    I was wondering if anybody has any experience with posting ads on OLX? I have been posting ads on Backpage and Craigslist successfully. However, my ads on OLX are getting removed. The ads are all unique with completely unique titles. Does anybody have any insight into this or any experience posting multiple ads on OLX?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you,

    -goalguy

    I only post in the United States. So I am only using the main OLX.

    Why not? OP just mention that he have successfully posted to CL in the past, not asking for any service.

    To OP, I have some plans on posting myself to OLX. Will let you know how it goes.

    Like Schvamp said below I was not asking for any type of CL service. Is CL not allowed to be mentioned at all?

    Good Luck. From what I can tell all of the posts are personally moderated and reviewed by a live person. Once you post an ad they give you a message stating it could take anywhere from 3-6 hours to be posted.

    I even took the measure to contact them once one of my ads was flagged and asked why (anonymously of course). I was given a generic response so it was no help.

    Because of lawsuits that occurred. Because it would be best for our mutual good. Thought you knew Jr Executive. :)

    A couple years ago I posted classifieds ads on all the craigs wannabes just to get the links. As far as i know some of them are still there. Everything helps right? but you won't get the traffic you get from CL but you also wont get most of the posting headaches either.
