Last night when I went to bed, around midnight I set GSA to run, 100 threads, PR2 or better, and I woke up, and it had made 14 links, in 9 hours. Which I think is down right crappy!
also last night before I went to bed, I went on fiverr and bought access to 5 private proxies. I set them up in my proxy tool, and then set my threads on GSA to 50, and wrote an e-mail. I came back 15 minutes later and all of a sudden there where 40 more links made.
So I'm thinking, the solution for running slow is to use some private proxies
