April and May have been busy months for us. We’ve just finished rolling out our latest updates and we hope you’ll like them.
New look. We’ve changed the main theme to be concise and uniform across all pages. We rolled it out as an experiment for a small fraction of users in mid-March, analyzed site usage data and rolled out a global update for all users later in April. The new theme uses colors consistently across pages and makes it easier for users to access most used features of the site – search, “my listings” and user account pages.
Scrollable tabs. We’ve made category tabs scrollable to allow us adding new categories and subcategories of listings in the future.
Better Analytics. Users can now see detailed daily, monthly and historical stats for their ads – to help understand which of their listings work and attract more attention.
User-friendly listing status messages. We’ve added detailed explanation of the listing’s current status – whether it’s visible to other users and what is the status of the community review.
Please let us know what you think about these changes. We will continue to work and find new ways to make our service better for you.
We’ve rolled out a new version of our Top Classified Sites page, which is automatically generated using stats and popularity ratings for free classified ads sites our service knows about.

We’ve spent most of February working on small incremental changes to make our service better and improve user experience.
Email Delivery: we’re now paying much more attention to the way our system forwards email responses and alerts to our users – to decrease the likelyhood of user messages being marked as SPAM. We’ve also revamped our Monthly Analytics Report to make it more informative and expressive and useful.
User Interface: We ran a series of A/B experiments to find out which elements of user interface are more usable and did a number of small tweaks. For example, we placed the Post Ad button at the top of the screen for mobile users to make creating new listings easier.
Also we’ve started showing extra links on the listing details page to help users find similar listings.
Social Networks: We’ve temporarily suspended featuring user listings on Facebook – to work out a way to reduce the chance of accidentally featuring SPAM/SCAM ads.
Bugs: We’ve fixed a problem with some users being unable to sign in because of special characters in their email address.
Can’t find what you’re looking for ? Don’t despair, post a Wanted Ad ! We’ve just made it a bit it easier.
Earlier this week we’ve improved the look of the listing details page. Users can now see more similar listings in the area by scrolling to the bottom of the page. How do you feel about this new feature? We’d be glad to hear from you.
We’ve added listing status alerts . Users now can now be notified when their listing is published, featured, flagged or is about to expire:
These and all other alerts can be turned off on the “My Account” page.
Do you have any other suggestions how we can improve our service ? Let us know !
Some of our users have not been receiving confirmation emails sent to their AT&T, Bellsouth and prodigy.net email addresses.
We’re happy to announce that this problem is now resolved.
