Introduction

Generation of Backlinks is a challenging task for the success of every website. It not only improves search engine rankings but also traffic thereby generating more revenue through various ad programs.

There are various ways to crate backlinks but distribution of content to various popular article directories provides natural traffic to your websites. Moreover, these directories are accessed by different people and your website and content will become popular over a period of time.

It is practically difficult to manually submit articles to various article directory sites. Hence, there is a need for an automated tool such as Mass Article Submitter, which has a unique ability to submit different versions of your content to various directories.

The software has been developed using .NET Framework and it ships with an ability to automate registration and e-mail confirmation. I hope that this will drastically save time to enable web masters and writers to concentrate more on content development.

In order to get start with the product you need to create a profile by clicking either Magic Article Submitter Wizard button or Manage Profiles button located on the Toolbar. A window as shown in Figure 1 will be displayed on the screen and you need to provide personal details and e-mail settings. The product will make use of this information during the creation of accounts and for automatically activating e-mails.

In order to work with the product you need to create a new email address and setup email forwarding from your hosting mail account using IMAP. You will find the required steps which have to be followed for this process by clicking the link above MailBox Settings option.

The product will create accounts in the respective article directories as soon as you proceed to the next step. The wizard will display the statistics and progress on the Log box as shown in Figure 2. I was able to successfully register with 662 article directories. I also noticed that the registration engine is powerful than other competing products.

As soon as you complete the registration process, the system will start activating the e-mails by downloading it from the server as shown below

Figure 3

I found that the activation process stops if you click on any other window on the screen. I hope the vendor will look into this problem during the release of the next version. The software will begin email activation as soon as the messages are processed and will display the progress as shown in Figure 4. Moreover, you can add additional directories to the database by selecting Manage Article Directories option from the Toolbar.

The software only activated 341 article directory accounts at the end of the activation process as shown below

Figure 5

The product displays a data entry screen as shown below, which you can use to create articles.

As you can see, it is possible to spin the content by wrapping the relevant words as indicated. This will create unique articles randomly and helps you to avoid duplicate content or similar articles across various websites. The software also displays a small preview of the article so that you can correct any errors before submission of articles. Moreover, the product is integrated with Magic Article Rewriter with which you can spin the content.

The next step is to select an appropriate category under which you need to submit the article by searching keywords. The product automatically displays a set of categories and you need to select one of them as shown in Figure 7. However, I would prefer to pick the predefined set of categories from a list rather than doing a search and hope that the vendor will include them in the next version of the product.

Figure 7

The product includes an article scheduler which you can enable after selecting a category. You have to select the day and time as shown below

Figure 8

The next step is to submit the content to various article directories by selecting Submit Articles button located on the Toolbar. I was able to submit the content to few article directories and majority of the site status displayed the message as Skipped. However, the vendor informed me that this is an issue with the selection of categories. I hope that once you get familiar with the product it will be easy for you to submit articles. Moreover, you can directly interact with the developer through e-mail if you have any doubt regarding the functionality of the product.

I found that the product has a very powerful article submission engine but it takes little time to understand the usage. The vendor provides excellent support through e-mail and also provides no question 60 days money back guarantee in case if you are not satisfied with the product.

From my point of view, Magic Article Submitter is a tiny piece of powerful software and will be useful for internet marketers and authors who want to submit content to various article directories in a minimum amount of time.
