Some of the best free traffic on the internet comes from classified ads and the best place right now to place free classified ads is on Craigslist.

Today we will start generating some traffic from classified ads on Craigslist.

Before we get started, let me state here that while Craigslist still represents the apex of traffic generation classified ad sites… posting ads to Backpage Kijiji, USFreeAds and others are extremely effective.

Now, there’s classified ad traffic…


There’s Craigslist classified ad traffic!

Some of the best free traffic on the internet from classified ads can be generated from Craigslist.

In some ways, Craiglist is like eBay.

eBay is a huge marketplace with two distinct groups of people… BUYERS and SELLERS.

In similar fashion, Craigslist is a huge marketplace of two distinct groups of people… SHOPPERS and PROVIDERS.

* Shoppers are seeking jobs, products and services.
* Providers are providing jobs, products and services.

What makes this dude Craig and his list so popular is of little importance. What is important are the stats.

It’s reported that…

* +40 million people use Craigslist every month.
* Craigslist gets 10 billion page views a month.
* And Craigslist is currently serving 567 cities in 55 countries.

Seems like there’s just one big international party taking place over at Craigs joint.

His party list has gotten mighty big… and guess what?

YOU are invited to the party…so put on your dancing shoes!

If you are looking for a way to crank up your traffic, leads and sales then I highly recommend you test some free ads on Craigslist.

From my experience, there are three things that will really turn Craigslist into a traffic workhorse for you.

1. A great free offer.
2. Great graphical ads.
3. A large volume of ads.

When it comes to #3, you will want to consider outsourcing this.

Doing large volumes of ads on Craigslist crosses over into more advanced methods as well as using controversial auto-posting software and outsourcing.

There was a time when auto-posting software for Craigslist was abundantly available. Today however, just about all of those software programs are gone.

It’s not that the software didn’t work… it’s that it didn’t work for long. It seemed like Craigslist was always several steps ahead of the automators who tried to exploit Craiglist.

That said, there are still ways to post large volumes of ads on Craigslist, however that goes beyond the scope of this post.

For this post, let’s keep it straight and simple by sticking with the basics that you can use to start posting on Craigslist today.
