Search Multiple City Craigslists At Once

Crazedlist.org lets you search across multiple Craigslist city pages at the same time.

Just type in your query, select the category, and check off the cities you want. You can even select large geographical swathes, like Northeast or West Coast.

The results page brings up windows for each city result with their own scrollable windows. If you don’t like what you see in one city, you can easily X them out without refreshing the page.

The site even lets you create RSS feeds for specific searches

  1. There was another website similar to this that got a take-down notice from Craigslist for violating some terms of use.

    I use crazedlist.org quite a bit and I’m gonna be pissed if it gets taken down because consumerist drew so much attention to it.

    Love it! I recently also ran across http://sfbay.listpic.com/ which parses out the pictures into a nice interface…

    I created an ApplScript to do this for CA Craigslists, but this site looks much more comprehensive. I was also trying to figure out a way to do the same thing using Yahoo’s new Pipes site http://pipes.yahoo.com/. Seems to me there must be a way to have it parse all of those RSS feeds that craigslist generates. But I can’t figure out how to do it. Still, no need now with crazedlist.org around.

    CLSearch V2.0 and other Craigslist Add-On tools from CraigslistCompanion.Com is the new era in the multi city search for craigslist.

    It is a free download from [www.craigslistcompanion.com]

    Thanks

    This works great, but is to slow and the output is virtually unusable. With Google Custom Search, it’s no longer necessary to use these fancy interfaces. I set up a custom search that gives results for Craigslist nationally, and I set up a seperate page to handle individual states. It took me 15 minutes to get these set up. Very easy.
