The Tipping point of Exceeding the postingvolume limit on Craigslist


I am getting a lot of emails from readers about craigslistpostings. They are curious to know what we should keep in mind toavoid getting this crazy craigslist error.

“You have exceeded the posting volume limit for thisaccount/email”

So let’s get straight into this..

Craigslist algorithm is coded to discourage spammer from postingquite often. In the past, some users took advantage of craigslistplatform and used automated software to post spam ads oncraigslist.

Craigslist updated their algorithmto capture these type ofusers. They limited the number of ads you can post per dayfrom single craigslist account.

What is the maximum posting limit?

You might hear from self-proclaimed “Craigslist gurus” that youshould only post on ad per day per account. But that’s notthereality. This depends on the health of your account and yourIP.

Majority of my clients post more than 10 ads per day.

How can a big real estate company afford to post singleadper day on Craigslist when they get dozens of homes day in, dayout?

It all boils down to how you can justify your postings? Ageneral rule of thumb is to post no more than 3 ads in 24hours from a single account. Otherwise, you might be introuble.

What to do if your volume”exceeded the posting volume”error?

Wait for minimum 24 hours. So you can get your limit back. Andmake sure you do not post more than 3 ads within 24 hourstime.

If you are still getting the issue. Try posting the same ad froma different account. I have noticed that a lot of users still getthe same message even after waiting for 2 days. That might be aprogramming bug. So it’s better to use another account and postyour ads with wasting any time.
