50StatesClassifieds is a North American based company,
servicing the USA. All goods and services must be
both originating from, and directed towards, that market, and all verbiage
must be in US English. Based on this
focus, we will not accept, and actively deny, services and goods that
originate from outside the servicing area unless we feel it is of special interest to users in the 50 United States. We thank you for your consideration
of this when posting your ad.
These terms are subject to change at any time,
If you belong to an MLM or affiliate program, please follow this important guideline:
A huge number of affiliates visit our site each day and post multiple identical ads in multiple states for the same exact business. You are most likely not the only affiliate from your company posting here. We do not want every single category in every single state filled with endless pages of identical copy-paste affiliate ads for the same 10 companies. We consider it spam.
If you sell Avon in Louisiana, ONLY post in Louisiana. If you are an affiliate who sells candles in Oregon, ONLY post in Oregon. Do not attempt to post 50 identical ads if you have not paid for the upgrade which allows you to do so.
Please, follow the rules, or your entire MLM or affiliate program will be permanently banned as a time saving measure.

load on our infrastructure; (ii) interfere or attempt to interfere

the Site; or (iii) bypass any measures we may use to prevent or restrict
access to the Site;
Common reasons that we deny ads and/or terminate user accounts include, but
are not limited to:
- Entering false contact information during the User Registration
process. We do not share this information with any third party, nor do we
use it for anything on our end, but we ban any user who has filled in gibberish, swear words, or other
rude / fake / offensive information.
- Duplicate accounts, or similar registration information to that which
has been previously entered by other users is prohibited. If you contact us ahead of time and ask permission, we can certainly consider giving you duplicate accounts if there is a good reason. But if we find 15 identical free accounts posting identical free ads without asking permission first, we will delete them and ban the company from posting in the future. So please, contact us first if you anticipate needing more than one account, and let us know that you're not just another automated spam-bot, and we'll be happy to accommodate your needs as long as your ads conform to this terms of service.
- Duplicate ads. As a Free
user, you are limited to a few ads of similar (but
not identical) content. Featured Members
do not have this restriction.
- Posting a website URL or link in the title of an ad.
- Multiple external links
per ad and linkspamming. One website reference per ad, please. There are clearly labelled areas where you may post your links in each ad.
- Hidden text of any kind
(clear text, html hiding, color masking, keyword stuffing to the point of it just being a big spammy list of unappealing and intentionally misspelled gibberish, and all other SEO no-no's. A little SEO is fine - we don't mind - but there is a big difference between a respectable amount of SEO, and a disrespectful amount of spam.)
- CAPS LOCK / SHOUTING - If you notice that you are typing in capital letters only, on the left side of your keyboard, press the Caps Lock key to turn your caps off.
- Any business opportunities
originating from outside North America.
- Misleading ads - Be up front and honest in your descriptions of your products or services. Do not force people to give you their email address, phone number, credit card number, or other personal information, in order to simply find out what your "fabulous business opportunity of a lifetime" is. If there is no way to tell what specific product or service you're selling, we will delete it.
- Cash Gifting, Pyramid Schemes, Ponzi Schemes, Online Surveys, Secret Shoppers, win a free laptop/ipod/ipad/iphone/etc, and all other similar scams
- Illegal products as determined
by current local and federal laws. You are required to comply with the
law in your city and state. It is not our responsibility to know every single law in every
single city, state, and county. You are solely responsible
for checking the lawfulness of your listing..
- Profanity, sexual or
pornographic content, graphic photographs or descriptions of violent
acts, or any other content which may disturb
sensitive viewers and children is absolutely prohibited.
- Materials or content
which promote hate, discrimination, or intolerance of any kind
- Please, be respectful of all people regardless of race, religion,
sexual orientation, physical ability, viewpoints, etc.
- Any material which violates
copyright laws, or information which violates the rights or privacy
of any 3rd party.
- Personal identity information
of any party other than your business or your self. (home addresses
and phone numbers which do not belong to you must never be
shared, but we also caution you against sharing your own personal information
on the Internet. It's a big world and there are a lot of strange
people out there. Be careful!)
- We may modify this document
to include new terms at any time. It is your responsibility to check
this space and stay up to date with the rules.
We do not allow ads for Loans, Credit Repair, Home Loan Modification, or any related industries, for the simple reason that it is a high-scam industry, there are too many of these companies trying to post for free, and as a free website who is trying to keep our overhead down, we have no time to research every single company that tries to post an ad.
Each free basic classified ad includes: easy ad editor to help
you make an attractive ad, 1 free picture, links may be posted in clearly designated areas of your ad, a free
counter to track your visitors, and a public profile page which you can
use to describe your seller policies, your business, etc.
We also offer very affordable upgrades to make your ad stand out! Register for an account for more information.
We hand screen each and every ad before it is approved for quality control. If you see spam
on our site which has somehow snuck by (perhaps our
hand slipped, or the ad was particularly convincing, or we've just never ran into that type of scam before), please let us know! Send the Ad# of the ad you feel is
spam to email@example.com
Duplicate free ads will
be deleted. Please do not spam us
by posting identical free ads in every state without explicit prior permission from one of our staff. We do allow multiple free ads per user, as long as they are unique and meet all of our guidelines. I
