In the past several weeks there have been a lot of unannounced changes in what types of ads Craigslist will allow. It is a FREE service, and their choice to not give any information or guidelines out. We can only react based on trial and error.
Please keep in mind that these changes are not happening with MotorLot. You pay us to help market to the Craigslist service, but we can only work with what we are given.
Craigslist typially makes small changes without warning. And every year they seem to come in with one big nuke that changes things completely. Most likely this latest adjustment is a result of too much spam. Usually along with those big changes, they tighten up on what is allowed to post. As of April, 2013 there is simply less flexibility than there was before. We expect that things will gradually open back up.
Cleaner search results benefits everyone. Easier for customers to search through and more coverage of the ads you do post.
We’ll keep a list of updates on this page until things calm down.
– We’ve had to remove IMG (image based ads completely). As a results we can’t track ad status, view or clicks.
– We’ve replaced IMG ads with text based ads. The benefit is that the ads will come up more often in search results simply because there is more content to search.
– You can view all of your live TEXT based ads by simply searching for your dealership name on Craigslist.
– KEEPING ADS LIVE There is no rhyme or reason to what they are flagging. Around late afternoon their bot goes in and flags vehicles for deletion. Typically they go after ads with links. It seems the more basic the ad the higher the chance of it sticking. We’ll continue to adjust with the goal of having every ad stick.
– MAKE SURE to match up the Craigslist login email that you are logged in with on the Craigslist site with what you have set as the Craigslist posting email under Settings -> Partner settings.
– Continue to randomize titles and content to create a unique ad each time.
– USE THE RENEWAL FEATURE. Once an ad does go live you can renew them with no penalty as frequent as every few days. This is a great way to push your inventory to the top of the list.
We don’t offer mass downloading of files at this time. Data from each section of the app can be exported via CSV, XML or JSON to easily get your data in and out of MotorLot.
