[Music] hi guys Matthew Woodward here and today we're going to take a look at gsa search engine ranker that has come along leaps and bounds in the past year i'll show you how to use easily and avoid confusion so you can set things up properly and get the most out of it you'll learn how to build high quality links to your sites and how to set up tiered link building structures with ease I'm also going to show you how to use it to remove links which is a great feature to help protect you against future Google algorithm updates and this is gonna be a long tutorial so let's just jump right in so let's jump into the gsa search engine ranker software quickly and first of all i'm just gonna give you a quick overview of the interface and then we'll drive down into the options and creating projects and things like that so here you have your project pane and a list of all of your projects will appear here right now there is only one project and that is

01:04
the sample project up here you have various tools there for creating new campaigns and changing options and making sure everything's running here you have a list of the last verified links that were built and they are color code in that a green link means it is do follow yellow means it is nofollow and sometimes you get grey links appear which are redirect links you can see here down here you have a log of all of the different things that are going on in a background so you can see lots of pinging there and here we can see where it was submitting URLs at the bottom you have various that here you can see the current number running threads which is zero how many links have been submitted today how many links were verified today how many

02:07
active proxies are our your number of submitted links per minute the number of captures sent to capture services and solved the amount of memory in use and the CPU usage so as you can see a lot of the things are self-explanatory and if you hold your mouse over various things it comes up with little tooltips to explain different options to you as well if you get stuck and if you right-click on a project you also get lots of different options here you can change whether the current project project is active or inactive and there are various different modes of active so you can have it only verifying links that it is submitted only verifying emails only searching for links and verifying them but for the most part you'll just want the main active tab here you can also list by priority and also look at the URLs so we

03:09
can look at the submitted URLs here and you can export them or even get some more detailed statistics including some charts and breakdowns and you can control the timeframe here or actually here you can also broken down by engine and what type of link it is and which project will it belongs to if you do exactly the same but this time we can see the verified URLs so the verified URLs are links that have been submitted and are currently live and pointing to your site or target URL where as submitted means it has not yet been verified that the link is live yet is only been submitted so looking at verified URLs again it's all broken down account of the internal external links whether it's due follow or not we can get stats again and also break it down by an anchor text report as well and you
Can see how that's all broken down there so those stats and these lists of...
04:10
can see how that's all broken down there so those stats and these lists of verified URLs are very handy to have and tucked away in this show URLs menu here you can also choose to select various projects if you want to make bulk changes to them you can change the sorting of the projects in this window here you can take a look at the overall diagram of links that have been submitted and verified and you can break it down here by engine types blog comment trackback indexer or actually within the engines themselves so we can see some keyword love links and Whois links and some backlinks etc there again there are some other options here import tagged URLs is a handy feature to have now if you have scraped your own target list of URLs perhaps with scrape box outside of gsa search
Engine ranker and you wanted to import them for submission you would do that...
05:10
engine ranker and you wanted to import them for submission you would do that here import target URLs either from file or from clipboard you can also import them from site lists but I will cover that shortly and here you can modify the project which in essence offers you a lot of the options that you get when you double click and open up a project but we'll explore that in a little bit more detail later on so let's take a look at some of the more advanced options quickly now by default the threads are set at 50 that's fine for most people but if you've got a more powerful machine and bandwidth to play with you can increase this I have a quad-core processor and 16 Giga RAM and an 80 Meg fiber line so I can easily handle 250 threads but by default this is 50 which will be fine for most people next you want to make sure you are using proxies now you have two options when it comes to proxies you can either use gsa search
Engine ranker to go out and automatically scrape public proxies from...
06:13
engine ranker to go out and automatically scrape public proxies from all of these different types of sites and it will test them and verify that they are working for you and you set that up by telling it to automatically search for new proxies every 60 minutes when there's only less than a hundred active property proxies you want to text test proxies and test all of the good ones and remove bad proxies when they are older I don't know perhaps three hours now with that set up GSA will go out and scrape its own proxies for you the problem with this is that public proxies aren't that reliable they're often pretty slow and you get a much higher level of rate of failure with them which you know it really just slow things down whereas if you spend perhaps as ten dollars a month on some

