It depends on the area. Craiglist works really well in a lot of areas but recently my daughter moved from Logan Utah to Orem Utah and neither of those areas use CL but rather they use KSL mostly, the local news online. They have a very good rental section where you can market your rentals. So check your own areas where you have rentals and ask people in those areas. They will know what is mostly used there.

I don't often do rentals, but when I do, I get the most traffic from prospective tenants from zillow, trulia and hotpads.  There was a site called postlets that I would do an ad on and it would syndicate the ad to many rental sites, including zillow, trulia and hotpads.  It has since been purchased by zillow and I don't like it as much because it is not as easy to use since zillow took it over.

Craigslist and Zillow.  Hands down.  Realbird gets the rentals posted on Zillow and has a nice craigslist format, plus gets it on the other rental portals too.

Most of my rentals have been through Craig and Zillow, my most recent was actually through the MLS!

CL and Trulia do have a great reach, but so many scams scare tenants and landlords. The same though is happening in other platforms. The key for a landlord is to interview each tenant carefully, choose the best, not the first and take caution.

I don't know the answer to this, but I can say that our MLS shares data with a ton of platforms. I just had a rental listing, and most of the leads came from Trulia. There were some from Z or hotpads.
