Classified Ads Portal Lines Up Top Ten Markets

AdStar.com's Advertise123.com, a classified advertising portal, has lined up newspapers and Web sites to cover the top ten markets in the US, which account for 40 percent of the nation's population.

The Advertise123.com portal allows advertisers to buy both online and newspaper classified ads through a Web interface, and lets them target regionally as well as locally. The top markets represented include New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, Washington, D.C., Dallas, Detroit, Atlanta and Denver.

AdStar.com launched Advertise123.com in February of 1999, and has since been working to sign up publications. It now gives advertisers access to print publications such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The San Jose Mercury News, as well as online publications like CareerPath.com.

"We have created a valuable one-stop portal to help advertisers simplify their jobs and extend their sales potential beyond their local areas to people in the top markets in the U.S.," says Leslie Bernhard, chief executive office for AdStar.com.
