    So I scraped 500k unique URLs(After removing duplicates) using GSA footprints like:
    "Provide a password for the new account in both fields" + keyword
    "The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly" + keyword

    etc, these were all supposed to be blog comments.

    I added these urls as target to GSA and it only submitted 22k and verified only 70 half of which were nofollow.


    How come it only submits to 22k and verifies only 70 if I'm using GSA footprints?

    This is just the reality of building your own lists. If you want to improve your results, you're going to need to scrape a lot, take a look at the targets that turned into verified urls, and build your own footprints based on what's working. Using the ones provided inside of SER isn't going to get you great results.

    Next time save the search engine results from Scrapebox in an Excel sheet and start taking a look.

    Also GSA Search Ranker has a tool called "Footprint Studio" (in the Advanced tabs then you click Tools.)

    Check it out it's really useful once you have a good amount of specific platform links. It shows you words or phrases that appear in all the pages.

    Just grab the ones that appear in 99% and add them to the end of your current footprint.


    For example,

    "Provide a password for the new account in both fields" + keyword + "new word"

    "The content of this field is kept private and will not be shown publicly" + keyword + "new word"
