By optimizing your resume for higher search rankings, you are effective "ahead" of your competitors. In the traditional online world, internet professionals refer to this process as "Search Engine Optimization". This is where millions of pages (owned by millions of companies) compete on search engines to rank on the first page of search engine results for a particular query.

Job search engines work similarly to traditional search engines (such as Google, Bing, or Yahoo) in that they use algorithmic software to find, crawl, and index pages (resumes) on the internet (job boards) to better understand general topics or subject areas for this page (CV). By optimizing your resume for targeted keywords, your resume has a better chance of ranking better against its competitors for that targeted search.
