How To Use Craigslist to Generate Free Traffic to Your Website, Blog or Hub Pages

Updated on June 18, 2011

How To Use Craigslist to Generate Free Traffic to Your Website, Blog or Hub Pages

The Craigslist website can be a powerful tool to generate free traffic to your website, blog or Hub Pages. If you have quality, relevant content aligned with a Craigslist posting, Craigslist visitors will come!

Craigslist specializes in local classified ads, postings & forums and currently serves more than 550 cities in over 50 countries across the globe. Although they charge for some listings, the majority are free.

The Craigslist website is also one of the most popular websites in the world. Internationally it’s in the Top 40 most visited websites. Within the United States it’s in the Top 20 most visited websites. We’re talking millions and millions of visitors each day who could be reading your website, blog or Hub Page.

Here are some tips on how to use Craigslist to generate free, targeted traffic to your website, blog or Hub Pages.

Craigslist Traffic Sources

There are two ways that Craigslist can help drive traffic to your web pages:

First, you can drive traffic from Craigslist visitors who are browsing ads, finding yours and then clicking on your hyperlinks. Per the Craigslist website*, they currently have more than 50 million visitors per month with more than 20 billion page views per month. (*About Us, August 2009)

Second, you can drive traffic via search engines. Craigslist postings, if written appropriately with rich content and keywords, can be very search engine friendly. So, someone using Google and Yahoo could be directed to your ad or listing on Craigslist , and if they click on your hyperlinks- wallah, more traffic.

Abide By The Craigslist Content Rules

Since Craigslist is such an Internet icon, they have to be smart about Craigslist content. So before you post, make sure that you abide by CL's content rules.

→ You should only consider using Craigslist if you have high quality, relevant content to promote.

→ When you write a Craigslist posting, any links provided must match the ad content. In other words, no spamming. If you are flagged as a spammer, Craigslist will remove your listings, ban you from posting future ads, and you may black-list your fellow online writers.

→ You should not post duplicate content- Craigslist knows! It may let you post a similar listing on a few different Craigslist locations, but will then start to block you and you’ll see duplicate content warnings. Even if you change the text, CL can recognize duplicate links. So, choose the Craigslist geographic locations (Ex. Boston versus L.A.) as well as the Craigslist website section (Ex. Forums versus Events) that you think will be the best match to your content.

→ You should read and abide by the Craigslist content rules to ensure that you do not violate any policies. Click here to link to CL's rules of the road.

→ Refrain from excessive postings, which again, may result in removal or blacklisting. You may also want to post under a few different email addresses.

What Craigslist Geo-Local Sites Should You Post In? is a group of separate, geography based sub-sites all linked together under one blanket site. For example, there’s Craigslist Boston, Craigslist L.A. and Craigslist D.C. When visitors go directly to Craigslist they are looking at their local area, not the U.S. or an entire country. And, when you post an ad or listing, you have to pick just one geographic area.

Therefore, before you post, think through the demographics of the population of each Craigslist area and who would be most interested in your website content, product or service. You can also assume that the larger cities have more visitors than smaller ones. And, Craigslist tends to be more popular on the west coast than east coast.

Jamie Robe, wrote an E-book on this topic called “Craigslist for Entrepreneurs” You can read more about his recommendations around Geo Postings via this link.

What Sections of Craigslist Should You Post To?

There are several areas of the Craigslist site that align well to promoting and driving traffic to your website, blog or Hub Page. The area you choose should be tied to the content you want to promote or link to. Here are some examples.

If you are selling seasonal products or have written a blog or Hub Page that has content about a particular holiday or time of year, you could create a listing on the Craigslist “events” section that directs traffic to your web page(s). For example, around New Year’s Eve you could promote limousine services or around Valentine’s Day you could promote Valentine’s Day gift ideas.

The Craigslist “Services” section can work well if you are promoting content about a specific service. The “General” area within the Community area can be used for almost anything, but it’s one the least targeted areas of the site.

The "Discussion Forums", if used wisely, can generate traffic. There are discussions posted on more than 70 topics including autos, beauty, diet, gifts, money and sports. It’s important to remember that most forum visitors are there to chat not read ads, so you may need to participate in a discussion before you include an ad or link in your content. The forum users are quick to flag posters as spammers and you want to avoid being banned.

There are 30 categories within the Craigslist “For Sale” section, from boats to electronics. If your site or web page is selling a specific, relevant product, this area could be a perfect match for traffic generation.

Kathryn Vercillo, a writer based in San Francisco, (the birth place of Craigslist) recently penned a complimentary online article called “How to use Craigslist for Blog promotion” and she provides her own unique views on which sections of Craigslist to use to generate traffic and why they work best.

If you need help posting an ad to Craigslist, visit this “how to” Hub Page for more information.

I can’t stress enough.. Your goal should be choose the site section that best matches the relevant, high quality content you want to promote. This will lead to generating the most traffic.

