    I have been trying a lot of tactics with GSA lately but I still get like 1-2 links per minute... I don't understand how some people manage to do thousands per hour.

    I've tried filtering my verified sites list like this :

    Article-Article Script........: 2
    Article-ArticleMS.............: 1
    Article-BuddyPress............: 58
    Article-Drupal - Blog.........: 7
    Article-Moodle................: 18
    Article-php Link Article......: 1
    Article-UCenter...............: 11
    Article-vBulletin - Blog......: 3
    Article-Wordpress Article.....: 15
    Article-XpressEngine..........: 874


    removed all the bad ones in most of site types (comments,social bookmarks,etc.)

    Tried getting good private proxies,increased thread count,increased/decreased html timeout.I have absolutely no filters also.

    Edit: removed blacklisted e-mails,decreased proxy threads to 5 and increased timeout to 25.
    Even worse...

    WTF!

    I know that there is one major issue, because even when I import target list I get like 7 links per HOUR...

    I have read GSA forums and haven't found anyting helpful there. Maybe some of you know where the problem is ?

    proxygo is a reputable provider. tompots and G-S-T both have free proxy lists that they publish every now and then. or you can roll your own but it takes time to find 1000+ google passed proxies in time to use them before they expire or get blocked.

    Well, I don't think thats because of proxies. They are expensive + I am using 2 proxy providers.

    SSl and www.proxy-n-vpn.com. They both work really fast with youtube.

    Are you using private proxies? Letting SER scrape it's own targets? Threads?

    Have you checked the "allow posting on the same site again" and then decreased the time limit for it?

    You should look at your proxies. Consider running without proxies if you have a fast enough connection and see if you notice a difference.

    Turn off proxies and try to post without them. If speed is ok your proxies are bad or your internet connection is bad.

    I'll tell you how to boost your LPM but you should know that the guys who get insane LPM's are running verified lists and disabling verification. While searching for links you get a lower LPM but you can still get it way above 1.

    First you need a server and proxies. I guess you can also use an extra computer instead of a server if you have it. You want 4+ gigs of ram and a good connection (ideally a VPS/server). You also want the computer to be 64 bit, this allows GSA to be able to use more memory. Lastly, you need a captcha solving program. Services like decaptcha and DBC are too slow and will drain your bank account way too fast.

    You want to set GSA up to use as little processing power as possible to get your links. So every little thing GSA has to check for is going to slow you down and also it may hinder you from building links. Only filter if you really need it, I mean word filters and PR filters and so on - these can really slow you down. Do not collect keywords from target sites unless you really need it and also having the box "use urls linking on same verified url" to find more links is great but again it will slow you down. If you have that ticked it will create massive lists so it's a good feature but you need to watch it. It will also not auto remove duplicate urls - that is something you will have to do manually. That checkbox is something you can turn off and on and remove dupes to find more links easily but it's a bit of work.

    Go into options then click advanced and untick the box that says "Get PR for verified URLs" - you don't actually need that and it is just one more thing to slow you down.

    Go into options then advanced then tools and remove the duplicate urls from your site lists.

    Also on the running log in GSA right click on it and log to file for a little bit to see what is happening. Are you having download errors? Then your proxies may not be good or your site list is bad or you need to increase the HTML timeout in the options window. Are you getting a ton of already parsed sites? Then you need to remove the duplicates from your lists.

    You need to also optimize the platforms you post to. If you use a captcha solution then likely it will only solve captchas on some platforms and not others. You need to manually go through those and untick the platforms that it doesn't do well. You can do this when editing or setting up a new campaign then right click and save engine selection so you can load it again later for other campaigns. If you want to take this one step further then save off the submitted and verified lists and compare each platform to see which ones are not auto approve. This is probably the most important step in all of this and will save you the most time.

    Lastly, where you get your lists is important. Using scraped lists will always give you the lowest LPM. While running your verified list is always going to give you the highest.

    I am going to implement some of the changes helloinsomnia listed above, but last night I watched this video and made the changes recommended. I was running 7-8 LpM before I made these changes. This morning I am running 17-19 LpM.

    Thanks man, but I might have watched every GSA tutorial out there including this one :)

    Strangely enough that so far the more tutorials I watch + more changes I make, the lower LpM I get.

    Thanks for help everyone though.

    HelloINsomnia said basically everything that can be said concerning to your LPM. One more thing I might add is to check if you are pausing your projects after a certain amount of submitted/verified links. You can't expect a high LPM if you are pausing your projects after 50 submitted links for 24hrs. Now if you are not pausing your projects at all then I would also ad more keywords to your projects, this helps a lot.

    I do have a question too, I have seen it mentioned in conversation but nothing in any tutorials yet.

    I hear people talking about keyword lists and how big they are, with people commenting on 500k lists. I believe, but may be wrong, that the keyword list is referring to those entered in the "keywords" field under data. I was going forward on the assumption that these keywords were used to find sites to post to and that you wanted them somewhat relevant to your project. I used keyword map pro for a project and after about half an hour had a list of around 1500 keywords.

    I am thinking some of the assumptions I made above are incorrect. Can someone clarify for me?

    Yes you are correct, they are referring to the keywords field.

    So is this field used to search for sites to post to? At 500,000 keywords I am guessing that its not a very niche specific list of keywords. I have been using lists in the 1000-1500 range but they are niche specific.
