    Someone has done a good job here:
    Code:
    http://www.gumtree.com/london/82/38363482.html
    Over a 1000 views and they probably paid like £5 for the ad a week. Good job.
    This is the email you will get
    There are plenty of links in that email , that you cant see here since its quoted.

    Someone is using a good method:) Learn from it guys.

    Quite surprising how that one got through the spam filters, even paid ads don't go up if they look spammy, thanks for the share though :)

    Yeah that is what I was thinking. And its not like the person is getting replies and not answering so that they will not be reported. They answer immediately.
    But 1000 views means they must have been there for few days now.

    I have noticed that since their forum went wild with complaints of ads never going live it seems like they have removed a few of their previous spam blocks. My indian coder who has just finished my gumtree autoposter even had some of his ads go live in gumtree london and he wasn't even using a proxy, that's definately something new to me.

    This has been within the past week he is having his ads go live and that is posting the same ad in multiple categories from an Indian IP address and he is getting responses to the ads so definately not being ghosted or anything (Gumtree dont ghost anyway)

    I think you are a bit misplaced. Nobody won't steal this particular email thing.. Blackhat is about twisting.

    u probably wouldnt but i can guarantee u that some newbie will. would u post ur campaign on here? am sure u wont, so why shld someone post someone elses campaign on here..

    if u do a bit of research and find something interesting then pat urself on the back and try to learn from it NOT posting to every forum esp affiliate marketin forums.

    Have you been in money making section? Many people have posted their CL methods with all the tools and scripts needed.

    BUT... i can see where you are coming from. So i would not mind if this thread would get deleted.
