Marketing and Google
The Craigslist clone script will ensure that Google and other search engines index the ads on your site as quickly as possible. The script has been developed with SEO (Search Engine Optimization) in mind so that ad pages show up in Googles results with appropriate page titles making it likely that your sites pages will be found even if users have never visited the site before.
Happy Customers - No registration required
One way to drive away customers is to force them to go through a long registration process before they can take an action on your site. This script solves that problem by allowing clients to post with no registration at all. This feature alone can make the difference in having a highly successful classified ads site. Craigslist pionered this idea but unfortunately many software packages have not yet implemented it and loose thousands of customers as a result.
