    Maybe try following their terms of service?

    Just a passing thought...

      I opened up a new account, had my IP address changed and placed one ad without a link and it still got ghosted. What more can I do? Thanks.

    Craigslist has probably blocked your IP address, you need private proxy server or VPS, check out BlackBox RDP

    Craigslist is a pain. Although there are ways to tip toe through these tulips, I have not found it worth it. I did make sales through Backpage however with far less headaches. And, you can sit and place about 50 ads an hour all over the US.

    With Craigslist getting an ad to stick takes a lot of creativity.

      I've tried Backpage a little bit, but it doesn't seem like there's much activity on there. I was wondering if it's worth it. I'd guess that sticking with a free trial affiliate offer that has wide appeal might work, but I have no idea if I'd stand a decent chance even if posting like crazy. But that is the good thing about Backpage, that you can post the same ad.

      Have you or anyone reading this had even one sale through Backpage?

    Paul Myers is correct. Amazing how everyone wants to exploit in a way that is against the objective. Craigslist can very good good to buy and sell if you do it they way they ask.

    I have no idea, been marketing on Craigslist for a long time and I'm probably on my 1,000 name. I do use craigslist posters now but I still get kicked off once in a while.

    Doesn't really matter to me, I make alot of money through craigslist and I do not have to pay for the accounts. Only thing that is making it harder is the phone verification but I have a way around that for the moment.

    Craigslist is only getting worse for traffic because they are getting better at stopping ads. Craigslist will always be a great traffic source if done properly. In fact if you google the stats of Craigslist you will see it's doing better than ever and making it really hard for newspaper classifieds to earn a living.

      craigslistadtracker should keep you from getting ghosted and it will also organize and track you campaigns. If you've been ghosted you need a new IP address...
