    Progress is so slow now it's almost negligible for me.

    And i have the main bases covered, no spam platforms on t1, only contextuals on t1 and t2 and good index rate 60-80%.

    Still nothing worthy of mention...

    Everything just stays stuck in the 50s-100.

    Seems google is using war of attrition style tactics these days.

    GSA is good for diversifying links, you cannot expect to rank with just GSA links unless you are in very low competitive niche. GSA basically builds low authority links.

    You should buy links on high authority blogs.

    Exactly. You need manual high quality backlinks to hit the main keywords. You can use GSA to diversify anchor text and referring IP addresses.

    Wauw such a little post and so much miss information, i rank for middle and high comp keywords with GSA only, just because you don't know how to operate a piece of software doesn't mean it doesn't work. So yes i do have success with GSA, you need to learn the software and test multiple methods on multiple sites.

    It took me 4 months just to figure out how to do churn and burn and make it work, so try out other methods and don't listen to people here who say GSA is only good to diversify, obviously they have no clue of what they are talking about.

    It works for churn and burn. If you want to build authority-type websites, it will be very hard to rank with just SER alone (unless you're targeting low competition KWs).

    Watch some tutorials, do your own testing and see what works for you. No one is gonna share his secret about how to rank a site using GSA, you have to find out for yourself. GSA is still working, you just have to be unique not like everyone else spamming with it. :)

    I don't totally agree with this, you can rank pretty much anything with GSA - you just need to up the amount of links in a major way, well over 6 figures.

    Fiver gigs that give 10,000 link are a waste of time these days, you need more like 100,000 link to be in the game these day.

    is this based on proof or just a figure you puilled out your ass based on a cpl of rnadom posts you read on this forums similarly packed with unfounded misinformaiton like this one?

    Not implying it is bullshit just interested to know if its grounded on evidence or not.

    Depends on how you use the tool, there are many features that allow it to rank sucessfully for med even high comp keywords, it just depends on the work you are willing to put in.
    Out of the box its good for higher tiered links, with some effort it can be good for all tiers

    If you're in the high comp niches that 100k spamlinks is about right, tpo get this you will need a lot of resources, my setup is like this, 2x GSA, 2x Captcha Breaker, 2 dedicated servers. 250 proxies and a separate VPS with scrapebox.

    First i scrape with 4 copies of scrapebox testing different footprints, i use one gsa server to clean the dirty links and build my list, the other server i only use for posting with clean lists.

    To get results you really, really, really need to scrape your own list and keep that to yourself, buying lists is not the way to go as these list are getting sold to/shared with lots of people that are power users making these lists useless in a couple of weeks.

    People think you buy a copy of GSA, put it on a cheap VPS ad 10 proxies and rankings/money will appear, and let me be honest, i thought that ti when i started out , but if you really want to make a dent with GSA you really need to invest some $$$ :)

    Good luck

    Do you diversify you anchor text profile or just hit your KW's hard?

    Could someone either share or provide a direct link to a strategy that they are using and getting their sites successfully ranked? Basic linking hardly seems to deliver results for me, I have tried all contextual tier 1 links powered by all sorts of others as tier 2, but no real luck in having main keywords show up on google, not even within top 1000 results.

    Hey, I have a better idea: why don't we just rank them for you, so you don't even need to do the work, let alone the testing?

    i can make up to 250-300k + plus links a day but only a fraction of those links will index cos they are all junk. If they arent index they are worthless. so please do tell what is your index percencetage on those?

    The first campaign I ever set up with GSA got me ranking #1 - 14 months ago and I'm still #1 for that keyword today.

    This is a keyword right on the border between moderate and high competition. And when I set that first campaign up I had NO IDEA what I was doing.

    I've come a long way since then. And that's why I get so confused when I see threads like this. If you have to ask if GSA works you've either never used the program in your life or you're the unluckiest person alive.
