    Hey there,

    I was wondering if I am trying to rank for an english keyword what engines should I chose? I usually just select all english speaking countries but would it be good to test out using different engines or using all engines etc... What do you guys think is right? Thanks for anyone who helps.

    I would recommend only using a few of the major English engines. The fact is Google alone covers most of the web so when you're using as many search engines as GSA offers you run into a lot of redundant URLs. Effectively, you're just wasting time and energy sifting the same links over and over again. I even read this on the GSA forums, I believe it was by a GSA staff member or could have been in a video, don't remember 100%. Anyways from what I recall the GSA guys said it's pointless to use all English countries for the reasons I previously mentioned.

    It also depends on how many proxies you have, for example if you have many proxies you could choose lower amount of engines (choose only google and google different countries ) and a lower wait time, and not get your proxies banned,

    There are many people who say different things. Some people say they get better results choosing few engines, some say get better results with many engines. To find the best settings for you I would suggest creating a dummy project and see which strategy works best
