    This is how I mix my CPA email submit offers, with legit ads, and adsense revenue sharing. I came across gladlist.com (someone there suckered me into a phony email submit, :D) well, its like craigslist minus all the too-much-time-on-their-hands flaggers who love to sabotage our ad campaigns. The good thing is that there is no registration and they offer you adsense revenue sharing. So what I did is this:

    I get my local newspaper classified ads and look for cars to buy, I even go see the car and take a couple of pictures of the car (because I'm looking at the car for a friend and they want to see pictures, well thats what I tell the seller at least). Now I have the persons phone number from the ad, I have the vehicle description from the ad and from what I have seen myself, and I have photos of the vehicle. You can even ask a person if they mind you listing the car online so it sells faster and ask for a commission or up front fee - whatever your pleasure. You would be surprised how many people are computer illiterate and still pay a newspaper to list their vehicles for sale.

    Next I created an ad for a used car for sale and added an affiliate link to a supposedly free carfax check (really a framed email submit cpa offer - like the one that I fell for). So on the car for sale page I give the details of the vehicle and offer a free carfax report to be emailed to the potential buyer for the vehicle. Of course they don't get one but if they are really interested I still post my affiliate link to the carfax vehicle history report where they can buy one. I use the addthis widget on the ad page to promote the page in all the social bookmarking sites, and look on other classified sites Wanted section for people looking to buy cars and send them the page as well. You can do more to send visitors, just don't use those traffic exchanges with your adsense ads on a page, Google doesn't like that.

    So even if no one submits their email for the fake carfax report, or buys a legit carfax report, I still make money off the adsense revenue sharing and the clickthrough on the site is in the range of 3-8% (sometimes higher) from I've been tracking in my adsense.

    Now this method might take a little work but sometimes we have to push away from the computer and go outside to find different ways of making money online. Of course you can always rewrite ads from other classified ad sites and copy their pictures.

    The main thing is to just be creative, for instance since gladlist offers adsense revenue sharing and adsense ads are based on keywords, try putting up a small business ad about attorney services for dwi convictions, or mesothelioma settlements. Adsense does a good job of scraping this site and displaying very relevant advertisement.

    Here is the link to the site: http://www.gladlist.com

    Here is the info on their revenue sharing: http://www.gladlist.com/revenue_sharing.php

    This was just an example to get you started but I figure you blackhatters out there will know how to run with this. Good Luck

    Not many ads on that site. I couldn't find any from my area and then I checked Los Angeles and they didn't have anything either. Not sure how this would work.

    I advertise on the default page which is Rochester NY, then I send social bookmarking traffic to the page, as well as offer whatever I'm selling for sale on other sites pointing back to the classified ad. So I get a cut of the adsense and I don't have to worry about getting flagged. I recommend the default page, its more populated. It cost nothing to make a go of it. You can also work this method on CL or backpage. Basically outside of revenue sharing it works on just about any classified ad site that will let your ad stay up long enough...

    hmmm Gladlist is 5,632,557 in Alexa according to my toolbar, and craigslist is #33... Just something to think about. I searched for a bunch of different things and couldn't find a single item. Looks like a dead site.

    CL is a beast of course, but like i said the tactics can be used on any classified site. i just find it easier on this smaller site because i don't have to deal with competitors and do-gooder flagging my posts 10 minutes after they go live. I'm only trying to share something here, to use it or not, I'll leave that up to you
