What is Craigslist?

Craigslist is an immensely popular classifieds site, with local sites in most major cities around the world. Craigslist was founded in 1995 by Craig Newmark. eBay became a 25% shareholder in 2004. 

Selling on Craigslist  is simple and most classified listings are free and the site also contains active community forums. Craigslist is praised by online retailers for being less commercially orientated as other online marketplaces. In fact, Craigslist allows users to link from their Craiglist classified to their own website, and therefore, Craigslist provides a fantastic opportunity to push traffic to your own eCommerce website