07:14
semi dedicated proxies from buy proxies for example performance is much greatly increase you get much higher submission and approval rates and it's just much more efficient so for the amount of money it costs to get the private proxies it really is worth it so to add your own proxies in that manner you just need to come to add proxy import from clipboard and I already have them on the clipboard I think yes and we can mark them as private so with your proxies imported either using private or public you can then in the options here choose when to use the proxies and whether to use public or private ones now I always use them for the search engines submission and PR checking and I always use the private proxies as I've just explained the differences if you're just using the public ones you can leave these on ticked or just hit the public
Ones like that but seriously invest in some decent semi dedicated or private...
08:17
ones like that but seriously invest in some decent semi dedicated or private proxies from somebody like buy proxies it is such a lifesaver next you will need to set up capture solving services now gsa supports a huge range of different capture solving services but you need to understand there are really two types of capture solving services going on here you can either use something software based like capture sniper or GSA capture breaker and this will for a one-time fee a piece of software that tries to automatically solve captures for you now these do work pretty well however they do also fail quite often so the best way to set up your capture service is to use first of all GSA capture breaker as your first and primary service because this will
Help you reduce capture costs but then use a human based solving service like...
09:19
help you reduce capture costs but then use a human based solving service like def by capture or D capture where any that failed from capture breaker get passed on to these services and they're solved by an actual human and these are like I think it's like $2 for a thousand capture solved or something like that it's really really cheap setting them up is easy that's gsa capture setup here if you've got the software running locally that will automatically work for you and then I'm going to add def by capture as my secondary service it's the one of the cheaper a human base solving ones and you just need to enter your login details here and you can hit test and see your balance so this is what you should set up and you can also set the number of retries here and also some other options of when to use different
Capture services we've capture setup you can move on to indexing now it will...
10:19
capture services we've capture setup you can move on to indexing now it will automatically ping every backlink it creates and if you want to you can also integrate one of the many indexing services that GSA supports we have the GSA SEO indexers is a native support and other things like you know link licious that's a popular one nuclear link index backlinks index a link pipeline Lindex and they're all really easy to integrate tick the box at the API key and that is it now I don't really see the need for these the use of these indexing services I know some people like to use them and if you've got them then by all means use them but really you can avoid having to pay the extra money for these we can get links indexed by just building more links to them with GSA and save ourselves on these costs and to filter you can choose to skip submissions if
Certain to URLs or are present and and add to your blacklist you can leave this...
11:23
certain to URLs or are present and and add to your blacklist you can leave this at default you don't really need to drill down into this and when you're just getting started and the Advanced section now you can build site lists that can be used globally by each project so what that means is if you had three projects here each project would create a list of identified sites it could post to successful sites that it did actually post - verified links that it was actually able to create after successfully submitting them and the ones that failed and never became live or verified after they were successful now I would suggest that you actually keep a list of your successful and verified submissions and then you can use these later on in other projects so
If this project here we can see it's got 189 verified URLs we could easily and I...
12:26
if this project here we can see it's got 189 verified URLs we could easily and I will just show you how to do that quickly if we created a new project we could say to import the target URLs from site lists submitted and verified so you can imagine after using gsa search engine ranker for a few months you will have a huge database of submitted and verified links that you can then use across over projects really easily so I encourage you in the Advanced Settings here to make sure that these options are ticked and you can also choose a different formats here and other bits and where thewhere this stored but the default settings are fine stick these two boxes and hit okay and last but not least once you have things set up and is a sample project here and you want things to begin just click the start button and you'll see GSA fire up
And it's going out right now finding new targets to post links to as it finds...
13:27
and it's going out right now finding new targets to post links to as it finds them it submits a links and then later on it will actually verify if the links are live or not and you can see and we'll verify links here and you'll see this list change as it finds new links now you sometimes get popups like this appear and what this is is when it's trying to submit a link sometimes there are other fields that need filling out and GSA doesn't know which option to pick so it asks you but this can actually become quite annoying because really we want GSA to be completely hands-off and not bother us of those messages and a lot of people get stuck with this and wonder how to disable these pop-ups like we can see here we go we've got another one coming up here so how you do that as if we just hit stop
Here and come into the project and in options you can say if a form field...
14:27
here and come into the project and in options you can say if a form field can't be filled choose random and also make sure ask all services / users to fill captures so next time GSA gets offered a choice like that instead of asking you it will just choose a random and that is for that specific project only you'll need to do that in each project also in options and in capture here you need to untick this box so what happens is if the capture services need rather than work as a last-ditch attempt GSA will ask you but we don't really want that to happen in my personal preference is that it just skips over to submission moves on to the next one and just forget about it so make sure that is one ticked and that's how to avoid those pop ups if
We run the start now we won't see those pop ups up here so that is a general...
15:30
