Summary of 2009 development:

- Move an ad to the top: you can "move your ad to the top" daily using your verification link or the ad management link in your user account. * Available in paid categories only.
- We added 200 or more cities: you can post ads in all or any combination of cities with one posting form. It's a paid option and incredibly convenient. * Click here to post ads in multiple cities.
- Development is already underway to add another 100 cities in February.
- Our affiliate program has successfully gone through beta testing and is now public: get paid 10% commission on any upgrades purchased by new users you refer to us. Some affiliates make $1000's per month on promoting and posting on backpage. * Sign up here and then post links on your websites, blogs, or social networking pages to start making money.
- Markets merged to create a "state" sites: in some markets, users can browse content by city or state. Example: illinois.backpage.com. * We still have more work to do in other states.
