Once upon a time, craigslist was a hot ticket for anyone trying to promote an online opportunity, or even sneak in a little bit of spam to gain some extra exposure... However, it has been getting harder and harder to maintain a steady of flow of traffic on craigslist, due to all the techniques they are trying to use to prevent spammers, such as ghosting, auto-flagging, Phone-verified accounts, and account suspension due to over-active IP addys.
I figure one of two things is going to happen.... eventually it's gonna become such a pain in the butt to post on CL that most people are just going to say "screw it" and craigslist will lose a lot of it's users and general interest... or people are going to just continue finding more vigrous ways to crack the security... and because of it, more posting tools are going to be developed and eventually create even more spam on the site than ever before.
What do you think is going to come of the future of craigslist marketing?
This post is targeted at folks trying hard to eke out a living selling or doing marketing online, especially if you are into affiliate marketing and stuffs like that. If you are yet to make your first $1000 and above online the first question you need to ask yourself is "What are the pro's doing that am not doing?" Believe it or not it's very easy to succeed online if you get it just right, what the guru's do is simple, once a system is successful for then in a little way, they simply SCALE IT. Simple repetition, that's about what they do, and this affords them the opportunity to make big bucks within a little time frame.
Does google consider site loading speed in its ranking factors? Ive have recently added a lot of ads to my blog and it is slowing down my site big time (let me hear it: ads is a silly way to monetize your blog) Im currently recieving very low organic traffic volumes as most of my traffic is coming from social media. My blog is fairly new and i dont expect much organic traffic in these early days, but could the slow loading speed be effecting my rankings?
