    There are no special SEO techniques for promoting a classifieds site, use the same SEO methods you would use for any other type of site.

    Also, see if you can get away with posting free ads on other classifieds sites: this is not simply SEO, classifieds users may be looking for other classifieds options, and may start using your new site.

    I hope this helps.

    People usually search like best classified sites lists or top classified sites lists etc. Find some blogs that provide such types of lists, before posting check the pr, authority of the blog, if it is not an authority blog then just put your comment with your site's name or url and don't make it clickable..by this you may get traffic to your site...

    All of the normal link building methods will work for you, but the best thing is to have good onsite optimization.

    Make sure you have your classified setup so that the people posting automatically generate SEO friendly content. Be sure the title tags are relevant with keywords. Is there a way that you can make your posters post with keywords?

    Initially i'd focus on the onsite stuff as that is the most important aspect of a classified site.

    Yeah right, @Dittmoe On page is most impotent on SEO.

    If your will be perfect then you can easily get the rank from off-page activity.

    Guest post is good for SEO but after lettest update of Matt Cutt's, Don't much focus on guest post you may get quality backlinks from web 2.0 sites and forum posting.

    If you have some budget then you can also use PPC service it would more help you to gain more traffic.

    Good Luck...!

    I have heard some of the classified listing sites where you can submit your classified website. if you have some budget than you can promote it with Google adwords and bing ads.
