    For keyword suggestions, always use this tool: https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal

    As far as getting traffic, post in blogs or forums in your local area or in the home improvement niche. or be more specific as to what kind of work they do. create a different listing for each type of job... one for kitches, one for bathrooms, one for glass, one for hardwood, etc.

    i'm not too experienced with getting traffic to classifieds, however, so that's about all I can suggest...

    You've got to be a bit smarter than just posting the same ad in multiple cities on craigslist. They have a policy of posting the same ad every 48 hours only and not in more than one city - so do repost every 3 days to keep it fresh, but if you want to post in more than one city, you'll need to write different copy for each city, and possibly use different email addresses too.
