Anyone use backpage(dot)com?

Looking to see if anyone has had success posting to classifies like backpage?

I have success using Craigslist, but wonder if I should even bother expanding to other classifies. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

    I don't know, but I'm going to be using it next week when one of my adult businesses is set up... Remind me to share my results.

      I had my partner post all day one time promoting a site and a cpa offer, 12 hours of work later we received 10 hits for the whole day , next day 9, next day , 7 then nothing. I didn't feel the need to test it beyond that for my niche at least. I'm sure someone here is makin it work, but it definitely wasn't worth it for me.

        Your experience doesn't sound to promising. Since time is precious, maybe I'll stick with just Craigslist.

    For services I have had no success with Craigslist. Though the Indian Craigslist isn't as big as the US one. So much smaller websites are unlikely to be even as good.

    Backpage is a waste of time. 90% of Backpage traffic is for escorts and other adult related services. Click on any category and you'll see 5,6 maybe 10 posts per day - then click the Escorts link and you'll quickly learn who's using Backpage. They were struggling until CraigsList shut down its adult services sections.

      I've personally had very little success using backpage. Its free though so it doesn't hurt to test it out for yourself. Good luck.

        Actually, I tend to use the paid version - because that way you can post the same ad to multiple places without running into problems. And if you place a featured ad (or whatever it's called), you get a nice visible ad right at the top right.

        Results vary, but I do get leads and signups. It depends on what you're offering... I find it's worth a try, particularly for free stuff, including teleseminars and webinars.

          A little off topic but for anybody else i use it for local SEO links because they actually still have regular business directorys that are old and hold page rank, my local sites i link to them don't seem to have any ill effect, i only posted this reply in respects to somebody wondering about that aspect of Backpage. Good Luck Everybody!!

    Ive had success with CL not backpage but just yesterday a women told me she made $6,500 selling an MLM scam in my opinion through backpage (now all the noobs are running to backpage)
    I think it was luck but who knows, it only takes one sucker when your scamming people. As far as building a business it is a complete waste of time and so is CL in my opinion.

    I would only use craigslist and backpage if i was selling cars of had an escort reviewing site, all else is a waste of the small time we all have on this earth.
