Strange discussion of the GSA SER
edited December 2021 in GSA Search Engine Ranker
Hi all! By some fate, I have been doing SEO for over five years.
I am a website developer and mostly did SEO optimization and bought expensive links.
I've always wondered how other people publish so many links to their sites on various sites that aren't pretty?
I didn't believe in the "automatic" methodology
So for two weeks now, I've been sleeping 5 hours a night and trying to catch up. I learned what GSA SER is.
But that's not the point now.
It would seem that we live in 2021 and are surrounded by a lot of useful available information that you could only imagine, but... Unfortunately, helpful information is a lot harder to get than it used to be.
I found so much video content on this forum from enthusiasts who were just there to help newbies or record explanations and solutions that help EVERYWHERE.
Where are all these people? Why don't the authors of the videos that used to be posted on this forum continue their activity? On all channels, the last video was over eight years ago.
Explain to me what happened, why the community does not develop? I understand that it's better for us that fewer people know about such methods, but why? Do these methods no longer work? Have people stopped wanting to promote their sites?
I decided to discuss it here. Thank you for your attention.

I actually experienced that with one client that is a playboy model (Kayleigh Wanless) a few years back, where we actually partnered up to share revenue from the joint ventures and in the end she paid me nothing. It initially started as me doing a favour for a close friend of mine and he referred the client to me.
I did about £20,000 worth of web design work and off page seo on multiple businesses over 2 years. Sites were ranked and revenue was generated and she still paid me nothing lol
Before I walked away from the projects she tried to get me to train someone in SEO with the intention of him being our resource to use on our businesses. But it turned out that she was secretly planning on setting up her own SEO agency without me lol
A lot of lessons learned on that venture.
It's situations such as this that have made me change.
- Never work with models as they're always broke lol
- Get the money first before starting any work!
- If your client is named Kayleigh Wanless, don't take the work! Run!
- Don't mix business with friendships
But I hear what you're saying, sharing of information by professionals with skills will grow the community and only encourage more sharing. Someone only has to plant the seed first for it to grow.
But the game have change now since FB ads also more strictly with so many banned account, and Mr. G giving hard time. Here come the times SEO are needed more than before, but for who just start for SEO there will be hard to rank now since indexing more difficult than before, and rank slowdown more than before. So keeping an existing SEO assets and skillful human resource is a must more than ever, the good business owner know this best will success more. The golden ages for easy rank ended on mid 2020 after May 2020 core update.
So the mindset of SEO became mid/long term strategy rather than short term strategy, can't expect result for 3-4 month, its more like 6-9 month, what ever method you use generally. If the business owner fail to understand this, they will out of the game for sure.
I'd suggest check the posts from the early days and pay special attention to ozz, ron, leeg, gooner beside others who shared their immense knowledge.
Unfortunately many of the images are broken from back then but you'll get the gist. Here is collection of golden threads for you: https://forum.gsa-online.de/discussion/3204/my-compiled-list-of-tips-notes-threads-resources-for-using-ser/p1
