Local Classified Ads - for FREE !

Postby lancashire-lad » Sat Jul 11, 2009 1:18 pm

Hi,

Bit of a new venture for me, so its early days yet !

Just launched http://localclassifiedads.co.uk a free to list ad site for goods, services etc etc, as it is multi location, each location has its localised areas, so there is bound to be an area close to you, if not I can add more areas.

One of the neat things I like about the software is that it is integrated into Google maps, and as I own the code outright I can mess about with it, so am also working on an 'eBay feed' - where registered ebay sellers will automatically get al or selected items listed for them, set and forget type thing, though that process is in its VERY early days.

Meanwhile, why not list some 'stuff' to swell the numbers (please) - remember its FREE unless you want a Top Ad placement, and at the moment no point in doing that as there are hardly any ads listed as yet LOL

Here is the website : http://localclassifiedads.co.uk/

Eddie

Bit of a problem with your new site.

I clicked on the items to buy/sell, and then display all ads, and nothing :(

also, where do I go to change my password please?

Yep, its being 'worked on'

Its a multi location website, default location is London - when in fact default should be NO location, thus showing ALL listings from each location in the relevant category, select one, and it should take you to the listing and on the 'site' for that location, select a NEW location, you should see ALL listings for that location etc.

Presently you have to select any location and see if there are any listings for that location - which is not good.

Eddie,

I don't know if you noticed that I have a Pimlico Classifieds, http://www.pimlico-flats.co.uk/classifieds/ - it was actually the 1st application that I set up on the Website. Thinking about that gave me an idea for you:

How about affiliating (loose use of the term) the parts of your classifieds with different geographical areas? So (say) websites of firms in Liverpool could carry your Liverpool Classifieds on their site (hosted with you). They would be able to show an extra service on their website at no cost or effort, you would get links and marketing.

Great idea Nick, but all in good time,

First I have to sort out the way ads are presented (search) so for exampe a user can easily find ALL items for say Liverpool, as it would be that section another website would require the API for.

Next priority will be getting items listed, and am looking at ways for ebay sellers to auto list store inventory items, sort of set and forget proceedure - the classified ads website is automatically populated with data from ebay store items, once listed they can manage those ads from within the site, delete, extend, renew or pay for a top ad slot etc.

Lot of work to do on it yet, its a long term plan.

Great news !

Yep, initially it wasn't indexed by Google so had to resubmit it, plus the generated site map xml was too long, so those issues have been fixed, still a lot of work to do on it yet though.

You will not get any information or good things if you do not visit the site seriously
