Craigslist Established in 1995 by Craig Newmark, Craigslist (www.craigslist.org) is the most widely used and visited local classified advertising website online with over 80 million new classifieds, nearly 50 million unique US visitors and 20 billion global page views each month. Especially popular in the U.S., Craigslist also provides online classifieds for 50 other countries totaling 700 localities worldwide.

Due to Craigslist being free to post on (besides the Jobs category in certain Cities), its broad reach and the good response rate that posting ads on Craigslist typically provides, many online marketers and local businesses have abused Craigslist's terms of service with mass local and non local postings. In Craigslist's constant attempt to keep their ads local and spam/scam free they have taken several measures other then their long standing user moderated (flagging) system including most categories requiring PVA's (phone verified accounts) inorder to post, geo blocking, mass IP blocks, ghosting and several other ongoing measures to keep spammers at bay. Craigslists current terms of service allow for posting 1 classified ad in 1 locality and category every 48 hours and they do not allow the use of Posting Services or Posting Software to post ads to their site. Even with the strict posting regulations for posting on Craigslist, businesses can still effectively generate local leads by posting on Craigslist within the terms of service.