we run the start now we won't see those pop ups up here so that is a general overview of the interface how to start and stop projects at different options that you need to set up along with the different campaign specific options so let's actually take a look at creating a sample project before we do that though let me give you a quick tour of the sample project if you double click on it and you can open it up like this and not look pretty confusing at first but don't worry it's very easy to familiarize yourself with first of all on the left hand side here you can choose what type of links you want to submit so here we can say blog comments and if you click the plus here these are all the different blog comment platforms it supports and if you hold your mouse over it you can get some more details of whether you can get a do follow link or not where the link has anchor text if it
Creates its own page etc etc and you can see there's loads of different types...
16:33
creates its own page etc etc and you can see there's loads of different types here we've got articles blog comments directories documents different exploits forums guest books image comments indexes microblogs pingbacks referrers social bookmark social networks Trackbacks URL shorteners video video adult web 2 and wikis now a lot of people when they first come into here they'll they'll they'll look at something like let's have a look like they like the article section and here it kind of looks like that gsa doesn't really post too that many different article sites if you have software like SE nuke XE are for example and look at the articles you'll have a list of hundreds or maybe even thousands of different article sites to post to but when he come to gsa it kind of looks a bit underwhelming there's not not many sites here to post to but gsa actually
Works differently in the of these is a platform and a platform...
17:34
works differently in the of these is a platform and a platform can be used by thousands of different sites for example WordPress is a blogging platform which is used by millions of sites across the Internet and we can see here if people are using the WordPress article directory plug-in this will post to that platform so each one of these platforms actually has thousands of different URLs and sites behind it that you can get links from so it might look underwhelming but there is an awful lot there an awful lot of different battling variety for you to choose from and you know each of these the broken down really easy social bookmarks and and and all the different information about each different type of link so that is choosing which links you
Want to use in this window here we have to import various data and information...
18:34
want to use in this window here we have to import various data and information and this actually updates based on what we select here so if we add social bookmarks for example you'll see it's an asking us for an is some additional details like login to use passwords and catch codes and descriptions and if we on tick that again you can see it's only providing the options needed for the Trackbacks indexes and blog comments in here you have also lots of other different options and we will go through these in detail when we set up our campaign but this allows you to really fine-tune things and take some real control over your campaign and there's lots of new options being added to GSA in a past year that make that gives you much more granular control over the links that you create than it used to so that is what the actual project campaign and editing looks like let's move on to
Creating our own if you just come to new here this will create a new project and...
19:37
creating our own if you just come to new here this will create a new project and the first thing that we want to do is select the types of links we're going to use in our project now there's not a one-size-fits-all answer for this depending on the goals of your campaign and what you're building links to is gonna change what settings you use here but as a general rule of thumb if you are building links to your money site you want to make sure that you're using contextual high quality links and a contextual link is a link with relevant content surrounding it so examples of these might be if we just want tick the default options here to avoid any confusion that may be articles and social networks and wiki's and web twos
And then you may also choose to add perhaps videos social bookmarks document...
20:41
and then you may also choose to add perhaps videos social bookmarks document sharing and directories for example but in this example we're just going to keep it pretty simple and we are going to set up something with article directories social bookmark social networks web twos and wiki's all of which will provide contextual links to your site once you have set these up we need to move into these settings the first thing that you're going to add is the URL to your money site it's also worth noting if you get stuck on any of these fields just mousing over provides much more detailed explanations throughout so if you do get stuck and you're not sure everything is well explained as you can see so the URL
This is the URL or URLs you can have more than one that you want to build...
21:41
this is the URL or URLs you can have more than one that you want to build links to and if you have more than one URL in this field GSA will automatically rotate through them and pick at you know a random URL each time you can also choose to use a URL variations when it is building the links and you can see the different samples there and that basically just changes and whether it's using capital letters or not this is actually quite a good option and mixes things up really nicely so you could perhaps drop that to 10% just to keep things not not blatantly manipulated but show that variation in the keywords field these are the keywords that it will use to go out and find relevant sites to post your links to so really here you want as long a
List of keywords as you can that's relevant to your campaign separated by a...
22:43
list of keywords as you can that's relevant to your campaign separated by a comma and I already have them prepared so I can paste them in here it looks like I haven't got many in there but I actually have you just re add to that there we go you can also choose to collect more of these keywords from target sites as it goes and then use those keywords to find new targets so they are handy options to have I'm not going to use them in this example and when searching for sites to post to you can tell it to search in quotes and get more laser targeted matches and that's quite a handy option to have especially when building links to your money site now the anchor text setting these are the anchor text that will be used and
Should be the keywords you are actually trying to rank for in here so I have...
23:45
should be the keywords you are actually trying to rank for in here so I have some of those already and we can drop them in there and it's important to note this must be in spintax or whereas that is comma separated you can if you want you can use these keywords as your anchor text instead of these if you want to do that tick that box but I like to keep the control over the anchor text here and leave that I'm ticked now where this becomes really interesting is how GS they can automatically build out a natural-looking link profile that isn't over optimized and gonna get hit by penguin so you can actually tell it okay well I want maybe 25% of my links to be a partial match anchor and a partial match anchor is if we have payday loan here that's an exact match anchor but if we had cheap payday loan that would be a
Partial match anchor because it still includes our main phrase payday loan but...
