Exclamation CRAIGLOOK has now become.........


For those of you who frequent Craigslist and want to check on items that are 'scarce' or hard-to-find,
Craiglook was the place to find it, as they would take ALL the postings from across the
country on everything and it would pop up when you asked it. Apparently, the powers that be at
Craigslist didn't like them using a 'similar-sounding' name as theirs and told them to cease and desist
and they did so comply, but have now come up with a way around that little difficulty by renaming it.

Boy did this ever surprise and shock me. From the way craiglook appeared and carried the same ads I thought they were one and the same company, just a better user friendlier version. Guess I'll have to try the new one and also begin checking the less friendly craigslist.

I have a few 'saves' on the old craiglook and when I went to the site today a message popped up telling about the 'conflict'. I am glad that the site isn't gone, I go to it all the time!

Well I just checked out claz and craigslist and with the changes find that neither now serve me. Either that or I need lessons on how to use craigslist. Can you set the results for distance? I don't wish to see everything in Wichita, only close to where I live.

The results from claz are now so limited as to what is listed it has become worthless. About all I found was cars and boats and only a very few of the ads I saw just yesterday.

Those two companies definitely need to MERGE in my opinion. lol

I did a test run for "rocking chair" on the new craiglook, and not one craigs list ad came up.

I just sent another message to the idiots at craigslist. what a crock. Service to the community. yah. right. Can't do multiple listings in multiple things can only be found in ONE city listing. Which means, when I want to find, say "VW rabbit" parts, I now have to look in Madison. Milwaukee, Mpls, Davenport, Chicago, LaCrosse, Platteville, and so on...just to find ONE stupid part.

Rabbits anyone?

Have you tried Search Tempest? It lets you search Craigslist within a distance radius of your choosing, including the whole country if you are so inclined.

Thanks Wags. A better alternative than none. Was surprised it also turned up Ebay items on a search I did.

I used Craiglook all the time. It was my favorite online shopping tool. Not liking CLaz so far, and I've already thanked Craigslist for their part in it's closure. Thanks from me too, Wags for suggesting search tempest.

Claz is getting better, but still not the same as before. I don't think it was just a name change. There don't seem to be any CList ads at all. SearchTempest runs very slow and I don't care for the format. Kijiji is simply ebay ads. I want my old Craiglook back!
