    I recently emailed Article Marketing Robot's creators to highlight some concerns I had. See below:

    ################

    Hi,

    I wanted to contact you first to ask why you guys are not adding support for other article directories?

    There was a time when AMR was a useful tool, but its fast becoming a relic. To keep up with changing times, you really do need to start adding support for more article directory scripts. The current success rate for AMR is woeful and lots of people on BHW are growing tired of this and looking for alternatives.

    I hope this message is received in good will and that some action is taken on your part to help improve AMR for those who have invested in your product.

    Regards

    ##################


    To which I received this reply:


    ##################

    Hi,

    Thank you for your insight and suggestion. I will take it into consideration.

    Merry Christmas!
    Vincent Severson

    ##################

    Are you happy with your purchase of AMR?

    Would you like to see the introduction of support for more directory scripts?

    Do you expect to see the introduction of support for more directory scripts?
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    I was actually just about to buy it in the coming days, but if it's not working as the way it's advertised I may refrain...

    I do think that they need to add more support for new directories. Often times some of the directories I do add (which are fine when I check them) fail when I add them in AMR, despite the correct format.

    While the new types directories would be a nice and needed update (as it's been a bit since an update, I think), I still find AMR pretty good. It's a shame as article directories are still fairly powerful ( at least in my cases ), and they are missing out on platforms which are ripe for the submitting.

    Mind you, they still have to fix little bugs like the 'finish now' glitch on dripfed articles that resubmits from the beginning (I haven't tested that in a while, so that could have been prior to last update a few months back), or the general sluggishness of the program.

    I still use it on a near daily basis. Though I should probably note I've only known the current state of the program. So if it used to be a lot better before than now I am saddened. :(

    AMR a year ago = 1600+ submitted per blast
    AMR now = a few hundred at best

    Some people can get a thousand or more still but I haven't been able to.

    It's true, AMR a year ago it rocks now it kinda sucks. If it has a well-maintained database of article directories, including the new scripts, it would be much better.

    They key for me, is you need to constantly keep scraping new article directories and uploading them..... The one's that come preset are mostly garbage and you're lucky to get a 50% success rate.

    True, they have a large market share. To abandon it would be a foolish act on their part.

    Vincent on vacation since ... I don't know, probably for 3 weeks already. There is no real support from him at the moment.

    Current success rate is damn low. Now I only get around 100 approved articles per blast. He must give some facilities to remove duplicate directories, to save category list etc

    I wish there was an alternative application for posting articles. Article Marketing Robot is simply a useless tool for me.

    I would like some new features that would allow us to trim down directories, like check for google index and stuff like that. Apart from that the stock list is useless, if you are not doing it already, please scrape new directories or buy a list from someone.

    I don't mind the hard work.

    Out of a list of 25,000+ I get less than 50-100 articles.

    Out of the 100, only 10-15 are PR 1-5

    Anyone have any good footprints for article directory searches? The one I have been using are giving shitty results.

    It's definalty got its bugs, it's reporting is not right at all and he needs to fix that issue, some people might have loads of links but amr isn't reporting this!

    If you use re same accouts for submission and your article doesn't show on the first page then it shows as not live, infact it is!

    I think amr is a great tool but it does need to iron things out, when vince brings out updates he normally goes above and beyond I.e spinable authors but we will always have a teccy style customer service unfortuntly

    Anyway you slice it, AMR is still the best tool for the job with no decent alternative. The much lower success rate has nothing to do with the tool IMO and much more to do with the fact that the Panda forced thousands of webmasters to close down their article directories.

    With that said, it sure has its flaws and I would love to see more article directory types added, more accurate reporting, etc.

    Tried it using multi permutations and basically its the biggest waster of money since the Titanic, its fu ckin pants. It needs serious attention. I have a huge list of directories and tried differant approaches, submitting 2-3 every 24 hours etc and no go. Move on to something else, unless this is fixed your wasting your money
