Canadians and the Spirit of Holidays

We as Canadians would love to buy stuff in general whether it is off classifieds or local shops. However, we double our shopping enthusiasm when it comes down to December. We all pretty much go all in and we make sure all our shops are packed.
It was all great up to here, when every where gets this busy, then there would be side effects. We just wanted to give you a heads up and ask you to take an extra care when purchasing items from online classifieds sites. The advice we have always given is that to deal locally and see the other side.
The good part is that you get to see more ads being posted and more items are being available. We assume the sellers are very aware of this purchasing spirit and they do their best to provide good service around this time.
Let's help one another to get through this season with most fun possible. We wish you all a great holiday season ahead.

More and More of Love and Work

Yes, I'm excited to say that our love for  Maple Classifieds is at its highest right now. It is not easy to define the highest level though, as it may even get higher than highest level! Nevertheless, it is getting harder and harder to keep this site clean, but we are doing our best and we don't quite. The team over here won't stop till every spammer is taken care of. That's right, we do work day and night ensuring that the site is as clean as possible.
We see posted content related to home improvement work, flower shops, social media experts, restaurants and other such local businesses posts. This help us to put the work on here as our priority. It will be great to hear from you as if we are doing an OK job in this field.
I'm going to keep it short this time, but this doesn't mean you should keep it short too. Write to us and let us know what you people have in mind. It always take more than a person or a team to bring the ultimate and this is why we ask for your help.

Domain Change and More Features

We had a slight change to the domain name and so many of you may even have missed it. It now is easier to reach to this domain, if you're used to clicking Ctrl and enter when putting a dot com URL. We had some requests from different people for this and it is done now. As you can see, we would love to hear from our visitors and we will make changes based on their request.
We still wanted to get more exposure in Canada within search engines. We went to our Google's webmaster tools and added Canada as our targeted country. If you do not know what Google Webmaster Tools is, we highly recommend you to learn about it. You may not have an online business just yet, but this can even gives you ideas.
For example, you can tell Google what pages you want them to have it in their index and what pages you want them to have removed from it. One can add a sitemap too and show them all the important URLs and you can tell them how often such URLs do get changed. Any how, it is a lot of fun playing with their menu.
We still look forward to hear more feedback from all Canadians and we hope we can bring what's expected from us for everyone. We sure can do this with our visitors help and with our team dedications.

July 1st and July News


We all had a good long weekend, eh! Canada day and the fireworks were great. We had a message up on the MapleClassifieds.ca saying Happy Canada Day J. It seems it didn’t get as much attention; we will place it somewhere more obvious for the next year. Nevertheless, we had a great time and we hope all of you had a wonderful time too.

If you’ve noticed, we do our best to show being Canadian side of this site. Time to time we see ads meant for other countries being posted on here. We do our best to monitor the posted classified ads and have such ads removed from the site. As we have mentioned before, the classifieds is meant for local people and people from elsewhere cannot possibly have local ads for over here.

Nonetheless, if you came across ads being removed by mistake, go ahead and let us know. We will do our best to use our manual team review and correct our mistakes. At the end of the day, we want to make sure there is a great community have been put together over here by real people.

The Site Monitoring System

The Maple Classifieds is still a newer site, but we have seen a rapid increase in its traffic. We almost have doubled our traffic from the month before. As traffic gets increased, so does spams and other unwanted posts.
We have implmented newer and more sophistacated anti spam systems through the site. What we don't like about the internet world is that spammers progress is quite good as well. They always find new ways to tackle the other systems. Nevertheless, we always do our best to have the best methods in as a filter.
We can't really give too much detail over here as this detail might be get abused by some of the spammers out there. We still want you to report any ads that you may think they are inappropiate. The reports would also send us a good signal on what can be good and what can be bad.
Other than this, the site is bug free as far as we can tell. The site is being tested on different browsers on regular basis and they all seem to be showing fine.
This was it for now, Go Canada Go!

2013 Updates on This Canadian Classifieds

Our team does its best to keep this classifieds as Canadian as possible. We may actually start posting hockey scores here eh!
Let us know how we can make this site more Canadian than what it is right now. We would love to hear from you all and we we may actually implement your suggestions through the site. I mean we already have the Maple in the domain and we have its images all over our site and Logo. But, I think there is always more room to improve.
One suggestion we had was to add more cities from across the country. We now have almost all the major cities covered. Let us know if we are missing any of them. We of course have all the provinces and territories. We may actually ad the particular sections to the site.
As for the categories, we did our best to cover each and every service and product out there. We still want to keep the site PG13. So, please also let us know, if we are missing some of the important categories.
We hope we can gain some more exposure in year 2013 and we would keep the free ad posting option for as long as we can.
