The word “free” in free advertising platforms doesn’t necessary mean you are at liberty to post whatever you want to, anytime, anyhow. There are restrictions and unless you understand the pros and cons of Craigslist Flagging Services, you will definitely be getting a poor return on your investment. A lot of people are abusing the privilege of Craigslist and consequently, it’s not surprising to find overtly stupid adverts posted by users.
Having your ads flagged or out rightly deleted within minutes is not the only problem with promoting your product or services on Craigslist. Even when your ad sticks, you still face the battle of maintaining a top spot on the website. Hundreds of new ads are posted every minute on the website, making the chances of your post surviving being buried by new ads a herculean task. Although Craigslist allows you the opportunity of renewing your ad every 48 hours, just so you can manage to hit the top spot once more. It means you have to keep posting the ad until the 30-day ad life span expires.
♣ Navigate your Web browser to the website by typing the domain name Craigslist.org.
♣ Search and locate the posting you want to flag. Click on the link to the posting to view the posting in full
♣ In the upper-right corner of the Web page, you will find the flag options box. The box is located right under the “Email This Posting to a Friend” link.
♣ If the post is in the wrong category of the site then click the “Miscategorized” flag link. If the content is in contrast with the theme of the category you find the ad in, you can do the same thing.
♣ Click the “Spam/Overpost” flag option if the ad appears too frequently on the website. If it the ad appears in multiple locations or categories, or if the ad is directly too commercial.
