We’ve gotten a sneak peak at a new press release coming out later today from classified search engine Oodle. They’re announcing a new Oodle Partner Network and have signed up Lycos and Backpage as charter members.
Oodle search results are being incorporated into Lycosâ€™ new classified marketplace, recently launched this week located at lycos.oodle.com.
â€œWeâ€™re excited about the launch of Lycos classifieds,â€? said Brian Kalinowski, chief operating officer of Lycos, Inc. â€œNot only can our users post classified listings for free but by partnering with Oodle, they quickly identify the most relevant listings, whether they were published on our site or elsewhere.â€?
Oodle results are also being added to backpage.com, a group of free community classified sites operated by local media outlets including newspapers, radio and television stations in 40 metro areas. This week results were introduced in Houston, Denver, LA, Cleveland, Tucson, Boston and San Antonio.
