    Well I have been on AC for about 2-3 weeks now, so you can either accept or deny this information but it's from my experience. Here are a few tips to making money:

    1. Magazine's
    This has been talked about a lot on here, where I got the idea from actually. I like to download magazine torrents in pdf form, but before i do that I usually check the magazine's site to see whether they post their articles online. For example Guitar World posts their articles on their site but Guitarist doesn't so I take my articles from there.

    2. C4C
    This is a very handy method for making money seeing as how you get a topic and just write. I find that they usually have already put something like the one your doing out so just do a search and reword and add a bit to those articles. I find these usually get reviewed faster than normally published articles.

    3. Projects
    I'm not sure about the rest of you but I'm only 16, so when I finish my school reports I wait like 2-3 weeks after I hand it in (so I don't fail incase of copyright) and then submit it on AC. I know this isn't very scheming but if you have it there you might as well.

    4. Books
    Just like magazines there are a lot of books out there sitting in libraries and bookstores that aren't published online. Just take them scan them and use OCR software on it.

    Hope this helps, remember use any method you can out there you can.

    great tips. I'll also add that many newspapers now have archives going back decades, and there are sure to be some gems to rewrite in there. It would be fairly original too since the articles would be older than the internet.

    Yeah I've thought of this before (the magazine thing). I wonder how well it works? Does AC still catch you even if it's not online?

    you'd be safe if you rewrote it so it seems original. Flat out plagiarism is never a good idea, even if the original source is offline. Someone will find out.

    You don't have to wait to submit papers from school. You wrote them so you own the copyright, aka its not plagiarism.

    I'm sure he doesn't want his professor/teacher finding it and making a huge fuss or something.

    Nice tips, however wouldnt it be un-ethical to be cheating? Secondly, if you do get caught, they'll block your account instantly. And you cant go and argue with these big companies, so in the end you'll just end up losing 200-300$.

    My suggestion is, its better to write the articles rather then plagiarizing it and then regretting in the end because you lost the money :)

    AC=associated content
    C4C= calls for content, which is when AC has a specific article they want you to write for a partner site. they generally pay a lot more than average (like $15) and arent eligible for performance pay

    To Creativewriters: Now, I want to preface this by saying first that I am just a newbie here, so I don't know that much about blackhat versus whitehat, however, it does seem to me that in every forum I've seen you respond in, you have some suggestion as to why what is being suggested by others shouldn't be done...Again, I could be wrong, but if you are so against blackhat methods, why are you here?
