    Maybe your ads got ghosted, check them, are they still in CL?

    Nah they'll never blacklist your IP for 5 ads, use proxies next time + make non-spammy looking ads. No worries, rinse and repeat :)

    ok thx.

    Proxies? hmm what about this hide my ip software I already got? It results easier for me than proxies, is it as effective?

    I can't say much about "hide-my-ip" because I've never used it, but I can direct you to a place where you can find the info you need. On these forums, we have a "proxies" section, which will show you how to obtain and use anonymous proxies. Check it out.

    From experience, if you use a program like Tor (and possibly hide-my-ip is similar), then you'll get an ip that is shared by a bunch of people, so it's more likely that your ads will get ghosted.

    Was the ad copy all the same and were they all posted on the same account(s)? If so, then it's likely that either your copy and/or accounts are the problem. 1 ad per account per 48 hours is getting to be a pretty strict rule with CL, unfortunately, so you should increase your number of accounts if you want to post more ads in a shorter amount of time. Also, consider getting more IPs with some proxies or through other means...you'll most likely have to buy PVA's if you get proxies.

    If you did indeed get the "removed by Craigslist community" message than your AD was simply flagged.

    This mean that other CL users flagged your AD enough times to remove it. Chances are that a competitor of yours did this. It happens very often in certain sections of CL... the sad thing is that there is nothing you can really do about it.

    As long as they click Flag... it's gonna happen. This has nothing to do with IP address or ghosting whatsoever.

    See This Thread for reference.
    Hope that helps :D

    This CL thing is not as easy as all the methods claim...

    Use proxies, thats giving me a headche, creating different accounts, and for most sections I need PVA's..

    Im willing to put in my twists, brain and hard work, anyone suggest me a good method other than CL? Im about to give up on them... pls PM me.. im so frustrated right now..

    I dedicated about 14 hours of my weekend into trying couple different CL methods and didnt profited.
