Don't know if this will help anyone starting out but having a new Classifieds site can look a bit empty unless you post a few Classifieds yourself and that only helps a tiny bit.

I recently moved my site to wp and started a Classifieds section but it looks pretty empty so I decided to use RSS feeds combined with affiliate links.

While not perfect (you still have empty categories) you can import feeds to the main pages and hide empty cats until they start to get used.

I am an affilate with ebay, preloved and amazon so I go grab an rss feed and import using FEEDZY or similar and then at least you have some good looking ads and people may hang around a bit longer the bonus being of course if one of those feeds take their fancy you get paid.

Hope that thid is ok to post and that it helps

Hi Mark!

Thanks for the hot tips--yes, we've mentioned this in responses a few times, but it's worth posting again.
