Craigslist helper

This might belong in the Cub Vine, but I didn't want it to get pruned so hopefully the moderators leave it here. If you want to search multiple cities of craigslist at one time, try using:

I think I just found my Cub Hauler Trailer using the Craig's Helper site. Great post and much appreciated. (Texas is a big place to search a city at a time :lol: )

Well, I think possibly that the best place for this thread is in the How To Forum? This is all about How To Maximize Your Search Experience on Craig's List. So I would suggest that possibly you repost there.

You are correct, this post does not belong on the main forum at all.. the How To or the WWWOT forum would be better. A How To should not be pruned, so the Cub Vine and the FSW Forum are not really choices.

Here is a little trick I'll just call Googles Helper. If you want to search ALL of the Craigslist ads in ALL cities, try this in Google search

farmall cub site:*.craigslist.org

The key is the * (asterisk) wildcard to search all the sub-domains that Craigslist uses, such as kansascity.craigslist.org.

This will show you ALL Farmall Cub ads for the entire country in one search. Be ready, there are pages, and pages of them -- I just counted 32 page results. Be aware, that ads may be flagged or removed (sold) when you click on the Google link from the last time Google crawled (searched) the site.
