Article Demon by EdwinSoft

107 replies
Very Cool! ...the New Article Demon Software was just released today from the creators of Bookmarking Demon and Blog Demon. I'll most likely be purchasing this software title since I love the other two demon programs so much. Has anyone actually had a chance to use the software and can provide a personal review yet? One great thing about Edwinsoft is you never have to worry about getting free updates for life...they are very good at staying on top of everything.

Please provide any info, reviews or experiences you have with this cool new article software tool!

    Hey Sparkie:

    I know what you mean. I own Bookmarking demon and it is a super program. I would venture to say that they don't come out with a lot of products, but when they do, they are superior to anything out there. best thing of all is that they can be bought for a one time purchase price, none of that monthly fee stuff!

      I have bookmarking and blogcommenting as well.

      So would Article submission demon be a good replacement for something like UAW? You won't have to pay monthly for it, I guess.

    I didn't post a link to their site but just go to their regular website and you'll see all their products, including the new Article Demon released today 10/27/2010. The sales page looks awesome...a ton of new features you diffently don't see in the other article software programs out there...I'm in!

      I like the ability to spin the article right there. Hopefully it'll have a good list of article directories that we can use. Doubt EzineArticles will be available.

        I believe it comes with 100 Top Directories at first, but it also has a feature where you can ad as many directories as you like (not sure but it might also search for related directories to your niche)...however all account set ups and submissions come with captcha solving capabilities. The spinner also has a feature that saves and remembers synonyms so they can be used again...kind of like the feature within "The Best Spinner"

          What would be really cool is we could have some collective database from various users, like the Best Spinner.

          Fair enough. When I first bought the Robot, it had 1300 odd directories. As of this morning it had 1693 directories, meaning that it is constantly being up dated as well.

          That doesn't mean that either prog is better (or worse) than the other, it means that I'm happy with what I've got so there's no need to buy another program that does the same thing.

          All the best with your efforts.

            It looks promising - but owning Article Marketing Robot, to say the "Demon" programs are superior is a joke.

            No offense, but AMR has EzineArticles, ArticlesBase, and other directories that don't follow a template, AND AMR offers MORE templates than AD does.

            Granted, I don't think AD is a joke or bad program - but AMR is top notch at about 50% of the price.

            And correction: AMR has 1900 directories.<<==I'm an idiot - it has 1695 or so. Whoopsie.

            There are very few tools I'd say come near AMR in terms of overall impact, and after using it, I can say without a doubt it'll hold its own and then some. Vince is a mad scientist constantly improving - he's not "edwinsoft," but I could care less about the brand.

            The only thing that the brand name loyalty does is makes you a mark for the brand. It's like always buying a Toyota...sorry, it's not the way to run a business or make a decision, and it's for that very reason that EdwinSoft can charge three digits at a whim.

            But let me also say, for the record - it sure looks promising. (Being ranked in #1 for a number of terms with AMR, though, I'm not moved to pay the extra fifty bucks!)

            Here's a challenge: anyone who wants to pony up the extra $50, buy AMR first, use it, and then come back to this issue.

            I think you'll be $50 richer and ranking really well!

            All that being said - you've all inspired me to write a review...might as well make money on the loyalists. : )

    1 question: how many of these directories that you can submit to through the software are actively managed by the sites owner? Kind of pointless to be able to submit to 1900 directories if the articles take weeks or minths or never get approved.

      I think ArticlesBase, Article Dashboard, Ezine and GoARticles are pretty well maintained.

      The other thing about AMR - it uses more scripts than EdwinSoft's Article Demon. The thing that gets me is the brand name mumbo jumbo. I'm a loyalist myself - I swear by Magic products by Krulik - but when AMR came out, I had to admit it: it was a better tool than MAR.

      Edwinsoft makes GREAT tools - don't get me wrong - but if you look at the targets, AMR has all those same scripts and then some, including the top directories (Ezine, GoArts, ArticleBase, etc.).

      I'm not buying it - there's no point. I'd really, really urge you all to check out AMR - I think the discount is still active, not sure - and use it for the trial period.

