Residential IPs Proxy Network for Craigslist Scraping

Get started

We can`t deny the fact that Craigslist is a very popular and powerful website. Since its foundation in 1995, it has helped a great number of people who needed to post classified ads for different products and services.

To illustrate how important Craigslist is, it should be mentioned that this website is available in over 70 countries and offered in 6 languages. Also, it has more than 20 billion page views each month, which makes it one of the most visited sites in the world.

However, with great popularity comes great power that Craigslist uses to filter and block ads based on different criteria.

Why Are You Blocked From Craigslist?

In essence, there are three main reasons that could get you blocked from Craigslist: ghosting, geoblocking, and scraping.


Ghosting is very ambiguous and you can’t always say when it has happened. Once you post an ad on this website, it can tell you that your post has been allowed, and you will receive a post ID and a URL that works perfectly fine. But this is actually a trick because you are the only one who can see the post. In other words, your ad will never appear as a regular post. Craigslist will usually do this if it doubts the legitimacy of your post, trying to avoid sketchy ads that used to be very popular on the website.


Craigslist easily identifies your geographical location and decides whether to allow your post based on it. The Craigslist website server does this on multiple geographical levels, such as the country, state, and city levels. This means that your post needs to match the location of your IP address. In other words, if you live in Boston, Massachusetts, you are not allowed to post an ad for Phoenix, Arizona. Moreover, sometimes you can’t even post for a different town within the same state.


When using a scraper to retrieve data from Craigslist, its website server will recognize that your requests are not being made by a human. But why? ‒ you ask yourself. Because a scraper sends a high number of requests at a speed that no human can match. When the Craigslist server detects this, it will block your IP without any hesitation. Luckily, you can easily solve all of these problems with proxies for Craigslist posting.
