We are no longer adding new Craigslist listings to our index. We received a request from them to do so and we honored that request. We’ll miss Craigslist. They are clearly a good service and we're big fans. We are working to understand and address their concerns.
As of last month, about 80% of our listings came from sources other than Craigslist. Without them, we still have about 4.5M active classified listings and that number will continue to climb by the millions in the coming months.
We strongly believe that search plays an important role in any Internet ecosystem, especially ones involving commerce. We’re glad to have had a good response from the 99.9% of the other classified publishers in our index and we’ll continue to work hard to make them happy. We send them free traffic. We don’t compete with them by taking listings. And we'll continue to work hard to make classifieds a better online medium for consumers trying to buy & rent things.
At the end of the day -- with our without Oodle -- consumers check multiple sources when using classifieds. Oodle makes this process less painful and helps consumers to be more successful. And if you're in the business of publishing classifieds, this is a good thing.
