This is an important point and if I'd had some points I'd have modded you up.

I'd also mention that your CV will be read by lots of people e.g. recruitment agents whose knowledge of what the tech buzzwords mean is very similar to the automated filters. These people are gatekeepers between you and the potential employers HR department, which might well have been outsourced itself and have a similar level of knowledge. Getting a job isn't as simple as it used to be, it seems to be much harder to get your CV onto the right person's desk.

I've had mostly poor experiences with the big recruitment sites. Networking and contacts combined with targetted direct applications seem to be the way to go. Well, it worked for me anyway.
