Normal Full-Text Search

This mode is known as Full-Text Search. We just call it normal to help distinguish between the modes :). This mode simply takes the user input and performs a Full-Text search against each word in it. You must leave 'advance' checkbox unchecked to perform normal search.

Boolean Full-Text  Advance Search

You must check 'advance' checkbox to perform advance search.

Advance Search Operators

+

"

A phrase that is enclosed within double quote ('"') characters matches only rows that contain the phrase literally, as it was typed.

frequently asked questions

where is my posting?

Free postings don't post automatically, you must publish them first.

All Indian Classified postings (except for jobs) take approximately 15 minutes from the time you publish the posting until it appears on the site.

Posts take approximately 30 minutes to register in our search engine.

To see your posting, go to the category where you posted it, look under the date it was submitted and refresh/reload your browser.

If you've correctly followed our posting directions, waited 20-30 minutes, refresh your browser on the correct category index page, and your posting still is not there - then it may have been flagged and deleted by the bharatpatal community.

You can check on the status of your posting by following the link provided in your self-publishing email.

Please note that editing your post does not bring it up to the current date.

where is my self-publishing email?

If you have successfully submitted your posting and still have not received the email to publish your post, here are some things to consider:

  • If you are using a free email account (like Hotmail and Yahoo), make sure you have not exceeded your mailbox storage limit, and check your bulk/junk/spam mail folder(s).

  • Make sure you entered your email address correctly on the posting form - it only takes one typo!

  • Some email providers and ISPs have implemented "spam filters" which we have found are often badly designed or misconfigured - sometimes resulting in self-publishing & other bharatpatal emails being intercepted.

  • Network problems between ISPs can delay email transmission, sometimes for many hours - consider stretching out, getting some fresh air and checking back later.

why was my posting deleted?

  • Your posting may have expired. Free postings (except for resumes and events) remain up on the site for 10 days, unless specified. Resumes remain on the site for 30 days. Event Indian Classified stay up until the date range expires.

  • Heavily-flagged postings that are determined to fall outside our posting guidelines are subject to removal by BP staff.

  • Our flagging system has all the imperfections of a democratic system. If you're confident that your posting adheres to the letter and spirit of bharatpatal, please feel free to repost it!
