Just hours before, I hosted a teleseminar with Nancy Mills of The Spirited Woman website, who has been using Craigslist as a valuable publicity tool to promote her in-person events and teleseminars with famous woman authors, actresses and editors. Nancy says that when she has posted events to Craigslist, she has been able to track 90 percent of her business as having come from the list.
I didn’t realize it during the teleseminar, but here’s one more huge reason to use Craigslist in your PR campaign. Google gives Craigslist a page ranking of 8 out of a possible 10. Few websites have that high a ranking.
What does that mean to you? Google gives more weight to your website if other sites with a high page ranking link to you.
Yesterday’s teleseminar is available as a CD or electronic transcript here.
If you’re using Craigslist as a publicity tool, tell us what you’re doing, and the results.
