AloofDoof Sends Alerts When Ads You Like Appear On Craigslist

Reader Sedo just sent us a link to, a website that lets you set up keyword searches on Craiglist. We haven’t tested it, but it appears to be similar to WishRadar for Amazon. Sedo writes,

It emails related postings that you are looking for on an hourly basis. It can even text the postings (although I don’t use texting). I’ve managed excellent deals getting video games that I wanted. I also have job postings (for me keyword “tutor”) constantly emailed to me as I’m looking for a part-time job as well.

Note, however, that the “privacy policy” page is blank as of August 18th 2009, so be aware of that if you decide to register.
