    I use craig's without a secret guide and do just fine. I've had 2 signups in 1 month from their alone. Just don't get your account blocked by posting in wrong sections...that always sucks.

    I use it for advertising my websites. More effective than PPC

    Craigslist has worked well for me. I change every ad even if it's only a few words and use different email addresses. I bought one of the Craigslist ebooks, but didn't find much in there that I didn't already know. It's such a high traffic site, you can't help but get traffic when you post there.

    I would think craigslist would be a gold mine of hits with the proper techniques

    Does craigslist allow URLs in the ad. It didn't, when I posted.

    I just checked Craigslist and it said it does not accept business opportunity or MLM type ads. Their job ads must be for monetary compensation - not opportunity. What are you advertising?

    I have, but all of a sudden I'm getting spammed from other countries like crazy. I'm thinking this is why.

    I get a good response the same day I post ads and then for a short while thereafter. When it dies down, I just delete the old ad and place a new one :)

    Where on Craigslist does everyone else post? Has everyone had difficulty posting a URL there?

    I've never have had problems posting a URL (I believe you might have problems if it's just an affliate link). I've always posted in the Services - Small Biz Ads section.

    I'd be interested in finding out if anyone has had posting success just using the same graphic ad with different headlines? (In other words, do your ads stay on Craigslist or are they deleted right away?)

    I don't use graphic ads, but recently my ads have been getting deleted.

    Craigs List has been a total waste of time for me. I've been posting ads for several months now with zero results

    duckbird, it seems you are having a rough time with making money online [​IMG] everything seems to be going against you, i admire you determination to find something that works

    duckbird send me an add you put on craigslist i'll get you some replys.

    Also, be careful when posting our URL's especially if posting in the wrong section. as it would seam word phrases can be blocked out.

    By this i mean say your url has your name for me mine does have opendomain in it...which also is what my email is. So anytime i post anything with "opendomain" in it the add doesn't get flagged, but it doesn't get posted either. Leading me to believe they've blocked the phrase

    at any rate I have a a few more "secrets" and such that I use to not get flagged in the jobs section as often as I should[​IMG] Of course those are reserved for team members[​IMG] I'll give oyu a hint though:
    COmmon sense should help you get around their auto flagging system.

    I am only two weeks into using Craigslst, but have been getting great responses. I have the ebook but haven't had a chance to read it yet. I would say you just have to keep trying! [​IMG]

    Any real help here.

    I looked at the help section of CraigsList but didn't really get much there.

    Seems like most of the posts here just say that they're either successful or not successful.
