
  • postcode: postcode
  • salary: salary (format: can include comments or ranges)
  • salary_numeric: numeric value of the salary (without . and ,). For example: If tag element “salary” is 20,000-30,000, tag element “salary_numeric” could be 25000.

Please don’t include any symbols such as PKR, $ or €. The salary is set in PKR by default.
If the salary is specified in a currency other than PRK, a currency tag should be included. This tag enables Trovit to convert the salary to PKR.

<salary_numeric currency="USD"><![CDATA[...]]></salary_numeric>

In this example, the salary is specified in US dollars. Trovit will convert this to PKR
