So, I stumbled upon this by tinkering around on craigslist.org when trying to find myself a car. I thought it was very convenient and made searching much quicker when trying to narrow things down.
If you want to search for more than one specific thing at a time, you can use the OR operand by placing a pipe ‘|’ between the words.
If you’d like to search for very specific things, you can use the AND operand by placing ‘++’ between the words. For example, this is what I entered into the keyword field to search for a car:
I’ve yet to figure out how to exclude certain keywords from the search. If you find out how, please let me know in the comments below.
Update: I’ve used searchtempest.com before (previously craigshelper) to help me search for craigslist items beyond my local city. The owner, Nathan, contacted me letting me know he found this blog post and wanted to share his keywords help page here. I thought it was pretty useful, so here it is!
