Automatic posting of Craigslist ads
Has Craigslist changed it's policy regarding crawling their website and reposting their ads? I see 'feedbot' is creating posts here that link to Craigslist.
We are not crawling Craiglist's website nor are we reposting their ads on this site. We are utilizing the RSS feeds they provide and part of the descriptive information provided in that feed to provide a link back to their site where the ad can be viewed in its entirety.
Craiglist policy grants permission to include their RSS feeds on non-commercial websites provided that the information is credited to Craigslist and that the number of such linkbacks does not exceed 100.
To be sure we have informed Craigslist of our desire to aggregate their feeds in this manner and are awaiting their comments and explicit permission before fully activating.
Interesting. I didn't realize they were providing an RSS feed. Thanks for the clarification.
