Oodle - A More Personal Classified Experience
|Oodle just announced the release a several new tools which aim to improve the way consumers use classified sites online.|
Users of the local classified sites will be introduced to a personalized interface that includes their recent searches when they visit their Oodle page. When away from the site, users will also receive detailed email updates of new listings that match their active searches. Oodle has some interesting features beyond this personalization that attempts to answer users most pressing "buying" questions such as "What's a great price?" and "How often do listings like this appear?"
Oodle indexes over 500,000 new listings every day from over 80,000 classified sites across the Web and powers classifieds for over 200 leading brands, including Cox Interactive, Media General, The Washington Post, San Diego Union Tribune and Lycos.
"Most people have a love-hate relationship with classifieds," said Craig Donato, CEO of Oodle. "They can find great deals but it's incredibly frustrating and time-consuming. Oodle not only gives users access to millions of local listings, it now provides the tools they need to quickly discover great deals."
