Has anybody used the classifieds section of eBay? It costs more, but does it cut out the junk traffic you get on Craigslist? And is the traffic still worth it?

Not much clue here - doesn't get you feedback and Paypal doesn't cover buyer protection...so...you can imagine.

I see alot of classified add pages that people use to drive traffic to there own personal sites. Now if it realy increases the traffic that much I realy have no clue.

Is it easily viewable though?
I'd think that most people just go to the dot com, and search, rather than look into the classifieds?

Well, isn't the classified site just Kijiji? Now owned by eBay

I think its a different crowd more looking for local stuff. Well Kijiji is like that in Canada anyway. I use it lots to sell locally and it works very well.

Yes, it used to be a pretty version of CL for listing classifieds. eBay would have no part of that, so they bought them. If you look at Kijiji in Canada, you can see how it was. They dont show it as owned by eBay here, not sure why.

Hmmm.... So eBay owns them now? US and CA kijiji?
And the classifieds is basically Kijiji, correct?

If so, it doesn't seem to be well marketed . Or I've just been living in a cave

Well, that's why eBay bought it. They don't really want you to use it I think, so they don't push it. Here, ads are 100% free. Not so sure on the US end...

I assume they are owned by eBay here as well, but I dont know

Its awesome for smartphones. Here anyway. I've sold lots of blackberries. Get good high prices. Cash. No shipping. And they sell fast. I would never sell a smartphone on eBay

Now I cant speak for where you are though.

Research shows typical ebay classified can get 900 views. Works out cheaper than adwords but is it any more or less targeted?

wow 900? How its targeted is a really good question. Hell, I think I will post some ads this weekend and see how well they workout. If they let me. Being Canadian they may force me to use Canadian site.
