When you’re looking at a single source, like a small company or niche website, you may not realize that it only has a few hundred listings. Unfortunately, this isn’t obvious until you search for another source and see that the results are quite different.
We created AutoTempest to solve this problem by automatically filtering out smaller sources and showing them all on one page. This makes it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for without being distracted by other, less useful listings.
How AutoTempest Works
AutoTempest displays result from multiple sources all at once, which means it has to figure out which to show. The first step is to filter out smaller sources. This protects you from irrelevant results and wasted time. Smaller sites may not have the same amount of relevant listings, and they may not have the same level of quality in their content.
Once it has filtered out the smaller sources, AutoTempest can then show all of the sources at once. It orders them based on how relevant they are, putting the best sources at the top. Another important factor is how many listings each source has. If a source has a lot of listings, it makes sense to show it even if it’s not the most relevant source. You’re more likely to find what you’re looking for with a large source than with a small one.
Filtering Out Small Sources
AutoTempest filters out the sources that aren’t relevant to your search. For example, if you search for “IT jobs near Boston,” it will filter out sources like Indeed and LinkedIn that have only a few IT jobs in Boston. It then shows all of the remaining sources on a single page so you don’t have to switch back and forth between sources. It also hides the filters on the source pages so you can’t accidentally filter out a good source.
AutoTempest filters out small sources based on the number of listings they have. It requires a minimum of 100 listings per source to be shown on the main page, and it filters out sources with fewer listings. For example, if you search for “IT jobs near Boston,” it will filter out sources like Indeed and LinkedIn that only have a few IT jobs in Boston.
Sorting and Filtering Together
AutoTempest also sorts and filters at the same time. You can sort the source results by Relevance or by the number of listings. The source with the most listings will be at the top, and the source with the fewest number of listings will be at the bottom.
You can also filter the source results by a specific job type or by location. For example, you can filter for only “administrative” jobs in Boston. Then you can sort the results by relevance to put the best sources first.
Filtering By Job Type
You can filter the source results by job type by clicking the “job type” filter on any page. This brings up a list of all the major job types like “administrative,” “clerical,” “IT,” and so on. You can then select the job type you’re looking for.
Each source has a different selection of job types, so there’s no guarantee that “administrative” is in the top results for every source. In fact, it’s not in the top results for many sources. However, “administrative” is in the top results for almost every source. You can select it as your job type and be sure that you’ll be shown the best sources first.
Filtering By Location
You can filter the source results by location by clicking the “location” filter on any page. This brings up a list of all the major cities like “Boston,” “New York,” “Chicago,” etc.
You can then select the cities you’re looking for. Some cities have hundreds of sources, and some only have dozens. As with job types, some sources have all the major cities while others don’t have any. For example, there are over 100 Boston sources, but there is only a single New York source.
The Bottom Line
AutoTempest automatically filters out smaller sources and shows them all on one page. This makes it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for without being distracted by other, less useful listings. When searching for jobs, make sure to use multiple sources to make sure you don’t miss any good opportunities. You can use AutoTempest to filter out the smaller sources to make sure you’re only seeing the best jobs.