24:47
partial match anchor because it still includes our main phrase payday loan but it's actually cheaper payday loan so any partially matches the anchor text so you should prepare a list of partially matching anchor text and we can see we have done that there and you can also choose to include branded anchor text which is also quite important again you can tweak the percentage but a branded anchor in in our example our site is yourdomain.com so our brand name might be your domain your domain your domain you know if this was the Matthew Woodward code UK blog for example you might write Matthew Woodward without a space and then with the dot uk' that would be my branded anchor so you can choose to use branded anchors as well I
Suggest that you do so and you can just give that a tick there and you can also...
25:47
suggest that you do so and you can just give that a tick there and you can also use LSI and context so you could take your anchor text here use the Google Wonder Wheel or scrape box for example to pull in some more related terms and drop that in here the other two options that I always tick is generic anchor text these are the anchor texts like click here view more get more information and you can see a list of the default generic anchors it comes with pretty extensive here but I always like to tick that and try and boost that up which is possible here down here another well actually I'm going to explain au citation option if you have branded anchor text to find using a citation it will instead of creating a link it will
Create just the naked text URL just mentioning your brand name now this...
26:51
create just the naked text URL just mentioning your brand name now this really helps make your profile look natural because not everyone when they write about you or publish something includes an actual link sometimes it's just the raw HTML anchor or just talking about a company and they don't link back to it so using the citation means a portion of your links will be created without a link but will actually mention your name and this indirectly helps with the naturalness of your profile so using citations a very low percentage really does help you out and you know I suggest it that you do that last but not least anchor text variations and it explains it here but like the URL variation up here that changes the HTTP sometimes it's capital sometimes it's not sometimes the first lettering domain is capital sometimes it's not exactly
The same but for anchor text sometimes the first letters capitalized and the...
27:52
the same but for anchor text sometimes the first letters capitalized and the second letters not and it really helps mix it up I like to take that and this variation applies to all of these settings here so as you can see the amount of control you have over the anchor text that's built to your site the partial matches our branding whether you use in generic terms blank citations and the anchor text variations really does allow you to have control over a natural-looking profile so I suggest you spend time setting this section up and not skimping over it here I've just used some sample content there's there's not been a major amount of thought put into that it's just to show you how it all plugs in but once that set up we can move on to the other fields next you want to move on to filling out the about yourself section now this includes some default content that you can use or you can use
Something like content machine coming to tools and the about me builder and...
28:52
something like content machine coming to tools and the about me builder and generate as many as you need really easily and then just paste it into this box here and in fact you can use content machine to automatically fill all of these fields out for you in one go and I'll show you that later on in the tutorial but you can grab some about my me content here and drop that in coming down you can define logins and passwords that are used but by default the randomized box is ticked so it will automatically create them for you website title this is used in the bookmark submissions and it's a title of your website so I have some content prepared I can drop that in and category you need to come to edit and you can either use a list of suggested
Categories here and which I might do okay or you can add some root categories...
29:51
categories here and which I might do okay or you can add some root categories here and if you use a star a wildcard it will try and match any category close to that so I'm just going to add finance and money hello it's done you can hit OK and what this will actually do sorry is when there are categories that it needs to choose it'll go through these and try and find the best match based on what you've already put in so you can hit OK there the description if you are submitting bookmarks this is the bookmark description actually can put in here the forum comment this sometimes gets used in the wiki's that we have set up you can leave it but default or create your own content to go in there just some
General thanks for the information kind of type thing in here a longer...
30:58
general thanks for the information kind of type thing in here a longer description for bookmark sites that use a long description I tend to just use the same 250 description here this may sometimes lead to a higher failure rate but for the amount of time it right takes the right to different descriptions that the time invested versus reward ratio just isn't there coming down forum nickname for word password against randomized this will automatically create users and passwords and also a forum subject but we won't be using that you can leave it at default once all of that is ready we just have a few more tabs to work through to set up our campaign first of all we have the article manager which allows us to import articles that you use for the submissions I'm gonna come back to this in a minute because there's a little quite a little bit I want to discuss here so let's jump to the options now we
Have lots of options to work through here which can be quite confusing but...
32:01
have lots of options to work through here which can be quite confusing but trust me it's pretty simple so first of all you can choose to pause a project after a certain amount of submissions or verifications so you could say I want to pause a project after 100 submissions for one day so after it's submitted 100 links it won't submit any more links until the next day and it also admittin over 100 or you can say actually I want it to pause after it's successfully verified 100 live links and you get different options here as you click through them ok so that's how you control the drip feed of the links being built you if you've setup the captcha solving services in the options you need to make sure this box is ticked and you want to
You ask all services to fill captures you can also get it to override the...
33:03
you ask all services to fill captures you can also get it to override the global retry option that we set earlier but you can just leave this for the most part if a form can't be filled remember those annoying pop-ups so we're getting before asking us for over information change this to choose random and then you won't get those pop-ups and GSA will just pick something at random and move through enable custom mode you don't need to know anything about these verify link options you can leave default if you want to there's not really any need to change them send verified links to index or services so this includes the pingers and if you have the over option set up you need to make sure they're ticked use character spinning when possible avoid this option if you're building links to your money site we don't want to be using that and you can randomly use typos and spelling
