Inofficial GSA Search Engine Ranker FAQ

  • It was mentioned a few days ago about adding the email "spam" stuff (and S4nt0s tool) information to the FAQ, but I don't see it included yet. I just answered another new thread about this. I really think this should be added here.
  • Guys, I don't have any time at the moment. Please help me and write the Q&A, then I just need to copy & paste it. "Add the email spam stuff" is no help for me at all.
  • Right-click on a running Project -> Modify Project -> Use New Engines
    no such menu here for 4.22
  • How can I use GSA as posting tool for my own list?
    Uncheck all
    search engines, uncheck “Also analyse and post to competitors
    backlinks”, uncheck “Use URLs from global sites lists if enabled”.

    global sites lists is not one of my own list?


  • Erbsensuppe...

    Here is the link to the discussion on how to manually update Hotmail account to not send email to spam folder.

    Here is link to the discussion on tool provided by S4nt0s that will do this automatically.

    Can I use GSA for building links to my moneysite?
    There are a lot of different opinions on that topic. If you set up the program correctly with strict filters, good content (best manual spun) and only for certain types of platforms, there shouldn’t be problems. Keep in mind that it always depends on the person who uses such a powerful tool like GSA.

    What are the different colors for?
    Green = submitting
    Blue= verification
    Orange = searching for new targets
    Red = something is wrong (not used for now)

    What should I consider when using email accounts?
    Make sure the program can access the pop3 server for checking emails. Also check that you don't delete emails in your email client once it logs into the server. All emails should be in your inbox and none should be saved in “Spam/Junk”.
    Here is the solution for Hotmail accounts: http://s7.directupload.net/images/120915/qohr5tb5.png
    You should check from time to time, if you’re email has been blacklisted and if that’s the case exchange it with a new one.

    What is the difference between "Delete URL Cache" and "Delete History Cache"?

    Delete Cache - Click this only if you have e.g. imported a wrong target URL list or think you want to clear the URLs that a previous search task found.


    Delete History - Click this if you..

    a) want to submit to sites that you previously skipped (e.g. you didn't want to enter captchas back than but want to do now)

    b) think it found sites in the past that it skipped but are now supported by e.g. new added engines

    c) think it found sites in the past and somehow your internet connection blocked it to get sent to (proxy issue e.g.)

    Ozz - great contribution again. 

    Here is also a link where Sven cleared up a bit how sitelists and target URL's work.

    Actually it wasn't my post. I just copied Svens response from another thread to this thread and formatted the post so Erbsensuppe can add it to the FAQ directly.
  • really useful post.

    Thanks @ Ozz

    Can the software handle input text in other languages than English?
    The software can handle all UTF-8 characters (which includes nearly all known characters). Before submission the content is encoded to a format which works for the site. Sometimes you will still see display errors, but that is a problem of the site that can’t handle encoding correctly.
  • Update:
    How can I display the diagram?
    Right-click on a project, select Show URLs -> Submitted or Verified -> Stats -> Diagram.

    This is now:
    Right-click on a project -> Show Diagram/Chart
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    updated it.
  • can anyone update on %url% and %anchor_text% tokens..there seems to be random one as well as %url1%..%url2% .. what are they?

    updated it. But the most recent document is probably the macro guide where you find even more details.
  • Hi,

    How to deactivate a registered copy of GSA and use another registration info? I need to get another license for my VPS, but the VPS version is already registered and activated.
    So how do I de-activate the copy on my VPS and use different registration info?
    Thanks
  • @zuka: You should contact the support. Nobody in the forum can help you directly (beside Sven of course).

    I also feel that there should be a section here on the format to import URLs.

    E.g. http://url.com/#{KW1|KW2}

    Or if using a secondary

    AND the fact that if using this, it will IGNORE the anchor & secondary percentages EXCEPT for Generic % which will still be applied. 
  • You did a great job! , very useful. thanks.
  • let say if I am trying to rank my 'dog training' site and I only put in keywords like 'dog training, dog trainer and dog trainers' for GSA to search, would this be a good idea?

    I see that some of you recommend using the following common english keywords list to scrape more links;

    But wouldnt that make my backlinks very irrelevant? I mean.. GSA will be very likely to find a site about (ie: medical) which has nothing to do with dog training?
  • Some people just go for pure mass linking, some for niche related but lesser links. 
    Thats up to you, but this is not the thread to discuss it.
  • This FAQ was a huge help Erbsensuppe, Thank you!!

    @GlobalGoogler

    i noticed something for ->

    I’m getting a lot of download failed errors. How can I fix it?

    ->
    if you disable Options -> Indexing -> Submit baclink URLS to top engines
    everything will gets smoother  (is that right ? @sven are the links submitted immediatly after succesful verification?)
     ... seems like the blog search engine submitting between is a little bottleneck...would be great if you can make a option to submit only at certain times or something ,)

    also for the speed / tread issue i noticed the following

    i had 400 active threads ... and about 1000 ~1-2s response time proxies
    it runs well and submits alot and the ram / cpu usage is at ~ 80%

    if i don't use proxies .. so if you have super duper fast ones or don't have to use some .. everything will go like in a super rush .. -> Cpu goes up massively and SER submits like on fire so lower your threads :)

     but that means ... the better/faster your connection (proxies) the more cpu power it will take since SER can rush even faster without this little waiting seconds that all together give a long time

    another speed improvement is to use proxies only for posting with SER and leave the standart search settings with my box ip .. ( had no ban problems and used it a while now )
  • Thanks very good post and usefull for all.
  • edited July 2013
    I'm no expert in any of this so I truly appreciate the great information you can find in here.
  • hey,
    please let me know,

    how to import verified links on the new project?


  • Would it be possible to add a feature to allow placeholders within another placeholder?

    e.g. 
    %anchor_text% = "payday loans"
    %file-%anchor_text%.txt% => Get contents of file named "payday loans.txt"
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    No sorry.
  • popup problem: stop and restart after optionschange! otherwise nothing happened

    1) Project Options -> If a form field can't be filled (like category) -> Choose Random
    Options -> Captcha -> Uncheck “Finally ask user if everything else fails (else the submission is skipped)”

    2) after restart project

    maybe this is with every change in editing options. i don´t know this ..sorry
