How to Post Multiple Ads on Craigslist in the Same or Different Cites
Some businesses may need to post multiple ads on craigslist. But, multiple ads posting from one account in the same city or category are not allowed on Craigslist. 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
Same ad pictures are allowed to post in multiple cities, but you can’t use the same ad contents. Create the Title and content variation for each city you want to cover. You can use one account per city and ad variation to post multiple ads. If you post multiple ads in the same or different categories from one account, you need to 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.
Do and Don’t for Multiple Ads.
Let’s create a table for posting frequency form better understand these terms:
|Don’t Post Same Ads in Multiple City or Category. 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 Contents, 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 different categories are allowed from one account. But you have to wait at least 48 hours to post the second ad.|
|Don’t use the same computer/IP/Browser profile to post on multiple accounts. If you use multiple accounts from the same location/IP/Browser profile, Craigslist will automatically flag all of 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/Browser profile.|
So, from the upper table, you may understand the posting policy of craigslist for multiple categories and cities. 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 to do this. Craigslist can detect browser fingerprinting to eliminate more than one account usage from the same computer. They believe in one account per person, so you must abide by this rule.