Errors in descriptions to help fight duplicate content this is actually...
34:05
errors in descriptions to help fight duplicate content this is actually pretty cool option and it makes things look much more human-like it's been done by a human and they've made a little mistake so take that box play with the percentage try to always place a URL anchor text so I always leave that I'm ticked and continuously try to post for site even a fail before I leave that one ticked if you need to use tag so you can choose use anchor text or keywords so sometimes when you submit a book market as you to tag add tags here you can choose whether to use the anchor text as a source here or the keywords as a source here anchor text is generally fine now here we get to choose in fact I'm going to minimize that to make it a little bit less confusing how to get target URLs so what gsa search engine ranker does is it looks at all of these different types of platforms and
Combines them with your keywords here to find target sites to post to and to do...
35:07
combines them with your keywords here to find target sites to post to and to do that it uses search engines so we have lots of different search engines here that it can use as the source but if you right-click and you can just say check by country for example and I tend to always just check by country and United States but if you were trying to rank as a site in the Spanish market for example you might choose Spain here United States okay and that will if we scroll through it was bit too far you'll see that it sticks the various American based search engines for us I like to always use keywords to find target sites this doesn't return less results but it returns more relevant and accurate results which is what you really want when you're building links to your money
Site remember before we were talking about in the options the global site...
36:09
site remember before we were talking about in the options the global site list where you could collect URLs that have been submitted and verified from other projects if you want to use those lists tick this box if not one ticket and you can also choose to analyze and post to competitor backlinks now this is a pretty good feature but it does have some flaws what it does is it will look at the current sites are ranking for a given keyword and try to replicate their backlink profile now it doesn't work amazingly well but it does work to some degree the drawback with it though is if you have say down here said I only want to get links from domains PR 3 and above and your competitor has a really low-quality spammy link if this box is ticked it will try and replicate that spammy link and ignore these settings it
Will also if down here you you said right I don't want to use microblogs but...
37:11
will also if down here you you said right I don't want to use microblogs but your competitor has a microblog link it will create it it will ignore the fact that you haven't got it ticked here so this option is handy but it also introduces an uncontrolled risk use that at your own will here once we have set up how to get our target URLs we can set up a scheduled posting I generally don't use this but if you want it to get more than one link from the same site you could tick that and you could change these options here to limit how many times you hit that site so an account doesn't get banned and your links deleted etc the filter URLs options which is the last set of options on this screen is very important especially if you were building links to your money site lots of options here
First of all you can choose to skip sites with more than X amount of...
38:13
first of all you can choose to skip sites with more than X amount of outgoing links on one page so if GSA says right I'm gonna build a link from this page but it's got too many outbound links already it will skip it but if it falls under that number it will build the link now there's been lots of studies and annual reviews of data and things and it tends to be on average sites have around 125 links on them in a page so you can actually increase this quite safely 200 you can also choose to skip building sites if the PR is below a certain number or not now the argument here is that if you only building links from domains that have PageRank 3 to 6 that doesn't create a very natural profile but if you build lots of links
From very low quality sites that also doesn't build an actual profile so I...
39:16
from very low quality sites that also doesn't build an actual profile so I like to skip sites with a PR below 0 now remember with PR you have n a which means Google's giving it no PR value at all it doesn't really care or you can have PR 0 which means Google has looked at it and has assigned a PR value of 0 so I like to go from zero anything below zero anything it's an n/a get skipped and anything zero and above is fine this helps create something natural you might also want to create a secondary project that only builds high PR links for example so you can get that real mix of links you can also choose to skip unknown PR if you want to retain as much control as possible you should keep this ticked and then you can say well am i checking against the PR of the actual domain or the actual page now if you use PR of
Actual page you're going to get a lot less results so use PR of domain here...
40:18
actual page you're going to get a lot less results so use PR of domain here you can choose what type of backlinks to create now I know we have these options ticked here but if you have the competitive battling stick you can have a little bit more control here and also within each of these link types are different types of Link's within link types if that makes sense so for example if which is a good example here sometimes you can create if you were creating a profile sometimes you might create a profile that has a URL link or sometimes you might create a prof profile as an anchor text link or sometimes you might create a profile it's got some contextual content on it here if you didn't want to create those types you could untick them here as well you can try to skip creating nofollow
Links and remember if you mouse over these you can see does this create a do...
41:19
links and remember if you mouse over these you can see does this create a do follow a link or not ticking this option it will try and skip creating nofollow links the problem with this is and I know a lot of people like nofollow and do follow links and etc is a natural link profile does have an element of nofollow links and do follow links so to say only create do follow links is unnatural so I leave this one ticked because you know we're trying to fly under the radar here and you can also skip sites where bad words appear and you can see this so you might even learn some of you swear words going through this list yeah you use it your your own discretion but you can add and edit an important elite word words that are bad and you
Don't want to build links from this is generally a good option to tick if...

