Still not a greater form of local traffic form most industries than Craigslist.com. It may seem a bit retro and ‘old-school’ but the amount of daily local targetted traffic that you can see using Craigslist is undeniable.
So what is the challenge?
Your competition knows this too and you can only stay on top of Craigslist local listings until you are pushed down the page and lose traffic to the guy who posts more regularily than you do. At the same time you must adhere to the rules set forth by Craigslist in terms of posting rules and volume allowed.
One post for every 48 hours is their standard per account, but this really doesn’t do enough to keep you getting steady traffic.
Multiple account is allowable if you have more than one employee with one each that can rotate this task of posting on craigslist.
This also works well since you need a phone verified account for each peron posting in most every category.
Now that is the traditional information about Craigslist advertising. There are alot of autoposters which are against the rules and best practices. When they name themselves posting schedulers or organizers for posting then you can argue they are gray hat SEM at best,
This type of extreme regular posting was a hot item of contention and got alot of software designers sued in 2008 for bypassing the captchas and posting at a heavy steady rate. You can often see who is adverstising this way by scrolling to the bottom of the add and searching for the raning words and text that is added by this type of software.
You may also want to press CTRL+A to highlight the page in case this is white text on white background.
Do you want to pursue this kind of questionable marketing on Craigslist? Probally not.
Is it good to have people who understand how the competition plays the game? A sure yes.
