Search Craigslist in multiple cities

 Craigslist has replaced newspapers’ classified ads. However, from within a given city’s Craigslist, you can’t search other cities’ Craigslist ads. Craig wants it that way. So bear in mind that the ideas that follow don’t conform to Craig’s wishes. And now . . . here are a few ways to simultaneously search Craigslist in multiple cities:
1.    Go to www.google.com
Enter searchword site:craigslist.org
Caveat: This relies upon Google’s web crawler, whose index will be hours to days out of date, so some items may have already been deleted by the advertiser.
2.    Use www.CraigsPal.com, which is available in paid and free versions. You can search multiple cities and organize and sort results by date, price, and location in one results screen. View the videos on the site to see if it does what you want.

3.    Use www.Crazedlist.org. It works within a Mozilla Firefox web browser. When you first connect to www.crazedlist.org, you’ll see a pop-up window with instructions. Open another tab within Mozilla Firefox, and follow the crazedlist instructions. Crazedlist is simple, doesn’t organize the results for you, and doesn’t require that you install any software on your computer. I like it.
