Best Practices for Filters

edited March 26 in Need Help
I have several domains that I want to filter from my projects so they never attempt to post to them.

I have 2 questions.

1. Is it better to create a .txt file with a list of all the domains I want to filter out and enter in the URL of that .txt file in the "Options" ---> "Filter" section and GSA will pull the list daily, -OR- is it better to list each domain individually within the Filter list itself?

2. If I want to filter/block a domain and ALL of it's subdomains, what format do I use? I have seen *domain.com suggested?

For example, if I want to block all art.blog subdomains, and I put in *art.blog would that also block bestart.blog (I don't want that, I only want to blog art.blog subdomains).

    1. Probably better to add it to the text file. But keep in mind that this file is not read instantly but with a delay of the interval you setup on that same page.

    2. Yes thats correct.

    I have put in:

    *wordpress.com

    And SER is still trying to post to wordpress.com subdomains, such as lovescihub.wordpress.com

    Where did you put that? You need to add it as *wordpress.com*
