Classified ads on Locanto are now hyper local: Through recent changes on the Locanto Classifieds websites (www.locanto.com), ads on the site are not only available in the city in which they were posted, but also in every region, state, and even country-wide.
Locanto Classifieds is now available in every neighborhood, city region, and state in a total of 40 countries worldwide. Up until now, users had to select the nearest major city in order to post their classified ad. The new options on Locanto allow posting an ad in every location, regardless of its size. Each region also has its own classifieds site, enabling local trading within every community and even neighborhood.
Many categories in classifieds markets require local advertising. A bulky piece of furniture for example is more likely to be sold nearby because it saves time and money. Searching for a new job however is more beneficial on a larger scale, if not even country-wide. All this is now possible on Locanto (www.locanto.com.au), because every ad on the site will appear in searches within the local neighborhood as well as within the entire city, state, and country page.
“The advantage is that ads are no longer limited to a major city. In the 40 countries in which we operate, every village, however small, now has its own classifieds site on Locanto. This makes searching for local offers such as babysitting, activity partners, or a used refrigerator easier and more convenient.”, says Klaus Gapp, CEO and founder of Yalwa (www.yalwa.com), the company behind Locanto.
In addition, newly introduced search options on the category pages allow users to narrow or broaden the distance of their search according to their own needs and requirements.
This hyperlocal development is a response to the Locanto users’ requests for more regionalism and a closer community on the Locanto Classifieds sites.
