As regular users of Ultimate Demon will already be aware, it is updated several times a week without the fanfare of having to download a patch and do a full reinstall. It does what is known instead as a “silent update”. While booting up it calls back to Edwinsoft’s servers and updates sites and scripts automatically. I much prefer this method as you know you always absolutely up-to-date and it negates the chance for any manual errors occurring.
April 2014 was a particularly busy month for the silent updates with almost 100 new sites added by the developers. More than this, the success rates for the sites on my unsorted bonus lists improved dramatically.
It works like this. Once every three months I do a complete 100% retest of every site in my lists adding any new ones scraped over the previous 90 days. It’s a process that takes up to a week to complete as it involved many tens of thousands of sites. These tens of thousands of sites are my “unsorted lists”, the ones that pass and allow complete account creation and link submission are my “members lists”. I only deal with 100% success, if it doesn’t work… my members never see it. Only those sites that allow for sign-up and submission are sorted and put in my members bonus. This is often a figure just over 1000.

How big are the unsorted lists? A quick count up now shows that I test and filter from (wait for it) 145,771 sites to bring that 1,100 that are bulletproof. As members also know, I provide the actual accounts, emails, user names and passwords that were created during the testing process as part of the bonus. This is proof positive that the sites work. Hell, you can even use the accounts I created in testing if you wanted to, all the information is there for you
Site Success Entropy
Over the course of the 90 days between one full retest and the next the success rate will drop by a few per-cent even for those who follow the best practice procedures as outlined in the Ultimate Demon Advanced Users Guide. The main reason for this is that the owners of the sites either close them for new sign-ups or close them for submissions altogether. If you aren’t in before the door shut that’s it. During that 90 day period I will add 2 incremental updates of sites that have been partially tested. These partial updates are sites that Ultimate Demon will accept into it’s database, but they have not yet been tested for account creation and link submission. They are tested once the 90 day full retest cycle comes around again.
What About CMS Updates?
Another reason for a slight drop off in sign up success is that the content management systems behind many of the sites types are often updated. WordPress article sites for example have had almost 35 updates since the platform was released. Many of these will break the automated scripts in tools and mean that the sites are flagged as unattainable. Well, the huge amount of work that Edwinsoft have done in April 2014 seems to have improved the situation no end. I’m guessing here, but it looks like they have added many new alternative scripting paths to the standard sign-up and submission processes. A quick retest of some of my unsorted lists shows many more sites now working. Great news all around.
I’m already looking forward to June and July 2014 update and having substantially more sites in my lists that I’ve had previously.
May 2014 Members Pack
Talking about my bonus updates, the May update, due in the next two weeks will be my 30th successive month of providing these. This helps to ensure that my members always have the very best potential to create high-quality links for their content marketing campaigns.
The 31st update the following month in June 2014 will be a full refresh of the testing procedures for all sites. A lot of hard work, but it does, I hope, provide value for my members.
Integration With Kontent Machine 3 Cloud Save Functionality
One thing I would like to see however, is the fantastic cloud save functionality from Kontent Machine 3 being supported directly from within Ultimate Demon. It already deals very well with KM3 campaigns, but adding the facility to draw these from the cloud so you can run these two applications on separate machines with no file swapping required, something which I know many who are serious about SEO and content marketing already do, would be a great addition.
Maybe that’s being saved for the release of Ultimate Demon 2.0, something else I’m excited to see in the near future.
More information on my members site www.scritty.org coming up in the near future.
