Some Newspapers Jumping On The Craigslist Bandwagon
from the moving-forward dept
While some newspaper folks still don't know about Craigslist that's certainly not true of all of them. The Tribune Company, fresh off buying a piece of Topix.net is expanding their free web classified service, Recycler. Even more interesting is that Recycler doesn't just search ads on its own site, but also aggregates deals from other sites -- including Craigslist. This seems like a smart move on the Tribune's part to combat losing classified traffic to sites like Craigslist by building something even more inclusive, that can also drive ad traffic and additional traffic back to Tribune news sites.
