A REVAMP of the ST701 online classifieds portal now enables users to search for items like cars and property more easily than before.

Among its new features, the portal's popular search engine is now in an easy-to-locate spot.

The search engine has also been redesigned to be more comprehensive. Users can define their search criteria in more detail, giving more accurate results.

For example, someone who wants to buy a Volvo can specify if he is looking for a new or used car. He can also set the price range.

ST701 (www.st701.com), was launched by Singapore Press Holdings in March 2006 initially as a job portal. It has since expanded its scope.

Said Ms Elsie Chua, senior vice-president of CATS Classified, Marketing, at SPH: 'Since the inclusion of cars, properties and shops in October last year, ST701 has received a lot of value-added input from users.

'We have hitched on to their feedback in our rollout of new features to the site.'

One of these is My Favourite Ads. Users can bookmark items they are interested in and refer to this watch list at their convenience.

Other new features will let users compare multiple items at a glance and also send their finds to friends via e-mail.

And from today, users can also play a 'Spot & Win' game and stand to win Sony Vaio laptops.
