    Honestly, I'm not sure how any of you learned how to use it yourselves! Scrapebox and GSA both have incredibly terrible tutorials online and very few of them. I can't seem to find a simple guide anywhere that even explains to me what either one of them does, why you need both, OR what to and what NOT to do with it.

    I found another thread that said "what should I do for google rank, etc" and the answers were ALL "just read blackhat world, read around..." GREAT I've been doing that too, but everybody talks about the programs like we were all born knowing how to use them. HALP!

    Check out Matthew Woodwards blog. That is how I learned to use GSA SER. He has some pretty good and in-depth tutorials with tips.

    GSA has its own forum with a lot of good stuff.
    Here are also many GSA case studies:

    Answering your question about if you need them, I believe both of this tools are a must if you want to be doing real SEO, even if you don't want to use SB as a poster it still have many features for scraping proxies, links etc

    hey alex,

    Im very new to GSA and Scrapebox too, the best way to learn is "learning by doing".

    You should have a look at Jacob Kings website, just google it.

    Well I would have to agree with all the answers yo ufind, "just read blackhatworld" type stuff, the reason is they are trying to teach you to search. For example you say that scrapebox has incredibly terrible tutorials and very few of them. I personally have uploaded over 100 video tutorials on scrapebox totally well over 15 solid hours of video. I go into great detail and cover a wide variety of topics.

    If 100 tutorial videos are "terrible and very few" then your asking too much IMHO.

    As for GSA, I watch the first 20 mins of matthew woodwards video to get primed up and then just figured the rest out by pushing buttons, its mostly self explanatory (to me anyway).

    The issue is your approach to both programs. You want a "beginners guide", but in reality you should be trying to learn how they work and then you will know how to apply them. Scrapebox for example has hundreds of functions, if not thousands, and can be used in tens of thousands of ways. So you can't "make a beginners guide to scrapebox" because there are tens of thousands of uses and I can't make tens of thousands of videos, and if I did no one would watch them all. Id bet you haven't even watched even half of the 100 I did make.

    Searching google or BHW would have turned these up. Go search google for "scrapebox tutorials" and 9 out of the first 10 are all tutorials, and one links to my youtube channel with 100+ tutorials on it. I say your lack of basic understanding of how to use a search engine is your issue, and if thats the case, you have no hope on planet earth of ever ranking in them. :)

    Not flaming you, just saying, if you can't help your self really by just searching, you should reconsider your plans.

    Learn how to do SEO manuall, how it works etc.. then once you have a tool, you will not be thinking

    "how can I push enough buttons to rank a site"

    You will be thinking

    "I already know how to rank a site, how can I apply this automation program to automate the things I already know will work if I do them manually"

    Then you have learned to fish for yourself instead of asking for someone else to give you a fish, so to speak.

    Really, if you want to suceed, you have to invest in your self first, and learn not "whats the beginners guide" but buy the program with the "how can I automate what I am already doing manually" approach.

    My 2 cents. My channel is linked above and on the first page of google for most scrapebox searches.

    Youtube has some good tutorials for GSA. One thing I did to learn it is - setup a dummy web2.0 and start experimenting on it. Make mistakes, fix them. Really, that's the best way to learn.

    Heck, Mr. Loop I saw all your videos before I found BHW but forgot most of the stuff. What would the top five videos you would recomend as a Refresher course? Thanks.

    Hard to say, I have over 100, what are you trying to do? There are SO very many uses for Scrapebox the top 5 would be relative to how you plan to use it.

    When Scrapebox 2.0 comes out I will do some how to starter guides for some common usage paths for Scrapebox. Many people seem to put Scrapebox in a box, no pun intended, and think of it of only being able to do a few certain things. Of course its the swiss army knife of SEO but none the less I will show some common uses and string the videos together for that end, probably you will find those helpful when they come out.
