Added XXX,XXX Targets But not added?

For the past couple of days I am unable to add manually scrapped target URLs to my NOhands SEO. Previously I have even added 192K target URLs to a single profile and the log has confirmed that the targets were added and profile was updated.

But this time I have tried everything without any success. I have reinstalled the software, even tried adding URLs from the clipboard with less than 5K URL. The bottom bar indicated Added XXXXXX targets but the log is unchanged even if I leave it for over an hour.

I have tried with and without proxies and I have even tried on my PC and on my VPS.
Need to know exactly what I am doing wrong here or what I need to do to add my target URLs.

NOTE : I manually scrape targets via Gscraper and after filtering, the targets list is usually over 150K URLs

I just tested adding a bunch of targets to a profile and it worked fine, do you get any sort of warning or error message, is anything at all posted to the log or the status bar at the bottom of the tool?

It never showed any error or any thing other than 'Added XXXXXX targets' in the below bar and the log always remained unchanged.

Last night I added the targets again and left the NHSEO app running and when I checked this morning, the log confirmed that after 2 hours of adding the targets, the targets were finally added to the database. The targets file had over 250K URLs.

It all seems to be working fine know. Still couldn't figure out what caused this issue.

It could just be a case of it taking its time having to check all of the pages before adding them.

As NHSEO has strong checks built in to protect it from repeatedly spamming the same sites over and over so every page added must be checked against all pages that have been posted to previously so if you have already posted to a lot of pages and your machine is not particularly fast (an SSD will speed this up tremendously) it can take some time to check all of the pages against all other previous posts.

You can wipe all targets that were not successful from the database to prevent this taking too much time in the future by going to the Settings=>More tab and clicking on the "Database Maintenance" button, this will clear up any unnecessary information and speed up any database based task. When the DB maintenance has finished it will say so in the log, it can take some time so it is important to wait till the finish message before trying to close NHSEO as trying to force close it before this has finished but when it has finished it will help speed up almost everything.
