Need something on Craigslist and you don’t care which city it’s from? Up until now, such a search would be a painstaking manual job. Enter Search All Craig’s Lists, a new tool that does the dirty work for you, scouring all the cities and countries with local Craigslists and compiling them into one index.
Search for Craigslist uses Google custom search, which is fast but not as precise as using Craigslist’s own search tool. For example, you can narrow down your search by city but not by neighborhood as you could on Craigslist itself.
A multiple city search is handy when you’re looking for something somebody is willing to ship like a stamp or coin collection. It can also be useful in case you’re trying to track down stolen items.
Search All Craig’s Lists doesn’t do anything you can’t do on Google; it just makes it easier. The site is not-for-profit, has no ads and doesn’t collect any user data.
Another site that searches across Craigslist cities is CrazedList but it requires users to “disable referrers in your browser” to prevent Craigslist from knowing that you have come from this site and as a result may block your results. Search All Craig’s Lists doesn’t require such a cumbersome work around.
