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 am unemployed now. Can you help me? I can be your VA.

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.

Imagine links so clean, Google won't touch you. Read on

This is fantastic for regional guests. An excellent source for "mentions" of your item. Some classified ads allow you to increase your ad so just continue improving it.

As Pat Flynn says: "Be Everywhere". Google is becoming better at recognizing your site being mentioned without even linking. Post some classifieds every once in a while, but dont make it your only focus! Diversity is key with SEO

yes, they do expire.

But, all you have to do is to log in and re-list your advertisement. In many cases you will even maintain the same url >> what leads to established aged backlink

Espescially classified ads websites are great for:
Selling pets;
Adult ads;
Selling mobile phones.

As for seo, local classifieds are good to promote different products of ecommerce shops (if you can lead the links to the page of the promoted product).

good luck,

Well, I don't use classifieds sites at all, as ads are removed means your backlinks are removed and in SEO, if links are removed it gives bad impact.

So far i only trust on craigslist that will really able to reach your client and make money .
If for SEO , it still help but the weight is low .
Low and less content with advertise purpose, Google will only give a low weight on it .
But what I found is most of the banner i submit together with my classified post , do get found easily in image search instead on text search result.

They are still working very good for local and global businesses, Classified can be used mainly for driving traffic for the website, but ensure to have quality list of websites for submissions which is more important from Google point of view.

Yes, Classifieds are still effective for seo. These are very useful to promote the website as they get posted immediately and can generate sales queries in a couple of hours. Classified Ads are posted on Resources which already have traffic and have a lot of people refer them for quality products and services.

Depending upon your business and you doing it by using different sales pitch lines in description column and unique titles and also from verified email account. Do register always when doing classified submission. Fill your complete profile, it will look more genuine.

hello friend,

classified posting can hardly help to optimize ranking as many of them are nofollow. Also, there are only few classifieds that permits to place links within ads. But classifieds posting are much fruitful for free publicity. I would suggest do more for traffic like forum posting, blog posting, http://traffic-generator.ezmlm.org/, micro blogging, guest post etc. thanks
