What we do
Adsdeck is a search engine for classified ads. There is now a growing number of websites which offer cars, properties and jobs. Adsdeck centralizes this type of ads making the search process easier. Our philosophy is to simplify the search for you by organizing all the information available on the web on a single site.
The main objective of Adsdeck is to make available to you car, properties and job ads from the main web sites of classified ads in a single search. We also offer some additional tools such as geographic location of real estate properties on a map, average market prices of existing properties (e.g. price per sqft in your neighborhood), statistics and features including saving your search and email alerts.
There are hundreds of classified ads sites, but now you only need to check one: Adsdeck
What we don't do
Unlike typical websites for classified ads, Adsdeck doesn't allow users to post ads directly but you can search through the existing ads in those sites. Adsdeck is a 100%% free service for users and websites that provide us with their ads.
Adsdeck was founded in late 2007 with the view of simplifying real estate search processes after one of our founders bought his house using an algorithm that automatically surfed the Internet looking for all the real estate items he was interested in. Focused on this idea, three partners decided to start working together to develop an internet-based system that would allow people to browse property, car and job ads as these three were the most relevant sectors for users.
We launched our first beta version in April, 2008, through which it was only possible to search for cars. Then, in mid-2008, we launched the properties section, that featured the geographical displaying of ads. And finally towards the end of 2008, we launched the jobs section.
In December 2008, Adsdeck was awarded in the Buenos Aires Emprende Program and was given a Non-Reimbursable prize for Investment by the Government of Buenos Aires City, with the sponsorship of the Center for Entrepreneurship of the IAE University. In August 2009, we successfully completed the first funding round led by angel investors Damian Voltes and Ariel Arrieta , who enabled us to continue improving our searching technology and broadening our regional expansion.
How we make money
Our business model is based on contextual advertising and featured ads that will be displayed when a user performs a search. Adsdeck will display them separately depending on whether they are organic results (free classified ads sites indexed by us) or sponsored results (which are paid by classified ads websites that have decided to highlight their ads).
Thanks for visiting us. We are eager to meet you again any time soon and do not forget to tell your friends about Adsdeck! :)
