If you are looking for classified ads site that is free, targets US population and offers a host of options, Hoobly can be the right choice. From events, books, collectibles, jobs, pets or vehicles to even clothing/accessories it has a wide range of options at your service.

Sell.com began as a buying and selling website in 1999 but has since then evolved into a broader classified ad site that offers a wide variety of categories including jobs and services. They offer a free 30-day trial for all their merchant plans but after that, there is a monthly fee for as little as $10, which is enough to let you post 300 listings.
Hoobly is also a lot like Craigslist but with more security features. For one, this website requires registration via email instead of waiting until right before publishing an ad to ask for email verification. This helps to prevent accounts being linked to temporary addresses, which then reduces the risk of spam or potential fraud. It is free to post an ad, and Hoobly offers a wide variety of categories that are available for browsing even before registering for an account.
The whole purpose of placing ads on the classified sites is to draw traffic to your business as these sites are visited by a large number of people on a daily basis. Advertising on these sites increases the visibility to your website or blogs as well, hence this method is being used by several webmasters to boost SEO (search engine optimization). You can place backlinks on high PR sites to improve your website’s rank in the search engine results pages.
