For quite sometime we have been working on a newer version of ClassifiedAds.PK which was finally released recently. The new version comes with lots of improvements that we felt as lacking in the original design. Simplified page layout, sleek design, faster page loading, and improved accessibility to common tasks have been our focus in this new design. This post covers these improvements and provides an overview of them.
The New Home Page
You will feel the difference the moment you see the new home page. The new home page loads much faster and has been simplified. The page content has been organized to make the commonly needed tools more accessible.
The New Home page
Ad listings now show a brief summary of an advertisement. On the Ads page, you can also increase the text by clicking Read More or lessen it to the default by clicking Read Less.
In addition to the summary text, the footer section of every ad item contains a link to open it in a new window. This helps you avoid switching between pages and lets you remain on the current listing while viewing the ad at the same time in a separate browser window.
Improved Search and Introducing Advance Search
The search is another feature that was of primary focus in this version. We have greatly enhanced the Web site’s searching capability so that every search that you make provides you with the most relevant and accurate results. To make search more accessible, the Search bar has been added to the header section of every page.
The Search bar
Also introduced in this release is Advance Search. Advance Search allows you to more accurately configure your search criteria and limit your results to those ads that closely match it.
The Advance Search page
With Ad Navigator, you can now easily move between ads without having to go back to the ads list view. Do you want to view the next ad in the same category or sub-category that the current ad is in? Do you want to view ads in a series without having to go to the ads list page again and again? This is exactly what the Ad Navigator has been designed for. You can now easily move to the ads that are next and previous to the ad that you are currently viewing. And not only can you move to the next and previous ads in the series, but also those that are in the category or sub-category of the ad that you view.

Keeping in view the ad posting trends on ClassifiedAds.PK we thought of sharing with you the successful method for promoting your ads and making it to the top ten popular ads list. The top ten list offers you an opportunity to have your ad on the front page of the Web site and the chance that more visitors are seeing it.
To make it to the top ten, you need more and more people to view your ad. The more the views, the higher the score your ad makes and greater are its chances of making it to the top ten. Most advertisers post ads regularly on ClassifiedAds.PK after a certain number of days. Though this is the recommended approach if you have something different to offer every time you are posting an ad, it is certainly not the good one if you are repeating an ad you posted earlier and it is still live on the site. Reposting an ad divides your viewership and chances are that the score for the previous post will go waste as most viewers will be seeing the newer post.
So what do you do to promote your ad and increase its viewership, you may question. The answer is to use your social networks. Share your ads on social networking and bookmarking Web sites, like Facebook and Digg. If you have an account on any social networking or bookmarking Web site, ClassifiedAds.PK lets you easily share your ad with your connections using the Share button on your ad page.
Also take advantage of the Send to a friend feature on your ad page to e-mail the link for your ad to your connections. Remember, the more the views, the more the chances of your ad making it to the top ten list.
It wasn’t easy selecting the top 5 for August as a lot of search queries overlapped. We have generalized them to give you an idea of what the visitors are looking for.
- Web development and SEO courses
- Immigration services
- Higher education consultants for Scandinavian countries
- Used cars for sale
- IELTS classes
Here we are again with the top five searches on ClassifiedAds.PK. In July, Samsung Omnia 18910 topped the searches. By looking at the other keywords with Omnia 18910, we analyze that most of these searches were for price, features and comparison with similar models from other vendors. And, as the summer gets more and more hot, the locals are taking off to the northern parts of the country to enjoy the natural beauty and spend some time in the cool temperatures. Search for tourism services and packages held the second position. The complete list of top 5 is as follows:
- Samsung 18910 Omnia
- Tourism services
- SEO training classes
- Packers and movers in Pakistan
- Canadian immigration services
Searches for electronic items dominated in last month while searches for tuition in the twin cities – Islamabad and Rawalpindi – were again high and are also in the list this month. Following are the top five searches for May 2009:
- Accounting tuitions in Islamabad
- Canon cameras 40d
