GSA Going Slow & Capture Error Message - 60 Proxies / 0.35vpM / Dedicated Server / 1Gbps Connection


As the title suggests, I'm getting very poor results from my newly acquired GSA SER.

And I'm getting very little results, vpm of 0.31vpm now, dropping since I started writing this article.

Any idea on what I'm doing wrong?

    I would need more than just a VpM number to see what might be wrong.

    What kind of links are you building? Contextuals?

    Those will always be slow if your scraping links from directly inside SER. Remember, your only getting 1 link per domain with contextuals.

    The links I'm submitting:

    - Articles
    - Directory
    - Social Bookmark
    - Social Network
    - Web 2.0
    - Wiki

    In seven hours:
    96 submitted
    16 verified
    vpm now 0.04....

    It went nearly 3 hours without getting one verified link

    I spoke with Sven who kindly identified blocked proxies, these were replaced yesterday with 60 fresh proxies, but I haven't seen that much of an improvement, in fact, it's got worse.

    My next idea would be to look at acquiring target URLs, this rate is just far too slow

    If your scraping within SER itself, your never going to get much above 5-10 VPM for contextuals- even if you tweak everything to kingdom-come.

    I'd look into Scrapebox/Hrefer for scraping your own lists, or, of course, buying Linklists. Obviously I think mine are the best, but you can view a large selection in the Buy/Sell/Trade section right here.

    I would actually be quite happy with 5-10 VPM.

    My VPM is actually 0.02 now. I will look into Scrapebox & Linklists, something needs to change with this

    You can try fleshing out the Search Engines SER is scraping from as well. Adding a number of custom-search engines can make a huge difference.

    PS: Shameless plug, again, because I'm terrible, but it might actually help.

    We have a free trial on our site, no strings attached. So I'd grab that and see if importing the freebie lists makes a difference. If not, you have a problem somewhere outside of list acquisition.

    Also, we have a couple of bigger lists you can download for free here on the forums. (A few 100k VS the 5-10k we give out daily via the trial). Dig through my post history and you should find it :)

    Hope some of this helps.
