Oodle Grabs New York Post Deal
The online classifieds at Rupert Murdoch’s Big Apple tabloid are getting a makeover, in an impressive little win for Oodle.
"New York Post users will now be able to search New York’s largest collection of online classified listings in tickets, pets, merchandise and services as well as post their own ads for free," Oodle said in its announcement. Oodle’s services are live on the Post’s site today.
The jobs section will remain with the Post’s current job classifieds provider, Adicio. Neither Oodle nor Yahoo’s HotJobs and its consortium of newspapers have managed to win over Murdoch’s Post for those lucrative listings.
Oodle recently revamped its site, and launched "Oodle 2.0" in November 2007. The site touted the addition of 500,000 new listings each day, and over 30 million listings aggregated from 80,000 sites.
