Whenever you create an advert or edit an advert you will, after submitting your advert, be directed to the boost page where you can choose to select a boost if you wish.
Boosts apply for different periods of time (3, 7 or 15 days).
- Small (S) - Your advert will be boosted for 3 days.
- Medium (M) - Your advert will be boosted for 7 days.
- Large (L) - Your advert will be boosted for 15 days.
There are currently three different functions of boosting:
Bump: Your advert will be bumped, which means it will automatically be bumped to the top of the search results every 24 hours for as long as it is boosted. How quickly your advert falls further back in the pages of search results depends on several factors such as your location, the popularity of breed you are advertising, and other filters.
Highlight: Your advert will be highlighted, which means it will have two extra photos while also having the boost badge. This will make your advert more visible in the search results and it will also be located in the top section of the search results.
Boost Section: Your advert will be featured in a separate boost section (with other boosted adverts) located at the top of the search results. It will also have a boost-star. Please note that as time passes since your last bump, your boosted listing at the top of the page may appear further back in the pages of listings depending on your search filters.
How to Boost
For a new advert, you can boost during checkout.
For an existing advert, there are two ways of boosting the advert:
- Go to the advert on the website and click "Boost this advert." You will then be redirected to the boost page where you can select a boost for your advert.
- By going to ''My Adverts'' in your account, click ''Boost'' on the advert you wish to boost.
How are Boost Prices Determined?
Is my advert boosted?
You can see that your advert is boosted in one of two ways:
- In the "My adverts" section on your profile, you will see your boosted advert has a Boost badge as well as a Boost Star.
- On the advert details page, you will see the same Boost badge under the bottom-left corner of the image gallery.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the time your boosted advert is bumped to the top of listings each day. Boosts are applied automatically once your advert is published, and we can not guarantee the exact time your listing will be bumped to the top of listings daily - but we can say it will be approximately every 24 hours.
If you want to be absolutely certain that your new listing will be boosted around a specific time, we advise waiting until after your listing is published to apply the boost. When you purchase a boost before your listing is published, you risk delays to your desired bump time while your advert is in the queue of pending listings.
How can I change my boost time?
To change your boost time, you will need to wait for you current boost to expire, and then purchase a new one near the time you would like the boost to take effect.
I can not find my boosted advert in search results
To learn how to search for listings, please see this page.
How quickly your advert falls further back into later pages of the search results depends on several factors such as your location, distance, the popularity of your breed, and other filters applied by interested users.
If you can not find your boosted advert after adjusting your search filters and searching past the first page of results, please reach out to our support team so we can assist you.
