"Filter by engines" will be faster processing for GSA PI?

"Filter by engines" will be faster processing for GSA PI? Will this greatly increases the sort in process if I only select the engines I use?

Since for every url GSA PI downloads, it has to scan through hundreds of engines, looking for a particular footprint among the engines? If I select a only a few engines, then every URL only need to check through those few footprints so will it increase the speed of processing?

If I use "Filter by engine" then all the engines that I never select in the "Filter by engine" will become unrecognized URLs?

    I wouldn't say it greatly increases the sort in process speed, but it should be faster if you're only filtering the engines you want instead of selecting all engines .. that is correct.

    All URL's that don't match an engine will become unrecognized URLs.
  • I would like to recommend a feature by right clicking on the "Filter by engines" allow us to select only do-follow and contextual engines.
