Review – Artemis Pro

Overall Artemis Pro is very simple to setup and use. The user interface is not as friendly and feature rich as it could be, but it gets the job done. If you are primarily concerned about search engine rankings, the feature to submit unique articles makes the software worth checking out.

Note: There are several private label versions of Artemis Pro available at different prices. For example: Article Pro Software and Unique Article Publisher. There is also Fred Black’s Artemis Pro Pre-Processor Utility which is a separate product that simplifies the work of creating the three article variations.

 

Artemis Pro was one of the first article submission programs to tackle the duplicate content problem. Artemis Pro submits unique articles to each web site, and the theory is that search engines will not recognize them as having very similar content. All articles with very similar content do typically not show up in standard search results, and they probably do not contribute as well to your search engine ranking.

In order to create multiple unique articles you need to write three different versions of each article that you want to submit. Artemis Pro will then combine paragraphs from the three available versions to create a unique article. The math on this is that with just five paragraphs in your article plus a title, a total of 729 unique combinations can be created.

For the paragraph combining algorithm to work all three article variations need to have exactly the same number of paragraphs. Here the program is a bit finicky since it counts empty lines as paragraphs and it can sometimes take a while to figure out exactly why the number of paragraphs differ.

Artemis Pro does not have a built in text editor where you write your article. Instead you write your article in your favorite word processor and save it in the Artemis Pro directory as a text file. The documentation recommends that you use Notepad to write your article to ensure that you get a plain text file. However the program also requires that you manually line break your article at 60 characters or less per line. This is quite a chore when using Notepad.

Once you have created the three article versions and your resource box, the submission process is fully automated. Artemis Pro automatically looks for keywords in your article to determine the category and only submits the article to publishers who accept articles on that subject. First the article is submitted to sites with Munius, which is another product by the same vendor. The good thing about Munius article directories is that many of them will immediately accept and publish the article, and in our testing articles started showing up in search engine results in just 2-3 days. After the internal list of Munius sites is exhausted, the article is submitted to other publishers. During the submission process a running count of successful submissions is shown at the top of the screen. The process takes anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour, depending on the number of sites submitted to and the speed of your internet connection. Since no user interaction is required, you can go and eat dinner while it’s running.

For competitive reasons Artemis Pro does not reveal the list of publishers (article directories, ezines, newsletters, etc). All the vendor will say is that it numbers in the thousands. In our testing the program reported that it submitted to between 400 and 500 sites, depending on the topic of the article. Again, the names of the sites submitted to are not revealed, just the total number.

In addition to using the internal list of publishers you can add your own unlimited number of lists. The only limitation is that the publishers that you add must accept your article via email.

Review – Article Submitter

You can purchase private label rights for this software. Therfore you will find it under many different names (Article Submitter, My Article Pro, My Article Submitter, Article Money, to name a few) and at different price levels. They all share the same functionality.

 

First you start by filling in your personal information. Only one user and one resource box is allowed, so if you are submitting articles for multiple sites you have to either install Article Submitter in multiple locations, or change the information each time.

Next you write your article by filling in the text boxes for title, article text, summary and keywords.

Then you go to the Websites tab where you select which web sites you want to submit to. There is no information other than the name of the site to help you determine what types of articles each site accepts. The program does not have a feature to update the list of sites and it’s unclear how old this list is. But you can add sites yourself to the list.

After you have selected the sites to submit to you go to the Auto Fill tab and click Start. Article Submitter will now bring up each page in an embedded web browser and attempt to fill out each site’s article submission form as best as it can using the information you have entered in the program. The success rate of how many fields are correctly filled out varies from site to site (and you can fine tune this to some extent in the advanced section on the Websites tab), but you typically have to manually fill out or select a few fields, e.g. article category. You also have to press the submit button manually. There is no history or record of which sites an article was submitted to.

The final tab is called Manual Fill and is basically a web browser with a list of URLs for article submission sites. In a few cases the Fill button will successfully fill out some form fields, but mostly this section is aptly named Manual Fill.

Price $15 – $97
Money back guarantee Typically 30 days
Demo available No
Number of publishers (web sites, ezines, etc) 163. Article Submitter has 138 Auto Fill article directories for you to start posting your articles to. It also has an additional 25 Manual fill articles directory sites as well.

Posts to membership sites Yes. All submissions are done manually with form fill help by the program.
