I guess the old adage is true -- no press is bad press. We have been making great progress with the build out of our classifieds index in part thanks to the increased visibility we gained as a result of this issue.
We now have about 6M active listings in the index (which spans 50+ metro areas in the US). This brings us above the listing account we had about a month ago when we indexed Craiglist. And there are a lot more listings out there. I suspect we'll double our index in the next few months.
We still miss Craigslist. Unfortunately, I don't have much to report in with respect to getting them back. I'm still hoping to get a chance to talk to them. I have lots of ideas about how to address concerns that they've raised in a few press articles.
