Why Your Craigslist VPN Doesn’t Work

Why Your Craigslist VPN Doesn’t Work

Craigslist VPN TipIf your ads are constantly getting flagged and deleted you may consider using a new Craigslist VPN.

Craigslist tracks everything you do through your ip and this is to help prevent spam.

Unfortunately if you are not spamming Craigslist you could be affected and will need a vpn Craigslist posting tool.

What is a VPN for Craigslist?

VPN means Virtual Private Network. Being that this is a Craigslist blog and I don’t want to over complicate things, I am going to explain this to you as easy as I can for you to understand. If you are detailed and you really want to understand how VPN’s work just go here for a detailed overview.

As I mentioned earlier Craigslist tracks you through your ip. Your ip is a unique number assigned to you by your internet service provider to access the internet. Most of time this number does not change. If it doesn’t change Craigslist will limit the ads being posted through your ip address. This is why you experience flagged and deleted ads a lot.

So if you can change your ip using a VPN service that works well with Craigslist, your ads will go live again.

VPN Recommendation For Craigslist

I have found the best VPN for Craigslist is HMA or Hide My Ass. It is also very easy to use. I must WARN you though, If you are someone that can’t get any ads live, changing your ip with a VPN software might not be your only issue.

I highly recommend taking some Craigslist training if you are having trouble.

  1. plz tell cragilist for best vpn which?

  2. Using a VPN is just trading one connecting problem for another. Craigslist blocks VPN access when it can because it is a way for scammers to have anonymity when posting their ads.

  3. I don't even post on CL, I just search.
    I'm a graphic designer and reply to ads for people who need logos and Photoshop work done.
    I can only do so many searches then my IP gets blocked.
    Would a VPN really help?

    • Craigslist will block you after 20-25 searches. Yes a VPN would help you. I would do 10 searches per ip. Hope that helps you.

  11. I think CL blocked me because I had my web address in my ad, not realizing that is a no no. I then bought a vpn service and got blocked on my first attempt. Is there a service that won't get blocked? How do they recognize me…by my phone number or email address? Should I get a new number and change my email address or what? I have to be able to advertise on CL to make this business work.

  12. Wade, sorry to hear that you are blocked. you can fill out a free consultation at http://liveadmachine.com and I can provide you more options

  19. I’ve been posting in about 40 cities for the past 9 months, everything has worked perfect until recently. I advertise 3 products, and have 4 different ads for each product. I post new ads (and rotate the listings) every two weeks. Lately at least 2 sometimes all 3 items will be flagged before going live. This has happened in 75% of the cities that I post. I have been using a mobile hotspot to change my ip address after each city. I’m feeling helpless, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
