    I bought GSA, bought some semi-dedicated proxies, watched Matt Woodward's setup video 3 times and I got GSA setup like he suggests. I've ran the software now for an hour and 15 minutes and I have ZERO verified links, TERRIBLE. The worst part about it is I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. If you would be so kind can you please give me some things to check, or is this just the way it goes?

    The only thing that I can think of is I'm using the default email address (thought that every download comes with a new addy). I got some new ones coming on Fiverr.

    Right now I feel like I need to wear a bag on my head, if I was the creator of the software I'd kick myself in the junk!

    Thanks for your help!

    Peace,
    Z

    I got the trial version a while back and also followed his tutorial, no idea what you're doing wrong as it worked completely fine for me even with public proxies!

    What do you mean by using the default email address? You really should reach out to the GSA Forum where someone can take a look at your settings.

    Instead of the default email adress
    use a hotmail.com or yahoo.com

    Just make a Hotmail account and use that. GSA is nothing short of brilliant so don't blame it on the software or developer.

    Make sure your proxies are working. Are you getting successful submissions and no verified links? We need more info to make a diagnosis.

    If you want a few email, I can generate a couple that will keep you going until your fiverr order is complete. Just PM me and I'll pass you two email accounts for free.

    Thanks for the offer Nick!

    I'm starting to have second thoughts on this, this may be the best GSA setup ever :) I let it go for a long time and ended up with the following:

    1 - PR7 do follow
    1 - PR6 do follow
    2 - PR2 nofollow
    3 - PR0 nofollow

    I wanted to get busy with the software and this is my first run with it so I decided to just 'throw out' one of my hand built sites and run GSA on it. Well this is a good Tier 1 strategy and I like the settings for that. I'll just have to figure out a churn and burn set of rules for linking to those links and I should be good to go.

    Thanks for all of your good tips and wonderful offers to help!

    Check out the gsa forum. Screen shot your settings and post it there. There are good folks there who will be more than willing to tell you what's wrong.

    Learning GSA is a very steep curve as there are just so many options. Keep testing and and you will be getting more verified links. Having 7 links for c*b is not going to be enough.
