Craigslist Ghosting, we all know it’s extremely annoying and we want avoid it, sometime we ask ourselves whether we are banned by craigslist or not, and when we go on search engine to search for a solution we get nothing but bunch of stuff that doesn't work. The only thing it ever tells us is that we need to change our ip, our email address and we need to post unique ads, but it never tells us how =)
The trick to see whether your ad is going to display is always attach a picture with it, after you post the ad go look at the link to see the ad, if you can't see the picture on your own post that means your post is ghosted, it will not be on top of the board. This is the information I searched all over the net and couldn't get a straight answer, and I've tested this out through trial and error.
Don't post your url in regular url format. when you post your url, make sure you don't get indexed by google, post url with a href = "www.example.com" rel=nofollow This way will avoid people search for your url on google and report that you are spamming, because if you are listed for more than 20 cities on craigslist it’s pretty easy to spot out, that will get you banned.
I only post around 5 posts a day on craigslist about 1 topic, and that grants me around 400 to 500 constant traffic every day, I can also rotate the cities this way. Which means when I finish posting in all the targeted cities in a month, I can restart and people will not flag me down because it’s not really spamming. If you spam all the cities at once by next week you'll have no place to post, and you'll also run into problems where google adsense for receiving over 20,000 in a day, posting strategically will benefit you in long term.
Again, DO NOT SPAM CRAIGSLIST, DO NOT ABUSE THE SYSTEM. If you get banned or if craigslist take up the security measure we will all lose, if you want to know how to avoid getting flagged please visit here My next post will be few more places where I got my quick traffic as well as first step of SEO, it will also address some of my email messages that how to promote your site on craigslist.
