Hi,

I am sick and tired of getting my ads banned and ghosted. I follow all the rules and don't spam. I only post in my area and not more then 3 ads a week.

So I am about to take drastic measures. Multiple accounts and proxies.

Has anyone used Hide My Ass for IP changes?

Also, what are my options for phone verification?

Any other tips?

Any help would be much appreciated.

    CL has changed a ton. It's very difficult to pull leads off now. Best to approach a CL leads seller with older leads for cheap. Another option would be to get locals to post ads for you.

    Of course the irony is that the reason your ads get banned, I suppose, are because others, including Warriors, are and have done what you are now going to resort to. This new drastic action on your part will make it harder for current and future users to get their ads approved and will increase the measures CL will take to protect itself.

      Ironic indeed. Thing is all I am trying to do is post 3 unique ads a week and post them in my city. I do no spamming of any kind nor am I trying to sell a product. All I am trying to do is a case study.

      I get great traffic and response while the ads are up so people are responding to my ad copy. Problem is the ads get banned or ghosted within a day or so.

        It happened to me twice last week I had like 38 leads in one day s last week and then I got ghosted. I think.another marketer did it.

    Craigslist has cracked down very hard over the past few months.

    I would just highly suggest moving your business away from them.

    I know about 3 offline companies that have used them for sometime, and they are all struggle and to get anything to stick.

    They all just moved on, after a few months of trying.

    These is always backpage.com , i have had some luck with them. I usually post on craigslist from my phone and never have an issue. It allows me to post twice a day for each account, but I do agree not to put a lot of time in that direction.

      Craigslist like any other worthwhile form of advertising takes study and work.
      I find it interesting that people don't say Damm PPC or Damm Blogging.
      Craigslist want marketers off the site but in the process hurts anybody that
      my use a spam phrase in their ad with a clickable link and get ghosted.
      It ain't easy anymore but it's still tops my list for targeted traffic.

      Backpage is notorious for ghosting ads also.
      They even ghost Sponsored Ads (ironically).

    I use to post on craigslist but I find it getting more difficult to do. I don't think they really want affiliate marketers on their site.

    There are tons of VPN services out there which do what you're looking for. The one I use is called Astrill and I've had no complaints.

    I used a guy off of ODesk. Just post an ad on there and pay someone else to do it. So much easier and pretty cheap actually. You can use that time to concentrate on other endeavors. I'm actually thinking of going back and trying this route with Pay Per Call.

    Using proxies will help, but only if you know what you are doing. Why are your ads getting banned or ghosted? Banned ads may be due to competitors, but ghosting is usually a red flag meaning you are posting or doing something Craigslist doesn't like. Proxies will help to a certain point, but I think you may find the same issues if you don't figure out the cause of your banning/ghosting of ads.

    I have a verified account in Craiglist and I can post Ad in Modesta California and it wont get Ghosted. I'm from Asia by the way. I have read somewhere else that buying a sprint broadband stick would give you a new IP everytime you connect. maybe this will help.
