One of our web server’s disks went bad earlier today and deleted some of the files, causing search results page to not show up properly. Website has been restored from backup and seems to be working fine now.
We’re checking the user data and the databases to make sure everything else is OK… Looking good so far..
Thanks to Mr. Wade Preston for letting us know about the issue.
Claz.org is now filtering duplicate listings, hiding results which were posted by the same person on multiple websites.
You can still enable duplicate listings by clicking “Show All” link:
Claz.org - Filter for Duplicate listings
Thanks to Satbeachbill for reporting the issue
Claz is moving to the new data platform – for faster searches and to support our growing database…
If the plan goes right, the move will be completed on Friday night and shall not impact Claz users.
If you occasionally reach this page trying to run your favorite Claz search – please drop me a message at email@example.com and I’ll look into it

During the past several days I’ve received numerous complaints from the users regarding the decreasing quality of classified ads :
- some ads are tripping their antivirus alerts
- other ads are showing “forbidden” error page when opened
- others ads are redirecting to “signup” forms, auctions, or some other content that does not match the title /description of the ad
It took awhile to come up with a mechanism to filter these “trash ads” from search results.
I’ve set up the first portion of filtering mechanism tonight. As the result, almost 2 million out of about 10mln search results have been removed. I will keep working on filtering and will put a couple more improvements in place within the next several days.
Meanwhile, please help cleaning up “trash posts” by reporting them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Moved Writing Jobs content to separate section.
Now working on adding more RSS feeds / reorganizing existing feeds to populate this section.
