How to: Create Your Own Craigslist Analytics Server
I have been using Craigslist Ad Tracker [CAT] for some time to keep an eye on items listed on Craigslist.
Recently, I ran into a new limit of 10 items that CAT has put in place. Frustrated, I started searching for a replacement and didn't find much.
I recalled reading about an open source Google Analytics tool called Piwik. I hadn't tried it out yet as for most sites Google Analytics is hard to beat. I gave Piwik a try and found that it works pretty well for giving insight into ads on Craigslist.
