www.ClassifiedsNext.com has been started with one aim in mind. To provide quality free classifieds listing to a customer. The focus on the page is a users free listing rather than multiple ads being displayed from various sources.
Basically I am interested in finding how users find the interface, color schemes, navigation and how I can improve and promote the website to a larger audience.
Any number of simultaneous free listings can be done. The ad remains online till the user deletes it or is moderated by the admin or any other user who finds it offensive, inappropriate or spam. There are no success fees. All listings are totally free, no charges whatsoever.
Also there is nothing like "Featured Listing" or "Enhanced listing" at ClassifiedsNext.com - all listings are displayed as soon as they are added by the user. The ads are displayed on latest added basis. All ads have a direct link - basic SEO optimized link.
The member also gets his or her own profile page and a direct link to it. This page shows only listings posted by that member. Also another advantage is multiple RSS feeds that are available - right from member rss feeds to country/region/city wise or even category wise rss feeds.
One more advantage is that a member can create his own sub- categories within the main category. This allows flexibility to the user if he wants to post something specific within the category.
Another advantage is that a user can make the ad category as wanted, available, for sale, coupon, barter, garage sales & so on. Because of this the category is automatically easily identified as to which kind of listing it is.
The website also allows a user to place a link to their website. This is useful if the user wants to show his entire shopping cart or collection. Further, if it is a product listing, a user can select currency and price too.
Further there are advertising banners which advertisers can purchase and have their advertise displayed at predefined places.
ClassifiedsNext also generates a referral link which users can send across to their known contacts and get prizes announced each month for maximum referrals.
Finally, ClassifiedsNext.com does not display e-mail IDs anywhere on the site - unless of-course - the user puts it within description, address or some other field. This is a good feature because the user listing does not include emails - but when some one clicks email me then the messages are stored and visible to the Lister from a users control panel.
Finally to summarize - here is a snapshot of features offed at ClassifiedsNext.com
- Free Listing - any number of simultaneous listings and stay online till deleted by user or moderated.
