Can't get GSA working right

I'm using private proxies, with only the PR setting on (PR 3+), contextual links only.

It keeps lurking between global lists and repeating them without any success, while captcha costs are being eaten as crazy. Once I turn off the global lists option, it just won't scrape any new links. I mean it does but I'm getting something in the likes of 1-2 successfully posted links per every 3-4 days. Needless to say LpM is abysmal.

Pretty sure there's something wrong and rates should be better.

Any thoughts, please?

    post some logs please to get a clue or some setting screenshots.
  • Thanks Sven,

    Sorry to ask but where to pull out the logs from?
  • SvenSven
    right click on the log window->copy all. But please use and not post the full log here.
  • A partial log:

    And settings screenshots:

    3 captcha providers, private proxies (plus some public scraped ones which I just added), 25 threads to use etc.

    I know PR3+ setting will find less links in general but still my success rates were much better before. Now it won't even post on the global lists properly.

    1. please disable all public proxies if you have private

    2. do not enable all search engines, just those matching your keyword language (english or international usually)

    3. PR3+ is very strict but OK....keep in mind that you might loose a lot potentional targets

    4. you seem to focus on contextual platforms, check also video engines and some others that allow article posting

    5. what settings did you use under search engines box?

    Well beside that all seems fine on a quick look.

  • Thank you, appreciate your assistance.

    Here are the settings:

    I was just wondering if it has something to do with the global lists. As when I moved all my projects and data it created same previous folder (user\appdata\roaming...etc.). And obviously, my new computer's name was different. So I had to change the settings to the new location of the lists. Still, it seems to me the lists are not really utilized and it won't post on the same websites for different projects.

    disable "analyse compeditors links" and enable the option above that one. That should give you more targets.
