Other sites like Craigslist were spawned after the phenomenal success of the online classified ad that produce job leads, houses and possessions for sale. Craigslist is the top leading website online generating millions of hits a day; now Craigslist has its own competitors doing successfully on their own which can be used as a great alternative to the original website.
- Backpage- Backpage is one of many other sites like Craigslist similar in layout and categories. The one problem with Backpage is the numerous spam in its job section that should be monitored closely the same way as Craigslist does. Overall, if you are looking for a neat, organized site, Backpage is the best to navigate to due its familiarity to the user like Craigslist.
- Oodle- This is a very neat site similar to Craigslist with an excellent layout. However, unlike Craigslist, you are able to post via different sites — namely Facebook, Myspace or Twitter without logging into Oodle daily. Searching for jobs is a bit different as Oodle displays job leads compiled from different sources across the internet.
- eBay Classified- Not only does eBay dominate online auctioning, it has now made its way to join Craigslist, categorizing sections of its ads with housing sale, selling items, posting services and jobs. Formerly known as Kijiji, what separates eBay classified from Craigslist is that eBay users have the option to summarize their work history in the “Resume” section if they are looking for employment. You are able to subscribe to email alerts and be one of the first bidders to know when an item is for sale.
