    I'm looking to buy the GSA search engine ranker, but I'm looking for the best way to run it, and I know that means buying extra programs.

    Can you guys give me a list of the programs you use, and also links if you aren't too lazy, so I can estimate how much I will need to spend on this tool?

    I like how you come here asking people to compile a list of info for you rather than do a simple search, and then say "also links if you aren't too lazy", when you are clearly the one being a lazy ass here.

    Don't buy GSA or any other SEO tools. Take that money and buy a bus pass so that you can get to your future job at McDonald's cuz you clearly don't have the work ethic to make it in IM bro.

    You need captcha's, private proxies and a VPS. BUT if you dont know what u are doing or ur too lazy, stay away.

    seeing as I'm completely new to black hat SEO I thought that i would hear from the experts, as all new comers would. I don't want to end up buying the wrong thing, but I can assure you I'm not lazy! Thanks for those kind words though!

    If you're completely new, this guides over on matthew woodwards site are a good starting point on linkbuilding etc.

    Remove the () obviously.

    GSA - $90

    + Monthly costs:

    For me at least the costs are:

    VPS - $45
    Proxies - $10
    OCR Service - $20

    So that would be $165 day one and $75 per month after that.

    I am also new here. Trying to cut costs. Could I potentially just run GSA SER on my computer (leave that on all day) and get rid of the VPS cost. Also, if I didn't use proxies what would be the consequence? My understanding is that my ip address would be making requests to many different sites once or a few times so no one should be able to catch on.

    Edit: I guess my ip would be making requests to google many times (and this may lead to a ban without a proxy). However, can I just leave google out of the process? And simply target sites that have certain keywords (regardless of whether or not those sites are relevant to google or not)? I feel this would look more natural as well.

    Do you not use the indexer?

    You should use proxies at the very least for searching Google but also because you don't want your home ip to be spamming things and getting on blacklists.

    I don't, thought about it but for what I am doing I'd rather let it be. Besides I tried to use Scrapebox's indexer with a similar amount of indexing sites as GSA uses for their indexer and to run 1k urls would take days. I am trying to get GSA lists put together so I can do massive runs so indexing would be pointless.

    It would be faster to just Scrapebox (comment) blast the links instead if I really needed to.

    GSA Search Engine Ranker - $90
    GSA Captcha Breaker - $120

    + Monthly costs:
    Proxies - $10
    (VPS - $20)


    - Proxies are necessary
    - If you have a high speed internet you can use SER on your home machine
    - Captcha Breaker with one time fee is also needed. Captcha Sniper is less expensive though, but you get what you pay for ;)

    - human captcha solving services like "DeathByCaptcha" are only recommended if you target platforms which use recaptcha a lot (NING for example). those services slow your submission rate down a lot and should only used for very important platforms imo
