    I wrote an article and published to ac but they declined it saying that i was trying to promote a product i was affiliated with, although i didnt put in any links on it .

    It was only about seo , thats it . Does this happen to you as well ?

    nope. I have only written one article to AC and it was also original. However, I had no problem getting it published. Run it through copyscape ? If they wont take it post it here unless you plan on doing something with it. Maybe we can see something you can't.

    Yes here is how to use copyscape without paying.

    1. create article or copy article.
    2. Open dreamweaver or what you use to create a website
    3. Paste article into body
    4. Upload article to a domain you own already (yourdomain.com/article.htm)
    5. take url of said location and input it into copyscape.com for urls

    I know this works because I copied out of an old magazine an article and uploaded it this way and it showed up as a positive for being copyrighted already.

    rep always welcomed haha enjoy

    @ OP - When AC declines an article for being "too promotional" it has nothing to do with affiliate links. It's 9 times out of 10 based on the way you wrote the article and the writing style. They probably felt you were trying to "sway" readers with the way you were writing on the topic.

    Extracting a link from a blog/site to use with Copyscape is way too time consuming. If it's an original article, there's no need to run it through Copyscape. If it's a rewrite, the fastest way to assure it will pass Copyscape is to use the free software DupefreePRO. It takes all of 10 seconds to paste the original into the left window pane, then paste the rewrite into the right window pane and hit the "compare" button.

    If the article is no more than 15% duplicate, it will pass Copyscape
