    Hey all,

    Back a few years ago I did some writing on AC and really enjoyed it. I loved how you could write about whatever you wanted & if it was good enough you would get upfront payment for it. If not then you could still earn on page views alone.

    Time has come where I would like to do the same thing again but word around the camp is AC has gone downhill so what I wanted to ask is if there are any sites which offer a similar system?

    Many thanks in advance for any replies :)

    Depending on how long ago you wrote for them, prepare to get paid a whole lot less. Around 2007, you could get paid $1.50-$2.00 per 100 words on some pretty random topics. Now you will be lucky to get $3.00 per 500 words on random topics that they do not specifically ask for.

    I was getting average $4.00 per article & the articles were something like 2 pages.

    I've been trying Triond but any article I write is declined for duplicate content pretty much as soon as I hit the submit button.

    I've been browsing Constant-Content.com for articles that I could write. People have to request them, though. And the problem is, there don't seem to be very many webmasters requesting content. If you're the kind of person who can write a great article on a topic that you know nothing about to begin with, you could do well. Some article requests right now are things like:

    - Best way to learn Russian
    - Wedding Checklist
    - How to protect your children on the internet

    The payouts are pretty high though... The person making the request sets the price, but they usually look like $20 for 500 words or something. I hope more people start using that site.

    There are a few content brokers that I have written for that I would recommend to someone.

    TextBroker seems like it's the most popular site mentioned in this forum aside from Associated Content. If you want to do well there, then get yourself a current Associated Press Stylebook (costs ~$25) and use it to improve your writing in the AP style. It's not difficult at all to pass the proofreading test and get to level five if you have solid grammar and use the AP Stylebook during the test (which is allowed). A lot of people don't like the large jump in pay from level four ($0.014/word) to level five ($0.05/word), but it's not hard to get level five.

    Interact Media has a similar feel as TextBroker, but they are set up slightly differently. There are many more cost-per-word "levels" than TextBroker, and this is great for people who aren't up to level five on TextBroker yet.

    Writer Access pays better than TextBroker at all but the highest level. They use a similar structure where level five is the highest level you can get, but the way you move up the levels is a little different than TextBroker.

    I agree with potentialeight. If you are good enough you should be able to make decent bucks off those mills.
