Free Classified Ads: Some of the Finer Points!
(Page 1 of 4 )
Free classified ads are very much the same online vs. offline. The biggest difference is the amount of space you have to place your ad in.In an offline publication, you are normally using abbreviations and have room for an ad with 16 to 24 words. In online advertising, classified directories normally tend to give the advertiser a great deal more space, often as much as a couple of short paragraphs, and that is on the free services. In a paid classified service, the space allocated can be as much as a full page or more.
Years ago, classified advertising online was a very popular means of driving free website traffic to your website, but it seemed to die out in the late nineties. Or at least the fad of free classified ads seemed to fade away. However, if you do a keyword search on Google for "Free Classified Ads" you will get results of 1,110,000 websites using the term Free Classified Ads. And if you do a broad search without the "---" the results are a staggering 14,600,000. I am guessing that the only thing that faded away in the late nineties was my interest in using free classified ads.
