Online classified may be used to build one-way link popularity. In some cases, they may net you actual traffic.
You need to be really choosy with classifieds, though. Many of the free sites are junk, and your ad won’t be read.
Instead, I’d recommend placing classifieds in online versions of newsletters/ezines any targeted, content heavy sites that are set up to resemble a magazine. Double check, though, that their classifieds section (if any) appears well-organized and up-to-date.
It’s also better if they charge a fee for placement, as this limits the freebie advertisers from cluttering up the listings.
Remember: any classified you place should a be a “teaser” – in other words, when you write your ad copy, think of it as an extended version of, say, the type of ad you might write for Google Adwords.
You’re not making the pitch here, just compelling people to click on your link.
