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?
Facebooks just announced substantial changes to the news feed algorithm with changes to the types of content that will be given preference in the news feed. As has been expected for a while Facebook is tending more and more towards killing organic page traffic.

Alright Warrior Forum, here's the thing; every now and then I come to this site to see what is "new", which there is hardly anything "new"... but the biggest thing that I see is people either bashing or taking advantage of a "newbie".
To get down to business, I would like to point out the fact that newbies know nothing. They hardly know how to set up a WordPress site, and maybe have the ideas of how an auto-responder and a landing page works. So, kudos to them for taking the time to learn!
I am researching the best places to get quality, targeted traffic by posting articles and content on the web. I've been looking around this morning and there seems to be quite a few interesting options.
Here's a very powerful marketing lesson if you recognize and use it.
When I was a kid, everyone on the block washed and waxed their own cars in the driveway at home - even in the winter. On any given weekend day (most everybody worked M-F 8-5) you could drive up and down the neighborhood streets and see hoses, buckets, sponges, a chamois, towels, brushes, portable radios ("transistors") and assorted vacuum cleaner gear littering driveways everywhere.
