SeekYourItem.com, an offshoot of Classified Ads Free, just announced its free search engine for classifieds. While calling it all-inclusive, it only seems to aggregate from pure-play classified sites such as Craigslist, Kijiji, Oodle, WebCosmo, Backpage and so forth. Consumers can choose to search within the United States, Canada, Australia or Asia. They can search globally, or within all ads from Craigslist. What they will be able to do eventually is search in each specific country.
It’s an efficient product at least somewhat monetized by Google ads. While we weren’t able to reach anyone at SeekYourItem as yet, we did test out its functionality with a search for a 2005 Hyundai Elantra in Arizona. We found 297 cars.