      I bombed 5 sites, and every one had massive improvements in ranking. Whether all 1000+ directories are monitored or not is pointless to me - it takes literally 45 minutes to an hour tops to blast them all (counting the time to spin) - the result is top ranking.

      Oh, and an extra fifty in my pocket.

      I just really do NOT understand the need to pretend EdwinSoft is "prettier" (not your quote) or whatever - then again, it's not my fifty bucks I'm spending on it.

      For the record - I don't doubt that Article Demon will prove to be a decent product, but with more targets front loaded, and more scripts available, and an industrious developer (Vince isn't paying me to say all this) - I have full confidence in AMR and zero need for (another!) article submitter.

      AMR is constantly getting improved, and a proven product. Myself, I found Bookmarking Demon to be a confusing piece of over-done software, and preferred SocialBot to it (though I own both, and use OnlyWire on top of all that).

      I'm not "hating" Edwinsoft, but they lost me at BMD. This latest product would be interesting if I wasn't using AMR and finding it to be a superior product to everything else I've used to submit articles.

      Why would I spend fifty bucks to get a brand name, to a company whose software was entirely too confusing the first time around?

      Tell you what: with the extra fifty bucks: buy more domains. Buy some PLR...or buy your wife (or mom, or daughter) a nice night out.

      I can't, for the frugal life of me, see why anyone wouldn't want to keep fifty bucks - there isn't enough "cred" in remaining directories left in those scripts to warrant that as a selling point.

      In other words: I don't think that being able to add more targets is that big a deal, when likely EdwinSoft already loaded their tool with the top directories using those scripts. (purely my theory, of course)

      You fans of Edwinsoft, have at it. The rest of you, I'd appeal to your common sense. AMR rocks.

    Interesting how this is an Article Demon Review thread yet Article Marketing Robot purchasers/supporters are posting here in this thread about that product with the AMR software creator(SniperSoftware) coming in afterwards and posting thank you's under their posts...coincidence ?

    Listen guys, Article Demon is brand new today....plently of new features and updates will be coming without a doubt. If you look at the BookMarkingDemon site you'll see pictures of the transition from Version 1 to Version 5...so huge it's almost like a completely new product.

    However, I have to say that out of the gate, Article Demons Interface already looks much better compared to AMR's interface.... It makes Article Marketing Robot look like a homemade ubot platform design. I know it's the function of the software that counts but I'm sure Article Demon will be way ahead of the game(if not already) once it's been out the same length of time as AMR...probably sooner. As for now...Article Demons visual interface already looks a lot better thans AMR's and it's only 12 hours old

      I think you were the first to mention AMR in this thread...

      Also, they look to be very similar tools so obviously people will want to compare their features.

      Edit: I should add I have AMR and I think it's a great tool so far, however I do like the feature of demon that lets you add your own directories that use certain platforms, I think being able to have your own customized list of directories is beneficial for a few reasons and better than everyone mass posting to the exact same list.

        Does anyone know how difference is the directory list between AMR and ArticleDemon?

        I have AMR and it submits to over 1000 article directories.

        If ArticleDemon has a very different list, then I will give it a try.

          I use their bookmark demon and know well about the quality of their program. Hence I have no hesitation in purchasing the same. Just bought it.

          P.S.: I also own AMR, but both these programs have their respective strong points and a professional should be prepared to offer all the best to his/her client... utilizing two programs if required for the same.

      Correct me if I am wrong here but when reviewing a product aren't you supposed to compare it to other similar product so that spectators can make a more informed decision on which one will work best for them?

      This is why people get caught up wasting so much money on crap products. Because it "looks" good. I suppose Blog Comment Demon is better than Scrapebox because looks better as well?:rolleyes:

    BMD did have auto creation. Unless you were using a version prior to 5. AD does as well, watch the videos first.

    Look guys...If you feel that AD has more value (at an admittedly higher price), that's great. If you prefer AMR, great. I may try AD a bit later, but am personally happy with Vince's software. The point is: use what you use and what fits best for you. Don't argue over something that, when you're standing at the Gates of Heaven and your time is done on Earth, will ultimately be meaningless.

