Enhanced coverage includes new city sites and subareas for community trading
TORONTO, Aug. 29, 2012 /CNW/ - Kijiji, the country's number one online classifieds site, has added more comprehensive city sites and localized subareas in British Columbia for a more user-friendly experience. These changes allow Kijiji users in the Greater Vancouver Area and other regions of B.C. to "zoom in" to post and access listings in communities not previously represented.
The changes will add eight subareas for users searching within the Greater Vancouver Area, including subareas for Downtown Vancouver and UBC. In addition, 10 new regions and 19 new subareas will be added to other parts of B.C. where there was no previous online classifieds focus. The changes enhance existing Kijiji functionality; both new and current users will now be able to access more localized results.
"The additions we've made to the B.C. site is the second phase in a series of changes we are making in B.C. to give these communities what they've been asking for," said Vikram Kewalramani, senior product manager, Kijiji Canada. "Empowering people to buy and sell locally is in our brand DNA, so improving coverage and regional specificity is something we're always working on."
Below is a full listing of the changes to Kijiji's B.C. site:
