    How do you consistently write 10+ articles a day without running out of info to write? How do you constantly score 3+ payments as well?

    I am in the same boat as you. I just hit a wall. I cannot think of any articles to write. And besides that AC just gave me that little message that pretty much says "Be more unique". And I would love to push my payments to at least $3+ as I am currently only making $2.XX

    Exactly. I'm sure there are people multi-accounting but I'm almost sure that there are also ways to do it with a single account.

    the way that I handle lots of unique content is to write down a keyword on one sheet of paper and then do this with 5 to a dozen keywords all on separate pieces of paper. then I tried to think up a title for each page. I repeat this until I have around five or more titles on each page. Usually when I am writing I come up with the more titles and add those. For example if I am explaining how to paint a wall and then part of it is to pick a color, then I write down the colors into an entire article on that.

    You can end up with some pretty long list this way and always have something to write.

    I also write down variation the titles or just key points when I'm reading other articles online. One place to get topics is to listen to what people are talking about in the grocery store line or at their tables when you're eating out. lol I know that sounds strange but I have come up with a lot of good articles being busy and listening in on people.lol

    This is what I do. I'm never short of ideas to write. I just don't have time to write 20-30 articles a day (I don't freelance FT, I have a FT job...that I'd love to quit LOL) I even keep a list of article ideas on my iPhone for when I'm out and about. Everything in life is a potential article.

    Thanks. These are great tips to follow. It would be nice to get to the point where I can do 10 unique articles on average. Right now I'm only at about 5.

    Turn on the telly and you can get a gazillion ideas. Watch bloomberg for an hour with a pen and paper and I guarantee you that you will have more subjects to write on than you can imagine. Also, think laterally... for example let's say you watched bloomberg and the job numbers have come out for last month so you can cover unemployment levels, then move on to something like effects on global economy -> how will it affect xmas shopping -> how will it affect the banking sector etc Each of those can easily be a separate article.

    Oh, and to make sure your articles are as unique as possible I recommend not doing more than two or three per day in the same subject area or you end up rewriting the same stuff without realizing it.

    Also use the google keyword tool and look at the second list as that gives variations and synonyms.

    toyota recall = ok

    What factors led up to the toyota recall and how will it effect production of new models? = better

    Does the latest recall spell financial disaster for Toyota motors? = even better

    :) be more specific. Take a popular subject and make a new idea for an article from it. You're "borrowing" the traffic from the popular keyword and also putting up unique stuff. Contraversial(sp?) titles also help imo.


    as far as coming up with ideas....you are looking at it the wrong way as they mentioned above. Article ideas are endless. I can go on g00glie's news page and come up with at least a dozen AC articles from each piece every day. News might not be paid upfronts but articles BASED on news do...and pretty well too since the sbject is in high demand. heck go in the other topics forum here and you could do the same thing.

    AC niche finding is no different than any other niche research. In fact I was even thinking of using one of the niche finding progs Ive read about here to see if it helps PVs. It seems to be what all the adsense and CPA guys are doing.

    wow, you really opened my eyes with this post. I didn't think of advancing articles like that. I should have realized because my last C4C was asking for a twist on a news story itself.

    i dont think i will be doing the toyota recall story though. i have found an news story i find much more interesting that i want to put a twist on

    I use mind maps to brainstorm sometimes because I am very visual so what you can do is grab a piece of paper and a pencil (so you can rub out something you don't like), or better yet have a notebook you use just for this and watch the news story. So, let's take the Toyota recall (note I haven't turned my telly on in about a week and I have no idea what it's about) - make a nice big circle in the middle of the page and put toyota recall then draw lines out and add all the immediate ideas connected to it such as factors and causes, effects on the brand, profit loss and costs, damage control etc. Then from those make more lines such as from damage control you can spin off evergreen stuff like how to regain customer trust, or regaining credibility and so on...

    I just now realize how hard it is to try and explain a mind map lol... If you're not sure what I'm talking about I'll try and put a quick one together and post it for you.

    speaking of coming up with ideas...

    you guys are using this right? the google of article directories?
    Code:
    http://www.searchsmarticle.com/
    If not I highly suggest it. Its from another BHer on here (sorry whoever it was I forgot who you were, but yes those extra 20-30 hits a day over the last 3 months are me. :) )

    it pretty much cut my article research time in half and it usually gives me tons of article ideas.
    god I hope nothing happens to this site...i seriously use it daily. :)

    Thanks a million for that. I tried IAWP for a while but I think I am going to cancel my subscription to that because thanks to the amazing Wiz I d/led Sonic Snooper yesterday and it is priceless. Really lol... At least it works compared to IAWP which is down half the time.
