I believe article post robot has been around for years so I guess I’m a little behind in times, but I just purchased it and I like to do a review for every product I purchase, especially when i really like the product, as I do APR.
For the longest time I was very selective with my article submissions and did it all manually. I strongly believe mass submission is still a bad idea, but after my interview with Tim Gorman I’ve changed my technique slightly.
I’m still selective, but I’ve decided to start submitting some of my articles to a wider collection of article directories. I think submitting to only a few is much better for direct traffic, but submitting to more sites will bring in more links, so I’m getting the best of both worlds by doing both. In other words about 1/4 will be submitted to around 40 of the best sites bringing in alot of links, while about 3/4 will continue to be submitted to only the top 4 or 5 bringing in long term traffic without fear of duplicate content.
Anyway, because of this I’ve decided to take Tim’s recommendation on Article Post Robot and I’m so glad I did. The software is amazing!
Of course the #1 reason why it’s so great is because it does exactly what it’s supposed to do; automatically submit to loads of article directories.
Here are some of the features I like:
- The ability to automatically rotate as many different titles and summaries as you want simply by putting them into a notepad document and uploading it (see figure 1 below). This helps in making your article a little more unique for each site.
- The option to auto submit or manual submit. I like this because depending on the topic of your article, it’s almost impossible for any program to pick the best category. It does allow you to choose categories before submitting, but if you want to submit to a subcategory it may not find it. Manual submission is still pretty cool. It logs you into each site, automatically puts all the details in and if it’s in an inappropriate category you simply change it, click submit and your off to the next site; very easy!
- The ability to add or remove article directories (see figure 2 below). You have only the article directories you want to submit to in your list. If you only want to submit a certain article to a few on your list, you just check those and uncheck the ones you don’t want to submit to.
- Although the grammar could use some work, the user manual (PDF) was extremely thorough. Everything was explained to the T and didn’t leave any question unanswered.
Here are the negatives that could use some work:
-edit- I got my affiliate link. It was rather confusing though. When I sign up to an affiliate program all I want is my affiliate link and a place to check stats, that’s it. They use JV Manager and I’m not familiar with that though so that may be my problem, but it seemed rather difficult to just get my affiliate link.
At $127 many of the people who really need this software can’t afford it. Although it’s worth every penny, I think they should lower their price to a more affordable number. If it were my software I’d offer it for around $60. However, if you can afford it, it’s a very good investment.
Overall Article Post Robot is an awesome program!! I’ll definitely be using it from here on out! If you want to get it heres the link http://ez-onlinemoney.com/recommends/APR.html
