Want to be notified automatically when a new classified ad is posted? [Yahoo! Pipes]( is a web service that allows you to compose powerful tools that aggregate, manipulate, and mashup content from around the web.

You may want to learn more about Pipes, but you don't have to. I've created and published a pipe that allows you to easily search through a specific category in the classifieds. Once you've completed a search Yahoo! Pipes allows you to add that search to various RSS readers or it will email changes to you automatically.

Here are step-by-step instructions for using the KSL RSS Search that I created on Yahoo! Pipes.

1 Browse to the classifieds and find the category you're interested in.
