AOL Partners With Oodle For Classifieds Site
The site was developed in partnership with Oodle, which operates a network of classifieds services in the U.S. AOL Classifieds is expected to serve as a platform for sellers to promote their listings by leveraging the reach of Oodle's network of more than 250 partner sites.
Buyers can expect to find deals with access to more than 40 million listings aggregated from more than 80,000 different sites. In addition, AOL Classifieds links consumers directly to classifieds listings on other properties within the AOL network, including AOL Autos, AOL Jobs, AOL Personals, and AOL Real Estate.
"With the current economic climate, providing consumers with an easy way to buy and sell merchandise and services, or make local connections through classifieds is becoming even more important," said Chris Spanos, general manager of AOL Local and Specialty Verticals.
AOL Classifieds is the latest addition to the AOL Local Network, which is an online local network with a monthly reach of 54 million unduplicated unique visitors.
In addition to the launch of AOL Classifieds in the U.S., a site for Canada is also available beginning today. An AOL Classifieds site for the UK will be launching later this week.
