URL Verification has stalled

I am new to GSA SER and have a question / concern. I ran a Tier 1 campaign (PR 3+) for 5 days and GSA shows "submitted" 224 URLs and "verified" 18. I turned off the campaign 48 hours ago but left the campaign as "Active". There have been no changes to the number of verified URL's during this time. I was expecting at least some change to those results. Am I missing something here?

Related settings are currently:
Project Status: Active
Verified Links must have exact URL: unchecked
When to verify: custom time = 60 minutes


  • SvenSven
    what version?
  • I've been updating with each new push. Currently at ver 6.5.3
  • same problem here. i have updated to 6.53 now and here is my stat for tier 1.

    I have kept strict filters to post to only 30 submissions per day and yet I had so many submissions.
    When i checked, I had a lots of "account verification awaited" for my submissions. 90% of 915 submissions are awaiting account verifications. 
    I checked logs, there is no error in email setup. The setup is fine.
    I checked the emails and found many links there which GSA- SER was not able to find. 
    Can someone please help me with these? 
  • Experiencing same here, the only thing that actually works for me is to run the verification mode manually and then set it back to active. Otherwise it keeps not verifying.
  • theseol,

    I'm not familiar with the manual verification process you are mentioning. Would you please explain how to do this?

  • @Nrl : he would be logging into each account and verifying the links if i am not wrong.

    Have you guys checked your email accounts aint been suspended by hotmail
  • I checked them by running the test function in the "settings, E-Mail verification" tab. All check green OK.

  • Stop project, click verify only, let it run to end, then set to active. Works for me better than waiting while being on active.

    Manually activating I just do randomly to check if it's the platform or GSA's mistake :)

    I checked emails again and found that few of them are asking phone verification.. so dead.
    And in few email accounts, i had the POP folder created where most of the emails were.
    I ve no clue how did that happen. 
    also, in one email I had 700 deleted mails most from mediawiki platform. Think the problem is with my email provider. 
    Someone please recommend any quality email providers.

    I've been staying away from the whole hotmail/outlook area for a while now and never looked back. I use a combination of my own email domains and accounts from
    You wont get any of these problems when you have complete control of your mail accounts.
  • I may have found something contributing to this problem. When I initially tested the emails "edit, E-mail verification, test all" they all failed. I found this to be odd so I exited the GSA SER application and restarted the test. This time all 200 email addresses tested good except 2. I deleted those 2, restarted the verify process and am now getting the expected results. 

    Today I set up a Tier 2 campaign pointing to the Tier 1 and everything appears to be working fine.
