How to Post Multiple Ads on Craigslist Without Getting Flagged

Posted at June 7, 2021 3:43 am by proadmin

Some businesses may need to post multiple ads on Craigslist. However, Craigslist does not allow duplicate ads posted from one account in the same city or category. You can only post one ad in one category or cites from your location or IP address. If you want to post the same ad in different cities, you may need the residential IPs and another computer to post this ad.

What is allowed and what is not?

When posting ads in different cities, it is vital to ensure that the content of each ad is unique to that particular location. However, you can use the same advertisement pictures for all the cities. Create a title and content variation for each city you want to cover. You can use one account per city and ad variations to post multiple ads. If you post multiple ads in the same or different categories on one account, you must wait at least 48 hours from the last post. Repeated or excessive ads from one account to the same category or city will not stay on the website.

Dos and Don’ts for Multiple Ads.

Let’s create a table for posting frequency to understand these terms:

Don’t post the same ads in multiple cities or categories. Posting multiple ads from the same category or city is against Craigslist’s terms and keeps the community clean and spam-free.You can create ad variations and use different content, local IPs, and another computer/browser profile to post ads in the same category or city.
Don’t post multiple ads in different categories from the same city within 48 hours from one account.Multiple ads from one location to other categories are allowed on one account. But you must wait at least 48 hours to post the second ad.
Don’t use the same computer, IP, or browser profile to post on multiple accounts. If you use multiple accounts from the same location, IP, or browser profile, Craigslist will automatically flag all your accounts.Craigslist allows only one account to post from a computer/browser profile/IP address to keep their community clean. So, you can use one Craigslist account per computer, IP, or browser profile.  
Do or don’t when posting multiple ads on Craigslist.

You may understand Craigslist’s posting policy for multiple categories and cities from the upper table. You can post only one ad per category per account from one IP location within 48 hours. If you want to post more than one ad in the same category, use different content, titles, and pictures. And wait at least 48 hours to post the second ad. If you want to publish your ads in multiple cities, use another account, local IP, and different computer/browser profiles. Craigslist can detect browser fingerprinting to eliminate various accounts using the same computer. They believe in one account per person, so you must abide by this rule.
