Every Friday I share a web tool that has help me or that I find interesting. Last week I discussed how to create your own screencast using Screenr.com.
Often I find that I am searching Craigslist for something I need. I go to Craigslist and search for it everyday. I kept saying to myself, “I wish I could set-up an automatic search to save time.”
Well, I found several services that can accomplish that and much more.
Notify.me delivers notifications that interest you in near real time. It eliminates the need for you to constantly check on classified listings, blogs or social networking sites.
Notifications are pushed to your destinations of choice such as instant messenger, mobile phone, email, desktop or web application.
Click here for detailed instructions on setting-up detailed instructions on custom Craigslist searches.
The uses are beyond Craigslist – they have documented how-to’s for Facebook, Google News, Yahoo! Real Estate, Songza and more.
An alternative to Notify.me is Yotify.
Yotify is a similar service that send “scouts” to crawl the web. You can search Craigslist, Youtube, ESPN, the Wall Street Journal, etc.
Yotify will easily allow you to track anything on the web that matters to you.
So, if you are ever experiencing the same problem as me and need an easier way to search craigslist, both options should be of pretty good value to you.
