I did a post a while back about backpage back-linking. This is the same strategy. Craigslist has a real estate SERVICES dept. much like Backpage.com. This is a great place to create custom search titles such as "The Best Daleville AL Real Estate Agent" then talk about what you do, why you do it and put lots of links and property search info back to your website.
Thanks Gabrielle - This is really a gem!!
Your Back Linking Strategy & Craig’s List
For your back link strategy on Craig’s List, you ought to post ads in other areas of Craig’s List, but these ads shouldn’t be your listings. For instance, you should regularly post ads to the Real Estate Services section. Be creative with the content you post here. For instance, if you have a blog, you could include an excerpt of an article here with a link to the whole article on your blog. You could try doing a cross-post wherein you describe your services and at the end mention you have a new listing and provide the link to your ad in the Real Estate For Sale section. If you have webinars or in-person seminars, be sure to advertise them here. Be sure to put up ads in the Real Estate Jobs section for various jobs, even if you have no intention of hiring such people at the moment. If and when you do need someone for any of those jobs, you’ll have loads of resumes on hand, so you’re hiring process will be much quicker.
Note if you try posting anything but a listing in the Real Estate Section For Sale area, it will get removed very quickly. Another democratic aspect of Craig’s List is allowing users to flag posts that break the rules, and multiple flags will get your ad deleted.
