    GSA Search Engine Ranker is the ultimate black hat SEO tool. Used right, it's nearly effortless to push up your website in the SERPs. BUT, in order to use it successfully, you also need a bunch of other stuff.

    So reply in the following format. What is YOUR GSA setup, that you currently use?

    ----

    1. Captcha Service -
    Captcha Breaker, Captcha Sniper, Death by Captcha, etc. You probably use more than one.

    2. Proxies -
    Do you use public or private proxies? If private proxies, where do you buy them? If public proxies, do you use GSA's in-built proxy scraper or a third-party public proxy scraper like No Hands Proxy Scraper or Wicked Proxy Scraper?

    3. VPS - Do you use a Windows VPS, or do you use your own computer and home internet connection. If you use a VPS, what hosting service do you use?

    4. Content Creation / Spin Service - Very important for building contextual tiered links! What software do you use - Kontent Machine, Wicked Article Creator (with tier 1 upgrade?), Wordai, etc. Also, do you pay for content to be manually written for tier 1? If so, where do you buy your content and at what price?

    5. Mail Accounts - A couple thousand email accounts that you need for email verification. Where do you get them?

    6. Miscellaneous - There are also some other stuff like list scraper and SEO indexer that are perhaps not entirely necessary to the entire setup. If you use them, put them here.

    General comments on effectiveness: How effective is your setup at ranking your money sites? Have you made a lot of money using your setup alone? How long have you used this particular setup?

    ----

    Does this format require a revision? Just tell me below.

    But please try to limit posts to those that follow the above format. This is not a newbie question, but merely a way to share your own setup with other people, since there are so many possible setups. It's a way for experts to share their methods, and to help newbies like me out.

    1. Captcha breaker + other ocr for recaptcha.


    2. Buyproxies for posting, public for harvesting, custom made tool for finding public proxies. Harvesting links with Gscraper (its very fast).


    3. Vps is not way to go - you can get dedi for $60 and lower if you look around. I use 3 dedicated servers - two with Xeon 1230v2 cpu, and 1 with dual Xeon - total 12 cores, 24 threads.


    4. Custom scraper


    5. PM me and i will give you few email accounts for free.

    1. Captcha Service

    Just captcha breaker. Used to run some recaptcha service on top of that but figured it's not really necessary and the whole setup runs awesome as it is (using SERlists no-recaptcha list).

    2. Proxies


    Lol why do people mention public proxies like that's even an option. If you're even remotely serious about your setup, you should be running private proxies (no need for them to be dedicated, semi-private is just as good). Buyproxies - 30 semi-private ones and you're good for 250+ threads.

    3. VPS

    PowerUpHosting 4 core SSD VPS. Tbh I haven't noticed much difference between SSD and non-SSD but I got a really sweet deal on this machine. It runs like a beast with no downtime. It's pulling anywhere from 50 to 200 LPM.

    4. Content Creation / Spin Service

    WAC because it's by far the fastest and simplest way to setup content for an entire project. Sure SCM & KM can setup content for multiple campaigns at once, they got some nice bells and whistles and whatnot...but WAC just works. Bought it like year and a half ago, it didn't get more than 3-4 updates in the meantime but in all that time, it worked smooth as hell.

    Plus it's not a monthly subscription like the other two I mentioned so a huge plus there.

    5. Mail Accounts

    Couple of catch-alls for all the projects. Completely set and forget, just the way I like it! Oh and btw, they NEVER break down cause they're set up on a bulletproof dedi. Doesn't get better than that. They're so good I even opened a shop offering them to the public.

    6. Miscellaneous

    Used to run SB daily (on the same VPS) for scraping but these days it's easier to just buy a list a focus your attention somewhere else.

    However, if you don't have the funds for that, you can just setup a couple of "scraper" projects. Give them each a list of 10k+ keywords, use the "use target sites on verified URLs" option (but make sure to delete duplicates from target sites DAILY when using that option, you will get lot of junk in your target URL list really fast if you're not careful)

    It's much more hands-off than using SB and while SB way is a bit more effective, imo it's just not worth the effort for relatively small setups.

    As for ranking stuff, I've had most luck with web 2.0s. You can do them in large numbers once you get the hang of it (spun content ftw) which works great with SER.

    Sure you can use it with legit money sites but imo you need more than just SER to rank it properly. Something like a web 2.0 network which you then hammer with SER.

    But in anycase, you got to test it out as much as possible until YOU find a working formula. What works for me doesn't necessarily have to work for you.

    Interesting that you recommend only private proxies, because I have been thinking of buying No Hands Proxies, a public proxy scraper that can scrape thousands of public proxies and promises to be really effective.

    Please discuss on new thread: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...oxies-vs-private-proxies-gsa.html#post6906385

    Am I creating too many threads? ;)

    Because public proxies die in like an hour so your submission/verification rates would be horrible!
