Best Classified Ad Software or Script Recommendations

Discussion in 'General Marketing' started by msbaby, Mar 20, 2012.

  1. #1
    Can anyone please give me their best classified ad software or script recommendations?

    I searched for past posts and the requests seemed to be responded to by people
    selling various products rather than actual users.

    I am looking for a classified ad system that:

    a. is search engine friendly

    b. will allow editing and improvement of the ads

    c. has an RSS feed capability

    d. panels for advertising.

    e. all the usual features like pictures, ad expiration, email notification, etc.


    I realize that this kind of program will most probably need to be paid for since I assume free classified ad scripts will not fill my requirements.

    I have my eye on one but I don't want to post it here since I truly need assistance (and will also be looking for forum help soon) and am not trying to make a sale.

    Can anyone please help?

    Hi! I would recommend this one: http://www.snetworksclassifieds.com

    Now, their script is good, but... their customer support is not always great and it's totally outsourced. You buy the basic script and then you realize you have to buy add-ons too (such as membership section).

    Research everything about it before making a decision. Like I said it's a good script with an awesome admin panel, but it does require some additional work to make it perfect.

    The best classfied FREE one i think online is 'OSClass' , i would say dont waste your time on theses free ones like me, they dont have multiple level sub catergory. Alot of good and vital functions are missing, but hey that's why it's free. But i think 'OSClass' open source is the best one i've come across. Feel free to browse around this www.classifiedbangla.com this is the one i made with 'OSClass'. I was going to splash out money on promoting it but i think it lacks on many functions such as multiple catergory, no comapare list,the CSS i think is dificult, there is no grid view, it should be standard but they dont do it that way, and when i say its waste i say its a waste, hence you got the pros and cons.

    You can use Wordpress together with one of these plugins to create a classified site:

    1. Classipress http://www.appthemes.com/themes/classipress/

    2. Sitemile http://sitemile.com/products/wordpress-classified-ads-theme/

    Both have all requirements you mentioned.
    Besides that, Wordpress is easy to use, SEO friendly and very stable (used on millions of sites) and constantly under development.

    Here is an addition to the answer:
    Here is a good list of directories that will save everyone time:
    http://clonewebscript.com/0/posts/22-Classifieds/
    http://clonephp.com/index.php?view=ads&catid=22&subcatid=&cityid=1
    http://www.clonescripts.com/index.php?page=category&url=craigslist
    http://cloneload.com/0/posts/23-Craigslist/
    http://best-php-scripts.com/classifieds_scripts.htm

    *I would suggest PHP over ASP.

    I would suggest you to use Osclass. It is free to use and honestly a great script. Take measure against spamming.
