    Another client mentioned that they are getting a lot of additional new visitors, driven away from CL and to their site because of that... I would imagine that might help out other classifieds sites as well. Has anyone else noticed a rise in listings on your site, possibly driven by angry CL posters?

    Also on this thread, remember this is in the "public" section so search engines and anyone else can see it... Just a warning so careful about posting links or info you might not want public info.

    It appears CL is still sticking to their founding strategy which is the keep individual-to-individual postings free while charging for business-to-individuals ones. Last I saw, 90% of their revenue is from recruitment ads ($75 for San Fran and $25 for most other markets) and a growing amount from real estate listings ($10)

    It's the strategy I plan to use for my niche site that I'm launching within the next month.

    Geebo.com classifies most things has the strategy of focusing on recruitment ads and theirs start at $75 and they have subscription programs. They've invested in their development that when you post with them, they auto post it to a handful of massive job sites too.

    According to a recent Nielsen Report - all smart phone users spent 89% of their mobile media time in the fourth quarter using mobile apps.
