Claz.org is finally out of Beta !

Hooray, Claz.org is  finally out of beta after 10 months of development and testing.

 While in our beta, we’ve implemented and tested numberous updates to our engine, focusing primarily on ease-of-use and making search more effective:

  • We’ve added more than 200 classifieds websites, forums and message boards to our search database, which now stores over 16 million classified ads
  • Better ad previews – with bigger thumbnails and brief ad description
  • Search filters – search by keyword, category, price and location, nationwide or within up to 250 miles radius
  • Saved Searches and Email alerts – users are notified when new ads matching their criteria are posted
  • Scam/Spam filtering – we’ve integrated with automated malware / spam filtering engines and added community moderation – to keep our users safe.
  • Filters for duplicates – duplicate content posted in multiple cities or on mulptiple different sources is now filtered

In addition to optimized search/browse functionality, we’ve added our own ad posting service with a number of features that we believe will help our users’ listings to get more visitors:

  • Automatic listing quality indicator (quality listings will attract more visitors)
  • Auto-suggest categories – for better targetting
  • Auto-suggest images for listings without photos (independent research shown that visitors are 90% more likely to click on listings with photos)
  • Users’ email addresses are hiddent from spam bots, replies to users’ listings are filtered using our spam / scam filter
  • Filter replies to user’s listings using our spam / scam filter
  • Syndicate your listings to multiple websites (still in closed beta, coming soon)

Our work pipeline is still full of fresh ideas. A lineup of new features is expected over the course of a couple of months – all to save our users time and eliminate the need to search across multiple classifieds sites.