don't want to build links from this is generally a good option to tick if you're building links to your money site and you can also do the same thing where the words appear in the URL or domain you can also choose to take to skip sites from different countries and are in different languages again use this at your own discretion next come up to the e-mail verification tab and you can see here there is already an email address in place for us but we don't really want to use this really there's three different types of email address you get what this is which is a disposable email address that doesn't require you to create an account and is loads of disposable ones for you to choose from here um the problem is that if you use a disposable email address a lot of these sites even be posting to have anti-spam measures and actually block these domains from signing up entirely so

you're gonna get a really high fail rate the next one is webmail based services like hotmail Gmail AOL Mail com for example these require you to sign up for an account and you can actually create an account here hotmail and Google Mail Yahoo for example and these are not as widely blocked as the disposable emails although you will find the some sites do still block webmail based sign ups to help protect against spam not many but some of them do so you do get a bit of a failure rate using a hotmail address for example and the final type of email address is a self-hosted one at your own domain name.com you use a catch-all in cpanel for example and that will get you the highest success rate but 99% of people are gonna be fine using a hotmail or Gmail account you can either create them down here or do what I do and I buy them like you can buy a couple of hundred of them from

Fiverr that work really well so let's add our hotmail account you just click Add and let me grab the email address and you can see it's automatically worked out the server settings for us which is a handy feature all you need to do is drop the password in down there delete the temporary email we don't want to use that delete the selected and down here you have some options I like to take wait at least 15 minutes between two logins and you can leave the rest of them default last but not least test this because if this doesn't work your entire campaign is at risk so let's just test that that login works okay and we can see everything is successful so the last thing that we need to do is add some articles with the article manager

