    I am almost positive that AC has begun to track IP addresses. I had 9 accounts suspended today all at the exact same time. I received emails asking for a w9 for each account in order to reinstate them.

    The AC work that I do is completely outsourced to 3 different people who all use different proxies with Danny Relic's submitter. Recently I have been staying in a hotel and got lazy. I started checking each account from the same IP address last week-today BANNED! I have other accounts that I have not checked in a long time, they were not banned so it must be IP addresses. I rotate rejected articles as well so this could be part of the problem. Any ideas?

    Sounds to me like you nailed why already.

    First of all, if you are submitting less than 10 articles per day, then you really don't need 3 accounts. If you're just starting out, then start with one account. When I first started AC, the trouble wasn't in publishing errors, but by the fact that I didn't need to have 5 accounts submitting 2 articles a day.

    If you are submitting more than 10 articles, then use 2 accounts. Generally speaking, 10 articles is the max per day you should submit to each account.

    That being said, get some new accounts, and upload up to the 10 article threshold this time. You'll be more organized, and fly lower beneath the radar.

    Ive been messin with AC since march of this year. I had 9 (not 3)accounts becasue i have a very detailed system of how I handle rejections. The most articles I will send per account is 8, but i try to keep that number low.

    I have noticed that sometimes when you send 10 articles per day, and they read one article that they decide to decline, all the rest of the articles will be decline for that day. I have a higher acceptance rate when i send 2-8 articles per account. I also had such a high number of accounts because i use a different niche for each.

    A few of my accounts had very high clout and almost everything was accepted by them. I will probably send in a W9 to get my highest clout account out of suspension.

    But do you think the suspensions had anythign to do with rotating rejected articles. I'm pretty sure it didn't because if that was the case all the accoutns wouldnt have gone down (only the one of 5 that i rotate rejected around would have).

    On top of everyhting though, I can never be sure of what my outsourced workers are doing. Might be time to hire some new ones.....

    AC has always been able to link and suspend all accounts in one shot if given a reason to dig deeper, whether using proxies or not. It could have been one account that drew attention, got flagged by other AC users or any number of things. A lot of times I'll get lazy too and not change IP's between switching accounts, even over the last week, and my accounts are still alive and well. I would guess that one of your accounts got flagged (for whatever reason) and they dug deeper mate.

    edit: when you say rotate rejected articles, do you mean submit them to other accounts or do you just mean you re-use them after rejection on the same account the were rejected from?

    Right, Im sure this is what happened, one of my accounts was flagged for sure. I'm not saying that the IP address was the reason that my accounts were suspended, bi dont see how they would have been able to link all my accounts if i had changed my ip's, cookies etc. Like I said, there were some other accounts that were not suspended because they did not share any of the same ip addresses.

    When i say i rotate rejected articles, I mean that I submit them to other accounts.

    The only account I want back is the one with exrtemely high clout. I obviously used a fake name to open this account. Do you think a W-9 submitted with LLC information would be sufficient?

    Right, Im not saying that my accounts were suspended becasue they linked the IP's. Im sure that one account was flagged becasue of a method I used to use and they just banned all linked accounts.

    But when IP's have been changed, oookies cleared etc. I dont see how they would have been able to link the accounts. Like I said, I use several other accounts that I have never crossed IP's or cookies on, all these accounts are still active.

    To answer your last question, I rotate rejected articles to my other accounts that have higher approaval %s.

    Out of the 9 accounts suspended, there is really only one that I want back becasue the clout level is very high. Do you think a w9 with LLC info would be acceptable to the fine peopel at AC?

    Maybe there's a connection between the rejected articles being used on other accounts. I always try to use rejected articles on the same accounts they were rejected on so that no connection can be made between the accounts themselves. I just make sure to let at least a few weeks pass before resubmitting. Just a thought.

    This could be true, but i have rotated rejected articles in the past without any problems.
