    I've just tried connecting to the link of Duke of URL and the site can no longer be found. Maybe they already closed down their website or changed their domain name.

    Thanks Silent, have you used any of those sites yourself?

    Can you confirm that they have made payments?

    For your content and article site list, there's http://searchwarp.com. They're a nice crowd of people, genuinely helpful. I've used it myself for a few years now. Great content stands an excellent chance of being featured on the home page and it's usually only hours rather than days before it's up.
