    If your services are meant for local people, then might as well use classifieds sites. Otherwise, you're better off not doing it. Your ads can be removed.

    Classifieds are like forums, it's better suited (IMO) for direct niche traffic, not SEO.

    Yeah, classified ads are always removed after 45 days or so, so you'll literally never get an aged link, and you have to constantly be replacing them.

    All that for very little value, not worth it IMO.

    This is good for local listing. A good source for "mentions" of your brand. Some classified ads allow you to extend your ad so just continue extending it.

    I don't think classifieds are good for ranking. But, you can generate good traffic from them.

    That's true. I don't rely on Classifieds. I will even suggest you to drop the idea of Classifieds.

    Even I'm planning to to do classified submission but the only issue is after few days you classified is removed by most of the portals.

    In short, it is just a temporary process of link building in my opinion.

    Do you mean like Craigslist? I have a review blog and when people sell their stuff on craigslist they link back to my review product. I'm not sure it helps with SEO but it certainly helps with getting free traffic and click throughs!

    It's not a campaign I actively pursue, I just link bait people to do the work for me =)

    Yeah classified expires for a period of time. Much better to divert your effort on building citation of local directories which is very helpful specially if you are hitting your local campaign.
