This is a simple how to guide for our free classified advertising site. We see hundreds of free classified ads every day and only a handful of free classifieds actually get online. This manual explains each process for submitting a free classified ad at CMather and getting the most out of your free classified advertisement.

Classified Title:
This is the most important part of the classified ad and needs to be short and to the point. Use your best keywords to describe your item, product or services. Try and grab the attention of the user at the same time thinking about the search engine ramifications of your listing. Bad example of a title: “Make Money” “Get rich fast” “Work at home” These titles are a waste of time and will see your classified ad skipped by the viewer and most popular search engines and directories. Keywords to avoid: money, data, work, home, mlm, rich, quick, free, $$$.
