    I downloaded the trial of GSA SER and it doesn't seem to work unless I buy a Captcha service and/or proxies.

    Am I correct in this?

    if so, how much more money do i have to spend to get GSA SER to work?

    Really you want GSA captch service, which is alot like captcha sniper but better in my opinion. Although people will debate that. If your skint for cashyou can buy a vps with seo tools already on I believe.

    I have GSA and I also purchased GSA Captcha Breaker will save you a fortune). To make the most out of the software you will need a cheap VPS and 10 private proxies. You can get a half decent VPS for around $35 and 10 private proxies for $20.

    You don't need to buy captchas, because GSA SER is also posting to platforms that don't have captcha protection. It also has free proxies scraper/checker so you don't need to buy private proxies.

    But you will see real power of GSA SER only by putting it on fast dedicated server with 10+ private proxies and captcha solving software like GSA Captcha Breaker.

    Correct. Theres also a trial version of Captcha Breaker to go with GSA. The cost of the GSA setup really depends on your project and needs.

    roughly:

    CaptchaBreaker - $117
    VPS (1Gbs link, 2GB ram) - $25
    Quality Proxies - around $2 each

    There is also a trial for captcha breaker i think, so you can use together to test things out.

    You will need Captcha Breaker for R$117, Around 10 proxies (it can be semi dedicated) for $10 a month

    Things to improve alot your work would be Gscraper/Scrapebox ($68/$57) to create lists, and a vps for around $35

    I use captcha service along side with captcha breaker. It allows you to reach sites others won't bother, meaning less "spammed to death" links, better quality.

    if you want to have the best bang of it, you should have the following:
    1. 4CPU and 4GB ram VPS
    2. 20 dedi proxies
    3. Captcha Breaker
    4. Scrapebox (you can buy lists alternatively).

    It is really hard to tell the true cost. there are some users i know are running with 100 dedi proxies and 3 200USD/month dedi server. It highly depends on what you are going to do with it. :)

    You also need to remember the costs for content and spinning, which can get expensive if you're outsourcing, so then it also means buying spinners and/or a cheap auto-content service.

    - VPS good quality
    - Captcha Service
    ----CB (alternatively CS)
    ----OCR service
    - Content Creation tool
    - Content Spinner
    - Proxies
    - Index service
    - Lists (or scrape)
    - mail accounts (or tool to do)
    - SERengines suscribtion (recommend for web2 submits)

    of course all depend by Your needs - You MAY run SER on Your home PC without any use of VPS, MAY use public proxies (with less success), MAY not index Your links, MAY use integrated content scraper and spinner (with very less quality), MAY not use OCR (and will lost every quality sites, which use recaptcha), IMO You can`t avoid use of at least CB ...

    For quality run You`ll pay aproximately 280-300 in monthly subscriptions.. for low quality - one time SER and CB (CS)

    Instead of Windows VPS, go for SSD VPS which is a lot better in my opinion. Get a decent proxies and gsa captcha breaker, articles from SEO Content Machine and Email accounts. Read a lot from their forum and use GSA SER 100%!

    A great little tip is using Wicked Article Creator to scrape and auto fill all the content boxes in GSA. Saves like 20 minutes for each project of setting up :)

    If you're trying to save as much money as possible, you could go down this route.

    - GSA
    - Captcha Sniper (I have seen cracked versions around online)
    - $5 worth of emails for GSA from Fiverr (or you can create your own emails)


    GSA has a built in Proxy scraper. This works okay until you can spend more money. You can also use bestfreespinner to spin your content for free.

    Once you have more money to throw around, you can

    -Buy Captcha Sniper/ Captcha Breaker
    -Buy Shared/Private proxies
    -Buy Article builders for GSA
    -Buy a VPS to run GSA on

    so i have this thing running out of the box stock, and trying to get wiki, web 2.0, social networks with PR1 and above and i have 17 verified links in the right box. however, when i look at them they are all sites that show information about my site. like webinfo.com or webutations.org, etc. no actual backlinks. There all Red colored too.

    did i set something up wrong?