45:20
now the article manager you need to put some additional thought into this if you're building links directly to your money site it is important that you prepare hand-spun high quality content and i recommend you check out the advanced spinning tutorial to learn how to do this properly now the article manager has quite a few different options so I'm just going to take you through the general setup quickly and those variations so assuming you've got article or articles prepared all you need to do let's move this out the way quickly is click on add enter manually and you can add the title in there along with the actual article body we just grew up that into their the summary box it will automatically use

46:23
the first paragraph for the article and we can have a preview of this here okay and you can see that I did the links in for us if you click on okay that is one article add it if you wanted to add a Nova article which I have here article to you just again click Add enter manually and we can drop the title in and also the actual article body just grab that and hit OK then down here you have some additional options now how to insert the link sometimes it will insert the link into a sentence at the bottom or within the article or just randomly add the link in the middle of the article somewhere which makes no sense or have it add no link at all if you have the sentence at the bottom we just

preview that and show you what it looks like one minute it adds it like this at the bottom this sentence here it's like a random sentence that it adds in it lacks control to be honest you don't have control much control over what is placed here and I think this place is risk if you are building links directly to your money site so what you should actually do and I go over this in the advanced spinning tutorial is actually when you spin the articles you should add the links in directly and there's a couple of ways you can do this gsa search engine ranker actually provides a handy tag for us which looks like let's paste it in here looks like this and it says a href equals percent URL percent anchor text and what it will do is it

