Posting duplicate Ads

Below is a highlight as well as guidelines of what is not acceptable on UmojaAA community platform. Avoid duplicating Ads

There are no limits on how many Ads community users can post on UmojaAA, however business, or people considered to be posting at a commercial capacity may be asked to post an Ad in the Services for Hire section instead.

We also ask that you don’t post duplicate Ads on the site:

  • All Ads posted must be unique. Unique means that the Ads are substantially different from each other. Please do not post the same Ad over and over again across categories. Only post the Ad where you are physically located.
  • You should only post your Ad on the UmojaAA site that’s nearest to you or the product or service you’re offering. If you post in multiple locations, your Ads will be removed.

People that are willing to travel will set their search parameters to a wider area to find your Ad.

These restrictions are in place to prevent users from “spamming” the site with duplicate content.

Posting cars & vehicles Policy

Below is a highlight as well as guidelines of what is a requirement on UmojaAA community platform. There are Laws, regulations and Terms & conditions that are here to protect everyone: sellers and buyers equally.

What are the Cars / vehicles / motorbikes / parts policies?

The vehicles categories are for both private and commercial sellers and buyers.

Write the most descriptive and informative ad as possible, always provide accurate information such as kilometres. Users will appreciate a well-made ad and you may find you gain a greater response. Remember, you can use as much space as you like and you can even include up to 10 photos.

Ensure your advertisement isn’t breaching any applicable government laws/legislations. It is the responsibility of the advertiser before posting an ad on UmojaAA that content advertised adheres to UmojaAA Posting Policies as well as applicable laws. As a condition of your use of UmojaAA specified under our Terms of Use, you agree that you will not violate any laws.

Please don’t use keyword spamming or keyword stuffing techniques

Keyword spamming is the practice of listing lots of often irrelevant phrases or words in an ad (for example postcodes, locations or makes and types of cars not relevant to the current ad) purely in an attempt to have a better search ranking.
We don’t allow this practice on UmojaAA because it is very frustrating to our users to find irrelevant ads in their search results, it can make ads hard to read and it creates an unlevel playing field. It actually disadvantages you as an advertiser.
If you’re found to be doing this we may suspend your access to UmojaAA.

Using the Automotive category as an example:
1. Keyword stuffing does not give any advantage to listings and in fact disadvantages them. If someone searches for a ‘turbo diesel’ and a hybrid car comes up, there is very little chance that the potential buyer is going to change their mind on what they searched for and buy a hybrid instead of the turbo diesel theyv’e searched for. These irrelevant comments waste space which could be used to explain what sets this car apart from the hundreds of similar ones which are listed UmojaAA
2. Time is better spent ensuring vehicle prices are on par with market prices and checking that great photos are posted

What are the Community Guidelines?

UmojaAA is a community site and we rely on your reports and feedback because it helps to shape the site and keep it friendly, safe, up to date and relevant for everyone. We like to think of it as you, the UmojaAA community, policing the site and keeping out the bad guys.

While the most UmojaAA users have great success buying, selling, renting or connecting with others, sometimes we do receive reports of people trying to scam or defraud users.

One of the best ways to address this problem is to ensure that all of your transactions take place locally and in person and that you inspect the item before paying for it.

If you find an Ad on UmojaAA that you think is illegal, or a scam or fraud you can report to us by clicking on the ‘Report’ button shown on every UmojaAA Ad. Reporting a suspicious Ad brings it to our attention so that we can review and, if necessary, take it down quickly.

If you reply to an Ad and you get a suspicious request from the poster of the Ad (e.g. requests for money to be via a payment service), please forward the email to us and stop all contact with that person.

If you experience harassment or abuse in connection with either an Ad on UmojaAA or an email received from a UmojaAA user then please report it to us.
