I need a craigslist Auto Poster

    I need a craigslist auto poster.

    I have a car dealership and i usually have about 5-6 cars at a time that i need to be posted on craigslist.
    Here's the thing though. When i am posting the car, i need to post it in multiple cities. About 10-15 cities.

    So i need a craigslist auto poster that can do the following :
    -Repost all ads with a click of a button
    -Post the ad using my 16 accounts to post 1 ad in every city.
    -Type captcha codes
    -Not get caught
    -easy to use!

    I dont recommend on doing this, only because lately people will mark it as spam or mis-categorized. You`ll also start to see less of ghosting on craigslist due the new system of verification that they have.

    You can do different things, once you posted an ad like adding a magnetic headline.

    Example: black honda s2000
    Modified: Honda S2000 2003 33k miles! Must See!

    What James Byun said is right. You will soon get banned or even worst all your posts will be deleted if they come to know that you are automating posts. I would suggest you employ people who will manually do it. You can get them from Fiverr (only $5) or recruit people from DP

    This is very true for pretty much all places like Craigslist. Just be aware that when posting on sites (paying people to post on sites) like Craigslist, you need to be careful -- if it's obvious that you're spamming your link everywhere, you'll be banned immediately and your posts will be removed.

    Not only you will get banned for doing this, but also your MAC address (not to confuse it with mac computers) will be banned. They can now ban your computers individually or as a whole network.

    See more on MAC here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MAC_address

    By the way, you can post your ads on backpage.com too. They are more lenient when it comes to posting multiple ads in multiple cities. I see dealers there posting 100's of the same ads daily.

    It's not like the old days before CL knew what they were doing. They were a giant and huge traffic generator and then they started getting smart. You can do auto-posts, but you have to do a few at a time. Trying to do 500 or 1000 in a day is a big red flag.

    I agree with most of the advice so far.... you are risking getting flagged or ghost listed if you start doing what you're proposing.

    I don't know guys. I PM'd with a guy who has been doing manual posting for 8 plus years and has plenty of clients. I'm thinking about trying him out just to see what happens. He wouldn't even be using my account. So all I would be risking is the 10 bucks which I think is worth it just to see if it works. I don't know. We'll see.

    Hello Friend,

    I concur with mainly of the suggestion so distant.... you are risking receiving flagged or specter planned if you start doing what you're suggesting.

    Anytime I've tried anything out of the ordinary with CL my ads have been ghosted. I would forget the automation and find a trustworthy outsourcer at Odesk or Fiverr to manually post or repost your ads.

    Hi,

    I suggest that you look at what Craigslist did. It started very locally and saturated itself with local listings. Then it gradually branches out to other locations, getting saturated with each one. Now it's a global classifieds board as you well know. It's not a bad idea. People aren't going to list or view your classifieds if you don't have an audience or listing traffic. Getting listings from all over the place with an scattered audience isn't enticing at all. Focus on getting your current city using it.If you want a craigslist auto poster then you can try http://craigslistmassemail.wordpress.com/ . Hope this information helps you.

    Craigslist is great, as long as you do not abuse it. Also, you will not want to tarnish your Reputation with them, by using Automated Posting Scripts, as they are getting more stable these days.

    I agree with you. Craigslist is great but if you abuse it things won't work out.
