Getting Closer - Tuning SER and a few things I do...
Thanks be to @Sven for a really cool piece of kit. You're relentless... addaboy!
SER has so many options it's taken me a few weeks to wrap my head around it and have it humming.

Firstly - correct me, work with me, debate me. Let's find the best practices for each technique.
SER along with fightback network, is ninja chop. I'm seeing some serious results with this software.
I run SER totally lean as per the settings in the thread above. No PR, No scrapes, No secondary scrapes, No pings, just bare bones.
Learn your Macros and use them. They are great for customizing blog comments that will stick.
Nothing better than being able to have your templates 90% ready and just pointing Macros to the right data folder.
Take the time to rewrite all the footprints, blog comments, etc. Stop.. do it right now, or I keep snagging your links.
Break out T1 and T2 indexed links and put them into their own campaign.. then hit those really hard with fresh Garbage.
Don't worry about Garbage links indexing or reverifying, you're not going to use them again. Hell, verifying Garbage is just a resource waste.
ABS, Always Be Scraping - I know @ron lets SER do it's thing, I don't. Hrefer > Import Into Garbage Level.
Build your own keyword scrape list. I haven't used an English list in over a year. Top 2000 singular in 10 languages and lots of number variations (3, 4 and 5 digit permutation's).
If you do scrape with SER - 3to5 Google, 1 Bing, 1 Ask. IMHO
I don't ping with SER. Use a service or do it with software. I use SEO Indexer on Garbage using second internet connection.
I pull RSS feed daily, upload to my server and let SENuke run them through the feed services.
Analyze your verified and deselect low success platforms.
Stop looking at your SERP positions, stop staring as the logs roll by, diversify your link strategy with other techniques, and build MORE money sites.
