    Is the multiple posting of an ad acceptable or considered cheap?

    Don't know if this discussion ever came up. Would a hobbyist tend to be more attracted to an ad that has been posted multiple times throughout the day or is it considered a turnoff. Wouldn't it send negative signals to the customer?

    wiki-robinx could probably tell us if this discussion's ever appeared before. oh robin!!??

    multiple ad postings are somewhat cheesy but if it's from a respected agency, indy, etc... i doubt it matters too much.

    What I do when I log in is hit the "New Posts" button. The more recently an agency has posted, the easier it is for me to see their lineup for the day. I welcome their multiple posts. To me, it's a sign of attention to detail and, hence, sends me a positive signal. And, don't forget, they are limited to three posts per day.

    Thanks for your input. I'm talking about ads in 123 or Jaysx. I see some are posted 5 , 6 times the same day. Indies I noticed more of.

    In that case, I'd think it's a sign of too much time on their hands. Not a good sign at all.

    from experience, the best hidden gems only have one or two ads..and they are well hidden in between all that junk.
    i personally hate multi-ad posters..usually its a red flag that they suck, and not in a deepthroating kind of way.

    The worse multi postings are the ones that put 3 or 4 identical ads one after the other.

    The way I see it, if it posted four and five or six times on 123 of Jaysx, the service could be lacking. I don't get on either one very much mainly due to my lack of ability to read or speak French, or the need for a completely independent SP. In other cities, my experience with independents who advertise on these types of media, is not good. I prefer using agencies, and find the practice of reposting their ads three times here on MERB completely acceptable.

    but u have to admit the multiple posting (3 or more daily) are eye catching and make you look so that end goal for someone posting. mission accomplished.
