but before I do that, I want to able to track my traffic from Craigslist and see which posting give me the most traffic, so I wanna use a free tool called budurl

I wanna got to 
www.budurl.com and sign up for an account it will give you some paid option or free option, the free option gives you 250 budurl it doesn't give you all the tracking and analysis you might want, but start with a free version. so after getting your account, click on my budurl and click on add new budurl

now, create a new budurl, I will just put in my actual url 
http://www.fastwaystoearnmoney.com, I can customize the Alias for the budurl if I want too,  I can put in a note, okay let me just put in Craigslist  San Diego and click save.

it would now give me the actual budurl like http://budurl.me/8k4n I will just copy that. let me now go back to Craigslist and put my budurl link including the image I want to use, like this below, you can add an image without using any Html code, but you have to hit the continue link to see that page.

Traffic To Your Website

Traffic To Your Website

After posting your ads just leave that account for 7 days, and create a new one after 7 days.

Now, there are couple key things on Craigslist, Craigslist doesn't like you posting a lot of the same ads, but you can post the same ads to different city per day but to do that you have to get around the system, because their system will recognize duplicate, you wouldn't to do that because they will not accept them.

to post to different city per day on Craigslist, make sure to change the budurl and the link to your image, make sure to use different headline because you can't use it in the same week, but you can use the same headline after creating your new account in the next 7 days, you can also use different banner it work best. but if you like you can use the same banner, just make sure the link is changing.


that is my tricks of getting massive traffic from Craigslist and I hope you guys got some idea fro this, more tips coming up.....
