Duplicate Ads Create a Time-Bomb on Craigslist

Duplicate Ads Create a Time-Bomb on Craigslist

time bombAre you posting the same ad on Craigslist everyday? It’s just a matter of time before the time-bomb on Craigslist goes off!

I was reviewing one of my clients ads for LiveAdMachine the other day and he told me he posts the same ad everyday.

That is a huge mistake, because Craigslist does not allow you post the same ad every day.  Craigslist and the community prefers to not see the same ad everyday, so they will flag your ad.

How to Post Without Getting Flagged or Ghosted

You may want to watch this video I created on preventing ghosting and flagged ads first.  Spend a little time creating some ads before you post. I would suggest about 2 to 4 ads. Another suggestion, is do not use the same phone number and website, that is considered a duplicate post it is very important to understand this. To have great results on Craigslist you only need to post a few ads and renew them every other day. That way you are following Craigslist rules and less ads will get flagged and ghosted.

3 Rules to Guarantee Your Success on Craigslist

Rule 1: Never Post the same Ad on Craigslist.

Rule 2: Do Not Over Post on Craigslist- Renew The Same Ad Every Other Day.

Rule 3: Stay in Your Area and Surrounding Area.
