    Bought amr recently and its just a headache! Download & scrape list after list then wait til the end of eternity for it to import only to have a horrendous # of new directories an even more woeful # of successful article "OK" confirmations and a down right shameful # of live links.

    I bought amr to try to cut cost and take my SEO to the next level. However, this POS requires so many man hours its becoming a burden and a colossal time vampire.

    What else is there that I can use that will do what AMR does without the headache?


    last question: My 60 day money back guarantee is still not up, should I get my money back??

    Sofar I don't see any equivalent tool to AMR. Registration will take some time.. Submission will be quick. Don't ask for refund. Create many accounts initially.. Later submission will be breeze!

    Well, I would not say that I have tried all possible solutions for article submissions, but I already had a lot of experience with Allsubmitter and found that buying a specialised submitter tool in addition to having a great all-purpose submitter has its benefits, namely:

    - it's easy to feed this software with new lists of directories, either if you scrape them yourself or look for list of article directories with Google
    - you don't have to bother with registrations, confirmation e-mails, etc.
    - the bulit-in link checker is also quite useful, you will not have to check links manually ever.

    So all in all, this is not a perfect tool, but still a good compromise in complexity, features, and the amount of time you need to spend by learning and actually using it.

    You kind of jumped on the bandwagon late with AMR. It's not what it used to be. Depending on your budget my advice would be to use a service for your article marketing needs. I like article ranks myself.

    As far as the refund is concerned, you're the only person who can make that decision. It's still able to build a few hundred links on each run so whether or not that's worth what you paid for it is something you'll have to decide.

    Well, kind of agree with you, I myself see the whole "let's make article directories" then "let's flood them with thousands of articles using submitters" movement unsustainable on the long run, but it is still kind of working, better than link directories IMHO.

    Article directory's submissions have very little value for SEO, incontent links from blog networks are 2012 SEO.. And of course home page links.

    Gonna have to disagree with you there, people have been saying article directory links were dead since 2008 yet I still see many people ranking for semi competitive keywords to this day using AD links exclusively.

    Same thing goes for forum spamming, people keep saying it's dead as well but I still have sites that I ranked using Xrumer which have not been affected.

    Call me crazy but I am really starting to think that some of you guys base your opinions on what does/doesn't work on what the popular SEO crowd is chanting at the moment and not off of proven tests/results...

    I wouldn't get a refund.Yes registration takes time,in fact doing it right takes days because all the confirmation links don't get emailed straightaway.
    Buy a decent article directory list from someone here or fiverr.

    Learn to use it properly,automation is only one step,you need to learn how to use it effectively.
    I haven't used mine for a while but that's because I have been diving into scrapebox in a big way I'd never get rid of AMR it has alot of uses if you learn it.

    For your own sites filter our any site under pr4,go for quality,for web 2.0's nothing under PR1.
    Write quality articles and don't spin them,write more articles.I used to submit the same quality article to 5-20 directories over 3 days,it looks like the article is good and other sites are stealing it.
    Not done it for a while as I haven't needed to but I will be firing up AMR again soon to find new ideas with it.

    If you use any automated tool in it's simpliest form you will gain nothing to very little.

    I haven't seen any substitutes but there are some good tips around here how to make best use of it, I suggest you check into it a bit more before refunding. Don't expect it to 'take your seo to a new level' all by itself with one crappy blast, you need to incorporate it into your overall strategy.

    There are a few important things to keep in mind for AMR. There are many, many thousands of websites that perhaps at one time functioned as an article directory. By now they are abandoned or just broken for one reason or another. Some owners don't know how to properly run them as well. Also, there are many more thousands of sites that fit the template for what AMR uses. So, you'll end up scraping tens of thousands of sites that can't possibly work.

    However, if you follow all of the suggestions on the AMR forum and on this forum you should be able to get in excess of 1500 sites that you can successfully submit to. But, there is also a caveat with that which has been true for over a year. Not all sites that accept a submission will eventually post it.

    Bottom line is that AMR in its current form isn't the beast it was last year, but it could be again depending on what kind of updates it gets. I can confidently say, though, that you should be able to easily make back the $80 or whatever and then some within a month or less depending on your skill level.

    What's happened this past year is bad for all of article marketing. It's not strictly an AMR problem. It will probably never get better. The best thing to do at this point is keep article marketing as a tool to use, but to start depending more on other methods before google nerfs those too.
