Classifieds Software Overview
Similar to the theory that the life originated in the ocean, the origin of our classifieds software started with the ocean too, or to be precise with boats and yachts, which navigate the ocean, and for which the new software was intended. The original name of the Company and of the product was reefLESS, hoping that the way for our software will be free of reefs and other obstacles. Even though we didn't hit the reefs, we had to overcome difficulties of an online start-up. When writing the code, we sometimes doubted whether we’ll be able to take our niche in the market or not, which was already shared by a few classified companies by that time.
It took us a year to write a code of our first script. All doubts dispelled, the first version of our classifieds software released, full of positive expectations. We still remember our first customer. It was a moment of truth that all our efforts weren’t a waste of time but the real attempt to succeed in the classifieds software market. Flynax took its first breath with version 3.2 when the Company was also rebranded into Flynax. Having covered a long way, Flynax was taken to new heights and performance setting a new benchmark in the classifieds area.
Today we offer six classifieds scripts:
If you plan to launch a classifieds site or a directory with categories for classified ads, cars, property, jobs and services then our all-in-one classifieds software is the best choice because it is SEO friendly, reliable and extremely flexible.
Whether you are a private seller or a car dealer you can start your own used car site or a directory for selling or renting cars with our Auto Classifieds script that comes with all makes and models, nice themes and a number of powerful plugins.
Designed for selling and renting homes, the Real Estate software is a professional solution for advertising different types of property, showing listings on the Maps, generating individual pages for estate agencies on subdomains and many others.
Unlimited by available boat and yacht categories the Boat Classifieds software allows you to launch your own site for selling or renting boats and yachts and populate it with ads using our sophisticated XML Import/Export plugin in openmarine format.
Made mainly for selling pets, the Pet Classifieds software can also be used for selling various animals and insects or for starting an animal shelter giving users the ability to add a description with multimedia and share their pets in social networks.
Using our Escort Agency script with built-in membership module you can easily open your own escort site both for private escorts and agencies. You also can adjust your escort site to work as a model agency or another site offering similar services.
Features and flexibility are tightly interconnected: the more features classifieds software has the more flexible it is. Flynax offers an impressive list of admin and user features that give you freedom and enough flexibility to start a custom project targeting a particular product or a large marketplace with multiple listing types and categories from back end without getting into the code.
Our feature-packed CMS allows you to rearrange structure of the entire site, add custom sections with their own categories, plans and fields, add custom pages, manage listing and registration forms and do many other things. With every update or upgrade we add more features to make Flynax software even more flexible and functionally powerful.
If the software basic functionality doesn’t offer you the things you want, you may check our plugins, some of which offer really massive functionality and can significantly boost your site.
SMO & SEO Friendly
Today search optimization is taken as a complex process involving two major elements: search engine optimization and social media optimization. Flynax offers you both SEO and SMO tools to make sure that your site will take a decent position in the SERP. Apart from standard search engine optimization functions like building SEO friendly URLs, Flynax also gives you the ability to generate meta data with field values, which in URLs might be connected with syntax. Even if you choose to change the order of fields, you have nothing to worry about as the system will find the latest listing of the two and mark it as the main one allowing you to avoid duplicate content in search engines.
For indexing links you can use our Sitemap plugin that generates XML sitemap files for Google and Yahoo. To prevent duplicate content in case of sorting or filtering, the software offers canonical meta tags.
The software has a clear division between contents of different language versions, which allows you to increase content of your site and traffic to it accordingly. Such plugins as SSL certificate, Navigation and Tag сloud will also contribute to better SERPs.
As part of SMO we offer you facebook connect, Bookmark and Share and Social meta tags plugins to make sure that your users can sign up with their Facebook accounts and share their listings in social networks.
Along with the impressive feature list Flynax also offers an impressive list of powerful plugins numbering as many as 80 plugins. We offer both free and premium plugins. Plugins are a good way to add extra functionality to your site. After choosing an appropriate plugin from the back end of your site you'll be able to install it with one click.
Among the most popular plugins are CSV/XLS Listing Export/Import, Multi-field/Geo filtering, Shopping Cart & Bidding, Booking, Listing Box, Field-bound boxes, Listing Box, Filters, a number of payment gateways and many others. Plugins are a good way to add extra functionality to a site.
