Craigslist first started as an email list for events in San Francisco in 1995 by Craig Newmark.In almost 15 years this classifieds website has grown to become the seventh largest English language website.Please read Craigslist personal safety tips before posting or replying to any ads (see Page).Disclaimer: While we make every effort to ensure the accuracy and reliability of our information at Dating Sites we shall not be held responsible for any discrepancy.Most of the early postings were submitted by Newmark and were notices of social events of interest to software and Internet developers living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. The number of subscribers and postings grew rapidly.There was no moderation and Newmark was surprised when people started using the mailing list for non-event postings.Every month Craigslist (not just the online personals section) gets more than 20 billion page views from over 50 million users in the United States alone.

Since it is a free service, it does tend to attract criminals looking for an easy target.If you want to make your Craigslist post stand out, you need to put a little more effort into it than the average poster.
