    Default Walmart Launches Classified Listings

    Walmart has added a classified listings service to their site. Silicon Valley startup Oodle, which was founded in 2004, is powering the service.

    http://walmart.oodle.com/

    The listings are free, which means Walmart is likely doing the deal to generate page views and advertising impressions. They also now compete with both Craigslist and eBay-owned Kijiji.

    Walmart has a mixed history of success with Web businesses, but Walmart.com attracts 26 million visitors a month in the.U.S., according to comScore. Amazon attracts 47 million.

    The classifieds listing’s went up quietly last week on Walmart’s site. The deal should help Oodle compeet against eBay’s Kijiji, which recently passed it in in the U.S., with 2 million unique visitors in April, versus 1.3 million for Oodle. Both trail way behind Craigslist, which has 30 million uniques, and is currently embroiled in a nasty lawsuit with eBay over Kijiji’s market entry into the U.S.

    The word "embroiled" is interesting to me. Don't know why.

    It's like "imbroglio", but not.

    Just had to share that with everyone.

    The word "embroiled" always makes me hungry for some reason.

    now that you mention it, kinda makes me think of shrimp scampi or snail stuffed mushrooms for some reason, whatever, it definitely involves loads of garlic & butter.

    I have one of those words that intrigues me as well....

    "Engorged".

    I think I'll make a point to use that one in public tomorrow. "Good morning, ma'am, how are you today?" And when she says "Fine, how are you?", I'll just look her in the eye and say, "Well, I can't complain, after all, I'm fully engorged right now."

    If I can work that in with "member", or "the blue vein throbber", it'll be a helluva day.