      It would be interesting to see what AD does that AMR doesn't, but it would be difficult to find AD doing half the things AMR does as it is the most feature rich submission software on the market with features you find nowhere else.

      There is no debate that at the moment Article Marketing Robot is the top article submission software on the market. I think competition is a good thing as I'm sure the consumer will benefit from it and will push developers to develop more features and further improve the software.

      I actually agree but don't with your comment - I agree that in the end, it won't matter which you use to rise to the top, which would be totally relevant if we were on a religious forum, and that was even the subject of debate.

      I'm a Christian myself - but here's the thing: if you see your neighbor convincing everyone on the block that paying too much for a Kraft American "Cheese" slice is a good idea - when Kraft itself is selling them at $50 cheaper - you're telling me you wouldn't say, "Um, guys -- you're wasting your money. It's the same "cheese.""

      Personally, religious affiliations aside (far off to stage left) - when anyone is talking SEO products, and if I have anything to offer - why not jump in? It's not pointless - I feel like people need to know from someone who's honest that:

      1) A brand name doesn't make a better tool (I could be wrong on this, of course).

      2) Spending $50 to get LESS targets (in terms of scripts) makes no sense...

      3) I think I can save you the hassle and the $50...

      I dunno. I would rather, if I was on the other end and making a decision on this, I would much rather have someone say, "Don't buy it - this tool is superior, and cheaper."

      I feel the same way about Magic Submitter (current version) versus SENuke - which is only meant to illustrate where I'm coming from.

      Anyway: I'm with all of you who are going to put the two to a head-to-head. That would be a very good test, especially if more than just one or two could do it.

      Hopefully there are some takers - I'm not buying another submitter until Vince stops making his rock.

    OK, I've tried both softwares and here's what I think:

    Article Demon (AD)
    Pros
    • Clean user interface, the calendar scheduling is very neat
    • More comprehensive reporting
    • Able to setup pen names (Important to Article Dashboard)
    • More accurate category targeting (Lesser chance of submitting to wrong category)
    • Auto-creation of accounts
    • Allows reposting on failed directories
    Cons
    • I can submit to only 150-200 directories on average
    • Quite a bit of preparation is needed before you can finally submit
    • Submission seems to be slower

    Article Marketing Robot (AMR)
    Pros
    • I can submit to 500+ directories on average
    • Faster, simpler setup before I can submit
    • Cheaper by $50
    • Submission seems to be faster
    • Auto-creation of accounts
    • Shows how good are the directories with "Health Status"
    Cons
    • Looks like every button is on the same screen, a little confusing at first
    • No proxy setting
    • Only one decapcher service available
    • No pen names setup
    • May have higher chance of sending to wrong category
    • It will create a cache HTML file for every submission you make. It can clutter the hard disk
    Conclusion
    AD has a more consumer-friendly software but it really lacking in the number of directories it has. If it has over 1,000 article directories I would really think it is a winner. Perhaps AD is still new, which is why they don't have a lot of directories but I will definitely keep a look-out on new development of AD.

    AMR is obviously a software developed by a hard-core developer, which explains why it doesn't have a friendly interface. The submission is faster and it is has a lot of directories submitted. It's strange why AD does not have proxy servers as some of the users will have higher chance of not able to submit due to IP blocking.

    If I am one who believes in submitting to as many directories as possible, AMR would be my choice. If you are one who wants better management of the submission, AD would be your choice.

    So, which one will you choose? You decide.

      Hi Joseph,

      Thanks for the great review.

      Any idea what kind of quality are these 150 - 200 directories that AD submits to?
      {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[2791881].message }}
    • Profile picture of the author James Hussey
      Joseph - thanks for the review, there are a couple of questions:

      1) I'm not sure why you can only submit to 500 directories? That sounds really low - my submissions range between 850-1050 (not sure why it changes).

      2) The HTML files in the cache are cleaned in AMR as frequently as you want - I usually get rid of them after submission and keep the master spun versions (just a tip).

