Magic Submitter is an all-in-one backlink building tool that was built to automate the majority of off-page SEO tasks many Internet marketers usually do manually. In this review, let’s take a closer look at what exactly Magic Submitter does, how user-friendly it is and whether it’s worth an investment or not.
Read on for all the details.
Magic Submitter Overview
|Medium:||Backlink Building Software|
Magic Submitter is a desktop software that you download and run from your local machine (compatible with Windows only). In it’s function, it’s an “everything submitter” meaning that it submits various forms of content like articles, videos, bookmarks etc. to a large range of websites. Magic Submitter can open up to 16 instances of Internet Explorer at the same time and simulate the various signup and submission actions for the sites in it’s database.
Magic Submitter Link Targets
Here’s a quick overview of the number of sites that you can theoretically get backlinks from, using this software:
- 50 Article Directories
- 156 Social Bookmarking Sites
- 31 Free Web 2.0 Blogs
- 16 RSS Directories
- 63 Video Sharing Sites
- 878 Expression Engine Profiles
- 18 Press Release Sites
- 255 WordPress Article Directories
- 80 Micro-Blogging Sites (basically twitter clones)
- 8 PDF Sharing Sites
Total link targets: 1555 (as of April 2011)
Note that Magic Submitter also lets you add your own custom lists of sites. If you have ScrapeBox and enough patience in setting up and customizing profiles, there’s almost no limit to how many sites MS can submit to.
Magic Submitter Video
Here’s a video with an overview of how Magic Submitter works and what it’s like to use this software:
Scheduler and Designer
As you saw in the video, Magic Submitter features a scheduler that let's you set up a series of tasks in advance. The scheduler gives you very exact control over what the software will do at what times and this has advantages and disadvantages alike. I personally found it "easier" to just have the software run in the background and manually select the next task, whenever a run is finished, instead of setting up a schedule.
A potentially even more powerful feature is the "Designer", which allows you to add your own sites to Magic Submitter. You can add your own article directories, bookmarking sites and so on to Magic Submitter, which means you can set up the software to build even more links for you. The designer is pretty intuitive to use and I could set up some custom sites without consulting the manual. There's almost no limit to what you could train Magic Submitter to post content to, except for the work involved in adding new sites and making sure the submission processes work.
Working With Magic Submitter
In practice, I found Magic Submitter to be mostly pleasant and intuitive. At first glance, the user interface might seem a bit overloaded with buttons and options and menus, but as soon as you understand the simple principles of how this tool functions, it becomes very easy to use.
The hands-off factor is pretty decent as well. You can easily have MS running in the background while you are doing something else. At least, as long as you don't run too many threads in parallel. You can have it do anything between 1 and 16 submissions at a time and if you choose the maximum setting, you will notice some slow-down as MS eats at your system resources.
I particularly like that Magic Submitter has a large collection of video sites it submits to, along with press-release sites and PDF sharing sites. Every auto-submitter submits to bookmarking sites and article directories, but press releases, videos and PDF docs are not such common targets. This can potentially give you an edge over your competition.
Overall, Magic Submitter does what it's supposed to do and does it quite well.
I am currently working on testing all of the major automated link-building tools and before I'm finished with all of them, I won't write more in conclusion of this review. Magic Submitter works, but the question is not "ist it any good?", the question is "is it better then the competing products?". That's what I will answer in an upcoming roundup review.
Until then, stay tuned!
