    I've only had GSA SER for a couple of months, but have successfully used it to rank for some decent low to medium difficulty keywords with a web 2.0 tier 1. However, someone of the harder keywords I attempted to push with it haven't even broken through to the top 150 even running through 3 separate paid lists. I'm just kind of curious - when do you just know you're going to need much heavier links to rank than just throwing up a couple dozen web 2.0s and hitting it with two tiers?

    If you build links with GSA and a month later you're not ranking then that would be a good indication you need heavier links. I wouldn't be using GSA for tier 1 links anyway.

    Ya know, I still don't understand what the problem would be with using GSA SER to post to 5-10 quality Doc Sharing, Video, Social Bookmark, and Directory sites a day for generics/branded/exact URL anchors...

    To hit the bigger KW's you will need a much bigger tier 1 as compared to handful of web2.0's.

    How much tier 1 links are we talking about here.

    /\ The problem is if you're not ranking.

    GSA is great for low and medium competition niches. But for high competition niches I don't even bother with it.

    Let me clarify. I WILL mix PBN links with GSA but most of the time I keep them separate.

    And I do that to make sure my supplier is on top of his game. To make sure it's his links ranking my sites and not GSA.

    As far as "whats the problem with" what you wrote. The only issue with that is you can't really be sure which links are
    ranking what (if you're mixing paid links with GSA).

    If you're failing to rank, you need better links. Good luck!

    Or your site is hanging in a filter (penguine or something like that)...
