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?
