Building GSA SER Campaigns the Smart Way

This post will be short but useful. I wanted to show you the smart way to use Kontent Machine with GSA SER.

Since we released our API and Sven added it in GSA SER you no longer have to export text files. Here is a quicker method for doing that:

You will need to create your Kontent Machine campaign and upload it to the cloud. To see how you can do that check out this tutorial – Managing Cloud Campaigns.

1. Open your campaign in GSA SER and go to Tools -> Auto Fill -> Kontent Machine -> Use API

gsa api

2 .You will need to paste your Kontent Machine API key. There are two ways you can obtain it:

api key

– Clicking on the label Cloud Campaigns in Kontent Machine. Just click on the API Key in the lower right-hand corner, and it will be automatically copied to the clipboard.

cloud campaigns management

– Going to your KM member’s area and navigating to the API tab

After you paste the API key and press OK, you will see all your cloud campaigns. Select the one you want to work with, choose the fields you want to fill, and that’s it.

Your GSA SER campaign is ready to be run. Simple, wasn’t it?

We are currently working with a number of tool developers to integrate the API into their products as well. I will keep you updated.


UPDATE: If you want to add just articles to an existing GSA SER campaign follow these steps:

– In GSA SER, select your campaign and go to Article Manager

– Click on Add and select Kontent Machine

– Paste your API key (it will be there if you have used it before)

– Select the KontentMachine campaign you want to pull content from and click OK

articles manager

GSA SER will get 10 unique articles per request.

    if i use the API cloud->GSA SER approach, how can i change the GSA SER Settings, which i normally have in the EXPORT dialog, like for example “Replace all URLs with %url%”? HAPPY NEW YEAR btw..

      Happy New Year, Joerg!

      You can do that in the window where you are setting up the anchor text and URLs. You just need to put %url% for URLs or any other tokens you need.

    When setting project GSA, it has 2 part to upload file: pdf for Document Sharing submit and video file (avi, mp4…) to Video submit.
    When Build&Export or Send to clout of Kontent Machine, does it have 2 that file? Or any tool of Kontent Machine to export that file ?

      KontentMachine doesn’t generate and export video files and cannot send pdf’s via the API. However, you can export the content in a pdf format and load it in GSA SER.

    So busy setting up the infrastructure I haven’t had time to use all my tools, including Kontent Machine and GSA SER. LOL. Thanks for the tutorial Kontent machine team, I will be using in the future. Please understand you have customers like me that just haven’t had the time to use your tool, so don’t forget about us.

    Definitely should work something like this out with the guys behind Ultimate Demon (Edwinsoft).

    As far as I know from the experiences of people like Scritty, they’re really co-operative as well..

        The ability to do this adds a whole lot of flexibility to SEO. Imagine, as long as you know the address and name of your server, you can log in anywhere at anytime from any PC (say via Remote Desktop) and run your campaigns calling down the content from the cloud. Install GSA on a new server? No worries, just call it down from the cloud.
        My VPS have great speed in themselves, but when they are communicating with my desktop for large files – it’s a PITA. Not any more – at least not for Kontent Machine content.
        Really good feature guys 🙂