How To Write A Craigslist Ad To Drive Traffic To Your Web Page

The best Craigslist ads to generate traffic are well written, concise, on the short side (less than 200 words), yet contain enough detailed information and key words to generate interest from both the Craigslist visitors and the Search Engines. Similar to your blogs or Hub Pages, using the right ad title is also very important.

Here is an example of a posting in the events section around Valentine’s Day that directs traffic to a Hub Page article:

Tite: "Valentine's Day For Harley Enthusiasts"

“Valentine's Day is the perfect time to celebrate your love for Harley and your love for your significant other with a Harley Davidson themed Valentine's Day gift. Hub Pages is a great resource for Harley gift ideas.

If you are looking for a Valentine's gift for your Harley Queen:

If you are looking for a Valentine's gift for your Harley King:

These Valentine's Day Gift ideas will save you time and your Harley partner will love them!"

I tested this concept recently with my “Top Ten Things To Do on New Year’s Day” online article and generated about 100 views between the San Francisco and Atlanta Craigslist sites within 48 hours.

“Funnebone”, a free lance writer from Philiadelphia, wrote about his Craigslist success driving traffic to his Hub Pages in the article “Rocketing Your Hub Views Using Craigslist."

Bonus Craigslist Tip!

Create a Craigslist Account. It’s free to join and this will save you time whenever you post a future ad as your personal information, ex. email address, will be saved. Some Craig’s List posters create multiple accounts with multiple email addresses.

Steve Mount, the author of “Cashing in on Craigslist” recommends creating image ads instead of text. The advantage, per Mount, is that you can post identical ads to multiple sections of Craigslist and the website detectives can’t tell that they’re duplicates.

The image must be “clickable” and linked to your web page in order to drive traffic. Mount says that this method allows him to post up to ten ads per day. You can read more about Steve Mount’s book on

You Can Generate Free Traffic With Craigslist!

As described above, the Craigslist website can be a powerful tool to generate free traffic to your website, Hub Pages or blogs. If you have quality, relevant content aligned with a Craigslist posting, Craigslist visitors will come!

I hope these tips help you to drive the MASSIVE web traffic that we all dream about!

      Great tips on Craigs list! It is a powerful site and you list some very good pointers!

      To answer your question Rastamermaid, in my experience - no you don't have to be logged into an account to buy on Craigs list because you are buying from the individual seller. You should be able to reply to to the seller or call the seller directly to set up payment terms.

      I was scratching my head wondering how to promote a hub page on Craigslist, but I think your product based strategy might hold promise. Have things changed on Craigslist since you posted this... do you still use Craigslist to promote your online presence?

      So I have heard there are sites that you can see what city or listings have the best traffic pumping power, but when doing a search for this type of website I found yours at the top of the list. This was very helpful but not completely what I was looking for today.

      Greetings - Thanks for the insightful details on Craigslist. I too have used CL and found the site to be extremely effective when I aggressively promoted something. I've used it recently to drive traffic to a hub I wrote about Frustrated Writers earning money. I was overwhelmed at the boost in traffic all in one week. I'm currently working on some hubs I can run a full CL ad campaign with to drive traffic. It's great when writers like yourself continue to remind us: No matter how good our writing is, we have to promote our work or no one else will ever know it! Thanks again.

    • profile image


      10 years ago

      Another great way to drive traffic is to make your ad actually eye pleasing and to the point. I found this site: It's free to use, no sign up. You can upload up to five pics, which is more than craigslist, plus they are cleaner looking. The site makes your ad into like a webpage automatically and gives you the code to post right to craigslist. I have had great responses from it. Plus you can use a partner site of their's to track your ads for free as well. It's really cool and I noticed a big difference!

      10 years ago from Atlanta, Georgia

      Thanks for the feedback Robert. Glad you found the Craigslist article useful. In answer to your question, what I have found with my hubs is that the ones with the most original and searched on content, have the most natural, free traffic- for the long term.

      For example, my "Personal Experience With Thyroid Cancer" has gotten steady traffic daily from Google and Yahoo with no proactive effort on my part- for six months running.

      When I am proactive, I find blogging on other sites and linking to my hubs tends to drive the most free traffic to my hub pages..

      Wishing you continued web success!

      As an Internet enthusiast doing occasional online writing myself, I'd like to commend your first paragraph. There your first sentence tells what what the hype is about, and your second sentence tells the reader how that advantage is achieved. Good job. I have read so many hubs where half the article reads like a teaser, with the fast-reading visitor getting impatient as he scrolls down.

      I've noticed you've written a lot here about the how-to's of Craigslist. I'm not going to add to that. But how about other free ways of getting traffic? Like article marketing and free ebook distribution? I'd like to hear your thoughts on this, as I'm always on the look out for fresh perspective.

      Good point Prasadjain. For me, I've found that Harley hubs lead to clicks and buys on Amazon. Thanks for the tip!

      Thanks for the useful hub. But, for hubpage earnings, just visiting readers are not enough. They must be clickers.Then only we earn.
