    Hi Guys,

    Im currently running a very small campaign on GSA. It contains 6 URL's, each with the keywords in the URL field(using spintax, so each url has a possible 3 keywords)

    Use a random URL from above on every submission (else in sequence) is ticked

    I do not have "use keywords as anchor text" because I have my keywords in the URL field.

    Some of the verified links are showing, related terms to my keywords, but the terms aren't listed anywhere in my campaign. They're not in my keywords section, or in my anchor text section. Even if they were, i don't have these ticked to be used as anchors. I want just the keywords in the the URL field to be used as keyword anchors.

    I also have branding,generic,domain and anchor text variations checked.

    Even stranger, the anchor text showing in the verified links section of gsa is different to what is actually used as the anchor. Ive just checked a few of these verified URL's, and each has the domain as the anchor, not the anchor text being listed in the verified tools section.

    Any idea what's going on?

    Best thing to do would be to backup the campaign and send it to me or Sven so we can take a look. You can feel free to ask these questions in the SER BST if you want.
