    Is anyone using GSA for tier 1?

    I have an article super spun, +70% unique and I am fed up of Ultimate Demon and its shit submissions. Am I safe to use GSA with this article and see how it goes?

    I would definitely recommend GSA for tier 2 only especially if you are using spun content.

    If it is a site you care about you probably want to have "cleaner" tier 1 links.

    Safe? I would say no. Can you get some rankings using GSA as tier 1? The answer is 100% yes.

    I'm using it with success, but I didn't use a spun article, 1 spun article won't take you very far. I used about 50k-100k articles spun and all mashed together.

    It depends how many times you are going to submit that article though. I don't have any recent experience using a single spun article though to be honest, I have been making content the way I mentioned above.

    Sorry I think I may have worded my statement wrong there....

    Donald - I have an original article that has been super spun which is creating +70%(ish) unique articles over 1000 copies so I think it should be ok.

    What do you recommend? Is there any other quick way to create Tier 1s other than hand submissions or UD?

    Ryeman after your previous comments about GSA I am now using scrapebox to continuously add sites to GSA, then setting up 2 tier to link to the ten or so Tier 1s I currently have. But I am still frustrated by Tier 1 submissions.

    I think donaldbeck understand you perfectly on your op. and as he mentioned above, even if it is a unique hand written super quality article, if you will just spin that single article and submit it to hundreds or thousands sites, that would be a big no for tier one.

    I'm also using good amount of articles (no where near to 50k-100k) and mashed it for submission. Footprints are minimal compared to just one article spun to the max.

    I scraped the articles with content foundry, and put them together wicked article creator. Nothing super fancy.

    i read in another thread that you collect target URLs in SER to use them for UD and i was wondering why you want to do that?

    there is nothing you can do with UD that you can't do with SER or did i miss something? you are able to use macros that every article is just used once for instance. you are able to create your own lists and only post to those. furthermore you can use a service for Web20s for $14/mo that will give you +20 high PR blog posts (all indexable, random themes, deleted "Hello world" post, etc.) and combine that with your list of article sites or social networks.

    the only thing that SER doesn't have right now is a good way to re-post to existing accounts but thats just a matter of time until we get it and AFAIK it isn't possible with UD as well.

    I was advised to collect URLs from GSA to put into UD....because apparently UD can submit to a lot more Web 2.0 sites than GSA...if you run a web 2.0 only campaign GSA comes up with virtually nothing.

    I tried to sign up to the SEREngines service but theres a problem with their paypal invoice numbers?

    I have been adding sites to GSA by scraping with SB and a big footprint and getting relevant results. Are these being saved somewhere then?

    the Web20 sites of UD are mostly 'Social Networks' like PHPfox or Plone for instance if i'm not wrong. to my knowledge there are around 20 "real" Web20 in UD by default and some of them aren't indexable and/or with lower PR. you can try to set up a dummy project to see how many social networks/article sites will be posted with SER and how many will be posted with UD with the same (scraped) list to decide which works better for you.

    you should contact the developer Jamese in the SERengines thread you'll find in the official GSA forum. maybe he can help you out with your issue.

    i'm not sure if they are saved by default but you can create lists of identified, submitted, ... when you activate the global site list feature in 'Options -> Advanced'. you'll find those list in your appdata folder which are normally stored in "C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Roaming\GSA Search Engine Ranker\site lists". just import from a (identified) social network list(s) when you create a new T1 project and also use that list when you like to compare the success rate in UD. you should dedupe the list beforehand though.

    Yes, but make sure you use good filtering options - PR, OBL, stop words, stuff like that.

    Yes, its safe if your article is spunned properly and you set your filters right. I set mine at a min page rank 1 or domain rank 3 and <100 OBL on the page.

    i think you don't need any OBL filter at all as you are creating your own pages for SNs, Web20s and Articles Sites. that said, i don't think that much sites are filtered out anyway unless your OBL is too strict like <10. however, i think its obsolte for these types of links and should only be used for blog comments or something like that.

    I Use GSA for tier2 or 3 only not for Tier1 as it is better to create some more better links for tier1 either manually or either using some great tools such as magic submitter or money robot submitter which have high PR web 20 blogs and bookmarking sites etc in it for tier1.

    I'm using GSA SER exclusively to rank. I know it is said to be "safer" to use other tools for your T1, but i don't think thats the whole truth.

    I did all my Articles, SN, Bookmarks etc. in T1 with GSA, not even with PR/Badword filter. I'm not a believer that "bad" links can harm your page. Only if its too much at once and if they are all the same.

    I did it first to just "churn and burn", but what I see now is that pages stick on #1-3 WAY longer than they should.

    I don't say "use GSA on your most treasured moneysite", but you definitely can use it to rank for more than 3 or 4 month.

    Best Regards

    Tier 1 should be unique and high quality content. It's used as a funnel for the link juice to flow through to your money site. If you use gsa to blast tier 1 links then you have to make sure each tier 1 has lots of high quality content also. So a tier 1 example would be an enzine article.
