I have to agree that the best way to get any sort of traffic from Craig's List is to join its forum. Once you do, treat it like you do any other forum. Try to find niche oriented threads and comment on them. CL is mainly known as an "online garage sale", so a lot of the people I know that use it, concentrate on the forum. Other than that they really do not find much use to it. Personally I have never used it. Who knows, maybe in the future.
I thought you didn't believe that it will help with promoting your own site, now you're agreeing with me? You're confusing me.
But anyway, yeah just like what I said, joining forums in Craigslist is one way to help you get traffic out of that site, by placing your website URL to your signature in the forum and interacting with other members of CL.
