CL ads that aren't on CL

Post by lacolocho » Thu Jan 19, 2012 12:15 pm

Using autotempest to search craigslist, I get results that I don't find when I search the craigslist sites directly.
I can still go to the individual craigslist listings, so I don't think they've been deleted or expired.

What's going on?

My guess is that there's a subtle difference between the parameters you're using when searching through autotempest vs searching craigslist directly. If you want to post the autotempest and craigslist results pages, as well as one of the ads that doesn't match, I could probably figure it out!

Wait! I figured it out. I realized that CL kept automatically selecting "title only" for my searches.
Oops!
