    So i watched few tutorials video on it and i read few articles here about GSA journeys etc. So i want to give it a try.
    But again i got few questions.. What do i need to start? Proxy, will i be fine with 400-1000 elite proxies a day? Or do day even provide some public proxy scrpaer (built in?)
    Does GSA has some built in free CAPTCHA service? Or i have to buy some? I saw captcha sniper for 50 or something like that, is it good? (in tutorial i saw that the dude had like 3 free captcha services and last one was paid)
    Do i need to buy something like wickedarticlecreator? In few tutorials i saw them using best free article spinner..
    In GAS SER thread here, they have another service for 15 a month? Is it worth? What it will do? (daily url of new blogs or?? pls explain)
    As i mention above, how do you get those links? GSA SER will search google for those KW? Or you have to "scrape them"?
    If i forgot anything, pls mention it. If you know about some tutorial that helped you, pls post it. And again sorry for my crappy english

    Also need to know this. I have WordAI, a content generator, proxies, SERLists, SEREngines, captcha breaker, scrapebox and GSA. It's all sitting here doing nothing because I don't know how to set up a quality campaign.

    What engines do I pick? Do I need an indexer? Need to know this...

    OP you have to pay for the captcha breaker and it doesn't work that well.

    *Note* - If you go to the help menu in the software, you'll see a link to the support forum and there should be sticky threads that have plenty of videos. You might need to follow a long a more in depth vid. Not sure which ones you've seen yet.


    1) Proxies, captcha, and emails are important to start. SER does have a public proxy scraper built in, but for best results private/shared proxies are recommended. I'm assuming by 400-1000 elite proxies you mean one of those services that email you x amount of elite public proxies per day. I've never tried one of those services with SER, but I think it would work fine. As long as the proxies work well for scraping, you will be fine. If you're using verified lists, then it doesn't matter as much if your proxies are Google passed since they won't be doing any scraping. The proxies should still be fast and anonymous for best results though. I

    For emails you can get 1,000 yahoo emails from a vendor for around $10-12 or if your host allows, you can setup some catchall emails and use those or grab some from a service. For captcha solving we recommend getting a stand alone captcha solver + a fallback captcha service to solve the harder captchas. So your stand alone captcha solver will solve the easier captchas and the fallback service will pick up the harder captchas the software can't solve. It saves you a lot of $$$

    There are list sellers that sell lists which work with only captcha breaker so if you're into buying lists, that's always an option.

    2) You don't have to buy WAC. SER has a built in content scraper + integrates with many spinners. Some people prefer to use software like WAC/Kontent Machine/SEO Content Machine to generate the content for SER because those software also generate the content for all the data fields, not just the articles. It saves time if you're using SER for lower tiers and you're trying to generate some quick, relevant, spun content.

    3) For the $15/month I believe you're referring to SERengines with a service that focuses purely on the web 2.0's and keeping those working. There are some big plans for this service coming in the future so might want to wait for the new version.

    4) You can either let SER scrape for you or you can buy/build your own lists. If you let SER scrape for you, its basically taking your keywords and built in footprints and querying search engines to try and find URL's that it can post to. When it finds a URL, it checks to see if it matches an engine and any filters you might have set, and if it does, it tries to post.

    A lot of power users will use external scrapers such as Scrapebox 2/Gscraper to build their own lists. Feeding SER a list just helps it get the job faster since it doesn't have to handle the scraping on its own. Also, buying lists is an option, you just want to make sure its a reputable seller and the lists aren't oversold.

    So your options are let SER do all the scraping, use an external tool to scrape and feed the lists into SER, or buy premade lists that you import into the tool and get a bunch of links fast. Each method has its ups and downs in terms of time/money/results.

    I'll shoot you a PM.

    Thanks dude, some good insights here. I've also been looking to start doing some heavy grafting with GSA SER, but I feel my knowledge of blasting links, captchas, proxies, scraping etc is still not quite there yet.

    You mentioned a stand alone captcha solver. Do you have a recommendation for one? Or what do you use and why?

    EDIT: PS I never even knew a stand alone captcha solver exists... I was going to go with a paid service that charges per captcha solved.

    I use the one that I sell called GSA Captcha Breaker ;)

    Usually you will use a stand alone solver with a paid service as a backup so you aren't wasting money sending easy captchas to a paid service that can be solved for free by an OCR software.

    So much to learn with this app, I kind of recommend running it at 5 threads so you can see what is going on.

    OP Santos has most covered, in my opinion SEREngines is a total waste of time, I have tried it twice now and could never get it to work. The support is slow to none existant, FCS Networker is much better in my opinion. As you seem new to the tool I just want to let you know that SEREngines is NOT a service by GSA but a third party, GSA and their products are solid and well worth the money.

    Reference how to use it I recomened you just build a few free web 2.0s targeting a low comp keyword and start a few SER projects on them.

    Check out my journey, just posted the easiest way to select the best engines to help a follower out. Takes like 30 seconds, text and picture guide about half way down the page.

    Sorry for the double post, I meant to click edit on my previous one.

    Lol, i'm not sure if you are just inexperienced with the tool, confused or saying threads when you mean something else but your recommendation is pointless. I run SER at 300 threads with 30 semi dedi proxies. The thread count and the messages in the display pain have little to nothing to do with learning the tool.
