    I got a email which is tied to my associated content page and its about a site called mintarticles.com I just want to hear what you guys think about it. This is what the guy sent me.

    Kile Gates,
    Another Content Producer, a satisfied member of MintArticles.com, has sent you the following message on Associated Content:

    I want to present you a new article directory where you can submit articles and earn money. No, this is not another AssociatedContent clone, this is a new, unique article directory where the staff does not choose to pay you or not to pay you, because you are paid directly by Google. That's right! You just have to submit your publisher id of your Google Adsense account and you start to make money instantly. Personally i've made so far $2.63, but i have received only 35 views of my SINGLE article(that's approximatevely $75 for 1000 article views). On AC you'd earn $1.5 for 1000 views(where's the truth?). I haven't been paid by MintArticles.com to send you this pm, i just wanted you to know of a better place(cause there is always a better place!). PS: By the way, AC's main source of profit is also Google Adsense, so make a conclusion ;) MintArticles.com

    What you guys think? The guy has no published content so Im thinking its a bot.

    Well what you do i still submit to AC but just rewrite the article and submit rewriten to them, For fast easy cash I still suggest using AC, for more residual income you can build your own sites, use hubpages or these guys.

    I really perfer fast upfront payment for my article over pay per view, since I enjoy the fast cash. So it looks like MintArticles only pays for views.

    As I read my email, I read there payments were paid through my own *dsen*e account, If i read this right I would have to send my publishers ID to them? I make to much money from *dsen*e to get banned! Please let us know if it works out, I will sit this one out,...... For now.

    why would you get banned? iys just a revenue sharing article directory
    only problem is to get adsense income you need traffic to the page....that site doesnt have much weight in the search engines right now for you to really get much traffic.

    anyways, doesnt AC pay a 1.50 cpm performance payment on your article anyway. probably more than youd get with adsense.

    from what I could tell it appears to be a brand new article site...if you go through the different categories you'll notice there are very few articles.

    This site has no page rank. But even the big boys had to start somewhere. I may post a few article here and see what happens.

    It seems this site needs to grow some more and develop a PR. It could be an easy spot for now to have a link and hopefully its PR will develop. Anyone have any luck with money?

    Well it's a bot for sure. I got the exact same email. Why would someone tell you about it if they weren't part of mint? "Just thought I would let you know how to make money that I could be otherwise making if I wasn't messaging you."

    Yeah I smell it, and it ain't flowers.
