When placing a classified, higher is generally better. If you know how the system works its pretty easy to keep your ad at the top of the category. Note: we do not guarantee placement. To access the best places on the site, please consider our display advertising.
Ads Sort by Expiration
The classifieds sort by expiration. If you run your ad for more than a month it will float at the top of the category. Here’s how it works. Most ads are one month. When you place a 2 month ad, yours appears above any ad with lesser time. An ad with 31 days left will appear above an ad with 30 days left. Eventually any ad will begin to sink in the category unless renewed.
This does not prevent someone else from placing an ad for 2 months five minutes after you do. Their ad would appear above yours. Also, because there are categories throughout the page, top the category, does not mean top of the page.
In addition to higher placement, multiple month ads get a discount. You can save up to 20% by running your ad longer that the other guy.
Featured Ads Get Homepage Placement
You can feature your ad on the homepage. Every time someone opens the homepage, featured classifieds are displayed. Push your ad in front of more eyeballs by selecting this premium feature when placing your ad. The effect only lasts a week, which for many items can be enough.
Featured Ads Get Priority in Search Results
Featured ads also get priority when someone uses our search page. If your featured ad appears in the results, your ad will appear at the top. Your ad will continue to get this benefit throughout its run.
