I've been seeing a lot of threads about low LPM on the forum. I remember when I started with GSA SER, I dug into all the old threads about how to increase link dropping speed and some of the pioneers on the forum for that were @ron
and a few others.
So I decided to run some tests on just my home computer ( no VPS ) and a small pool of proxies ( just 10 ) and free emails ( yahoo ) to replicate what a newbie SER might set up and afford. You see sooo many people say to get lots of great proxies or to use non-free domains. Also a lot of people preach getting a VPS with a high-speed pipe connection.
I think it honestly comes down to 2 things:
- SER set up - which options slow it down and which options speed it up
- The URLs you scrape or list you use
I've been able to get even a home desktop computer with slow DSL, CB, 10 proxies, and free emails ( yahoo ) to bust out triple digit LPM's on JUST 1 campaign running in SER. Im not even using the magical 9.46 version of SER that so many threads are popping up about recently.
I didn't cheat either... no duplicate URLs and no duplicate domains and I am not posting to any site more than once. ALSO, the URLs I am running ARE NOT some verified bought list either.
It really shows it boils down to just your SER setup ( b/c my home DSL and 10 proxies is nothing to brag about ). You don't really need more than a good foundation to submit links quickly. My VPMs are in good shape too... typically range on this specific setup in the mid 40's to low 60's VPMs
Granted, I get better numbers on my VPS's with more proxies ( so I can run more threads ), but even a newbie starting out should be able to hit these same numbers dialing in their copy of SER without spending tons of money on "extra" stuff.
Make sure you spend a lot of time understanding the engines you select and testing them and seeing which ones are high in submission, but low in verification and find out why that is. For example, Pingback always sucked for me. SER would drop a TON of submissions to them, but I would get a low ( less than 10% ) verification rate on them.
That was an engine I took out, it wasn't worth it.
Maybe I help return some favors and help a few of you out. Let me know.
