    Sorry - I posted this on a thread earler in response to someone upset at getting so few articles published using AMR.
    Thought it was worth a wider audience (which is a bit presumptuous I know..sorry again)

    .....
    That's your lists fault, and the fact that 80% of article sites now require manual approval of submissions after the Panda cull in 2011.
    My article sites have auto check with copyscape. LESS THAN 88% UNIQUE GETS BINNED. So "But my content is 60% or 75% copyscape" no dice. Deleted
    Here's my list, and this is pretty common;



    • Copyscape less than 88% DELETED
    • More than one link DELETED
    • Link in first 50% of text DELETED
    • No category or wrong category selected DELETED
    • Link to bad list site (auto checks about 220 million banned sites that I won't accept links to) DELETED
    • Article contains profanity DELETED
    • Article title not in title format DELETED
    • Double spacing or no paragraphs DELETED
    • More than 2 articles with links to to same domain a day DELETED
    • Any spintax in article DELETED
    • Article under 500 words DELETED
    • Article over 1200 words DELETED
    • Use of restricted HTML in article DELETED (everything other than bold, italics, underline and anchor text tags)
    • Auithor profile uses email from domain that has previously had an author banned or more than 3 submissions rejected DELETED
    • More than 2% of text not recognised by English dictionary scan DELETED
    • Any word or phrase repeated to more than 5% of total text DELETED (this is THE most common reason articles are rejected or deleted, people have not got a frikkiing clue about keyword density and no article site owner want to get slapped by Penguin for over optimization - keyword stuffing)
    • Yahoo, Bing or Google (Gmail) account used for email HELD FOR HUMAN MODERATION (includes re-doing plagirism check 10 days later - by which time it will probably fail)


    The initial checks are all carried out automatically. As you can see well over 99% of submissions are deleted without ever being seen by a human eye
    Everything else is held for personal moderation.


    My main article site is PR5. I receive over 1000 articles a day - every day. Of which (for example) 995 of them (no exaggeration) are deleted automatically. Once a week or once a fortnight I log in and look at the 30 or 40 that made it through and delete maybe 50% of those.
    So there is about a 0.2% chance (NOUGHT POINT TWO PER CENT) that your article will get published, and even then it will be a 7 to 14 day wait.

    I know FOR A FACT... from this first hand experience of moderating the shit that 99.8% of you put out. The unreadable overspun, unformatted, badly spelt, keyword stuffed CRAP that most people propagate. I make no bones and no apologies about this - it's "home truths" time.
    Most of you distribute COMPLETE AND UTTER SHIT that.. No site that wanted to keep it's rep would ever even consider publishing.

    You reckon your in the 0.2%?

    Maybe you are..probably your not.
    Not trying to rag on anyone, and I know some low PR and low traffic sites have far lower criteria (which I guess is why they are lower traffic and lower PR...who'd have thought eh? shocking!)

    This is the truth of GOOD sites that are soliciting for content now. If you want to post on GOOD sites with high pr, good rep, low Alexa and high traffic, then change your ways (unless your already in the 0.2 percentile of course - it's the other 99.8% I'm talkin to here - I know YOU'D never post rubbish then QQ when webmasters didn't publish it..would you?)

    Yes - reverse these "DON'Ts" and you have a "DO" list.
    Most of which is common sense really.

    I think you just scared away any and all article writers, especially submitters with AMR/AD/AK.

    I think article writers should be ok.
    It's plagirisers and keyword spammers that are ruined by these changes.

    Writing unique isn't hard. If you write without direct reference to another document - it will likely be very unique when you have finished - if you write with reference to another document as you go - it will be less unique - the more you reference - the less unique it's likely to be - it's not a hard concept.
    Checking keyword density. Well if you have an IQ the right side of 90 and follow 3 or 4 basic rules that's easy as well.
    Googles keyword tool GIVES YOU a list of associated words to use either as synonyms or for context - again how hard is that?
    Category - please - most decent tools allow good category choice. Tags likewise.
    As for

    Not Knowing How To Format A Title

    and leaving out {,}and|.....

    None of this is hard. It's just a bit harder than nicking someone elses work and spinning it or just nicking it wholesale and passing it off as your own.... Just a little bit harder.

    But that little bit of work is enough to deter 98% of poptential SEO or IM pro's.

    In a way that's good - leaves it so much easier for the rest of us to clean up the cash.
