Hoobly.com is a free local classified ad website established throughout the world. It has been around since February of 2003. The website is more well-known for its numerous pet advertisements, but this group of ads only falls under one of Hoobly's many categories.
Other popular categories are Clothing & Accessories and Real Estate. Hoobly is considered to be an alternative online marketplace for eBay sellers. To protect buyers, the registration and verification requirements help shut down scammers before they have a chance to use the site. Hobbly.com is led by CEO Peter Grigor. In 2008, Grigor stated that the site had more than 500,000 registered users and about 60,000 active members each month.
