    It seems unless I'm selling lawn chairs or trying to get a date, I can't post on Craig's List.

    I've tried to post several different products today and they were all rejected. And yes, I did change the heading and subject matter.

    None of the products had anything to do with showing you how to make money.

    Try posting in the services section, it may reach your audience

    It might be that you rIP address has been blocked? Try posting a computer in the computer section and see if it gets blocked.

    If it does then your IP or the email address you're using is probably blocked and flagged.

    Try using another email address

    Same results

    Here is the reason I got .

    This posting is being blocked: Blocking Code 6095395

    Common reasons include:

    Essentially the same item has been posted to multiple cities or categories, or more than once in 48 hours
    Post contains a link or URL to a commercial website or auction
    Personal ad appears to contain a phone #, email address, or URL
    Many other possible reasons for blocking are listed in the Conduct section of our Terms of Use.

    That's interesting. I was just on the MPM forum and found people having problems posting on CL. I never had any problems, until that very same night! Very bizarre. I post stuff all the time to get rid of baby gear I don't need, etc. I'v posted for internet stuff but only do one add per week. This time for some reason, even though it said the ad was posted, it wasn't. I didn't even get a confirmation letter, and I didn't get a rejection code. So I'm stumped! Their rules are so strict and difficult to understand. It's frustrating!

    If some one on your ISP has been spamming, you will also be blocked.

    Craig's List wasn't working for me anyway.

    No, I've been posting Affiliate Products such as Weight Loss and Acne Removal. My affiliate link is cloaked so that actually the link would display something like "Click Here" or "Lose Weight Now"

    I just tried to post about 15 mins ago and was rejected.

    Affiliate links are often rejected. Try driving traffic to your site instead.

    I use Craigslist on a daily basis. You HAVE to set up a blog or something as a link to drive traffic to, NOT an affiliate link.

    I just hate this... I get the same message: "This posting is being blocked:
    Common reasons include:
    * Essentially the same item has been posted to multiple cities or categories, or more than once in 48 hours..."

    I've tried to use 3 different email addresses and still get blocked. I've used Firefox and Internet Explorer both and still get blocked!
    I'm freakin' sick of Craigslist blocking me when I KNOW I don't have any other postings out there!
    Is there seriously anyone who can help me???

    Hi,

    You can hide your link doing this,

    Here's how I did it

    Change the URL for the one that your promoting and you can change what you need to say too.

    Regards
    Luis

    If Craiglist is not working for you, you will need to find other places online to advertise. Maybe you should find other catagories to advertise in.

    Out of curiosity for those of you who do post on Craigs List for business' do you get any decent leads? We post things for sale, like furniture, on Craigs list and as busy as Craigs List is, I wonder how business' are noticed there with people that are really interested??

    You're not the only one. I have posted in so many ads like really renewed like 6 of them and got all of them deleted just because of that! There are other sites you can do. Have you tried Backpage or freeclassifieds.com? The 2nd one works great! If you'd like I can send you some other high traffic sites to you. Just PM me. Ok?
