    Listen, I think that somebody needs to distract whoever made Senuke from their pina coladas on the beach and tell them that they REALLY need to keep an eye on the quality of their product before it's too late.

    Senuke was, and to some degree still is, a great product. But there's a problem. Both competition, and the market are catching up with and rendering it less desirable than it used to be.

    So lets just list out all the problems that, if fixed, would ensure that people like me CONTINUE to pay Senuke's very steep monthly price and that those pina coladas keep coming...

    There simply ARE NOT enough sites to post to. I'm getting between 24 and 32 "Social Network" article directories successfully posted to... but even with a 100% success rate I wouldn't get much more. Other properties aren't much better... Senuke simply does not post to enough sites. WTF makes them think that it's cool for tools like Zennoposter, AMR, and uBot to enable me to post to 100's of article directories while Senuke yields only a handful? Do you REALLY think Google is stupid enough to NEVER catch on and devalue these 30-something sites that Senuke posts to?

    If the makers of Senuke REALLY cared about staying on top, they'd either start working 24/7 to allow people to add their own sites to post to in Senuke, or greatly expand the number of sites that Senuke default posts to. I'm talking about at least tripling what it posts to today. And if that isn't possible they need to ROTATE the sites that get nuked with each update so they don't get figured out by google.


    Look I LOOOOOVE Senuke... and I really don't want to see them fail and their brand to fade away. But if they don't keep up with the times I foresee BAD things on the horizon. So I really, really, really hope they have their guys working to evolve and improve their product so that I too don't have to leave it.

    The ability to add ur own sites are almost here. Maybe you should read on to what is happening before making a post like this...

    Why should I have to read their personal blog? What I know is the product I have in hand... and listed are the problems. And they're pretty big... so hopefully they come out with improvements soon, cause in the meantime I'm stuck in a pretty rough spot.

    i have to agree with the OP.
    I love senuke but the value of it is becoming less and less by the day and what with the advances of the likes of google it will leave it totally useless very soon.

    omida86 - you say the ability to add your own sites is ALMOST here .... Tell me what and how to value this statement? how almost? on what basis can you make this statement? i have been asking this in the forums, on facebook and as direct to Areeb as i can and what has the reply been? NOTHING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Infact i get more info from the senuke forum members then i do from the senuke team!

    Agreed with the OP ... Stop drinking pina coladas and get your thumbs out of your arses and give us something ....

    Thank you for this, I was considering a subscription very seriously and have opted to steer clear for the time being. I'll check up on this thread for updates but at that price tag, the support and development team had better be more responsive than this.

    My point EXACTLY. They need to hurry, cause while they have it "almost" here I'm still paying out the arse for a product that is "almost" worth my money. I'm the consumer... they owe ME gratitide, not the other way round.

    I also think they should consider adding more modules. A wiki module would REALLY help make them more competitive, and something closer to no-hands seo to blast the back tier with would help too.

    you know i have been using it for several months and anymore i just don't think the quality justifies the price. i say its worth $50 a month at best.

    Yeah, they could go that route if they're just gonna give up on keeping their product competitive. Cut the price to where it's price is equal to it's value... which right now you're pretty right. I'd feel more fair paying about $50/mo for what it's giving us now.

    Yeah, I'd love to see such an "add your own site" feature... my guess is it fails 90-95% of the time.

    If you all get tired of waiting, Magic Submitter has all of Senuke's features (for half the price), like campaign designer except for the keyword junk and you can add your own sites you scrape like Pligg, articles etc. already, or program different sites from scratch with the designer tools that MS doesn't feature yet. My guess is that people don't switch because its too much work to learn new software + MS just isn't marketed as well as Senuke, (thankfully).

    BTW, Alex the creator just added PR reporting, (finally), and Excel reporting of campaigns. Its getting pretty nice actually.

    I was pretty much about to post the same thing. I have used them both myself and the only thing I can see myself that is different, is that SEnuke is a little easier to use and of Course its a Marketing thing also, I don't hear to much talk about Magic Submitter. Maybe users want to keep the secret to themselves :p

    Another big reason I believe people use SENuke is they update sites often. Lets be honest here. Even if they added a way to add your own sites, a lot of people would still not use it, it would be to much work.

    Most People want something they can just load and go pretty much, that's a major reason why SENuke is still on top. Look at the success of NHSEO and such. Alex does not update sites as often, it has a designer so most of the time he leaves it on the user to fix broken sites and updates them every now and then. Now im not saying this is a Bad thing as I actually prefer MS over SENuke personally.

    Maybe they're killing off senukeX on purpose? Then after a few months, they'll release senukeOMG! and say that it's much better than senukeX on its greatest day. Of course, they'll charge more so they can go back to sipping pinacoladas on the beach. :D

    I know 4 new modules are coming, and one of them is supposedly the ability to add your own sites. Of course, it's not officially confirmed but Areeb mentioned it in the forum.

    Personally, I wouldn't pay $147/month. But lifetime license for $2000 when they were released is definitely worth it. You can easily make that money back with some time and effort.

    Senuke is the biggest overpriced garbage ever sold.

    dude be quiet (lol), same like Expert is saying, most probably 90-95% of sites still fail with this custom module, if they can't even keep their 60 or so web2.0's working that come standard with it (or replace it if it's impossible to keep it working)

    Adding new modules might take a while... but whats the excuse for not simply adding more "social network" and other sites to post to? 30-something is LAME for almost $150 a month.

    I believe there's others here who are looking, maybe make a posting in a new thread asking and you can find answers.

    4 months ago Areeb said that OCR will be working in 2 weeks. It's been 4 months and he still says OCR will be working in 2 weeks.

    So don't listen to Areeb, he has problems with date calculation.
