Moving to new data platform

Claz is moving to the new data platform – for faster searches and to support our growing database…

If the plan goes right, the move will be completed on Friday night and shall not impact Claz users.

If you occasionally reach this page trying to run your favorite Claz search – please drop me a message at support@claz.org and I’ll look into it

Cleaning up trash posts

During the past several days I’ve received numerous complaints from the users regarding the decreasing quality of classified ads :

  • some ads are tripping their antivirus alerts
  • other ads are showing “forbidden” error page when opened
  • others ads are redirecting to “signup” forms, auctions, or some other content that does not match the title /description of the ad

It took awhile to come up with a mechanism to filter these “trash ads” from search results.

I’ve set up the first portion of filtering mechanism tonight. As the result, almost 2 million out of about 10mln search results have been removed.  I will keep working on filtering and will put a couple more improvements in place within the next several days.

Meanwhile, please help cleaning up “trash posts” by reporting them to claz.org@gmail.com
