The Featured Ad service allows your ad to appear in the Featured Ad sections providing your ad with up to 20 times the visibility of a regular ad!*
Your ad gets better placement by appearing in the Featured Listings sections described below. The images below show samples of the two types of Featured Ads available.
Top of the Listings and Search Results Featured Ads
Home Page Featured Ads
How does it work?
For Homepage Featured Ads, the Featured Ads that are shown are randomly selected amongst all the Homepage Featured Ads on the Website. For Top of the Listings and Search Results Featured Ads, the Featured Ads are shown in the applicable subcategory and rotate randomly amongst all the Featured Ads for that subcategory and location. In all instances, the selection of the Featured Ad is randomly generated to allow all Featured Ads purchasers to have the same chance to appear on the Website. This is why it’s possible that your ad will not always show up in the applicable Featured Ads section.
How much will the visits to my ad increase?
The goal of Featured Ads is to increase the potential visibility of your ad. On average, 8 times more people may see your ad compared to regular ads.* On the categories with the most ads you may get as many as 20 times the visibility.*
How do I buy a Featured Ad?
How much does it cost?

How long will my ad appear in the Featured Ads section?
Featured ads are sold per week (7 days). You can feature your ads for up to 4 weeks.
I don't see my ad in the Featured Ads area
If you bought a Featured Ad and don’t see it in the designated area, please:
- Verify you received an email confirmation saying your featured ad is online. It may take up to 24 hours for Featured Ads to be reviewed.
- Verify the start and end dates for your Featured Ad in the email confirmation.
- Remember that your ad is in “rotation” with others in the same category and location so it’s not always shown. As a rule of thumb, in any given day there won’t be more than 18 ads in “rotation” in a category in a given city so your ad will be shown approximately once every three times the page is loaded for Featured Ads at the top of the Listings and Search Results.*
Why can't I modify my ad?
To provide a better experience to the visitor (who may have bookmarked your ad), we don’t allow Featured Ads to be modified until the Featured Ad option expires.
If you want to make changes to your Featured Ads, you have two options:
- Wait until the Featured Ad option ends, change your ad and buy the Featured Ad option again, or