      3) You mention the category accuracy - I've found no trouble with AMR unless you only type in part of a category, like "bus" rather than "business and finance" etc.

      Anyhow - one last question re: Article Demon: (what Wrays just said)

      What are the PR ranges of the article directories? Does it have "brand names" such as Ezine, etc? (Just a general question about the number of higher PR directories in it.)

      Thanks for taking the time.

        Well, that was just based on my first initial testing. I only managed 500+ submissions. The reason is because I was using Hotmail. When I changed to my domain name email, the acceptance rate goes up. Last try was 700+ submissions made.

        AD still stays at 300+ submissions. The reason is, of course, lesser directories.

        Yes, I know you can clean the cache but if a user don't know, it can clutter a lot. That's just for me to mention only.

        As for category accuracy, yes you can increase the accuracy, only if you know how to use all the 6 category boxes. However, there will be misses when you have a keyword like "home". Is it about home improvement, real estate, or family? Ad seems to be clearer on this.

        As for the PR, I haven't checked in detail.

        All in all, I have to say that AMR should win AD based on the fact that it has more directories. However, AD will win AMR based on the interface and the additional features that AMR is missing.

        1) I'm not sure why you can only submit to 500 directories? That sounds really low - my submissions range between 850-1050 (not sure why it changes).

        2) The HTML files in the cache are cleaned in AMR as frequently as you want - I usually get rid of them after submission and keep the master spun versions (just a tip).

        3) You mention the category accuracy - I've found no trouble with AMR unless you only type in part of a category, like "bus" rather than "business and finance" etc.

        Anyhow - one last question re: Article Demon: (what Wrays just said)

        What are the PR ranges of the article directories? Does it have "brand names" such as Ezine, etc? (Just a general question about the number of higher PR directories in it.)

        Thanks for taking the time.

        JamestheJust, what are you talking about here? How to delete the HTML files in the cache? I went through all the menu in AMR but can't find anything about deleting HTML files.

        Please shed some lights..... THANKS!

        PS: Sorry, I ask AMR quetion in AD's thread... just this one I promise...

      Do you have to select the category for each article directory that you want to link to or does it accurately guess the category on it's own.

        You have to select the category once only, and the software does the rest. However, in the event that some of the directories you have selected does not have that particular category, the same is notified to you and you have to enter a separate one manually.

        To clarify, AMR will ask you for up to 6 keywords related to the niche. It seems like it will select the best category based on the 6 keywords.

        For AD, you enter the keywords and it will display the list of keywords for EACH article directory. You will run through and make any amendments.

          Actually - that's not really accurate on AMR. On AMR, there is an automatic wild card feature, so if you're shooting for business and finance, one of your spaces can be "bus" and the software will select from the list at every directory.

          To be more accurate, you have 6 slots to clarify and narrow down your niche, but the tool's category selection is the best I've had the chance to use in terms of accuracy and ease.

          From what you describe of AD - sounds like more work.

          So: did you run anything through AD yet? Submission rates or anything of that nature?

    Thanks you guys for a great discussion - I'm definitely keeping my $127 and spending it on some content, spun articles, and the like. You've definitely convinced me Article Demon is not worth the purchase - my money doesn't know if it's being spent on a brand name or simply staying put because AMR has yet to be out done.

    All the other bells and whistles - like spinning pen names and using proxies - sound so good (when you're forum or social bookmark or comment spamming) - but not when you're submitting a ton of articles. Those features are entirely worthless in an article submitter.

    I realize our industry has made us all BS artists - but selling to others in the industry, I'd rather have an honest review and not the hype. Will AD work? Sounds like it. Just can't part me from a dollar when I can save fifty and accomplish more with a tool made by a fellow Warrior.

    I could care less about the shiny interface, or the calendar --??-- I have one of those already. You all have fun, now, selling people hyped up products that are second-rate.

    Joseph - thanks for the input.

        Anyhow - I was going to do the same for AMR but...ya know...there'd be no space left. : )


        Not bad, just not really impressed. It still seems like they're too little, too late, and will make money simply riding the brand name. I need more than that, though - it's not enough to have a name brand.


