Well, I tried http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=perl+job+london
and the hits are for the top levels of the job sites, not individual jobs.
So, say I were looking for a job* this seems to leave me needing to search
the job sites using their own (crappy) search, or manually using Google to
search within each site in turn. Whereas what I would want is once useful
search. Sort of like a "Google jobs" (as someone else had suggested. If
such a thing were to exist)
* please note, I'm not looking for a job. You can tell when I am because a
sig appears with my CV. Now, if you want to find my CV, Google gets you to
it rather easily. Then again, maybe I should include it more often, as it's
not the highest "Perl" "CV" yet.
