When it comes to research on the internet, there is no doubt that the most popular search engine is Google. We all use Google on a daily basis, whether it's to look up someone, find the best restaurant in town, or find driving directions. But one problem with Google is that you have to narrow your search to find what you're specifically looking for - for example, you would need to enter the city and search criteria of the topic you're researching. Not only can this be frustrating, but it can be a waste of valuable time and energy. Thus, the birth of Craigslist. Craigslist is a new revolution that provides nearly everything you would want to know about a specific area. Created by Craig Newmark in 1995, Craigslist.com was originally developed to serve the San Francisco Bay area. By the year 2000 it had spread to four cities, and by 2006 it covered over 450 cities, domestic and foreign.
If you've never heard of Craigslist before, then you have yet to discover the world of information available at your fingertips. Once you try it out, you will probably never go back to any other search engine on the internet. It is very easy to get started on craigslist and can be used by anyone of any computer skill level. Not only is it an amazing search engine, but it's a very useful way of connecting to the people and services of your area as well as many other locations of the world. Craigslist offers valuable information on nearly every major city in the United States. If you're looking for information outside the country, Craigslist has you covered.
You can find the same great information on over 100 foreign countries and cities. You will discover a wide range of topics, including anything from vehicles for sale in your area to the latest real estate listings, as well as local job vacancies and discussion forums. Craigslist provides a place to meet for several different professions, such as politicians, healthcare workers, and stay at home moms. You can also find discussion groups for singles, religion, and even 1099 and other tax related issues. Chances are if you're looking for a discussion group on a topic you can't find anywhere else, you can find it on craigslist. Craigslist is a resourceful outlet for anyone relocating to a new area or just to find a specific item for sale or topic to discuss.
Craigslist is totally free to use and requires no registration. In fact, craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster issued a statement that the site has little interest in earning a profit, but that their main objective is to help the users find the information they are looking for. To explore the endless possibilities, simply visit www.craigslist.com and click on the city and state of interest. You can even post your own information at no charge.
