Frequently Asked Questions

I am not getting many leads when I use the Guru SMS Crusher?
There are a number of possible reasons why you would not get the expected results.

  1. If you have been performing many searches on Google with other software or you have set the delay on the Guru SMS Crusher to a value less than 90, you may have a temporary ban on your IP address. This can last as long as 10 hours. You can typically determine if this is the case by going to Google and doing  a search. If you see a captcha box come up you can be assured that Google has determined unusual activity coming from your IP address and they will restrict normal access for a number of hours. 
  2. The keyword that you are using in your search may not have a lot of volume. A keyword like "ipod" has lots of people searching for it and lots of people marketing it. By contrast, the keyword, "blue water", may have very little popularity and will not produce as many results. When it comes to network marketing companies, you will naturally find more results for Amway than some newer, obscure and growing company.
  3. It could also be possible that there are not many phone numbers associated with your keyword. In that case it could be likely that you would be better off gathering emails instead of phone numbers. 
It is important to note that if you choose many mobile carriers and a longer delay, it will take a long time to search through all the different queries that the Guru is programmed to make. You will see a good number of phone numbers come from certain area codes.

When the software does a search with an area code from a city there will be more results versus the time when it is using a more rural area.

Ultimately, it is important to be patient and just let the software run its course. Make sure impatience does not lead you to reduce the delay for an extended period of time. In this circumstance your IP address could be temporarily banned by Google.
