    Is anyone successfully using CL? I tried this a couple of days ago using a CL account creator.

    I created a post for one of my websites in the "Services Offered" category in several different states.

    For each ad, I used a different e-mail address, different headline, and different body text.

    Still, only one ad out of ten actually got posted.

    Are they filtering by IP address now?

    They do filter IP's. I post daily to craigslist and after every 5 posts I reset my IP by turning off my dsl modem, wait a minute, then turn it back on. It is a pain but I post around 20 ads a day and generates some revenue for me. Your doing the right thing by using a different e-mail address, different headline, and different body text. (every time). Clear your cookies often to. I use crap cleaner. Works good. Most of my ads go live.

    The flaggers are going to be your next pain in the butt once all of your ads go live!

    Its absolutely amazing that someone will waste their time sitting a computer flagging ads, when they could use that same energy and effort to make money online. I'm pretty sure its a "power" issue with them.

    I've been posting about how frustrating it is to get an ad up and keep it up on CL for days. I just started trying there and have almost no success. Frankly, until someone can show me some sort of proof they are making money, I'm not gonna run out and buy some cl autoposting shit. As for ip's, I've gotten non-marketing ads up without using proxies just to test if my ip was banned. Those ads got up and stayed up. I used my ip for marketing and some got up only to get flagged but the majority got ghosted.
    I've tried to use proxies also but most of the time I can't even get ON the fukin site using a proxy.

    I know folks are making money there but for the life of me I can't crack that nut yet.

    CL is really cracking down lately, used to be a lot easier.

    That's a good thing imo.

    CL filters on a bunch of different things. Make sure you wait 3 minutes between ads to get them all up when you're using the same IP. IP aside, there are any nunber of reasons you could get ghosted. If you're posting live links, they're tough to get up and keep up in some categories. Images can be difficult as a number of hosts are blocked. But they also filter a lot of two- and three-word phrases, especially spammy-sounding ones...even using the word "free" more than twice in a post gets you ghosted in most categories.

    I give up on CL a few months back as it's ridiculous and i found it wasted my time when could be getting better and confirmed advertising elsewhere for longer periods and know my ads were being posted unlike CL

    your best bet is to use ezadposter and a dial-up connection(to change your ip address). the program is updated all the time to adapt CL changes. i use this method myself and it works perfectly.
