OBL Filter Not Working on Blogs
I've just been checking my blog comments and my OBL filter has not been applied at all for these projects, even though it's been enabled the whole time.
Anybody else found this?? I have this problem on multiple projects that run blog & image comments. I haven't used it on other platforms.
Annoying but I've come to terms with it... Filters are messed up.
Unless they get skipped depending on the number of threads you use...? I use around 300 - 800 threads most of the time.
So to just confirm;
OBL filter also does not work for me, SER builds links with 1,388 OBL when filter is set to 50.
PR filter doesn't seem to work, builds links to PR0 and PRN/A sites with filter set to 1.
At first I thought maybe its getting a fake PR issue but when you visit the sites they have a PR of N/A and 0
PR not correct can have the following issue:
OBL not correct can have the following issue:
@sven perhaps the proxy is banned but if someone sets a filter to only sumbit to domains that have a PR of 1+ surely if your proxies are receiving a PR of NONE or INVALID or NOT DISPLAYED then the result of the query should be = do not sumbit link.
Your link should only be submitted to a url when the conditions are met.. Isn't that the point of having filters in the first place... if a proxy is banned when check the PR of a page and the result does not display a PR result then the link should not be built.. @sven what your stating is that SER is building links to these crappy PR sites due to dead proxies, when I am stating that this should not be the case, if a PR results returns false in any condition, the link should not be built, these PRN/A's and PR0's could potentially hurt our sites.
@sven concerning the OBL's, you're stating that these links that contain lots of OBL's are from previous submissions..? How can this be when I set up a brand new fresh campaign with a brand new fresh website which obviously has a brand new URL which has never been in SER before, set up the campaign with these conditions;
build only on PR 1+
has less the 50 OBLS
after a couple of days, I check the verifieds and I get some results like this, (example)
a page built a couple days ago with 1,400 OBL's
a page built a couple days ago with a PR of N/A or PR0
I get this all the time.
A link should not be built if a PR result has returned as false..
OBL's are weird.
@Tim89 - Thats why you have the option to skip unknown PR sites as well. If you check that option, it will not submit.
For the OBL, did you check the date of the submission? Maybe you didn't check the option to validate exact URL, and you use web2.0 sites where any www.youtube.com/* would get verified when you have a youtube URL as project URL.
But it does happen quite a bit.
@Sven My 'validate exact URL' option is not ticked, wasn't quite sure what it did, I thought perhaps it only verified pages with my naked URL on it rather than my keyword, so I've never had it ticked. Will try it for the future though.
@Sven yes the dates are all in order, it was the campaign that created those links with high OBL's, and regarding the PR's of the domains, I have tried the option of skipping unknown PR but it still creates PR0 and NA links.
