I bought AMR early this year and I was having very low success rates with my live links. I would only get around 70 live links. I write my own articles, manually spin everything - article, titles, summaries, resource box - all that jazz. I found my own directories from various places (including BHW) and didn't have much luck. Finally, I bought an AMR directory list of Fiverr in April and woopee - after doing my first submission with that list I got 375 live links. I did that submission on April 24 - the 375 live links report was from April 26. This week, I submitted a new article to the same directories and my success rate was worse than ever before. So today I decided to go back and MANUALLY check every one of the 375 live links from April. Of those 375 original links, 241 links are no longer in existence which leaves me with only 134 live links from my late April submission. I feel I need to re-evaluate my SEO tactics in regards to AMR and article submissions. Because if the longevity of these links lasts only a month and beyond a month who knows - then it's a grand waste of my time. If I have to scrape / purchase new directory lists every month, then that's information that I have to take into account before I continue using AMR - which I probably will continue to use but with far less expectations. If you have to be good at scraping directories in order to keep using AMR - that's info that newbies need to be aware of before getting the software so as not to be disappointed. If anyone else has tested what I have please share your numbers. And for people who seem have high success - other than saying it's all about having good content and good article spinning jargon (because I already do that), it would be good to know how often you add new directories and whether you purchase your lists or scrape them yourself?
