Craigslist Posting Technique
Craigslist often changes its filters to make sure only real ads show live.Recently CL has strict its rules and now there is no chance of mistake.If you post same ads twice (same day) then there is huge chance you will not get any live ad from that craigslist phone verified account.
Now here is how craigslist filters work.When you create a new account CL put check on that account you may start facing flagging first 3 days.The key here to protect your PVA is to post different ad daily and don’t post more than 5 ads from 1 account.After 3 days you will notice your ads are going live from that cl account.If you still don’t get live ad then use different method of posting.I am not saying to short your description or putting any hidden keywords,I am talking about html ad.There are different websites which offer craigslist posting code.Most popular website in these is Trulia,Postlets,apartmentdata.
After you get html code post that code in craigslist and see the magic.Your ad will be live in 30 minute max.While posting on CL, maintaining live ads throughout the year is a big challenge,You should not post more than 10 ads from one PVA the less you post the more your ads stick on CL.If you get flagged by CL from 1 PVA then immediately leave that and switch to new phone verified account. If you want to run successful campaign on craigslist then make sure to change account every month and if you are using any tracking code in ads then change that code every other week so CL don’t mark you spammer.
Gap of few minutes in each posting is a key and renewing ads is the worst technique to make your ads show on first page.CL may ban your contact number in ads because they will think you don’t have much properties and you are miss leading people by showing few properties.So never renew ads or if you renew then don’t renew that ad multiple times.Some people often remove older ads and post new ones that is good..but when you delete all of your ads daily and post new ads it also alerts craigslist and they put a check on your PVA. In this scenario when you post similar ads daily and delete one day old ads it can still cause problem.
Remember Craigslist is not easily cure able, Following craigslist guidelines is the only way of protection.
