It stays potentially forever. However the system defaults to a limited number of ads when viewing the categories. I think the initial default is 14 days or 30 I forget which or its no longer considered a new ad and wont show up when viewing the different categories.

There are two work arounds. When viewing a category there is an option at the top of the listings to specify how old of ads to display with various options up to a year. Changes made there are only good for that viewing.

There is also a setting under "My Account" at the top right of the screen to permanently set the display to several settings upto the last 90 days.

However if you want to see ads older than a year you either have to view a specific users profile or use the search function....but the ads are never deleted unless the person who posted them deletes them.
