Craigslist Statistics user count and Facts 2023

Craigslist is an online classifieds website that allows users to buy and sell goods, find housing and jobs, and connect with other people in their local communities. The website was founded in 1995 by Craig Newmark and was originally designed to serve the San Francisco Bay Area. It has since expanded to include hundreds of cities and regions around the world.

Craigslist operates on a simple, text-based interface that allows users to post ads for free, although there are fees for job postings and for ads in certain categories, such as apartment rentals. The website is known for its no-frills design and its commitment to user privacy and security.

Craigslist has become one of the most popular websites in the world, with millions of daily visitors and billions of page views each month. The website has also faced criticism and controversy over the years, with some critics arguing that it facilitates illegal activity and scams, and others praising its accessibility and impact on local communities.

No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
