    Have any of you guys used Traffic Bug @
    Code:
    http://www.traffic-bug.com/
    I just signed up for the free trial like 5 seconds ago, but was wondering if anybody on here has actually used it or had any kind of results--good or bad?

    The software is supposed to bookmark for you and submit to RSS directories, search engines and directories. Is it similar to the LinkJuicer or something else? I love the LinkJuicer, but if there was something that did the directory subs and RSS subs, I might consider switching.

    I've used it. It definitely does do directory submissions and RSS feed submissions. As for bookmarking, they've acknowledged recently that many of their accounts were spammed and suspended. (Unlike the Link Juicer, they don't ask members to set up any accounts. All bookmarking accounts are set up by Traffic Bug, and you don't have access to any of them.)

    They say they've moved to a much more capable server with many more IPs that will allow them to create 100,000 new accounts and submit bookmarks much faster. They're transitioning all members to that system in the near future. They also imply there are measures to prevent the spamming and suspensions from happening again.

    Remains to be seen, but I think they're on the right track.

    I have used the free trial in the past. Never seen any bookmark traces of their efforts within 6-7 weeks. With TLJ I saw at least 5-6 bookmarks after 2 weeks, although they spread 80 already. I am still very cautious if these automatic services can work.

    I just put in a campaign but haven't really seen any results yet. I think I heard they are doing a lot of maintenance on the software. It would be cool if it worked.

    I was using the free trial version. Very disappointing and extremely slow customer support.

    I've used them before(30 day trial). Bookmarking and submission was very slow, I don't really think that it made any difference to my SEO or anything, I wouldn't spend any money on them if I was you.

    Meepp.

    Wow. thanks for chiming in everyone. I guess I'll use the free trial and see what happens, but I prob won't renew because of the bugginess of it all.

    Hi
    I used their trial pack on one site and did get some mails seeking confirmation from some places they had submitted, but am not sure to what extent their efforts were responsible for improving page rank

    Used the free trial, but like others above, didn't see too much in the way of tangible results. You'll get a nice email every week saying how much "time saved" you've received due to their efforts, but so far as I can tell after 40 days, the only time saved is the time I would have spent spamming and getting suspended or banned.

    I did get to confirm a whole butt-load of directory submission confirmation emails, which was nice. But I thought I was signing up for a full service kinda thing, not simply a directory bomber.
