    This method is working great for me, and I don't see any issues with sharing it.

    1) Create Niche Wordpress site
    2) Install Article directory plugin
    3) Get your article directory included in the Article Marketing Robot public list. (this is simple if you own AMR, you just submit the URL to "tools" - "import site list" - and add your URL - the dialog will tell you if you have been successful at getting your site included.)
    4) Wait for 200 odd articles to be submitted to your site a each day.

    Issues:

    AMR is used by dodgy sorts that hang out in places like BHW, so a lot of the content that is submitted is crap, either not original, or poorly spun and not human readable.

    What you do to fix this?

    Use these plugins:

    Bulk Delete
    WP Optimize

    + if you want to be really tight, a copyscape checking plugin + a copyscape premium membership.

    The idea is to focus on a tight niche where you know all the types of keyword that will come up in articles. This way instead of having to sort through the 200 - 300 odd article each day and moderate them, you just search for your keyword and moderate the 10 or so that will be relevant, selecting only the good articles. You then use bulk delete to delete all the other articles (it has an option to delete all pending articles). You then use WP optimize to clean up the database every few weeks to stop your database getting massive.

    It's working really well for me. Most of the articles are crap, but some are good, original stuff that have been well spun.

    It's a win win, as those submitting will find good niche article sites to submit to, you you get free content.

    I spend about 10 -20 minutes a week adding my selected few articles, and for this I am getting 10-15 or so good niche articles for free.

    Easy...if you don't have AMR, you will need to find someone with it to submit your site. Or add the URL to this post and I will add it for you.

    Thanks

    Hi. Thank you for the information. Is there something similar for Jooma? I tried a couple of the RSS to article plugins, but they were not really helpful.

    This is exactly what I'm doing but I just started I can't share a result yet.
    I suggest you to install delete duplicate posts plugin to automatically delete dup post.
    and disable new user email notifications plugin to stop massive new users emails.

    Great method, I use it before when no decent spinner software available and I get lots of junks. But now I agreed that this will work!

    very useful post. I have 8 article directories and its been hard deleting duplicate content which usually ended up of me deleting the user and all his posts.

    Its a nice concept and if you want to get the most out of it, use a PR3-5 domain rather than a brand new PR0 one.
    People will submit more and more articles considering your site and authority site due ti its high PR and age.

    An excellent system you created in turning a black hat system into a total focus niche and entirely white hat. and I would think that it wold only take you 1 hour per day in the beginning.

    Are you monetizing the article directory? If so, how? Is it generating any money yet? Or is money not your goal off of it?

    I have two sites I am using this method on, one is about three months old, and starting to do very well. But I don't want to share that, as it's one of my top performing niches and I don't want to give others ideas about it and create competittion.

    I will share the 2nd of my sites I am using this method on:

    http://www.totallyrecycled.com/

    It's a green niche site.

    For this one I have only been going for 2 weeks. I think Adsense may be alright for monitization, or niche related ads CB etc, but I don't bother with that sort of thing on a project like this until I actually have traffic. For this site, I am finding that articles are getting picked up an indexed by google in the space of a few hours. I am using an aged domain, that was in dmoz, but got removed at the point I won it in a godaddy auction (lesson learnt there - dmoz removes them as the expiry date ticks over). I have done some backlink building, in the form of article submissions, and forum profiles, and I am starting to see long tail terms coming in, so all is going to plan. I guess the key is to keep the content good, and at least partially original. With all the talk of the google panda update devaluing content farms, quality is way more important than quantity.

    Have you monetized the 3 month old site? Or do you just use it as a way to link back to your money site in that niche?

    I am experimenting with stuff now. Adsense does ok + I have a good affiliate offer for that site. Also good for links to my hubs and web 2.0 sites, and money site.

    Well done and thanks for taking the time to share this. Do you keep the resource box from the articles?
