Many of these sites have programs where other websites run their feeds. This gives you quite a bit more exposure.

23. http://www.sell.com - They have been running online classifieds since 1999. Their advertising engine has been used by big business directories such as AT&T’s YELLOWPAGES.com, newspapers such as the San Francisco Chronicle, and niche online properties such as sellhomes.com. Sell.com is a part of a network of advertising properties. Again, if you advertise on many of these sites your ad will simultaneously run on thousands of other partner sites.

25. http://www.webclassifieds.us - Well designed board with a .us domain name. 

Even though these sites are great for marketing, it'll take quite awhile for you to post your ad to each one. This can be a very time consuming task, you may be interested in a Classified Ad Submission Service like the one I use, Classified Submissions. They will automatically submit your ad to over 500,000 ad sites monthly including search engines, classified ad sites, message boards and more.

Feel free to post comments or questions. Also you can add your favorite classified site if you'd like to share.