        If anyone's used it - just wondering: have you had success with the higher PR directories?

          If you purchase AD then add as many Articles Directories as you want. Just because AMR has more directories doesn't mean anything. I would prefer adding my own anyway and having that option to do so.

          If you ask Edwinsoft for a bundle discount they may give you one. If I purchase 3 of their programs it will come out less expensive that AMR.

          Anyhow - I was going to do the same for AMR but...ya know...there'd be no space left. : )


          Not bad, just not really impressed. It still seems like they're too little, too late, and will make money simply riding the brand name. I need more than that, though - it's not enough to have a name brand.


          If anyone's used it - just wondering: have you had success with the higher PR directories?

    Why don't they add 1000s of article directories that already exist and test them all out, rather than tell us to add them ourselves. Weird to be honest.

    Just got another package bonus from AD, so around 420 article directories at the moment, I guess it hasn't grow to its fullest potential yet, will be expecting more bonuses from them.

    I know it's early yet - but would really like to hear from you AD users: since there are 100 sites loaded, it should be pretty easy to test the acceptance rate. That would be a genuine selling point.

        It's also very cool to keep starting article demon and seeing a flashing "bonus directories available" icon at the bottom. I think the directories currently available now are just under 600. At this rate there will probably be a couple thousand by Christmas.

          With just under 600 directories about 430 accounts were created and article was submitted. Two days later just over 100 articles have been approved.

          Considering the variety of directories it submits to and it has only been a few days I find that to be very good and another list of about 100 directories are available that I have not added but I would not be surprised at the rate directories are being added that it may well be around 1200-1500 or so by xmas. You can even add your own directories should you happen to have a list to add.

          Many of the directories you notice in the software are many of the favorites article marketers submit to by hand. Though there is 3 in it that I will continue to do that with.

          The article spinning tool is robust and has a synonym suggestion and mass replacement tool and is better than most.

          Now in all fairness you may have noticed that more and more article directories are slow to approve or in some cases not even approving articles and if they do it can be weeks later and there are many factors.

          Edwin put a lot of thought into this software including the synonyms harvester from your own spin able articles that you have written to the pen name account creator. Too much to list here but the sales page covers it.

          My only complaint unless I missed it is maybe the ability to import email accounts from BMD to this.

          This tool is a strong buy and if you liked BMD then you will likely enjoy this tool.

          In all fairness I have not used AMR but I am quite happy with Article Demon.

              So far I'm quite satisfied after comparing AMR and articledemon. As a current user of BMD, articledemon is really a good piece of article submission software. There is only one drawback I found out is the author bio details. Some article directores only allow anchor text to leave on author bio box but when you register for article demon, you need to leave the bio details earlier. So, how are we going to change the author bio details for different articles?

                I prefer to submit to the top 5 directories (obviously, of my choice) manually. As far as your question is concerned, it would be best to make out a list of those directories that permit bio-box creating during submission and use the program to submit to those only. It is too early to predict the number of permutations and combination. Chances are the some of the directories that need a bio box to be created during sign up might permit links in the body of the article. :confused:

              I Would really love to know this as well. I was just doing a google search for it but didn't really find anything.

              It would be brilliant if there was some sort of forum because to be honest I'm struggle a bit with this software. I don't believe it's overly newbie friendly as it will take you some time to get your head around all the features and how to best use it. I've been using it for a couple of days now and have sent a number of support tickets as it's just not geling right for me.

            Thanks for the reply - very much. It seems much too early to tell, from the results you're seeing. That's less than 50% success rate, which I wouldn't be satisfied with, given the results with AMR (it's been 55-65% overall, out of 1817 article directories).


            How about your signup rate? Does that go at the same speed as BMD's account signup? (I've been playing around with BMD lately and have to admit: there are few tools that compare in social bookmarking, but the speed is set to "tedious" and that bugs.)


            Anyhow, thanks a ton for answering the question, reapr. I'm sure over time your articles will be approved to show you a better result, I really think it's just too early to really tell.

