I'm getting too many search results. What's wrong?

When you enter more than one word into the search, both words will be looked up. To match an exact phrase, you can use quotation marks, for example "Ford Ranger" would only find classifieds with that exact phrase. To disclude keywords, you can udse a minus sign. For example ford -ranger would show all results for ford without the word ranger in it.

How do Wanted/Freebies/Trade & Barter work?

When you choose either of the options of "Wanted", "Offering Free Item/Service", or "Trade/Barter" when placing your classified, your classified will be placed in the category you have chosen AND in either of the wanted categories, the freebies category, or the trades & barter category respectively. This is done automatically for your convenience, doubling the chances your classified will be seen.
