There are lots of guides out there for GSA SER - quick a few have been posted recently on this forum and there are also loads of really useful videos on You-tube that show you how to use every advanced feature of the program to increase productivity. However, a lot of these guides are complicated and the truth is you can't really use them until you know a bit about GSA SER already - and/or until you have actually got stuck in and installed the program. Also its very complicated program as well. So I thought that I would do a short practical guide on how to use GSA SER - the things that you need to make it work and how to actually get started. Step 1: Required extras GSA SER is a great program but it comes with quite a few requirements and I don't think a lot of people realize this at first when they want to use the program - definitely for me the costs kept snow-balling when I originally started using the program - although its worth it. Things you need are as follows: GSA SER - the program itself, available for purchase on this forum. I think its around $99. GSA Captcha breaker - to crack proxies and also to manage input from other captcha services - $147 Content generator - SEO content machine and Kontent machine are good. The first is around $27/month Proxies - you really need some private proxies - normally $1.50/proxy (rhoughly). You need 5+ depending on velocity. additional captcha service for hard to solve captchas such as the one offered by reverse proxies - $20/month. Scrapebox - is ideal if you want to scrape your own lists - $59 (?) VPS - you really need a VPS to run the software on - $20/month+ Emails - I use buybulkaccount.com whre you can get 1k yahoo accounts for about $5 I think. So there is a lot of stuff that you need before you can really get started. Step 2: Setting up GSA SER Once you have purchased the program its very easy to download and install both it and captcha breaker - best to install them on your VPS of course, otherwise you will really tie up your home PC. Once installed run captcha breaker and then run GSA SER. There are a few things required now to configure GSA for use: install your proxies in options tick use proxies for everything - this can probably be tweaked but I do that to be safe. tick to stop on no working proxies (Otherwise it will start running on your VPS IP and could get you banned by your provider (They will get complaints). Tick to start again on working proxies. Set up captcha breaker to send to another service on failed attempts - I use reverse proxies OCR service but you can also use other captchas solvers like death by captcha or whatever. In GSA options, captcha add captcha breaker - or whatever service you are using if not CB. After you have got these settings ready you can create your first project. Note that you can import most of the required fields for your project from your content provider so its best to get this content ready first. Personally I use SEO content machine - I scrape 5-10 articles for each project and I use the first article that I scraped to set up all of the spintax stuff required by GSA. Just create your project and then select tools, auto fill and then select the program you use and browse to the scraped article - this will fill spun comments, description, about me text and so on. I normally fill everything except for the keywords and anchor text which I normally add myself. Few other things to keep in mind when creating your project: Platforms to use - I normally tick all of them and then remove doc sharing, video sharing etc. You can select only do follow engines and you can make other tweaks here if you want. Add URL variations as appropriate Add in lots of keywords for diversity - I normally use scrapebox to scrape a big list of target keywords - same for anchor text. Make sure that you set captcha section to use services and not manual, also set "if form cant be filled" to chose random - default is ask user and you will get loads of prompts asking you to fill in captchas etc. In the articles section add the remaining articles that you generated - you can just point to the folder and it will add them all in. In the email section import 5 accounts or so from your list - I find yahoo accounts work well. Step 3: Scraping links It is definitely a good idea to either buy SER lists OR to scrape them outside of GSA because I don't think its that efficient doing it all within GSA. You can easily scrape lists yourself if you have scrapebox, roughly the procedure is as follows: Get a list of footprints for GSA SER from here. Scrape keywords based on your niche using Scrapebox keyword scraper Put footprints together in one text file - easier to manage. Split your keyword list into manageable sizes - 100-1000 keywords, again using dup remove. Add a set of 1k keywords back in to scrapebox and mix with your list of footprints using the merge option - export this list of keywords+footprints and then randomize it using dup remove - I do this so that as soon as you start scraping you get list of random platforms. Scrape URLs using scrapebox, when it finishes remove duplicate URLs and then save them. In GSA SER you can then go to options, tools and then import and sort the list - this will prepare everything ready to go in GSA - I import the list but select to save it to file, then I import it directly to the project, but you can do it in different ways. Then you can set your project to use identified list when posting to sites. This is really just a starting guide to using GSA SER, based on my experiences after starting using it again recently. Once you get it all started up you can read other guides on this forum and also watch all the stuff on youtube and you can tweak all of the above stuff to get it working even better.
