    Been using Get Article Pro all this while but owner seems to have abandoned it and it's getting worse by the day as it hasn't been updated in ages. What other tools\software do you use to scrape\generate your articles in bulk?

    Interested in this as well. I just cant seem to find anything that has anywhere near GAPs features. This program looks like it will do the scraping side of things http://www.licornesolutions.com/licorne-aio but it doesnt appear to do the spintaxing, article generation, file joining and all the other things I use GAP for on a daily basis.

    While using a combination of the 2 programs isnt really a problem, with the absense of the developer I wouldnt like to rely on GAP always being available if the licence servers go down!

    I was a GetArticlePro user. Even if it comes back to life I don't think I should count on it not dying again. I need more security in my incnome.

    Spinblitz seems to be focused entirely on bulk article creation. I also liked the Geeky girl in the video. There is no purchase info on the site but I found a $20 off a month coupon on another site. I registered for a free trial but they never emailed me back. NEXT.

    I downloaded a trial of Quick Article Pro. It is geared towards writing individual articles. I would buy something like that if it worked. It scrapes SERPs not article directories. It brought back useless text like shipping info and incoming search terms.

    I finally settled on SpinnerChief Elite. I am going to use it to scrape whole articles and then bulk spin them. It has a paragraph swapping feature I haven't found yet and I will hopefully. It's kind of pricey at $99US with coupon but it does some other things I like too.

    I loved GetArticlePro but it obvious I need a back up.

    I love GAP too, too bad the developer abandoned it. Why on Earth would he do that anyway? He's getting loads of sales for the tool.
    I did consider using Spinnerchief, but I already have TBS. What directories does SC scrape? EZA? GoArticles? Does it scrape titles\support proxies\do bulk scraping like what GAP does? Rep given.

    Thanks FuryKyle. I have TBS and SpinChimp too.

    I don't understand why the GAP developer has dropped out. He still has a loyal following and could make a come back. Perhaps another programmer will come along and steal his customers. I would buy a GAP clone.

    I'm just getting started with SpinnerChief so I may miss some stuff. I haven't seen anything about proxies.

    SC bulk scrapes, can mix articles and bulk spin. A sample scrape of ezinearticles has the title and author name. Like this Get Rich Quick by Mr Broke Loser. I do not see a way to automatically remove that.

    Scraped directories; Article Dashboard, Article Base, Buzzle, Ehow, ezinearticles, goarticles, helium, knol, thefreelibrary. There is an option to scrape an article only once.

    It also can scrape pictures and videos that it can randomly insert into articles. Calling it a spinner is becoming less accurate. It posts to directories and blogs, it does keyword research, it scrapes etc.

    I don't think it is as good at scraping as GAP, but then I can't get a copy of my GAP license. The tips article feature was something I was going to have custom developed for my use so $99 was a deal for me.

    I wish Senuke could work with Spinner Chief or even Spin Chimp. Combining grammatical auto-spinning with Senukes article combining would be an awesome combination.

    I did briefly look at BestSEOSuite (not SEOsuite). It has more options for customizing the scrapes but can only scrape GoArticles and EzineArticles. The article scraper is bundled with a bunch of other stuff I don't want at a price of $237 yearly, so I clicked away when I saw the price.

    I did check out BestSEOSuite as well, but it can only scrape a maximum of 50 articles, which is way too little for my needs. Will definitely check out SC, thanks for the great post.

    SpinnerChief 2 beta is available free on this forum, it has a few bugs but it is a fully working version that can do all of the above inculding article scraping.

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/buy-sell-trade/411209-spinnerchief-2-free-while-beta.html

    We are still working on the tips plugin - it is going to be cloud based, all user tips will be uploaded automatically to our server, to create a user-built database of tips.
