I thought AMR was a irreplaceable tool?

    So I am using the trial. I cant even get one out of the 500 directories to let me signup. Whats the deal? I have tested the pop3 and all that stuff and follow the directions on my author bio. Are the directories super spammed now? Do I need to buy the full version to really get a good list to submit to?

    Well it is a fact that AMR has decreased in quality.

    DOes it worth to be bought, i'm a bit unsure honestly.

    But for those, like me, who has it already, the way to go is to scrape and filter as much directories as you can and play on the mass.

    Yeesh, I think I will buy the link wheel software instead. I am tired of subscription based software though. I want to buy a piece of software like scrapebox.

    Panda lowered the value of article directories, many of which closed, and less people bought AMR, less lists were upkept and less directories exist.

    Times change, AMR still works fair with private lists but the value is less than before

    I had a lot of problems with AMR when I first started it too. I did my very first submission without even having signed up at the directories I was submitting to. It is virtually impossible to learn without some good videos.

    Some places will refuse if your introduction to the article is too large, or if you have too many links, or if you have html in the body, or if your links are in the body and not the resource box, or if your resource box is too big, etc. Get some quality videos on it, I just went to youtube and searched.

    If I remember right, I had really bad experience with the trial and a far better experience with the paid version.

    its quite depressing.

    Very few tools last forever unless the developer is willing to adjust with the IM landscape. Remember these tools?

    Automatic Article Submitter
    Keyword Elite
    Keyword Analyzer
    BlogHatter

    And the list goes on and on. The changes that have taken place with ADs have got nothing to do with Vince and AMR.

    I could not have said it better! Like Winchester said, "Times change!"

    Either adapt or die!

    For those of you who are still pining for AMR to return back to its glory days, here is what you need, LOL!

    And people wonder why certain Tools like Senuke, Scrapebox, etc.. Never die.. UPDATES, and not just updates to fix bugs, but updates to add extra functionality..

    In the case of AMR I don't think there is any problems with the tool. It's still hands down the best Article Marketing software there is, as Winchester said though - article directories in general have just taken a big hit.

    Oh well, on to the next one!

    As much as I hate to admit it I have good results with AMR. Its all about the size of your list and how you use it.

    Tips
    Spin alot: that means paragraph level, sentence level, followed by word
    scrape: scrape the holly bajesus out of the net for article directories
    forum: first off find every gd amr list you can on this forum and others like warriors, dp and random bh forums add them to you list.
    wordpress: alot of these ghetto directories are auto approve and almost all accept links in body.
    use: read cash202 walk thru here

    heres some advice on finding good footprints for scrapebox
    pay attention: sign up for a couple directories manually and PAY ATTENTION to similarities between the directories. For example user names, top posting, template design, categories, esc.. Some times the best foot print is staring you right in the face and you don't even know it. I have 60k directories in my AMR and im doing great :)

    Finally thoughts: People who fail with AMR are lazy and unimaginative. Yes this is the cold hard truth! But every day I see threads crying about first place in google with no traffic and people saying AMR is useless. Maybe its time to think about the common denominator being the problem...

    And if you still think AMR is useless just pay my friend gentoo a visit on fiverr, he has a very nice private network.

    AMR still works very well; when used properly...

    Yes, article directories got hit harder in 2011 by Panda, but it's still one of the easiest way to get diverse content-embedded links. And you're also gogin to need to put in time adding directories, as well as learning to use it.

    Check out my AMR Thread for my 'best practices' & Tips:

    As for my experience goes with AMR it is good for article marketing.
    Starting from the trial version to paid one It is superb in AM.
    Only Vince has stopped giving fresh article site list which he
    should add for getting more credit for the software.

    I have 25k sites now. and doing better with all my sites.
    you have to always change the database with fresh site lists.

    cheers

    Yes AMR is good to use but now-a-days it goes on decreasing.

    I dont use AMR since 6 months ago.. I thought it's not effective anymore, many article directories is just a junk. but, if you wanna link diversity, you should consider for buying

    Just upgraded my AMR purchase to the latest version last night, now it cannot find ANY database, no article directories, nothing. Posted something in the support forum, also nothing. Back to the search for RELIABLE and SUPPORTED software......

    I am thinking of still buying AMR, because I want the max. diversity of links and I have read that AMR is still the best software for mass article submission.
