Rules & Posting Guidelines

Backpageseeks to create a safe and welcoming environment for users to post and respond to ads. We have provided the following guidelines to make sure Backpageseek users may interact freely, be assured of respect, and harmful and illegal activities are avoided.

In your interaction with others, always be respectful. Follow the golden rule: if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.


Backpageseek is NOT a review board. Users may NOT link to reviews on other sites.

Content Violations

The content you post -- words, pictures, images, etc. -- should not violate the rights of others and should not contain or condone defamatory, fraudulent, deceptive, abusive, drug-related or illegal activities.

Given the amount of content that is posted, we are unable to monitor it all. We ask that you as a community assist us in making Backpageseek a pleasant environment. If you have a reasonable belief any posted content would violate our Terms of Service, gives misleading information, or serves the purpose of harassing or endangering yourself or others -- please report it to us.

If you suspect that content posted breaks the law by violating copyright law, please report that here.

If you have a reason to suspect that content distributed might be of suspected criminal activity -- please report it immediately to the appropriate law enforcement agency.

Once contacted by the proper authorities, Backpageseek will cooperate to the fullest extent possible. However, Backpageseek does not have capability to investigate or offer meaningful resolution – if you suspect or believe you have been the victim of a crime – please report it to the proper law enforcement agency. Only by reporting illegal activity to the appropriate authorities, can you assist us by effectively ensuring that Backpageseek remains a safe environment.

We cannot act on allegations or suspicions. Bear in mind when reporting a violation of our Terms of Service that the information must be truthful. If we detect on-going patterns of harassment in our reporting system, this may be treated as abuse of our Terms of Service.

Ad Rules

These are the rules we ask users to follow when posting ads:

Always post ads in the correct category.

Users can post as many paid ads as they like. No one likes spam though, please respect your fellow advertisers by not over doing it.

Free users are permitted to have 1 account. If you are a paid user, you can have more than 1 account provided they are all paid accounts. Creating multiple accounts to post free ads in unpaid categories is not permitted.

We encourage you to promote your website on Backpageseek to increase your traffic. You may link to your website as allowed by the Terms of Service. However we ask that you do NOT use Backpageseek to promote competing websites.

No One Under 18

THERE IS 0% TOLERANCE on content relating to or alluding to minors, children and young adults. We WILL report serious violations to the authorities. If you see or suspect this violation, please report it to us immediately. Fantasy or 'role-playing' regarding minors is also NOT ALLOWED. This includes any daddy/daughter, mother/son fantasies or any other type of role playing involving minors. It is impossible to determine intent for this type of post.

No drugs

We don't allow the sharing, distribution, or selling of illegal drugs on our site. This includes poppers.

No multiple accounts, no spamming of posts

We don't allow multiple accounts for one user. We also discourage over-posting (more than 2-3 posts a day). Repeated violations of over posting / spamming will get your account terminated.

No pretending to be someone else

Don't pretend to be a different gender, different age, use someone else pictures, or post in categories that are not relevant to your situation.

Historically, only less than 1% of posts get flagged, and less than 1% of users get their account suspended. If you are honest, you follow the guidelines, and you don't try to trick the system - you'll have no issues using the site and you'll have tons of fun. Finally, please remember that you are ultimately dealing with strangers from the internet. Please be cautious and safe. Also be very aware of any one asking for money from you. There are a lot of scams all over the internet. Do not share your financial information with anyone or provide any form of payment. Please be smart and careful.
