    I had above average success with PPC and PPV. wanted to expand to classified postings.

    Wanted to know what are the optimum timings for posting Ads, and Which cities should I start with.. for getting my feet wet

    and do Gumtree, OLX and backpage have the Ad ghosting or Ad sticking problems ?

    It depends on the type of keyword, product or service you trying to promote with Classifieds ad. Google Insight gives you the clear idea about the popularity of certain regions or cities in any country. Using this tool will give you a clearer idea about which city to target for maximum conversion of your product or service.

    On Craigslist.org, the simple strategy is to take help from "www.alexa.com". It gives you stats about the top high traffic cities of Craigslist. Here is the link:

    Code:

    Among all the above mentioned classifieds ads, you will find craigslist to be the most challenging due to the high rate of spam attacks over there. However, using country targetted IPs (USA IP for Backpage & UK IP for Gumtree) will ensure that your Ad is not going to be flagged in those classifieds ads.

    Hope this helps you!
