Default post your Craigslist Ads please

Can you guys please post your ads for craigslist as a guide if you would? Are they in html or what? Just trying to get ideas on what to include and how.

Thanks, Jeff

For anyone interested you can go to http://www.deliverysuccess.com/ and create a free HTML ad for Craigslist. They do have costume ads available also for $30 but there free ones work just as well.

You can put your own logo and info in the templates that they have and change them around. There HTML creator is a lot like using Front Page or Word and is very easy to use. They even let you store your ads so you can use them again. Once you have created your ad then you simply copy the HTML code and paste it in Craigslist. I have had great success with there ads.

That means that the CL bots that peruse CL didn't like something about the ad and so they automatically removed it. I believe that while pics and links are okay in the Services section of CL, something about a clickable link in a picture is not kosher with CL.

There's also the remote possibility that someone doesn't like us on CL and so they spam flagged the ad until it was removed. But they don't flag the text ad so I don't think that's the case.
