    For those who use sick submitter's article submitter, I have a few questions I hope you can help with:

    1) Does sick submitter provide the URLs to the articles that have been successfully posted? I want to run the livelink URLs through Scrapebox.

    2) Is it fairly easy to find and buy article directories to add to sick submitter? I'd like to be able to post ~1000 articles per run (obviously not all of them will be accepted but 1000 posted will work) -- is this feasible with sick submitter?

    I'm mainly trying to replace AMR as I've had one problem after another with it recently, to the point that it's unusable. Hopefully, that changes, but I'm looking for something more reliable now.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    I use SS (although not a great deal), but I try to keep myself up to date with it's updates etc.

    It doesn't provide the article URL's when submitted, although some of the users/coders on the forums are trying to implement this from what I have seen. I think it was either Mission or lilwebee (or something similar) that has this planned/discussed it.

    Finding directories for SS is the same as for AMR - both support the same (pretty much) sites, although SS I think may support 1 more, you need to check what templates are available on the SS forum.

    But my opinion on SS at the moment is that:

    a) It is slow. You need a good VPS to run it. My VPS connection averages at around 8-10MB constant, and it has 1.5GB Ram.. Anything higher than say 15-18 threads and it doesn't like it. It is resource hungry, and alot more cumbersome to use than AMR.

    b) It doesn't provide the output URL (yet)

    c) You can't submit to multiple platforms in 1 hit. You need to set up individual projects and then schedule them 1 after the other. IE: 1 project for AD sites, 1 project for AF sites etc.

    d) It takes longer than AMR to submit

    Everyone is experiencing poor AMR issues, and hopefully Sniper will be back to sort them out soon, although he has been a bit quiet on the forums lately. I'd still say AMR is perhaps the better option providing there is a light at the end of the tunnel in terms of the bugs, which I think there is - I can't see Sniper putting time to put out new videos and several new releases this month to not sort the current issues out.

    If not, maybe Article Demon would be a good choice. I took a look at that last night. The only downside is the captcha costs, as the developer charges double for decaptcha ($4 per 1000), and captcha sniper isnt integrated yet.

    You could look at Ultimate Demon which does support captcha sniper, although thats a recurring monthly fee of $50ish.

    Thats just my 2 cents.. hope it helps :)


    ** I forgot to mention, SS is IMO a great tool, which I don't use enough. For an all in one solution, it's fantastic providing you spend enough time scraping your own sites and getting some of the premium templates. If some improvements were made (better URL reporting etc, and less resource intensive), I would say perhaps it would be one of the better tools to use, considering the low monthly cost, and the ability to add your own sites. Compare that to SeNuke or any other 'all in one' solution which are much more expensive, it's a good choice.

    Hey Dn100, thanks for the detailed and comprehensive response.

    Yeah, I realize everyone is going through the same thing with AMR right now. I think you're probably right that Vince will work out the bugs at some point.

    I'm playing around with SS right now. It seems to at least be very stable, although I'm only running it on 5 threads right now.

    Are you sure about the lack of the article URL? I haven't gotten to that stage yet, but isn't there a URL Manager that is supposed to provide this function?

    Thanks again

    There's indeed an function on SS which you can use a few days later to check the links.
    But it only shows, if your site got approved, and not always the live link.

    So yeah, you have to go check 1by1 OR you might make yourself some harvester footprints, and check with Scrapebox. Then again, you won't find the one's, not indexed yet.

    Ah I think I see what you mean. The URL manager isn't what I thought it was.

    Hi,

    SS is very stable (only think ive ever crashed it due to cranking up the threads tbh) and is a very good piece of software i think.

    My only other recommendation, is to run it in sandboxie. The amount of times I have got a virus from using SS is unreal. Not because of the software, but generally due to the sites you are using, and sick runs itself in IE (hence the high resource usage when doing stuff), I just find it it seems to be easier to catch a virus in that than any other program.

    Sandboxie is great, you open SS in sandboxie, and it runs exactly the same, but in a 'virtual' environment. All your stuff in saved within this virtual environment, and if you ever get a virus from it (I usually find it's the fake virus scan ones, or the one which blocks net access via browsers), you just copy all your data out, delete the environment, and re-set it up. Takes all of 5-10 minutes max. I don't use SS without it tbh. Everything else I don't bother with.

    Those are great suggestions. I think I'm going to hold off on renewing my SS subscription until it provides a livelinks report.

    Fortunately, I've gotten AMR to work again. It was a similar problem to what you just mentioned. One of the sites was causing AMR to crash. Someone on the AMR forum suggested I look out for that, and low and behold...
