Ah, the fun of reposting is taken out of craigslist! Finally! With the the new "renew" feature on CL you don't have to repost after a 7 day period anymore. Every 2 days now you can renew your current postings which will move them to the top of the list of your personal posting list and to the top of the list for the designated location your item is posted on. I have been using this feature for over 2 weeks now and it is a great new feature and it saves you a ton of time. You can renew your 2 day old postings with a few clicks of your mouse and unlike the old style of reposting a bulk amount of 7 day old expired postings that have completely been taken off of craigslist, you can renew as fast as you possibly can. Remember when you had to repost all of those ads you put out 7 days ago and craigslist would stop you in the middle of your reposting, notifying you that you are reposting to fast and then with out warning, you would have to sit and wait for a couple of minutes to even half an hour before it allows you continue reposting....UGH!!! This was one of the most time consuming parts of using craigslist and very frustrating. Almost as time consuming as posting a brand new ad. With this renew feature I haven't had to go threw that anymore and you won't either if you use this to your advantage. Simply scroll down your personal page of listings and find your postings with the renew option to the left of the title description of your posting. Now do not click on renew. Right click on your title description and open it on a new tab. Do this for 5 postings at a time before you go to the new tabs you just opened. Then simply go to each new tab you opened that needs to be renewed and click "renew" and Presto! Your ad is renewed! Once you have completely renewed all of the qualified postings, reload your personal page listings and go to the top and there you will see all of the renewed postings at the top of your ad list as if you just reposted them. They are officially brand new listings that will appear at the top of the craigslist inventory of listings as well. Allow for 5-10 minutes to pass before you check to see for yourself. Now like I have said this feature is brand new and I have been using it for 2 weeks now and I haven't had to repost once, so if that changes I will let you know or you can let me know yourself. Good luck and CL Happy Sales!
