Warning: Article Submitters Are All Buggy!

I have tried 2 article submitter software programs this week, and both are breaking on me. They just flop. Error message, blah blah blah.

One of of them is in trial mode, and I was about to drop some money on it.... now... forget it. The other one, I already bought, and I have to keep going to the developer to get it to work right.

Not going to name names here, but ... this is getting old. I just want to move on and get these things posted.

I want a piece of software, where I pay once. Not monthly.

Anyone have some ....good...stories!? :confused:

    Hey,

    You commented on my thread about this exact subject.

    You said you had a great one. Guess it wasn't so great? Withdrawing the kudos for Article Architect?

    On my thread, there were at least two posters who suggested Article Bot from Incansoft, which has only a one time fee of $24.95, I think. Didn't you see that? Go back and look at that thread again!

    What you are not going to hear about "article submitting software" is that the marketing landscape changes almost daily...

    The sites they were submitting to last year may not even be in business this year...

    What was yesterdays in-place to submit may have got hacked and broken last week....

    If you want one that is going to work for you, you need to find a software developer who does regular updates...

    The ones that I know of do not update regularly, if at all... I know of a couple of them that were only up-to-date for the first thirty days they were available... And that was years ago...

    Same thing applies to article directory software... A lot of them are buggy as hell, and subject to regular hacks...

    If you want better article submitter software, lower your expectations, or build your own...

      TPW - Thanks for that info. It makes alot of sense. In the beginning I was into the "submit to 2000 directories" mode, and have learned better. Now I'm focusing on the good content and promoting with a few good sites.

      REDICELANDER - yeah! your thread was where I started my search. withdrawing the kudos! I'm going to move on ArticleBot and see how that works. Will report back to everyone what I find out.

    I think with the constant change, to be effective, you need to hire Mr. Fancy, if you can afford him! ( I have no doubt that the results will pay for themselves, Though I have NOT hired him myself...yet.)
    Lol
    Sorry Bill, couldn't help myself.

    Alrighty! Have bought ArticleBot from Icansoft. Here are my first impressions...
    * Cheap!!!! not in quality, but in price. Very good price.
    * the UI has a web 2.0 kind of feel. simple. I like it. Not alot of tiny buttons everywhere to lead you down rabbit trails.
    * enter in 3 things.... your author info, article directories (alot already exist), articles

    Entered in my stuff, put in a couple of articles, and pushed them out the door.
    Out of 7 directories that I submitted to, 3 had problems, 4 succeeded.
    The 3 problem ones are because they use a different article format other than the 2 that ArticleBot supports.... ArticleFriendly and ArticleDashboard. But that's ok. I can live with that.

    As you click on each article in your "library" it shows you when they were submitted.
    If you click on the directories, it shows you what articles were submitted to them.

    Very simple interface. I like it.
    Will push 8 more out in the next day or so, and look at what things look like as they are being posted.

    ArticleDashboard is the article directory software that is hacked most often... Its originator has not supported it since around 2007... ArticleFriendly is the better of the two, but it has its own issues also...

    Here is a list of article directories that I have gathered, but it needs cleaned again... Always does... 1234 Known Article Directories Accepting Articles From The Public - from Tech Central Publishing

    If you were to use my service at some point, I don't submit to a lot of article directories... LOL... I operate under a different model (I chase publishers instead of article directories)...

    Most article submitters work by loading the submission page and inserting the article content into the forms. When an article submission site makes a change to their page, most article submitters will break because they are expecting certain things.

    With Article Architect you don't have to wait for me to make updates -- if a site changes, you can make changes to the AA submission script yourself. If you want to submit somewhere that I don't support, just make your own submission script inside AA.

    AA is NOT an article submitter (something I say even on the sales page) but it does a better job than most actual article submitters because you can set it up for just about any article site, not just the ones I get around to adding.

    Jay Jennings

    PS - I say it's not an article submitter because that's a MINOR feature of the software and I don't want to be trapped into playing "catch-up" every time an article site changes their submission page.

    If you want great results you need a service not software. You need to send unique versions to each directory including unique titles where possible.

    This is what I do:

      I've been using Article Marketing Robot just lately which I bought on here as a WSO. With it I'm signed up to 674 directories, AD, MS, AF and Wordpress and getting about 500 acceptances with every article run. The developer updates it and so far I'm very pleased with the results.

    I think SEnuke is one of the best options (though expensive) since it is constantly updated and has tons of featured sites.
