    Before somebody tells me to purchase from a proxy provider can somebody tell me what the problem might be with my CL ads? I have been using proxy from ProxyFire, checking them with a proxychecker. All the proxies work fine, I post ads fine, my ads are published and not ghosted/ nor flagged, but I dont get any responses. The only ads ive gotten responses to so far are the ones made from my IP address..All the other ads are live, and people have checked for me, yet no responses?

    have you tried responding to your own ads?

    actually your ads are ghosting thats why you are not getting any replies

    try to post ads with private proxies bcoz public proxies are crap & already blocked by CL

    as others suggested you should test more by replying to your own ads. Also if responses are going to a gmail acct are you sure they are not going to SPAM? This seems to be common now.

    When I try to respond to the majority of my ads, it says

    Code:
    Page Not Found
    
    
    There is nothing here
    
    No web page for this address
    
    404 Error

    Me and my friend were wondering, because we have very similar ads, yet hes getting 50 responses per ad, while im getting about 15-20.

    CL tells me when the ad is similar, thats when I change up the writing until it goes through. Sometimes the proxies from ProxyFire would let me post in big cities, and I dont get asked for an account.

    Looks like most of my ads are not found when I try to respond to them, and the other ads are simply removed by CL..

    Any ideas/ tips BHW?

    Do you use PVA when using proxyfire's proxies?

    public proxies will make it very hard to post on CL.
    Not using PVAs does not make it easier ;)

    But the warning message you posted here doesn't make sense. You probably entered a wrong URL !

    I get that warning message everyday when I'm posting. I take it as a sign to change my IP... lol I just got that warning 15mins ago, I changed IP and I still can't get a non-softblocked IP from the comcast pool...

    The adventures of posting on CL...
