2Copy and paste the tracking code into your craigslist posting body
Post on craigslist
Use text, buttons or images as your click action.
Buttons and images tend to drive more clicks.
3Craigsvue will start tracking after your ad is submitted
- You'll know when the ad is viewed
- When they click the button (or link, or image) inside
- And when they submit an application
Maximize applicants with our built-in application forms
If you simply ask for resumes or provide a phone number to call in your Craigslist job ads, you may receive hundreds to thousands of them that you have to manually sort through.
This can be quite overwhelming and painful.
The best approach is to use a job application form that allows you to gather information from applicants in bits so you can sort and compare them easily to find the candidates that fit best.
This form covers essential personal data and information to help make a hiring decision.
Verify Applicant Contact Info
You can also break down your application form into multiple steps that require applicants to jump through a few hoops in order to apply.
This will help weed out the unqualified candidates and encourage the most qualified and diligent people to apply.
The weeding out process can be as simple as automatic phone and email verifications where applicants
are required to verify their contact info before they can submit an application.
Everything about Craigsvue is a benefit for creating dynamic and effective Craigslist Recruiting ads. From the use of "image" links to the stats, the trackers set us apart from the competition. I went from 0 to 100 in 30 days with Craigsvue and wouldn't market without it. Great ROI!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
1How many craigslist accounts are allowed? We do not limit you by the number of craigslist accounts.
But you'll need to choose a pricing plan based on the number of jobs posted from however many CL accounts
2Can I use 1 tracker in multiple job postings?
We highly recommed you create a unique tracker for each job to make it easy to understand the tracking reports and metrics. For instance, you could post the same job positions but with different posting titles
in order to see which one attracts the most clicks and applicants. If you were to use the same tracking code in each job posted, it would be hard to tell them apart when looking at the reports. But using unique trackers will make comparing results much easier.
3Can I track other posting categories on craigslist?
Unfortunately craigslist only allows html links used in tracking in the paid job posting categories and it won't work in other areas of the site.
4Can I track other jobs posted on other websites?
Yes you may use our trackers on other posting sites as long as the site allows you to post html links.
