    There are tons of methods to choose from. Many are explained very well on this forum.

    Last year I banked by putting ads in "women looking for men" sections all over different cities. It kinda died when they got more zealous with flagging.

    But in essence all I did was set up a bunch of yahoo accounts and had vacation messages on them. The vacation messages would read something like

    "Hey whats up sorry I had to run out for a second.

    Check out my blog hxxp://*myredirecturlhere*/

    I have some pictures on there. My phone # is on there also but lets chat before you call me please"

    Something in that nature. Basically you had to appear normal and "real".

    Some problems I ran into
    1) At first didn't get flagged much. Towards the end it became extremely excessive, not even sure my auto reply would work anymore.
    2) Be mindfull of where you set up your redirect url. I lose several hosts due to complaints.
    3) Make sure the sponsor knows what youre doing. They will get complaints and you won't get paid. Best thing to do is approach them and be honest (but vague) about your promotion tactic.

    Hope this helps. Would love for some other CL fans to chime in.

    I have heard Craigslist is a good way to get visitors, but can I do it for any type of site (sites other than adult)? I also have heard eBay is a decent way to get visitors, and I got an eBook about it, but it was way over my head.
