    Ok,

    im new here so excuse me if this is a complete dumbass idea.

    Ive just finished reading

    http://cutewriting.blogspot.com/2008/05/unethical-business-practices-by.html

    Anyways from what I understand when you create a AC articles you get paid $1.5 per thousand impressions. If you wish to make money from the impressions part of it then you have to promote the article yourself. If you just want the upfront payment then you dont concern yourself with how many impressions you are getting.

    Anyways, if AC is willing to give you 1.5 eCPM for your article, then if you could manage to drive trafffic to your article at lower that 1.5 CPM then you could keep the difference.

    Soi guess if you paid for traffic, and it is legit traffic then you could make money this way? Is this a correct idea? Surely there has to be areal traffic source at lower than 1.5 per thousand REAL visitors?

    IMO, the only thing worth about AC is upfront payment.

    If you're not a US citizen, chances are your account will not live long enough to benefit from residuals. If you are, there is no need to buy traffic and risk getting banned, just use some of the many methods on this forum to promote your AC page. ;)

    Don't complicate or spend a lot of time over thinking AC. Take the up-front payments and make a few bucks. Then move on to bigger and better.
