Craigslist is a classified ad website founded in the year 1995 (incorporated 1999) which has its headquarters in San Francisco, US. It serves in about 570 cities in 70 countries.
It’s sections are devoted to housing, job, items which are wanted, for sales and much more. It would astonish you to know about the fact that more than 50 billion pages are viewed per month. The site is spread all over the world expanding its services right from the e-commerce to the furniture wholesalers, and much more.
So, let’s just go through some of the facts about Craigslist. Then I would introduce you to the tool by the help of which you are able to boost up your activities on craigslist.
Moving on to the facts.
People sometimes complain that, when they posted their advertisements, it was not seen online. Will no need to worry about that. It takes some time of about 15-20 minutes to make your post live. If after the initial time delay you are still not able to see your post then it might have been marked as spam and is discarded by the software of Craigslist. This activity is known as Ghosting.
Sometimes, Google is blocking the new craigslist advertisements from the search because it is indexing the new advertisements from around 5pm to 12am PST, then after that it completely de-indexes those advertisements. And Google repeats the process the next day.
As per my view, there are no such advertisements which you can say as fake. As we know that if your post will be spammy it would be blocked by the software itself. But still, the situation is there when the post is not updated and also when something is already sold, people do not remove the advertisements from the page. If consider this situation then you might say that out of 10, 9 must be the fake one. It totally depends on you how would you define the term fake.
Now let’s move on to the tool which can help you in your boost up. The tool is CraigsDominator. This tool has various features which can help you in your activities.
