Craigslist is the largest classifieds site on the net with over 50,000,000 new classifieds posted monthly generating roughly 20 billion page views per month. Although Craigslist is a national website there are specific areas of the site for most regions. The section specifically for the Long Island market can be found by visiting https://longisland.craigslist.org
Craigslist has categories for virtually everything you could possibly want to sell and includes discussion forums, community message boards yet it is most popular for its classifieds, specifically its jobs and automotive categories. The majority of postings on the site are free while a handful of business related categories require a small fee per post. The service was originally founded in 1995 by then New Jersey resident Craig Newmark. The service grew to massive popularity and was incorporated in 1999 as Craigslist Inc. Its current headquarters is in San Francisco, California.
Craigslist offers an API service for high-volume multi-ad posters for particular areas of the website.
