    i have used GSA SER+CB for 2+ months. here is my experience.

    i create tier-1 articles, and social network. then blog comments, trackback, shortened url as tier 2.
    i got NOTHING. one of my sites experienced some serp drops.

    some people told me for youtube, i can just spam the hell of it. but i got absolutely no effects. (in fact, i saw some high-ranking youtube videos have nothing but 300 or so social signals. i bought signals from fiverr, and i got nothing too.)

    the gsa seller was diligent in helping me, but never really solved my problems.
    1, LPM in single digits, even though it was like 500 on his machine. (my vps does not appear slow.)
    2, Do-follow percentage is very low, around 50%.
    3, constantly running out of places to post links!

    It could be your settings or something, I've used GSA and its one of the top tools out there and has always gotten me good results.

    LPM and other stuff depends on the List (target URLs) not VPS speed or anything.

    The tool does what YOU tell it to do.
    Stop blaming the software or the developers and get your ass to work harder to achieve results.
    GSA is one of the top SEO software of all time - nothing you say can beat them, enough said!

    You need a good solid list to start off with. LPM will largely depend on the platform and the list you have.

    You're using it wrong. Watch the GSA videos and read the GSA forum.

    the guy ran the same thing on his computer and got 500+ LPM, and i got like 5? the only other difference is the proxies. (i paid $10 for my 10 proxies.)

    you need a good list , a very very good list (verified link list) same goes with scrapebox , xrumer and all other softwares . The list is the most important thing after that you need a good vps + some great proxies try using proxies that have username and passwords . that will improve the success rate , Plus use a link indexing service you want all tiers to be indexed then only you will have max effects on serp

    I am pretty sure that guy was not using just 10 proxies. There you go, your first improvement: buy more proxies!
    Buy semi-dedicated to save money at first, I think 30-50 should do. And use a GOOD list!

    None of the mentioned statements don't explain your problem.
    GSA is a "must-have" tool in every SEO's arsenal.
    There are, however, few questions you might be concerned.
    What about the competitiveness of your niche? That might be the biggest indicator.
    What about your articles? Are the HQ? Or some scrapped no-spun article with low uniqueness?
    If you try to rank weight loss with GSA for 2 months, you got fooled alright.
    Yes, you can rank only with GSA for low comp and mid to low.
    Use Wikis, Web 2.0, Articles and Directories, Social Signals and Bookmarks on your own risk.
    Use the same for Tier 2 including Social Signals and Bookmarks.
    URL shorteners are a easy to track footprint, you might wanna leave that.
    Are you using a list?
    Verified lists play huge role in submissions percentage.
    If you are new, you need to read a word or two on this matter.
    Proxies too play a huge role. Use at least semi-dedicated, dedicated at your best.
    Believe me, GSA is d shizzle!

    i have to admit that i dont understand about the "list." why would i need a list?
    my understanding is that SER (and scrapebox) goes out a get the 'list?' with given keywords, they goes and search the internet and find a list of sites that are relevant to the topic?

    so in SER, i enter keywords, and select search engines, and then they would actually run out of sites in 0.5 days? i even use scrapebox to find related keywords. some of them i entered 40 keywords. i eventually tried to use "the" as a keyword, and it still ran out of sites?

    the guy actually give me a list he uses and still no difference!

    You need good dedicated proxies. fast VPS server and a good list - or scrape your own lists.
    When I used to run it I would run several (10+) projects for one site - seemed to get better LPM that way.

    You really need to experiment as well - set up a few throw away sites/videos or whatever, run a few projects to them, use different settings and make a note of what works.

    GSA isnt an easy tool to use, but if you get it right it does have fantastic results.

    It's not an out of the box tool. It depends on how you use it :)

    1, my keywords are not very competitive (except for an ecommerce related topic). i even tried a (longtail) keyword that i bought on bhw. problem with that one was it's so niched that i have a hard time coming up with a 2nd article.
    2, my articles are hand written by myself, not even spun garbage. then again, i have to spin the article when submitting to SER article sites by doing something like {meanwhile|at the same time|simultaneously} etc.
    3, i use shorteners because they are the only one that actually give me links! everything else gives me like 2 links a day?! i can do it manually and get more links!
    4, i have to admit that i am too lazy to create tier-3. i drained all my energy/enthusiasm trying to write and spin the articles, especially after seeing that posting success rate is so low.
