    Some help required please

    Last week I got fed up trying to gets ads on craigslist, so i hit up gumtree, london. Got an ad up for a simple one page cpa submit/autoresponder etc. Worked well

    I then put one up for a trial one, for a bigger pay out, but it was for anti-aging stuff,, but apparently that was against their TOS, so the took it down, no big problem

    Now however, I cannot post ANYTHING to gumtree. Even after i've wiped all cookies, used different names, addresses, postcode, used TOR to change IP.

    How the feck do these people know it is me?

    I know you can't post from US IPs on Gumtree, not really used Tor but are most of their IPs from the US? Or it could be that gumtree have just blocked alot of them.

    have you changed your email addy? i always use new emails per ad. so for example 1 email for 1-2 ads. then create more email accounts for more ads.

    Gumtree is really good at not letting people from an outside country post. It's very annoying. Not as bad a CL, but close!

    Sometimes it can take 2-3 days for an ad to go live on gumtree, especially over the weekend. Make sure to use different names, emails, address, IP, post code between posts also and don't make duplicate posts either.

    i´ve really got no chance on gumtree, too. Not one ad :-(
    I tried everything. E-Mails, Ips, UK VPN, and much more....

    I think the only problem is the IP-Adress. Iam from Germany and UK-VPNs are well known on gumtree i think

    You must enter your city, local area & post code when posting on gumtree. Check for yourself :)

    Actually I dunno if they've changed something there, I've been posting there no probs for ages (up until like 3 hours ago) but suddenly I'm not even getting the confirmation emails to respond to.. Previously if my ads didn't stick I still got the confirmation email.. Are you getting these?

    I wonder if it would be possible to post on Gumtree using the procedure in the following article, but instead of any web host, set it up with a UK host?

    Code:

    500 ads?? in which sections does he post? Just checked the casual W4M (which I find most profitable for me) and there's barely 100 ads for the day (and it's almost tomorrow GMT).. I know the normal W4M dating, and jobs/houses, are alot more popular, but I find even doing 40 ads a day accross both w4m sections I get at least 60% of emails filtered due to being a repeat recipiant..

    why 500 becouse gumtree delete each day all the post depends of the admin ,...3 4 times per day delete all ban ip ban mails ban message ,ban all ....ban words from text and etc
    dating was ok about 2 years ago ...now u can put 1 2 ads per day and need to wait several hour on dating to be live
