The Urgent feature allows you to mark your ad as urgent, letting other users know that you're motivated to find a buyer, housemates, or a new employee, whatever the case may be!
An Urgent feature does not move your ad to the top of the category page but it does make your ad stand out on the browse and search pages.
To show your ad at the top of a page, you can purchase a Bump Up or a Top ad.
