Craigslist is the easiest way for millions of users around the world to search, share and publish classifieds types of jobs, housing ads, sell goods and services, and other types of items.
To summerise, Craigslist works as a local list of everything for on sale or in demand around your area. Whether you’re trying to purchase used motorbike or you’re looking for a job online, you can browse through every result in your city via Craiglist.
The site is ideal for searching for listings in your region based on how far geographically each property or listing is from your site.