    That's good news, then - and a quick build up from the 100. Gotta give cred where it's due. The only submitter I've ever used that can post to EzineArticles and other top directories successfully (most of the time) was Magic Submitter - never used SENuke. Would be eager to hear (give it a week I'm sure) if the same's true for AD.

    So: the bonus directories - are they quality directories or more PR0?

    Hey James, I don't do auto submit for ezinearticles etc top directories, prefer manually so won't be able to tell you the result. As for the bonus directories, first and second bonus packages should have about 200 pr0 100 pr2 and 50 pr1.

    Hey Guys...just received this email from Edwin Soft with a bunch of New Features and Directories. Article Demon is only a few days old now but Edwin Soft always takes care of their customers with new features, updates and customer service...class A company to deal with. They have really proved themselves with their last 2 programs as well(Bookmarking Demon and Blog Demon)


    We have just updated http://articledemon.com (not an affilaite link)with a new bonus list
    and new features.

    1. Added 450 bonus article directories, bringing the total to 550
    article directories.

    2. Upgraded site detection engine. It is now able to handle more
    directories.

    3. Added "Spin To Text Files" into rewriter. User can now spin the
    article into unique versions and store them into .TXT files.

    4. Added "Protected Words" into rewriter. User can now mark words
    that they don't want to replace when they use the synonyms replacer.

    5. Rewriter is now capable of detecting missing { or }. They will
    be highlighted in red. This will prevent articles from getting
    banned due to unreadable article caused by missing { or }.

    6. Added a new randomization option into scheduler. User can now
    instruct the scheduler whether it should randomize the
    selected items before adding it into the scheduler. By default it
    is set to no randomization.

    7. User can now change "follow tag" by unlocking protected field.
    Only works for self-added directories.

    8. "Add Article Directories" now support retry for auto-detection.
    This allow user to retry their list that contain unsuccessful
    records.

    9. Directory detection has been updated to provide more information
    on why a detection has failed.

    Previously, directories that are no longer online will show
    as "UNDETECTED". Now you will be able to see more specific error.

    10. Previously duplicate directories are added into the fail
    counter list. This confuses user. A new counter is added to the
    detection screen when duplication is detected.

    11. Closing the "Add Article Directories" after detection will copy
    all unsuccessful directories into clipboard. User can then paste it
    into notepad to see what directories have failed the detection
    process.

    12. User can now click on any segment of the "Preview Spun Article"
    screen to copy it into clipboard. To copy the whole spun article
    into clipboard, user can click on the [Copy To Clipboard] button.

    13.The .CSV file for Export/Import accounts, articles & directories
    now include the column headers (for readability). Exported files
    created in previous version no longer works unless you copy the
    header line from file exported using the new version into the older
    one.

    14.Author Bio column added into "Account Creation Queue" grid. To
    enable it, click "Restore Grid Layout" from the toolbar.


    For the core list of features, you can find them at:

    I have bookmarking demon and I don't like how the scheduler works. I set it to come on automatically when Windows starts and I have to turn the scheduler on manually to get it to bookmark.

    Does Article Demon's scheduler work like that?

    The same free public proxies that work inside of Bookmarking Demon work inside of Article Demon. That is good news.

    About the bio boxes. I learned long ago that a bio box is not really a bio box to an Internet Marketer. In my bio boxes, I just continue the article. I leave two links, anchored text #1 points to my homepage and anchored text #2 points to a deep page, if I have one, or also to the homepage. When the article goes live, the bio box is indistinguishable from the article itself. Here is an example of what I am talking about: hxxp://ezinearticles.com/?Will-Social-Bookmarking-Improve-Your-Website-Traffic?&id=4326967 (You will have to change the hxxp to http in your browser.) On that article, the bio box starts with the words "You can submit manually..." In my bio boxes, I don't talk about myself at all. I learned this idea from Grizz... and it has served me well.

    I always submit manually to ezine articles, wait for the article to go live, then submit rewrites of the ezine article to all others. Even though EZA is inside of Article Demon, I will still submit to that one site by hand.

