Refresh jobs button and new scrape requests can now be offered via API for WebSpiderMount clients’ customers and admins directly within their own systems, i.e. job boards and online recruitment systems. New API feature is now available for all WebSpiderMount job wrapping service clients.
Methods available directly from client proprietary systems via WebSpiderMount API:
1. Refresh jobs
Client manager or client customer can initiate jobs refresh (restart scraping process immediately and update jobs) directly from a client system. Refresh jobs button or a widget can be added to a client system.
2. New scrape request
Client manager or client customer can submit new scrape URL and comments for setup.
3. List of scrapes
Client manager can view scrapes within client system: retrieve a list of live scrapes.
Such widget can show scraping status for a single scrape to show job sync status e.g. in an employer’s dashboard. Or a list of all client’s scrapes for a bigger picture and scrapes management.
Both widgets can be easily styled to match look and feel of client back-end or secure area of client customer interface.
Integrate via API calls
Examples of API functions usage: offering client customers new scrape details form during registration, the latest job wrapping sync status on jobs manager, refresh button.

We noticed you mentioned scraping Indeed.com
Just to confirm: Indeed.com prohibits spidering of its content and they will block anyone trying to scrape it.
Normally, our clients ask us to spider jobs from direct employer websites and ATSes.
In some cases we can spider commercial job boards: if there is a formal agreement between our client and the job board to allow spidering.
