The Best Backpage And Craigslist Personals Alternatives For 2019!

backpage
Backpage seizure has perhaps been the most controversial event on the internet for a few years. The people concerned with it are facing issues and will be facing them for a long time. A FBI Banner pops up when you visit Backpage which states "Backpage and affiliated websites have been seized as part of an enforcement action."
Backpage
President Trump signed into law a set of controversial bills intended to make it easier to cut down on illegal sex trafficking online. Both bills — the House bill known as FOSTA, the Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act, and the Senate bill, SESTA, the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act. These boht have been hailed by advocates as a victory for sex trafficking victims. US Senate passed a bill to fight online sex trafficking, which subjects websites to more criminal and civil liability for the content that third parties publish on their platforms. The most affected was Backpage. Back page was very popular throughout the globe and the services of back page were widely used. Backpage New Orleans was quite a rage. After the seizure, it was just panic out there with too much noise for back page users.


To add fuel to fire, Craigslist decided to remove its craigslist personals section, posting the following statement: "Any tool or service can be misused. We can't take such risk without jeopardizing all our other services, so we are regretfully taking craigslist personals offline. While Craigslist was popular throughout the globe like back page, craigslist Wichita and craigslist New Orleans were affected the most from this ordeal.

The absence of Backpage and Craigslist Personals created a void in the market and people were all over the World Wide Web to find a replacement to Backpage and Craigslist. Google was filled with queries like “craigslist wichita”, “craigslist new orleans”, “backpage new orleans”. Many sites were created to take advantage of this hype and create so-called “Back page alternatives”. While most of them are out there just for money, there are few who provide genuine services to the users. We here at BacklinksGuy have tested around 50+ sites which claim to be Backpage alternatives and have listed these 5 to be the best for Back page and Craigslist Personals users.

6. AltBackpage (Recommendation Level: High)

backpage alternatives

Altbackpage is the newest in the race to crown itself as the backpage alternative. Our review suggests that it has everything to be the best Backpage alternative in the webworld. The one thing that will strike you first is the clean UI that the website sports. The one thing that all Backpage and Craigslist personals users will appreciate is the complete avoidance of spam.

This newset site is the BEST Backpage replacement at the moment. The client base of AltBackpage is expanding constantly with numerous known faces for you if you previously held a Backpage account. With new clients coming along, it is soon going to lead the market for classified sites.

5. YesBackpage (Recommendation Level: Low)

Back page

As the name suggest, Yesbackpage is a blatant Backpage copy. I won’t even name it as an alternative. But if you’re looking for an alternative than it works well like that too. Like Backpage and Craigslist Personals, Yesbackpage is unfiltered too. It has generally covered most of the users from Craigslist Wichita and Craigslist New Orleans. While it works well as back page alternative it has also captured a wide user base of Craigslist Personals. Yesbackpage is still new and contains lots of bugs too. One of them is that if we navigate into a city, it’s hard to return to the homepage. These are one of the many issues we faced while using this backpage replacement.

4. Bedpage (Recommendation Level: High)

If you’re looking for a straight up Backpage replacement than Bedpage will work the best for you. Like Backpage and Craigslist Personals, it also contains thousands of categories. The most popular ones are obviously the Dating section. With little to no moderation, it has soon become the choice for many previous backpage and craigslist users. Like the site also suggests, it works best as an alternative to Backpage. It is also used as an alternative to craigslist Wichita and craigslist New Orleans widely. The Bedpage "Massage" section is full of stuff that Backpage customers are looking for. Bedpage has the most amount of genuine girls on their website.
The user base of Bedpage is also increasing by the day with many familiar faces for you if you were a Backpage user. With new users coming along, it is growing leaps and bounds.

3. ClassifiedAds (Recommendation Level: High)

In my opinion the best FREE alternative to Backpage and Craigslist Personals. The word FREE here is important as it works both for the site and also against it. For Craigslist Wichita users, yes Wichita is mentioned here with all its glory. As ClassifiedAds is free it has a large amount of traffic everyday but as a negative, we saw many fake ads there and they were present in plenty. The site always aims to provide great user experience. The UI is clean with no annoying ads present. The filtering process is also quite good but the amount of users placing fake ads is also quite high. Once again, it caters to both Back page and Craigslist personals users which is evident in its layout.

2. Doublelist (Recommendation Level: Medium)

Doublelist comes out as another alternative to Backpage and Craigslist Personals. While other sites here like Bedpage, Yesbackpage that claim to be the alternative to backpage and Craigslist personals tend to hide their Dating Section, doublelist is upfront in its approach and mainly focuses on “Dating”. Like Yesbackpage, doublelist too has its fair share of Bugs. Currently we are unable to create a new account on this Back page alternative. With our already existing account we can surely say that Doublelist works best as Backpage replacement. Users from Craigslist Wichita and Craigslist New Orleans won’t have any trouble using it when it opens itself to new users. While Doublelist started small, it is now a big organization with many users from craigslist personals and Backpage. It is a safe environment with loads of opportunities for everyone without getting judged.


1. Hoobly (Recommendation Level: High)

craigslist personals

Hoobly is a mix of both Backpage and Craigslist personals. It is not purely a dating site and it contains many other categories like Jobs, Clothing, Accessories, Events, Books, Healthcare, Business etc. While using Hoobly, we found out that these categories also contains many ads which are completely real. For Backpage and Craigslist personals users, it contains a separate Dating section. The one thing that we noticed is that there were no fake ads and noticed no spam. 
The interface is simple and does not require any rocket science. If you previously used Craigslist, then you won’t have any trouble.

These are the sites that we feel will end your search for Backpage or Craigslist Personals alternative. We left out well known sites like Locanto, Oodle as their personals section is not quite up to the mark. If you have any other alternatives that are new to us, do mention them in the comments. Cheers!
