Frequently asked questions – Naukri Featured Listing ( NFL )


  1. The presentation says, 95-98% of the Searches are made only on Keyword and rest 2-5% Searches are made on Keyword and Location combination. Does this mean that Feature Listing will appear for only 2-5% of the cases?

Feature Listing works on Keyword and Location combination. This means that if a client has booked a job as feature listing using Keyword “sales” and Location “Delhi”, Feature listing would appear to users searching with (1) “Sales” as a keyword and “Delhi” as location; (2) “Sales” as a keyword search only and no location. PAN India is taken as default location.

The feature listing would not appear if the user makes a search using “Sales” keyword and “Pune” Location, because the client has not booked a feature listing using “Sales” and “Pune” combination.
