    Hi All,
    A few days ago here on BHW i heard a user talk about using footprints when using GSA SER for Fourm spamming.

    Thanks

    Footprint can be example:they use same name on all forum profiles then you can scrape for all there links. Thats just one example.

    Its basically something that you leave behind in the online sphere that can be traced back to you or a point of origin, if google finds that you have been building you're links through GSA it means you have built you're links in a way that has left footprints for google to trace back to you or a point source there by resulting in penalties from google.

    Footprints is just too broad, SEOdave footprint meaning is 'google footprint' i think.

    And what TS mean about GSA footprint can be about 'scraping footprint'.
    Im not GSA expert but i use that beast.. and from what i read about GSA, you can teach that software to scraping new posting targets if you teach it to find new footprints.

    Footprint in GSA is like SB footprint, example in wordpress, they footprints are "powered by wordpress" or "add article PHP link directory" for php article footprint.
    You can find bunch of footprint (originally inputed in gsa) in Option > Advanced > footprint studio.. and you can use footprint added there to input on scrapebox and find more site to post based on that footprint..

    Authority gsa expret s4ntos release his own program called 'INIreader' (you can search here in bhw, he shared it free, i forgot the link but have the software) to find new footprints for gsa (or scrapebox) to find new platform and teach your gsa to find and post on that platform.

    Im newbie and told what i know, if im wrong.. feel free and please correct me

    Regards
