Welcome to WebmasterWorld papa_mia.
Why not start with the full list, test which countries send you the least business, and then decide for yourself?

An easier route would be to select only those countries were English is the national language. Should reduce the list significantly.

It is difficult to build up a critical mass to get a site like that accepted. If your fist 90 ads are 90 single ads from 90 different countries it will not do much to encourage visitors from any one of those countries. Concentrate your efforts on a specific region such as Eurozone or North America and get that established before expanding.

The general wisdom is that success with classifieds is more likely within a niche. However a worldwide niche, eg Lear jets, might work.

Yes, I agree. My first site was actually online classifieds and its not going to be easy posting yourself for each country individually. Classifieds just like forums need to start with some content (usually initially posted by the webmaster/admin).

Start small then expand; unless you have another strategy that you think will most likely work for your market.
