gumtree
« on: October 13, 2017, 07:58:33 PM »

   Lately when I get onto gumtree there seems to be a problem getting to see the item I am looking for.  I asked to see steel beam and amongst the beams there were caravans, air conditioners and household items etc.  Is there someway where people pay money so their ad appears on screen no matter whether it has been asked for or not.  This seems to the only answer I can think of.

Everyday I find one more name to add to the list of people who piss me off.

No secret, its called key words. some where within that page is the words you looked for. They can even be typed in clear so you cant see them but they are there.. Being owned by ebay there is also the option when listing to have Premium positioning. Waste of money I think as Im not looking at that even if it is pretty.

Would you be interested in swapping it for a fish tank and a snake?

I have a wide array of hammers and other percussive instruments, I'm sure I can make it fit.

If you don’t sell all the blocks, I’d be interested in buying one, after I sell my Ute.

Yeah, having evilbay in the background certainly isn't ideal and my son gets heaps of that crap like will you swap a bag of chicken shit for your HR etc. It really pisses him off !

With the key word thing, and I am far from a 'puter expert, try joining the words with the plus (+) sign eg maico+MC490T

How much was he askin' for the blocks?
VAPOUR (AKA HYDRA / HYDRO / AQUA / WET) BLASTING AND GENERAL ENGINEERING 0416074750 (or) vapourblasting@yahoo.com.au

DUCATI Parts wanted esp 450 R/T and other early models inc V-twins