    The pen name creation ability is one that is important to me. I have a pen name for each niche and keep my articles organized that way. I use pen names because I don't want anyone to discover my entire niche website network. A friend of mine did not use pen names at first. He showed an article to me, and when I clicked on his author name at the article directory website, a list of all his articles appeared. He did not know about some article directory sites doing that, and started using pen names after that.

    The fact that Article Demon notifies you that a category was not available is such a great feature! You can then choose a category that is 'close enough' and get a successful submission instead of a failed one.

      I think the time is fair compared to other tools. I use proxies and I am not too concerned about the latency or speed of those proxies unless they get over 20000ms

      At which point I choose another. I like the way it tests the proxies to make sure your real IP is not passing though. It is not clear if other tools test that aspect of a proxy.

      Well it is mostly automatic just need to set up emails and articles and let the account creation and approval and submitting begin. Actual setup for all that is like 10 minutes but I work real slow and use the two finger method of typing.

      Yep as I mentioned earlier it would be nice if there was not only and import feature between the various demons to transfer some of the data and as you implied proxys. It would also be nice to have a proxy harvester and you think it would be expected for a tool of this nature but just a minor complaint.

      I think when I did my last article submition there were only 21 categories I had to manually pick out of the 420 plus. I guess it will all depend on the subject matter or niche or even the directory type. Some of the directories were niche specific.

    Just bought Article Demon, can't tell if I like it yet because the instruction manual sucks, just a bunch of pictures of the pretty interface with very little practical details on how to use the program.

    I'm a BMD user so you would think I'd be able to figure this thing out.

    So, for any of you who are successfully using Article Demon here are 2 questions for you:

    1. Is the resource area HTML - can I insert links there.

    2. In the "Published" tab - Do I need to do anything to check if my articles have been submitted/published on the target site or does the software automatically go out and scan the sites at some set interval - then report back to me?

    Thanks

    Just out of curiosity - all you Article Demon users - any of you using it along with other submitters (articles)?

    I'm wondering specifically if anyone knows if the article directories are different between AD and AMR, because that would be reason to buy both (if you're nuts like me).

    I just got it, AD looks great and it is very well organized, however I'm having problems adding the 600+ bonus websites they offer, they all fail to add, and when I try to add my list of sites too, not sure what is wrong, however the rest is working fine, It created 75 out of 100 accounts automatically with decaptcher, need to submit some articles now and check that, the one I submited, i think 40 of them went thorugh and 2 were almost automatically approved, will wait more time to see the rest getting approved.

    Update:

    Got it to work, not quite sure what it was, but now is ok, and it is working really well, somebody got any directories list to add in?

      Please do let us know the success rate. Thanks in advance!

    Well, this thing is a complete bust at this point. Account creation went great, article submission was awful. When I "queued" my articles for submission, there were 215 directories that it was prepared to submit to. Of these 215, a total of 3 were successful - all the rest failed.

    I have been back and forth with support who have not been helpful up to now.

    If anyone has any idea why this is, please let me know. When I use the "view last error" feature it rarely tells me anything. There's a couple of ones where it says account hasn't been activated or summary is too short, but most don't show any error.

    VERY frustrating.

    I found this article by searching "article demon discount" I wonder if it was submitted using the software. Read through it and tell me what you think. I was ready to purchase last night but after reading this I'm not sure. Article Demon Discount Article Demon Bonus
    Is this the kind of results that are expected from most spinning software? I'm new to this but I don't think I would want my name on anything this bad. And do you think she intended to use her yeast infection bio?

    I am just happy with AMR and gave some experiments with AD, there is no doubt it is also a good tool.But, Right now AD is bit behind AMR when we compare both the features and price together.
    Yes BMD is a nice one but AD is just a newly born baby and it will get some feed backs and some more bug fixes. The initial functionality make me think that it will grow and become better than AMR. However, just we have to wait a little in order to make a mature comparison.

    I had AMR and I found it to be really hard to use, so I tried this new program, and I really like it a lot more.

