      I don't thing CL is good for SEO jobs especially for getting backlinks. I have seen a lot of people posts on CL only for getting sells. CL is very good for affiliate marketers.

        Craigslist isnt very useful for getting backlinks, plus you may get your link removed much much sooner.

        Craigslist is good for getting direct traffic to your website.

    Trying to build backlinks from CL for an SEO purpose isn't going to be very effective. Most postings are gone within 30 days, including any backlinks.

    But CL is a GREAT way to generate leads, which is why you do SEO anyway. But I'd take CL leads over SEO leads any day.

    You can't get ranked on Craigslist, you might get raked

    I may be wrong but I believe Craigslist automatically makes your links no follow.

    Personally, I wouldn't use Craigslist for any kind of rankings in the search engines...if it happens, great, but would't do it with that being the goal.

    Craigslist is really great for leads, promoting your garage sales and selling stuff....really great.

    Forget Carigslist. Its a not long term and besides your postings are deleted after 30 days. You should get some good backlinks from other forums and websites.

    In my opinion CL is great for the traffic it can drive but not good for link building. I'm pretty sure they nofollow
    all of the links from Craigslist so the only real value is the traffic. I have never been benefited from CL backlinks,
    however if you have your own products, it can surely bring some sales.

    Yeah having a backlink from craigslist is good. Its an authority site and when google see's that they will give you more credit.

    Log into your account and go to post to classifieds. Then go to community. then choose general community. Here you can place a hyperlink or your keyword linking back to your website. remember you don't care about the traffic on craigslist as much as you care about the backlink and the authority it provides.

    Works like a charm every time!
