Craigslist no longer allowing links in the 'For Sale' section?

Posted by Damien Castagnozzi on 11/7/2013
We have been in business since 2008 and we have to thank Craiglist for this. We get about 80% of our traffic from Craiglist.

It looks to be, until now... Craiglist looks like it no longer is accepting to have us put links in our ads. Well, lets be clear, we can put links in our ads, but they are not going to be clickable.

Not to get took tecky, there is a code that they striped away when the ad goes 'live' It doesn't sound like a big deal, people can just cut and past the link to find us - but then again - people are just too lazy to do that.

 What does this mean for Tungsten Fashions? We are not sure, but we have to go out there and hussle to get new leads and we will make it thru this. Craigslist has been a major factor in our success, but they are not the only game in town.

We want to say "Thank You" to Craigslist. Without them, we would not be here.

Bing, Backpage,Google, Yahoo, Ask..... here we come!

This is absurd, we use (or did use) craigslist for our real estate company. There is also Zillow and other sites. Without us there is no craiglist. They need to cut back on thier restrictions and worry about more important things.

IT WORKS on this site This was created by some guy to allow clickable links, works like a charm except the map feature doesn't work. The website is or you can replace the "craigslist" with "cllink" in the address bar on the post you are viewing, you will not notice the difference.

The Hell with Criagslist. I made the mistake of asking a question in the 'forum' and there was nothing but nasty responses and putting you down. Craiglist is over. I dont know if it is the spamers or the the company itself - but if they do not change and back links - who the hell would sell anything on that site? Just look at the trafffic on their site. WAY DOWN! Eff you craigslist. Your done.
