Posting an ad 

1. How do I post an ad?

Posting ads to Anyads.lk is quick, easy and free. Just click the “Post free ad” button in the top-right corner of the page and then follow the subsequent instructions.

An ad should include a convincing title and a detailed description. You can upload up to 5 images to your ad. If you don't have a Anyads.lk account yet, be sure to confirm your email address so that your ad can be brought online.
 
 

2. Can I use HTML tags or URLs in my ads?

Anyads.lk allows HTML (limited) and linkable URLs in ads on the site. However, if your ad only consists of links it will not be accepted. Furthermore, you are not allowed to link to other classifieds sites, even if it is only to bring attention to another ad.
 
 

3. What can I do to increase the amount of clicks and inquiries my ad receives?

If you want your ad to receive more inquiries faster, we offer a solution called Premium Features. With Premium Features, your ad stands out among the rest, appearing either at the top of users' search results or in a special gallery to the right of them. This makes your ad more attractive and appealing and draws more attention to it. For more information, visit our Info page. Ads with images are generally more successful than ads without images. The more detailed you describe your ad, the more likely it will be found by other users. Tell your friends about Anyads.lk! Share your ad on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. The more people visiting Anyads.lk, the more views and inquiries your ad will receive.
