    Hello,

    Just curious but have any of you guys tried using GSA SER directly without using a proxy? If so, have any had serious consequences?

    I know it's not recommended to use GSA without a proxy but I wonder if that depends on how you use it. There are some that unleash GSA on all day and there are some that run it for just 5-10 minutes.

    From what I read around, the consequences can range from getting banned by your ISP to getting your caught by search engines using software to create BLs.

    Thanks for reading!

    The Search Engines will have you blocked within a minute and your VPS will be useless for scraping. Also let's say you get away with it the next issue is as soon as some of the forums label your IP as spam all the other ones will also. I work with many forums and we share data and blacklisted IP's. This goes for so many platforms even wordpress has plugins that share pooled SPAM IP addresses automatically.

    Yeap, like fxphil said.

    But I run GSA without proxies when submitting sometimes. My LPM can run up to 30-50 lpm.
    But with proxies it can be low like 4-5 lpm.

    Other ways include running GSA and enabling proxies when searching and submitting. Or enabling proxies when searching but not when submitting (higher lpm rates).
    But of course, once your IP gets blacklisted... you're gonna have a slump in success rates.

    My VPS I'm currently using allows running SEO tools without proxies and hell I get very fast success rates as it is in Canada. Bermanhosting and other VPS are usually located in Germany or Poland, which makes submitting a little slower.

    Thanks guys. That's very informative!

    Being blocked within a minute is pretty damn impressive. I wonder though, will the blacklinks will be useless even if not using a proxy?

    I always use it with proxies, but people say that proxies are basically mandatory. I would never use it without proxies.

    Yes I had faced this experience a long ago, when I forgot to check the proxies option in my GSA settings and on the next day there was a suspension email from the vps company. lol

    That one little check box is pretty scary when you think about it. Got to double check the option settings! Thanks for your input... Btw, are you in the US? Depending on country, some ISPs aren't really that strict.

    Yes, once, by accident. I forgot to enable the 40 proxies I had just bought.

    The next morning, my ISP had terminated my service due to malware.

    If you have bulletproof hosting and you scrape links with something like SB, gscraper or hrefer of course you can run it without proxies if you wanted to.

    Using proxies is a good idea for solving difficult captchas though.

    What if you are using a purchased list and posting to it without proxies. There is no scraping and most sites that are being posted to are either AA or lazy about managing spam?

    A guy posted a thread on the gsa forum about having abuse proof hosting paying something like $140 a month and getting crazy good results and very high LPM.

    I always do that with proxies but GSA can scrape proxies and use those proxies automatically. Well this is something i wanted to try !

    Personally I've not tried it without proxies.
    if you were using a list, not scraping and only running one campaign it might be ok for a while.

    but once you hit any one site a few times, they would start recognising your ip, and that would be good.

    I've been using it for over half a year and never used proxies. It works fine for me, even with the temporary blocks.

    I was always wondering about this.

    But to make sure, I'd like to ask any GSA pro if GSASER obtains proxies without buying them by simply ticking the use proxies box.

    I always used purchased proxies but never really had any experiences with free proxies. The last time I tried to use free proxies, they were all unusable!

    I wouldn't recommend it. Get some fast private proxies (they are pretty cheap) and you are good to go.