    AD is confusing at first, don't get me wrong, but once you realize that all of the creations you're trying to run are still in the submit queue, it's fairly easy to slam right though them. The scheduler is kind of lame, since you still can't do anything else with the software while the scheduler is running. I'd love the ability to have it send requests to a server that can submit articles for me at intervals, but I suppose I'll have to wait for a new piece of software to do that too.

    By the way, you can add your own directories. With a little Scrapeboxing I added over 1,200 working directories to AD, and now the two softwares have very similar capabilities.

    The 500 submission limit on account creation is kind of dumb. I wish they'd get rid of that. Another thing I'd like to see in the future is some kind of randomization feature for articles I'm waiting to submit so I can pick from a variety of spins I've got out there.

    I had AD and AMR. Tried AD, found it very pretty but on 100 or so submissions got 60 successful and out of that 14 links. And from account creation to scheduling to submission it was slow and tedious. AMR might not look so pretty but it is much more effective and quick to use. So I refunded AD

      I love EdwinSofts Bookmarking Demon (it's a monster ) and blog comment Demon is a great tool but I'm sorry to say that Article Demon is an Epic fail at the moment (I'll hold onto it just to see if it has improved in a year), I'll carry on using Magic Submitter and Article Marketing Robot.

      Regards

  • We used Article Demon heavily for more than 12 months. Initially, success rates were around 70%. Then they dropped to 50%, then 30%, and now they are negligible.

    Whether simply creating accounts, pen names or submitting articles, the software is now virtually useless. We use a rotating list of private proxies that we change out each month, we use Decaptcher and ByPassCaptcha, we DO NOT spin content and we always use corporate email accounts.

    We have tried every workaround imaginable with no improvement. It's unfortunate because we are big EdwinSoft users - BCD and BD are also among our SEO tool and they work very well most of the time.

    However, when it comes to AD, I think it's safe to say the software is dead. They put too much effort into their new product, Ultimate Demon, and neglected their powerful stand-alone tool.

    It's a shame.

      How would you rate AMR (article marketing robot) to Article Demon?

      I am sorry that you have such a bad success rate but I must correct one statement. We put as much effort on all our tools. Plugins for both BMD and AD are still updated on a weekly basis, just like UD. We ensure the main list is kept at 70% health but we have no control over self-add list.

      Furthermore, we are going to perform major update to both BMD and AD in the next few months. AD is certainly not dead. In fact it will have a major usability uplift.

      I would like to know the health status on the sites that you are submitting to. Are they showing up as "healthy"? If they are not, your list probably requires some house keeping.

      There is a huge hit on article directories in the recent months and a lot of them have closed down. Without proper house keeping of the list, the success rate will bound to fall below satisfactory level over time. A new list is needed to keep up with the success rate.

      Open a support ticket and ask for Kevin. Mention this post in Warrior and I will be alerted to assist you.

        Couldn't be more right. If you're submitting to unhealthy sites you'll have a really low success rate. I'll occasionally clean up my master list. I also only focus on good sites with a high PR. This tends to help. I currently use UD, but still have my copy of AD (I'm having to much fun with UD, but still plan on using AD.)

        I'm anticipating the updates eagerly. Until then I have nochoice apart from using AMR. Will you be notifying the users via email regarding the update, or will it be through the software itself?

          You will be notified through email and the software itself. We will also update our Twitter stream.

    Much better, having used both. It supports more footprints and is overall faster to use. Higher success rate as well.

    there is any posibility to add articles directory which don't have any foot print and to learn AD to submitt to them?

    AMR can add only footprint directories, if the owner change the name of the files for signup you can't do anything.

    I think the success with articles directories is to build your own list of directories and to submit to them.

      The detection is based on a standard template. We can certainly extend the list of supported format but it can be very different and if it is a site that is of high PR, you can always send it in to us and we can have it included into the main list.

      Yes. Building your own list will bring you better success.

      Remember to update your copy of ArticleDemon to version 2 in April 2012 when we release it.

      Yes. To show your support!

      Sorry. I couldn't help it.

      But really, you don't need BMD nor AD if you already own UD.
