#5 Unique and fresh ad content
Classified moderators hate those advertiser who post an ad by just copy pasting their ads. It makes their classified site rank lower in search engine results as the ad will be seen as a duplicate ad taken from another site.
For an example, you submit a fresh ad on classified site X and after 5 days you post the same ad on another site, lets say classified site Y.
Now, when the moderator of classified Y sees this ad on their site, he/she will easily get to know ( they use online tools that shows them all this 😉 that this ad is already published on an another site and the ad content is also the same. Most probably your ad is not going to get published and your efforts and time would be lost.

Most of the classified sites care about the duplicate content and they don’t want you to create duplicate ads on their site.
Remedy of duplicate content?
