The ebay's Classified Ads, Craigslist's Top Competitor Traffic

Craigslist have huge market in U.S, but not necessarily in other countries. These are some traffic and customers you might seek for if your service can help the foreign market. These craigslist competitors are a lot more popular than craigslist in some highly concentrated cities such as London, Ontario Canada, Paris, Singapore, Sydney, etc. Lets take a look at this chart from seeking alpha.


Majority of these aren't really popular in U.S, but they do extremely well internationally. Kajiji, Gumtree, Marktplaats, Slando, Lonquo and Mobile.de has just as much traffic as craigslist if you know how to sue it well. Kajiji and Gumtree consists of high quality traffic from Canada, England, Austrulia, Singapore that might turn into leads for your customers. if you do not speak their langauge, you can always use google translate or other online translation tool to make your ad in their langauge.

The problem with these eBay classified site is that you can not post more than 5 posts, and their tracking system as well as freedom is limited. You can not post your url, you can not post in their local area sometimes. So you'll have to highlight your url and expect users to link it themselves, and use a proxy server to get an ip thats in their country if there are problems posting. lets take a look at my stat.



Just about few weeks ago I barely had little direct traffic at all, but all of sudden I am able to gain 448 hits within short amount of time. Since I ran out of places to post on craigslist, having these traffic is always better than nothing. And of course, the very next traffic spot comes from barackobama.com.

Hopefully this helps, I am busy recently on my job so I havn't been out there to seek for more traffic, but I've just got paid by adsense, which will give me some boost to search for more ways. Next topic I'll talk about SEO, I've found some rank 6 sites which you can post your link on. If you like this article please feel free to leave a comment.

E-commerce player eBay has taken the Craigslist concept -- free classifieds and community -- and launched Web sites in 50 cities around the world that embody that idea under a new project called Kijiji.

"Kijiji builds local communities online, giving neighbors a way to come together around local needs and interests," said Alex Kazim, senior vice president of new ventures at eBay, who is heading up the new project. Kijiji is an independent start-up within eBay.

Kijiji, which means "village" in Swahili, has put down roots in localities in Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy and Japan. Though Craigslist has its strongest presence in the U.S., it also has dozens of international sites, having recently launched in 16 additional cities in Europe, Asia, and Latin America.

Following the Craigslist model, Kijiji will initially allow users to post and search for free. After it built an audience, Craigslist began charging for postings in some categories, such as jobs and real estate. EBay isn't revealing its future plans for Kijiji, but said it didn't expect the sites to have a material impact on its 2005 earnings.

EBay holds a 25 percent stake in Craigslist, which has been a huge competitor for traditional newspaper firms seeking online classified ad dollars. One study pegged Craigslist's cost to Bay Area newspapers alone at $30 million annually.

The e-commerce player has made other recent moves in the classifieds space, purchasing both Dutch player Marktplaats.nl and Rent.com in the last few months.

Craigslist dominate the classified ads industry in USA. One of the main reason is because it's totally free. Only one bad thing about craigslist is they have too much scams. I received so many fake emails. I started using www.123exchanges.com to sell my used things now. It's a much safer place plus I get to watch a video of the listing instead of looking at photos. It's very cool and fun.

Knowing the online status of your own site is one of the most important part of web mastering, and it only gets overpowered by knowing your competitors’ statuses. Using the seo tools from http://domof.com is proven to be an easy way of finding out hidden things about one’s competitors websites, things like : pagerank, backlinks, indexed pages, AdSense earnings or daily visitors.
