    "Craigslist More Popular Than MySpace : Sign of Economy Says Hitwise"
    Read the article Craigslist More Popular Than MySpace : Sign of Economy Says Hitwise in Search Engine Journal.
    There is also an interesting counter conclusion.

    I found this response interesting because it is an indication that simple sites with good information/content can flourish:
    A sign of the times is that “garage sale” type sites are all seeing increases in traffic — e.g. Craigslist, OLX, Backpage, etc.

    I wonder if they took into account that some of those searches may have been because of the news story about Craigslist being sued for prostitution because of the erotic services section?

    Considering Bill Tancer's talk at the LinkShare Symposium in SF, I have to assume they did but the article doesn't address it.

    It also could be all the automated craigslist post services that keep pinging the site (possible error count for unique visitors) to put up spammy posts.

    I know of a few affiliates that are making coin on this strategy. But its hurting the quality. Just like myspace got replaced by facebook
