CL makes money only from certain high profile areas for real estate and rental listings. and im sure their shirts and gear as well.

Not sure about wikipedia though.

It took some serious time to develop Craigslist... I remember when it was just a local San Francisco thing, and now it's spread nationwide.... That guy wasn't making any money at all for probably the first 10 years.
