    Now I don't think it's fair to say user error in this case.

    It is the actual link quality I am concerned about.

    Granted I'm still learning it but I've had a run with over 100 livelinks. I also hasten to add I have also been RSSing and bookmarking the last ones. Checking in SB last I checked most of them showed they were indexed from that run.

    I'm not too bothered about sign up rate since I put that down to user error.

    I'd be happy learning to increase my sign ups if I didn't think the actual links were junk.

    I was thinking about it and most of these links are pr0 which means I could have just done a crappy scrapebox blast with WAAAAY less effort and got many many more links for it.

    So I really don't understand why people give it so much praise. I'm thinking they are either stupid and don't know what is working from what is not and just praise AMR cos it's one thing they used...or they have some vested interest as affiliates like is usually the case.

    I wanted to give it a fair shot but since alot of my links are live and indexed and I have seen no noticeable serp climbs I don't see much more I can do other than get a refund.

    Also the forum is really quiet over there, plus very superficial instructions on the site, so there is the distinct feeling that after purchase I am 'left to fend for myself'.

    I want to make it work so vincey boy if you'd care to help me out like you did debbie I'd love to make it work- such that I can see tangible improvements in my serps form my efforts. I shall then amend my comments here otherwise I'll be going for that refund.

    Feeling the same way... What i do is exclude all the quality article directories and submit to them by hand, linking to my money sites.

    The remaining, low-value article directories i use to blast links to my First Layer with AMR... well... you can't exactly call it a 'blast', as i'm only getting about 50-100 Live Links (even after 3-4 weeks). Articles are properly spun on a word, sentence and paragraph level, even had some SPUN articles approved on Bukisa, which is a duplicate content whore...

    I'd pay for someone to show me how to get 500 live links from one spun article... it just doesn't work as promised here...

    I have used AMR in the past too, and i noticed that the sites i have been blasting with AMR dropped in ranks. Then i stopped using it and only submitted some manual and high quality spun articles to good directories to main link velocity.

    However, this involves some work and im not doing that very often.

    But from all the other article softwares out there, AMR is the best.
    That must be some great piece of code of a great coder, because the speed and success rate is insane.

    You really need to know how to use it....i.e. to get a good approval rate from a good list of sites....and to use quality articles that are spun (with nested spins), and are human readable. It's not a point and click application, you have to put in hard work to get results....if you can do this, or afford to pay someone to do this, you will get excellent results.

    Did anyone read the post but June on the AMR forums? She feels the same way as many in this thread and she gave a NOT SO NICE review of AMR. There were many flamers defending the software but that was typical and expected.

    Honestly I think it's like poor tradesmen blaming their tools....this is good software if you know what you doing.

    The fly in the ointment is crappy article directories... doesn't matter how an article is submitted... if it sits on a non-ranking article dashboard domain there's little chance you will ever benefit from submitting there

    Don't use AMR, but hear these complaints... when I looked over the 1000 directories in AMR I could only see a handful that might ever give you some juice

    Another point... articles submission with the goal of backlinks takes some time.

    Try Article Drip Robot by David Tang. Not easy to learn, but it works well and he maintains it. 220 directories with 80% of those the high-end type.

    So I spend more time on the qulaity of articles to submit than site content... that's the secret sauce... because they get syndicated and picked up by scraper sites. Be sure you have the correct keyword in the Title. That's how the scraper plugins work... looking only in title tag for the keyword

    MY success has been focusing this method on low-hanging variations on money keywords. Single focused niche per site. Longtail money words. They may only get 200 searches per year, but you have almost no page competition.

    Use all spun content but its readable and has the thematic keywords, good looking sites... 300 visitors a day after a year is typical. And they do convert.

    some sites have had great success... the articles we submitted a year ago will get syndicated and one or our sites pages will be #1 and the 2 to 10 serps are all syndicated articles linking to our site

    You can add your own directories to AMR and the list is more like 6000 now, not 1000. There are a heap of PR5 and 6 sites. If you add quality articles, and have a list of good accounts that haven't been spammed and banned, you will do well.

    Everytime I come to this forum I'm shocked by how much people actually know about SEO. Please go read a a basic SEO tutorial before posting something like this.

    But because I'm in a good mood I will give you your answer anyway.

    1). Related backlinks = gold ( AMR ).
    2). 100-1k outbound links ( scrapebox ) < 2 outbounds links both going to your $page ( AMR).

    And I might as well give you the rest...

    Google these 2 keywords

    angel wings tattoo designs dallas

    You should see the site that dominates the entire Serps page in Google. That's mine

    Now Google this

    angel wings tattoo designs

    First one is local geo-target modifier and that's what the site is focused on. Long Tail keywords that do get searches

    Second keyword above is a highly competitive and a global keyword

    And we never even targeted that... yet last time I looked the site is like #12 in the serps. sometimes higher and it brings traffic

    There is no duplicate content penalty so what's the prob there :D? I wasn;t getting responses over there which is why I came here.

    @ Sniper- Cool. I am just headed out now so will check back over there later.

    It's a really good point you make Jim that the directories are liekly what is letting down the software, but I think it should be the responsibility of the developers to provide good lists or have the software support easily putting them in a database or something since I don't think it's realistic to do them by hand for thousands.

    Ok I'm not gonna bash it any more till I see what's up over at the official forum.

    PS I am unaware of any holidays...I'm not in the US so have no idea of your holidays.

    The first thing to consider is that just because AMR can't find your livelink doesn't mean that it doesn't exist, it isn't perfect in gathering your links. It may be as high as twice as many real links posted as live links reported.

    You also need to be as general as possible with your categories if you want the maximum links.

    This is irrelevant since I am using SERP gains as the ultimate litmus test, which, like I say, have not shown any improvement.

    As I said though I'm not gonna complain any more before Signore Snipes gives me his good Canadian Mclovin.

    I have been using AMR past 2 weeks and started to see gains in pretty competitive SEO keywords. In fact, I am happy that my submissions land up with just 300-400 live links. This reduces my chances of getting sandboxed.

    I tried using Magic Submitter for article submissions and SEONukex and they do not compare 1% with AMR, for its mere ease of use.

    OP.. if you are working on a highly competitive niche, the solution would not lie in AMR alone. You would need to diversify your backlinks as much as possible, get your backlinks indexed and blast your backlinks with scrapebox. This is an age old solution, but really is the wayahead.

    Nice. Well in that case lets take a mclovin test and determine exactly what you are doing that is causing your disgruntlement. And that's SeƱor Sniper, but Snipes is ok. Superbad is a kickass movie btw ;)

    The first thing I'm going to check is the index rate of your articles and the uniqueness of them.

    I posted a teamviewer link on your AMR forum thread, but i'll also pm it to you.

    You seem to be saying you're about to ask for a refund because a lot of the article sites are low quality?? The software only claims to submit to the sites not maintain them and guarantee high pr and it submits them admirably.

    You're sounding like a seven year old spoilt kid IMHO.
