Description: The following article mainly has the topic about craigslist login. If you have ever had your Craigslist advertisement flagged, you know how upsetting it can be especially after spending a half an hour creating it only to have it remain up for less than 10 minutes.
This is Troy Ross with the Richmond real estate investors association, this article is about Craigslist, I’ve got a question for you, how many times have you posted an advertisement on Craigslist but when you come back later on, it’s been flagged?
It is disturbing situation, you spent that time, you put the advertisement together, somebody felt like that it didn’t need to be there, we have a neat little trick that can combat the advertisement police, first let me give you a little bit of background.
I’ve learned that Craigslist uses a algorithm, it’s a bit complex which takes into consideration the number of advertisement views that results in a flag, for instance if only a few people go to your advertisement page and view it, let’s say three to five, each of those viewings results in a flag.
Craigslist thinks that your advertisement is either spam or it’s been improperly placed, they flag it, so it’s gone, however if your advertisement is viewed many times with no flags, Craigslist believes that your advertisement must be legitimate and will allow it to remain regardless of any number of future flags.
The idea is to try to jump the gun and beat the flag police by viewing your advertisement several times before it’s seen, we’re going to show you how you can do this, here is an advertisement that I put together, I’m getting ready to post it, I’m going to click continue.
Craigslist is going to respond to this hopefully within the next few seconds, your posting can be seen, you’re going to see the web address, you probably noticed this before, your advertisement doesn’t show up in the list immediately as soon as you post this.
It says that your posting can be seen at this web address, go back to Craigslist, I’m looking underneath Richmond Craigslist housing real estate by owner, it’s not going to be there yet which is a good thing, while we see this up, we need to right click and open a new tab, we want to do this for about 10 or 15 times.
This is telling Craigslist that somebody’s looking at this advertisement, but they are not flagging it, you do about 10 or 15 times of opening it, it seems to work, ever since I’ve used this trick, it never had a problem, I’ve never had a flag, I’ve been using this trick for about a month.
The one thing that I want to note is that it seems that Craigslist is not looking at the IP address that’s pulling up the advertisement, it’s looking at the advertisement being pulled up and checking to see whether or not it’s being flagged.
As long as your advertisement is not being flagged, you’re not flagging it, you’re pulling it up to view it, after several times it’s going to realize that the advertisements must be legitimate, it remains, try this trick, good luck to you, I hope that it works for you.