48:27
will replace percent URL with the URL here and the percent anchor text of the anchor text here so what I recommend that you actually do is when preparing your content which I've lost here is you actually add the links in that point and then in GSA you can select to insert no link also following my spinning tutorial we'll be adding contextual links which actually help disguise what you're doing a little bit more and make it look a bit more natural where there is variation between this and the advanced spinning tutorial is in the advanced spinning tutorial I teach you to add images and videos at random you can actually skip over this step as GSA will do that for you and you can choose how many to add here so that saves you a bit of time and preparation on spinning of the content
All you actually need to do is create the article spin the text and your money...
49:29
all you actually need to do is create the article spin the text and your money site links and add your contextual links and then it is ready to add in to GSA here this is assuming that you are building links direct to your money site so you have other options here do not submit duplicate articles per account per site domain etc so I choose anywhere because we don't want a duplicate content anywhere and that is essentially your money site linking campaign setup and once that is done you can click on OK and you will see the campaign is here and if you want to rename it you can do so modify project and rename and just you know I don't know money site campaign for example anytime you want to change options just double click and

50:30
opens up here like before you have that same right-click menu to get all of this submitted and verified URLs and all the different diagrams and charts and everything like that and that is pretty much how you set up a campaign with gsa search engine ranker so now you know how to set up a campaign let's look at some of the other things that we can do way back in May 2012 I asked the GSA team if they could integrate tiered link building into GSA and as you can see straight away they came back here and said they were adding that feature which is a real testament to the GSA team a lot of the updates that come out are and new features are off the back of user requests and tiered link building is one of those that they released it was it was like a week after I requested it they built this thing so to set up a tiered link building campaign it's pretty much the same as a

51:32
normal campaign here we have got the campaign we just created so let's say we want to create a second tier of links to that we will just click new and create a new campaign and set it up as we have done previously I'm just going to enter some dummy content in there the only difference is though we need to tick this box and it says use verified URLs of another project and if you tick that you choose the project your tier 1 project which is this money site campaign and click on OK so what this will do and let's just create that click OK and give it a name so as you can see here what this campaign will do is build links to the verified links of this campaign so this is tier 1 to your money site and this is tier 2 to your tier 1 and if you want it to add a third tier again you set everything up you use verified URLs of another project and this time we would

52:34
pick the tier ok and ok again and there we go we have tier 1 tier 2 and tier 3 so using your knowledge of how to set up a campaign now you can see how easy it is to create a tiered linking structure one of the other cool features is the ability to remove links GSA has created now the problem with Google and SEO in general is they're always moving the goalposts so what works now might not work in twelve months and may in fact get you penalized if that happens you need to go and clean up your backlink profile which is a very long and drawn-out process but any links created with GSA if you just right-click on the project that created the links and change the status to active remove links that when you're running it will actually go through all the links that it is created log in and remove them there are some types of links that can't remove like blog

53:37
comments where you don't register and have control over the content once it's submitted but a lot of the links it can log in and remove them for you which is a really really cool feature now if you want to set up campaigns quickly and you'll certainly want to do this on your tears you can actually take advantage of the import function down here combined with content machine now content machine there's a much more detailed tutorial about how to use it but let me show you quickly it's already got my content prepared I can hit build an export come down to gsa search engine ranker click on export we can save that somewhere and click save and that will export it out for us once that's done okay and come back to gsa tools import data fields gsa and you

54:40
can choose which fields you want it to fill okay and you'll see straightaway it has populated all of our content and all of the fields for us which is a great time-saver when you are working on the lower tiers and if you give it a test here you can see that content in there so that's a quick way of setting up and generating content you can also use in here we have an article manager if you click on add you can search online and mix the articles so you can mix either just paragraphs paragraphs and sentences or just sentences and you can you just enter your search term and it will go out and scrape those for you and bring back and air articles you do need to set up your spin config settings here for that to work though it supports a range of different spinning software in here like the best spinner word a I
