Responsive Design Adjustments

The mobile traffic to FreeAdsTime is increasing with a solid trend and we decided to look into this topic as a priority within our business. We had our developers and UX people to look into this trend and they have come up with a wonderful initial plan.

 We want this to be a smooth transition and this enables you to learn about the new menus and navigations over time. Basically, the aim is to make the UI/UX great for mobile users on different stages and different phases.

We’ve made the initial changes to the homepage and to above the footer. The new footer allows you to browse through more common pages by only one click rather than visiting multiple pages to find your destination page.

Certain changes also have been made to the homepage or even to the view business or classifieds page to make it easier for different devices to browse through the site. We’ll try to have more updates on here and you, of course, will see these changes as they go live.

New Apprach for Mega Cities

We provide an equal service for all cities, however, the larger cities tend to use most of our resources. We've decided to have a dedicated team for the high populated areas. This frees up the overhead from the current team and they can be more focused on other communities.

The new team, for now, will serve San Diego, Dallas, Jacksonville and Austin. We constantly monitor the other cities and if we believe more demand is being generated, we will take actions by adding more people to our team.

Once again, the quality of our services stays equal for all communities out there and we hope to even have more of smaller cities added to our list. Feel free to leave your city suggestions through the contact page and our team will do its best to ensure everyone in the world can use our services.

We're getting closer to about 60K live ads range and this again moves us to be a world-class classifieds/business listing site. We have this in mind for every day that we come to work and we ensure our quality of service is being improved day after day.

50,000+ Live Ads



Yes, this great milestone has been achieved. Having 50K+ live ads posted on FreeAdstime basically means a lot to us and it also means more accountability from our side to provide a world class service. The path of getting to this level has been anything but easy.

Technology has been evolving faster than ever before and keeping the website with precious features is what drives traffic to the site. We have this in mind when we implement changes and when the strategies are planned.

The business listing section is a good example of what has been added to the site recently. This opens up a whole new avenue for businesses to promote their companies. A wide variety of categories are covered under these listings and we almost have every large city in the world listed on the site.

Once again, my aim from this blog is to say thanks to all the users and to remind you that we do our best to keep your business. As for the new visitors, feel free to post your ads or businesses and share your thoughts after a week or two and let us know what the level of your success has been.

Happy 2016 and the New Year Plans

Two key points will be our focus this year. First and foremost, adding features, cities and categories will be worked on throughout the first half of this year. This ensures that we are covering and helping more people in more areas.

Our next aim would be to implement newest technologies to the site. The dev team aim is to ensure that the pages will load faster than any other competitors out there. We will add few modules and we’ll have the code adjusted to make this change.

Last not least, many challenges will rise through the year and we know with a right focus and a complete dedication any challenge can be resolved. This will be our ultimate goal for this year and we wish you all a happy new year.

Specific Questions and More Exposure

We've to impress two different group of audience to fulfill the classifieds demand out there. Impressing both buyers and sellers has its own challenges, yet our new upcoming changes potentially can benefit both groups.

We will be asking more questions when an ad is being posted. For instance, we perhaps will ask the color of your car or whether it has a navigation system or not. These questions would be optional to answer, but providing them can potentially result in more exposure for a posted ad.

New pages will be set up to showcase the results based on more specifications. For instance, buyers would have the option of finding a car based on its color as well. The good news for buyers is that your ad can be seen by better leads.

Last not least, we've made improvements to the speed of the site as well and this, of course, would improve the visitor experience both for buyers and sellers.

Meeting Visitors’ Expectations

We've noticed that the number of specific searches has gone up in FreeAdsTime.org. We decided to add more detailed pages to improve the user experience. An example would be the Great Dane for sale page. This page lists all Great Danes posts under one page and it makes it quite easier to compare the listings.

Feel free to visit the popular lists page to see all the new more specific categories.  We ,of course, would try to improve these new pages and we sure would come up with even better features as we learn more.

Moreover, we are now supporting more cities for regions with more traffic. This new approach can help locals to easily find products or services closer to their areas. We are at the experimenting step right now and we will expand this feature if we believe this new approach is meeting our expectations.

Mobile-Friendly Update and Classifieds

Google has added a mobile friendly factor to their search engine ranking. The update has been fully implemented and the ranking adjustments have been made. Some may not notice the changes yet as their pages perhaps have not been indexed by Google after the update.

We believe Google would take more steps to ensure that the visitors would have the best experience when visiting a site.

As for classified ads sites, we came across many sites in this niche that they've not made any changes. Some of these older sites are even using certain themes that been purchased as a package. We highly doubt they have the knowledge or the expertise on making such sites mobile.

FreeAdsTime has been mobile friendly for over a year and we do our best to improve its user behavior. We've noticed a great improvement in traffic resulted from this Google update.
