Is it possible to bump your Craigslist ad?

If so, then how?

Nope.

Best you can do is delete and remake with a slightly different title/content so that it doesn't get bounced back as a duplicate.

YES, there is. You just cancel the ad weekly and then re-list it......easy. The only hassle is you need to download your pix again as re-listing saves your original verbage but does not save your pix.

Host your own pics and link to it. Then you can save your listing in a .txt file and cut and paste at will

isn't the relist period like three days, not a week? that's what I remember from last time i did a CL ad. Keep in mind if you're obviously listing the same thing different ways people might flag your ads for removal.

Nash, I've re-listed things several month's later . Once a week and nobody will complain.

when you delete your ad, craigslist will prompt you with
an "are you sure you want to delete, please note, if you
decide to repost, you must wait 24 hours"

or something like that.

I've written two different ads for the same thing for the boston craigs list and the NH craigslist - the states are quite close and in easy proximity for cross polination so I write up two ads with varying descriptoins and a different title.
You can also deal with a couple email addresses if you like to reduce the matching problems you can get.

Example of html command syntax for self-hosting :

<IMG SRC="http://webpages.charter.net/rmweb/Ibanez-TS-9.jpg">

It also let's you publish much better quality pictures in your ad.

Bunch of n00bs here.

Create a craigslist account. The minimum time is 48 hours before you can repost and bump to the top. Once you've listed the ad will show in your my account page, when 48 hours have passed, then hit "delete posting". Go back to your main account page and click on the now-deleted posting, then it gives you the option "repost this posting" and it has the same text/pics and everything. Takes 2 seconds to repost and bump back up.
