The classifieds sections isn’t always the first thing that people turn to when they open a newspaper (do newspapers even exist anymore?), but it’s a helpful resource for buyers and sellers who want to connect with each other. If you’re on top of things, you’ll probably even find some really good deals. When craigslist came along, people became excited about classifieds again because now they were online in a new way. Of course, craigslist is popular because it seems like everyone knows about it, but that doesn’t mean that it’s the one and only way to navigate online classifieds. For example, Oodle has built a classifieds site that’s actually pleasant to look at.

This site pulls together listings from over 80,000 Web sites, and because of that, over 600,000 new listings are added each day. In other words, if you can’t find what you want here, then you’re probably going to have a hard time finding it in general. The filtering options are fantastic and help you to narrow down your search, plus you can get e-mail updates whenever new stuff is added. Even though Oodle works with other sites, you can still post a free ad directly through the service.
