Best Classifieds Ads Scripts 2011
Friends, Ive searched long enough for a good classifieds ads script like most of you guys and have tried almost all free ones and also purchased a few as well. Now done with all that i am writing this post so that you also wouldn’t have to go through the same pain and would save time and a LOT of effort.
Firstly, before starting to search for a script, lets understand our requirements, and ask ourselves a few questions.
- Am i gonna spend money on the script? (Free or Paid)
- Whats my expectations out of the website
- How complex or simple the website needs to be
- What are my level of expertise in configuring and maintaining a website
Trust me, your website depends on the first question mostly!!
If you are planning to go for a Free one, Think again – you are being limited a lot to what you get !! and if you have long term plans with the website, i would strongly suggest to go for a paid script so that you would get the support and quality as well.
Still if you are convinced to go for a free one, below are the best free Classifieds ads script on the web as per my experience.
Also you could use the wordpress theme with the wp-classifieds plugin as well ( its a good idea)
Now if you want to spend a few extra bucks to get a great website and run it on a long term, here are your options.
Rank 1: ClassiPress WordPress Application + Theme – 99 USD for download

Rank 3: 68 Classifieds – 120 USD for script download
