[list-alert] Craigslist notification service

Postby zed » Wed Jan 30, 2013 9:36 am

Just started using this service [list-alert.com]. Looks like a very useful idea.

We created this service because we use Craigslist to look for some oddball items that aren't always available (lately Ted has been looking for a lot of baby-related stuff). We got tired of having to constantly check Craigslist to see if anyone had posted one of the things we were looking for. We thought it would be nice if someone sent you an email when the item you are looking for is posted.

Here's a brief tutorial:




Here's a search example. I'm looking for tires and wheels in the 245 and 235 size range. I entering into the search criteria box:

wheels | wheel | 245 | 235

Which tells it to look for the keywords "wheels" or "wheel" or "245" or "235". Pretty cool.

If you use an RSS Reader of any kind, you can also subscribe to any Craigslist Search as an RSS-feed, therefore showing many different searches and their results all in one place.
