    Before I rant like a dribbling lunatic about the frustration and time consuming tool - I KNOW you will post something to make me understand that I have not wasted my money or mor VALUABLY my time in working with AMR.

    My experience and review will be withheld until someone can tell me how many submits they are getting -

    Here are my stats

    Almost a whole day sitting like a moron entering captchas to register with directories, resulting in 10% of the 5k sites accepting my registration..huh? Hang on.. I haven't even spammed you yet?

    90 mins watching how to videos - of which there are not many.

    90 mins writing each article x 9

    90 mins or more spinning the F*&*& out of each article in the clever spinner

    days and days and days of captchas for each article on a timed rotation for submission..

    Amount of articles spun - 9 x 150

    Amount submitted - 9 x 150

    Result - 12 submitted directories.

    ---

    Granted if the customer service apathy diminishes and I get some love and hand holding I will gladly rebuke any inferred negatives... but boy am I f*&* pissed off...

    12 fucking 12... !!!??????? 12 ????? Seriously 12?

    My cat could get more article backlinks than that and shes dead.

    Is your cat for HIRE?

    i just did an AMR blast in the demo mode. 500 directories in the list.
    after sign ups and then submissions-
    the end result was a very low number of articles posted with respect to the 500 list. I'd have to go check the actual number

    hahahaha are you sure you read through all the instructions?

    Get deathbycaptcha and set it up into AMR, it'll make your day!


    I just got the tool and the best I have so far is 780 submits. I've got some really good results with it so far.

    So...rather than submit to 5k directories, you chose to submit to 150 and were surprised that you didn't have more successful posts?

    Once you spin the article you don't need to run spun copies. Just put the copy with spintax into AMR and it will spin as many copies as it needs.

    Only a portion of the directories are auto-approve. The more you submit to, the more will get posted (obviously). The rest may get posted over time.

    If your articles are too short, some directories won't take them. If your summaries are too long, some directories won't take them. If you don't chose the right categories, some directories won't take them.

    It takes a bit of trial and error to get your articles the right length to get submitted to the most amount of directories.

    The fact that you're getting less article submissions than a deceased cat speaks volumes about your skill level of operating automated software.

    Even the most basic of users get many hundreds of submissions just by clicking "submit".

    And why are you entering captcha's manually? You know they have integrated decaptcher support right? Entering captcha's manually is a fools game.

    I used it quite successfully but have since turned to outsourcing. Just buy some submission on Fiverr, that's probably better suited to you. You'll be less frustrated, I promise.

    I filled out CAPTCHAs for 10 minutes before I realized that it was the worst use of my time possible.

    $10 in a Decaptcher account will make the submission process completely hands off for your next 10-20 articles. Is $10 worth 10 hours of your time, my friend?

    Every automation program you use (generally speaking) is going to take you a couple days or even a couple weeks to really master and understand completely.

    Your best bet is to google the sh!t out of AMR/Article Marketing Robot and restrict your results to this good ol' forum. It's how I learned Scrapebox/AMR/BMD

    LOL are you serious? had you spent 5 minutes in Help - Instructions, I am quite sure you would have realized that AMR supports two captcha cracking services, plus the author account creation tips that are there. I have a feeling you haven't contacted support.

    My cat plays fetch. I wish it could program.

    I had a similar result (though I used decaptcher and did not waste as much time as you) but I submitted to a ton of places and very few articles got posted. Tried Article Demon and had better results with less fuss. Paid a lot more for AD but in terms of time, it was worth it.

    Im with the OP

    I wish people would stop talking about how many successful submits they got - that means F*** ALL

    What counts is how many get accepted - and it would appear that the fact is as follows

    This program is FU***** FANTASTIC - but no BASTA** can be bothered with their article directories anymore - so you get naff all links.

    Also - theres NO INSTRUCTIONS ANYWHERE explaining how to get new directories.

    The above two facts make this option for getting links a pile of frog bollox.

    Tips and advice:

    - Get a capcha breaking service (I use deathbycapcha as it is cheapest)
    - Article minimum length before spinning 400-500 words. When spun, sometimes the word count will go up or down upon submit, so don't just do 400 words and expect to get most submissions accepted
    - I use a seperate program to spin, but AMR is ok for this. Perhaps looking at some auto spinning services, I know royalmice on BHW has a service for this which is fairly cheap, although I haven't used it.
    - For categories, I check each template type (for example, ams, ads etc sites) for a category of which my article will fit into. This decreases the category mismatch error.
    - I usually enter a short sentence for my summary box
    - Use a non free email account (for example, use an account from your domain, not gmail, live, aol etc).
    - Use less threads - using 40 threads is fast, but will result in more failures. Either turn down the threads, or highlight the failed sites which have unknown or timed out errors and re-submit again.

    From using those simple tips above, I get around 250-400 live articles within the first day (yes, live articles not just submissions). Within a few days this goes up to around 600 or so. I end up submitting on average to around 2000 sites.

    AMR is a good tool if used right, check out the official program forums for some other user information on the tool.

    I don't have scrapebox or anything like that, but i simply found sites using a free google scraper tool I came across.

    Search for footprints like:

    "powered by article friendly"
    "powered by article dashboard"
    "powered by AMS"

    These are just basic site footprints, but there are posts on BHW with scrapebox footprints, do a search for it and you should get some more ideas.

    blasted today with new account, registered to ~1100, 880 was succesfull registerations, submitted my article and it submitted to 500 directories easily, rest was errors like "category not found"....

    Besides that i made money back last month when i bought the damn thing so i'm loving it so far... Problem your having is that your possibly using public emails? gmail,hotmail or yahoo which wont get so good success rate as email from your own domain.


    AMR is not the culprid, you are :)

    I'm kind of surprised that you were only able to register at 500 directories. Like Dn100 said earlier, you shouldn't use a free email account. And definitely get a captcha solver, I felt like I had fucking carpal tunnel typing in those little bastards.

    You should reset your internet connection, it is most likely your reason for bad success rate... programs like these usually jams wlan traffic easily :) Had a same problem moment ago but i re-plugged my wlan and now it works again.
