Craigslist is an online classified and advertisement provider that provide a lot of advertisement in the shape of job advertisement, house for sale, house for rent, services required, services wanted, gigs, item for sale and much more.The system of Craigslist is much similar to that of the real hard copy of a newspaper that contains a specific classified section where it provides the different type of advertisement and make the readers able to get all advertisement about any topic on a central platform.There is a discussion form in the Craigslist as well.In addition to all these, Craigslist allows the users to post their ads for free as well.Community members started asking for a web interface.Newmark registered "craigslist.org", and the website went live in 1996.People trying to get technical positions filled found that the list was a good way to reach people with the skills they were looking for. User demand for more categories caused the list of categories to grow.
I've started this very simple site to help you out.
It became a web-based service in 1996 and expanded into other classified categories. Having observed people helping one another in friendly, social, and trusting communal ways on the Internet via the WELL, Mind Vox and Usenet, and feeling isolated as a relative newcomer to San Francisco, Craigslist founder Craig Newmark decided to create something similar for local events.
In early 1995, he began an email distribution list to friends.
Below you will find a list of classified sites that I am aware of (other than craigslist, as I believe it needs no introduction). In no particular order, here you go: A relative newcomer to online classifieds, patrickspost is an excellent alternative to craigslist. As it is a fairly new site, there are far fewer overall postings, and yours will most likely have fewer competing postings.
Backpage is very similar to craigslist and has grown rapidly over the past several years. Backpage is mainly free when posting in one local area.
