[Yahoo!] announced today a new classifieds and listings division and the appointment of newspaper industry veteran, Hilary Schneider, to steer the U.S. unit...

The Marketplaces unit will encompass the broad array of Yahoo's listings properties, including Autos, Classifieds, HotJobs, Personals, Real Estate, Shopping and Auctions, Travel, and Yellow Pages...

Although the new division will surely affect internal operations at Yahoo, no changes to the newly-tethered classifieds and listings operations will be reflected on Yahoo's Web site, according to a Yahoo spokeswoman.

this is interesting

classified space is fun to watch - everyone scrapes each other
and yahoo scrapes THEMSELVES :)
if you look at all of their crossed properties

Craigslist blocks Oodle
etc.

Yeah, talk about closing the barn door after the horse has escaped... I'm a big fan of Yahoo and they'll be able to grow this somewhat, but Yahoo missed the big opportunities here I fear. But, if I were they, I'd be doing what they are doing now.
