Can someone explain how this GSA SER "submitted" count works

    I recently bought GSA SER, have it running the same campaign for about a week now, but every time I check to see how many articles it has submitted, it seems to get less and less.

    After a week, this is what I see:

    Has it really only submitted 12 articles running 24/7 for a whole week? I doubt it, but if not, how is it counting then? And even so, 7 sites being verified still seems really low for the amount of time it's been running for.. I've used SE Nuke and XRumer before and by now they would have submitted like 1200+

    Thanks

    The submitted column decreases when a submitted link is verified, and then added to the verified column.

    As the links in the submitted column run through the verification process, if the link is found it moves to the verified column, if it isn't found after trying for x amount of days it will just drop off completely.

    As far as the low submitted/verified that is 100% due to your settings. I can get more verified links then that in less than a minute so we'd have to know your settings to see why you're getting a low submission/verified count.

    I bought both. I'm even using DeathByCaptcha as a backup.

    The past few days I keep getting this error (the bottom one)

    I updated and added new proxies and everything..
    Any suggestions?

    I'm doing Articles, Social Networks, Web 2.0s, and Wikis

    Can you show more of your settings? Are you running filters like PR/OBL filter? Private proxies? Scraping from search engines or imported list? Need a lot more info in order to help.

    I am running a PR filter but only for below 0. I am not using private proxies, but proxies using a software that scrapes for elite proxies, which I update every day. I do not have an imported list of sites. Here are my settings:

    Increase HTML timeout to at least 120+, 10 threads is pretty low but if you're running it on your home PC that is fine. Your proxy settings are incorrect, you have it set to use public and private proxies everywhere but from what you said you aren't using any private proxies.

    You have custom time between search engine queries unchecked, proxies get blocked pretty quick if its querying the search engines too quickly so you might want to enable that. Not sure how many elite proxies you're using.

    Any reason why you have it set to pause for 30 minutes after every 100 submissions? That's fine, I'm just curious because its kind of a weird way to set that option.

    Also what are you using for email verification. Having good emails will make a big difference in success rates.

    First off, thank you very much for all your help & suggestions.

    I followed all of your suggestions, so I guess we'll see the difference tomorrow. I just have a few quick questions:
    If I have private proxies checked and don't actually use any private proxies would that really affect it?
    What do you suggest setting the custom time between search engine queries to?
    How many threads do you suggest I run? I am running it on my home PC but I don't really use my home PC for anything other than this.

    I set it to pause for 30 mins after 100 submissions just for a more realistic approach, to decrease the chance of getting penalized by Google. Do you have a different suggestion that would be more effective?

    And lastly, what would you consider "good emails." I'm using an @outlook email

    Thanks again!

    1) No, but you should disable that and also uncheck using proxies for email checking and probably verification. I usually check the option to "skip for identification" too. Using public proxies for email verification isn't going to work well.

    2) You can start with that default 60 and see how that goes. Really, if you have a lot of good working Google proxies you can drop that down a lot but I have no idea how many you're using and how frequently they're updated.

    3) If you're running on your home machine you can start small and then increase in increments. The problem is if you have the thread count too high and you're own your home PC then its going to use more bandwidth and slow down your internet connection so you won't be surfing the net very fast from other PC's on your network.

    The pause for 30 minutes doesn't really make sense because you can still get 100's of links daily with that option unless that is what you're going for. Don't really have a suggestion for this because I don't really believe in max amount of links/day, but do what you feel comfortable with.

    Good emails I've been using lately are Yahoo and MailRU. If you need suggestions on where to get them, shoot me a PM, I'd rather not post links to the websites here. Outlook accounts have been giving a lot of people issues lately.

    To drastically improve your LPM the only way is to use verified list or scrape targets using a scraping software. I ran into this problem before as well.

    GSA makes a great posting tool to various platforms. But when you make it scrape for platforms to post to (by selecting search engines):
    1. You proxies get burnt much faster as they get banned by search engines
    2. You are spending threads querying for your keywords when they could be posting.

    I would highly suggest scraping your own targets as GSA is really slow at scraping.

    Do you have a link or know where I can find a guide or anything on how to effectively scrape your own sites? I have scrapebox but seem to fail when it comes to scraping my own sites.
