Press Release Summary: CraigsList offers the highest response rate and here are some
other Free resources to use also.

Press Release Body: Millions of people use Craigslist every day and
if you can tap into this massive market your
website will receive great deal of internet traffic.

But the best part is that people who are browsing Craigslist are already in buying
mode, so if you offer any kind or product or service you can expect a conversion
rate higher than usual.

What exactly is Craigslist?

Imagine a huge online flea market where people
from all over the world offer their goods and
services to the public. There are people selling
everything from designer shoes to real estate.

Most ads can be posted for free, however Craigslist does charge a $25 fee for
employment ads in 5 major cities.

There sites are broken down into regions and you can place your ads in any state,
city, or country you want. Of course, you don\'t have to limit yourself to
advertising only in your own local region. You can post an ad in San Francisco,
Baltimore, Ohio, Italy, Japan, or anywhere else in the world with just a few clicks
of your mouse.

Most ads stay active for 45 days, but you can go
back and repeat your ads over and over again to
maintain your presence on the site.

But the real flood of traffic from Craigslist
won\'t come from people browsing the listings.
It will come from Google.

Google absolutely loves Craiglist, and it\'s
common for Craigslist ads to achieve a top
ranking in a week or less.

Once that happens, your ad will see some serious
traffic. If you craft your ad properly, all that
traffic will be directed right to your website.

To make sure your ads rank well in the search
engine listings you should use the same SEO
methods you use for your own site. Optimize
your ads for your keywords just as you would
your web pages.

Are there other classifieds sites besides Craigslist?

Sure there are. None can even come close to
Craigslist in terms of traffic generation, but
that doesn\'t mean you shouldn\'t use them to
supplement your Craigslist traffic. Here are
a few more sites that let you post ads for free:

Yahoo Classifieds
