    I've done this passively but now I might amp it up since I checked my adsense account today.

    $27.00 and I posted my site once 4 days ago.


    Get a couple gmail account, post in the major cities on CL, get traffic and clicks.

    Make a website that is mainly adsense. Buy a domain that will forward to your adsense website.

    Market domain (with an ad on Craiglist) people will type in your domain, get forwarded to your adsense website... browse around and most of the time click the links.

    Try to do it 3 times a week and watch your adsense account build up... maybe $200-$300 a month or more depending on the category you go for.

    You can also have live links on CL but they will burn out so make sure you don't use your adsense website as a live link. CL will eventually block and Google will catch on (referrer) and nix your account.

    I've seen a couple posters mention Craygo and EasyAd... whatever product you're marketing and selling. If you use either of those systems you should earn the money back the first month and then some.

    Hmmm, worth a shot. I have a few domains floating around that aren't doing anything so it can't hurt.

    Not bad HauteMami, thanks for sharing. Will look into it. May be another way to get money from CL other than just trying to push affiliate products.

    This method is actually what got me addicted to Internet Marketing. I was making well over 75 dollars a day JUST ON ADSENSE. I got extremely lucky, the first Niche I picked to market was SOOO easy to get traffic to and it paid about a dollar a click. That site actually still pays about a dollar a click but I cant drive traffic to it anymore. No matter what I do I can not get ads to consistently post on CL. I consider myself to be an expert in the CL field. I tried EVERYTHING. I used CL accounts, non CL emails, about 8 different proxy sites, made different landing pages with different domains, tied just one post a day, tried small cities, tried big cities, tried not posting for 30 days, literally tried anything and everything. I experimented for about 3 months straight, posting every day.
    I finally quit because I was only getting about 1/10 of my ads to post. I was not making near the money and spending way too much time on it. Oh, don't waist your money on an auto poster they catch on to that real quick.... And the ads I did get to stay on got deleted by some ass hole who had nothing better to do but go around and flag adds.

    When I was making good money I was posting about 60 ads a day which took me overall about 2 hours of manual posting. I was making anywhere from 75-125 dollars a day just in adsense clicks and got about a sale every other day on clickbank for 30 bucks. At one point I was even getting around 700 uniques a day and converting on 20% of those with my site very optimized for adsense.

    Those were the good old days and after 3 months of unsuccessful testing I determined that it was just waisting my time... If your new dont waist your time on CL. If you have been doing something and its working, good for you I guarantee it would not work for me. Somehow they know its me posting....

    If you are a beginner this is important for you to know. CL actually will tell you the ad you posted is live but it actually never posted. They are called ghost ads. What used to happen is you would receive an email that said the staff has flagged your ad. Now instead of doing that they just let you think its posted but never do anything with it. Originally people thought this was an error on their end but soon came to realize that its just them making it VERY hard to post. The only way to know if your ad actually went live or not is to actually monitor the part you posted and see it. I actually have about 100 CL accounts mostly all created with different IP addresses with about 3000 "live" ads, but the funny thing is I am not getting any traffic from them. They are all ghost ads. So please take this into consideration before you waste your time with CL.



    Sorry for the long post kind of a Rant but I really wanted people to know what they are dealing with before they wasted their time. This forum is great and I have learned a TON! I hope this is of value to some people out there!

    You are right and you are wrong in some points. Yes, it will be hard for a new person to MASSIVE post.
    I do 200 cities in about 2 hours. It doesn't matter what software you use, they are all the same. The staff of CL doesn't know and will never know. They are 15 people. They depend on the community and thier flag filters to do the work for them.

    What it comes down to are basics. I would like you to private message me an example of what you are posting. Make one and send me a link. I bet I can tell you what you're doing wrong.

    It took me 6 months of getting over the learning curve and I was frustrated like you. If you keep pressing you'll get a breakthrough. If you give up, that's more rev for someone else that got it.

    I don't mind giving a helpful suggestion so just send me a quick note. If it isn't too involved then I get back to you right away. If it's analyzing a whole campaign or helping you set up, well... we will work it out!
    :)

    Out of 100 ads I'll have 2 or 3 that will ghost. I'll analyze it, change some stuff and it will go live.

    Porn to redirect will get you low conversions and a lot of pissy people. Everyone is getting fooled in the personals. 90% of the ads there are spam and everyone knows it.

    The only success, in my opinion, are probably posting for the cam girls, it's more tangible and real and the guys will be talking to the marketers thinking they are talking to the real girl on instant messenger.

    That's the hottest thing right now but even that will probably get overworked since ERS is on lockdown.

    Already posted in different threads and may be in the wrong place to ask..but no real answer/solution was found so here is another try -

    Do you have any idea how one, living outside the USA can post on CL US?

    I can post any ads I want on CL with no ghosting.
    100 (ok 99%) of my ads are there everyday.

    But you can't do CL-> adsense, your account will get banned someday.

    Yes, you have to buy (rather rent) US based Proxies. A good set of proxies will run someone $50 to $100 or more a month.

    Cheap/free/public proxies are almost certainly overused and already on Craigslist's blocked list.

    It took me about 7 months to find a good source (I will not reveal my source so please don't ask!)

    Chicago?? What language is that in? Just curious...

    I was just thinking.. Some people create their own proxies, for less than $50 - $100/month.. Would that not work?

    Hey Vashtai,

    The only way to see if it will work is to try it. Just avoid public advertised proxies when you google that are free, you'll be wasting your time.

    Chicago is a city in the U.S., the language spoken is English and Spanish

    :)

    So brown, is that weblogging page your redirect to your affiliate page? I clicked your link and clicked properties and it showed the true web url.

    ;)

    But that is exactly how I do my redirects... the consumer won't know unless the right click... if there were a way to fool the "properties" page then that would trully trully be gold!
