I am pretty sure that most of you guys out here are already familiar with the type of services and products Backpage offered or had to offer once upon a time not very long ago. However, after its recent seizure by American authorities last year, the Backpage website has just vanished from the face of the Internet. Although, if you still go on to its official website, you should come across a message displayed saying that the site has been seized by the FBI. This of course means that either Backpage had something shady going on according to the US authority or simply, something just went wrong. Whatever may have been the case, the main question that we have today is what other websites can we try out giving the same services as that of Backpage. To find out which you will have to go through the list of the “Top 11 Backpage Alternatives” that have been listed out for you here, today.

Top 9 Backpage Alternatives 2019
This is one free ad posting website where all your categories are simply laid out for you in the homepage itself. Although, there is nothing much fancy about this site, still the way everything is distributed and made simple to access compensates for that. The main categories you will find over here include Vehicles, Services, For Rent, Real Estate, Pets, Personals, Jobs, Items for Sale and Community. Also, as mentioned earlier the one reason why I find Classified Ads to be easy to use and really efficient is because all subcategories of major categories are also listed on the Homepage itself as you can see from the picture below. Thus, naturally making it easier and much simpler to access the categories of your desire, simply from the homepage itself.
The Oodle website I would say looks simpler and more basic then what we saw earlier with ClassifiedAds. Still, this website is said to be one of the top aggregator websites for classified ads. They aggregate ads from other popular ad posting websites such as eBay and BootTrader along with other local websites and newspaper ads depending upon the country or region of your choice.
Oodle at presently covers up to seven major countries like UK, United States, Canada, Australia, India, Ireland & New Zealand. As for the categories they are distributed among six main categories such as Merchandise, Cars, Rentals, Real Estate, Jobs, Tickets, Services, Pets, Personals and Community.
Now this is a pretty dynamic website with some really fancy features and options so to speak. The very first thing that I found quite interesting about the site is the option on the search bar itself where you can put in your Zip code or location and also on top of that choose the radius of area within which you want to find your desired product to purchase. So, for buyers who are searching for some good things to pick up, Locanto surely won’t disappoint you.
Again, like our earlier contenders, this too is a completely free website where posting ads would not cost you a single penny. The categories which this website offers include For Sale, Jobs, Personals, Real Estate, Services, Vehicles along with some other new and really interesting ones like Classes and Events where you can find tutors and tickets to some popular events respectively. The website covers nearly half of the entire globe. So, if you find your region too listed over Locanto. Then don’t delay a second later and post up your ads for free and easy.
Although, pretty much similar in functioning as that off what we saw earlier for Locanto. The website overall is pretty white and basic. The categories are listed throughout the home page itself, making it easier for you to choose from categories and subcategories together itself. Also, as mentioned you can filter your search for products to buy simply by going to the search bar, selecting a category of your choice and filling in what is to be searched along with feeding in your Zip Code and the radius of area within which you want to find you product.
The categories that the site holds include Real Estate, Pets, Cars & Vehicles, Merchandise, Jobs, Garage Sales, Services and Food & Dining. As for the regions that the site covers. It is sadly mainly within USA itself.
Although, in Ukclassifieds you can find ads and even post ads from all across the globe. Still, just like the name itself suggests most of its ads that make up more than half of its ads are from the United Kingdom itself. Also, you should find a good deal in any part of the world you are from, if it is listed on world classified sections. So, my advice would be before you post or look out for any products or services, go to their world classified sections and look up for the number of posts listed for your particular country.
Apart from all that, looks wise the website holds a pretty simple and easy to use design interface. As for categories there are about 27 categories listed here which I would leave up to you to explore. And lastly, you also have the option subscribe to their Newsletter by simply going down and filling in your Email ID and hitting on the Subscribe button.
Well in case of City News, they have taken the ‘News’ part way to seriously when it comes to the interface and the way the site looks. And if you look carefully from the screenshot itself, you can very clearly see how is it close to just looking like any random old newspaper you find every day. Also, the other reason why it is called a CityNews is that it actually provides news and has a separate section for news called ‘independent news’. Apart, from that the other main categories you will find here are of course the ‘free classified ads post’. Then there are others like community interest, online games, customer service and translator.
Coming to the countries or regions that are covered by City News. They mainly comprise of The United States, Canada, Great Britain and continents like Europe and Asia. Then when we are talking about Ad Categories, those include Equipment and Tools, Entertainment and Events, Jobs, Personal Services, Music & Health just to name a few.
Last but not the least in our list we have ‘Geebo’. In case of user interface and design, the Geebo looks like the perfect ideal ad posting site for almost anyone. The design is basic yet eye catching along with a simple search feature and drop up menu from where you can specify your desired category to be searched.
Geebo at present only covers the whole of United States as a country. So, if you are not somewhere inside the USA, you probably will not be able to avail its services. Moreover, posting an ad is completely simple and self-explanatory. All you need is to register yourself and you are all good to go.
The website lists out the categories along with sub-categories on the homepage itself, giving you just enough information on what to find where and what to expect where. Some of the main categories include Merchandise, Vehicles, Employment, Rentals & Roommates, Farm Equipment, Construction Equipment and Services.
