Why does Craigslist work?

Craigslist is one of those sites that never ceases to amaze me. I look up to them the way I would Amazon, Google and Wikipedia (notice: I did not say Yahoo or eBay. They’re lucky we even bring them up anymore ;).

Sure Craigslist did not invent the wheel. We’ve had all these tools forever. I often wonder if Craigslist served ad words, how much could they make? Would it hurt them in the long run? If Google can run adwords and not hurt their following; why not Craigslist?

Personally, I don’t ever see them getting knocked off by another company. Craigslist helps people everyday and pisses “the man” off, just as often.

I’m going to continue revisiting this post.
