    Hi ,

    My AC account worked fine till yesterday and I was earning quite a bit, but all of a sudden when I tried to login today, I got a message telling:

    I'm not a legal US citizen and had used my friend's cell phone (who resides in USA) to verify my account. So there is no way that I can submit my orm to AC.

    I had given up this account and tried to register again (after clearing the cookies), but then I couldn't login. Although I got the "verify you email id" mail, but clicking it or even tryinmg to login there did no good. I tired to create several ids, but the pattern continued. I feel AC has banned my IP address.

    AC was a source of my income till today (not fully, but yeah it helped me a lot). And since I tried to register there again and had no luck, I tried to search for a few other sites where I could use up my writing skills and earn a little bit of money. I found demandstudios.com and textbroker.com, but after going through these sites I found that they paid only those living in the US.

    There are sites like bukisa where I can write . Then it takes like forever for me to earn through pageviews.

    I also tried to explore my opportunities as a freelance writer on GAF and DP. However, the amount that we get there is very little and I feel it does not do any justice to to the time spent on writing.

    So I would like to know whether there are any other sites like AC offering upfront for the people living in the UK? Also a few suggestions on how I could use up my writing skills to earn a few bucks would do.

    Thanks a ton.

    If all external earn-thru-writing resources seem shut on you, why don't you try writing for your own sites and earn thru affiliate marketing, Adsense, CPA, etc. Adsense can be a huge income source (not joking) if you know the top white-hat tricks. Go thru all the methods included here for FREE. Remember, there are open windows to every opportunity, even if the doors seem to be shut tight. You just need to find a way to get to those windows (yes, in plural... there are many).

    Of course, it involves hard work, but so does writing articles or proof-reading the outsourced work, so better go the independent way.

    Good Luck to you! :)

    Thanks for your reply srb888. Yeah I've considered writing for myself in a blog and earning through ads. However, this world take some time to set up and earn me a decent stagnant income. Anyways I would start blogging in a day or two, and by the time my blogs start receiving a few hits, I would need some sorce of income.

    hey triana
    if ac has blocked ur ip addresss why dun u try using proxy ip address
    dun go for free ip addresses, but just have a private one...if u have earned from AC den u can afford a private ip address....thru this u can start earning from AC once again....and meanwhile try and establish ur own blog or website........
    this will give u 2 income sources...and if u dun want to write for AC anymore...then you can just concentrate on ur blog/or website....

    (srry for any typing error...my keyboard giving me headache)

    hope that my suggestion helps u..
    happy 2 help

    Yeah triana is probably looking to go down the safe route. I looked at AC too and thought it wasn't worth the risk. Why should we have to mess around with proxies? We are putting in the same work but ours is against the TOS. It may come down to a little blackhattery but I'm more concerned about protecting legit earnings.

    I wouldn't write an acticle for less than $25 so I think AC probably wouldn't be for me anyway. There are other safer options out there, from freelance writing to blogging, but thanks, you have answered my question

    hey triana
    one more option for u is just search the forum for 70:30 partenership thread
    here the guy who started d thread is willling to give u 70% of the earning from AC and keep 30 percent for himself. if you wud like 2 just submit ur articles to him and get paid for what gets accepted...
    in this way u will have some income and side-by-side do ur blogging work..once established ur blog, its up to u to think whether u wanna rite for AC anymore or not.
    hope have helped u
    happy 2 help

    Hey triana,

    Here are some instructions to try to change your IP address if you want to give that a shot for new AC accounts. If you're able to do it this way you won't have to use proxies

    Triond does not pay upfront like AC, it's own by a company called Stanza, LTD, and if I am not mistaken, this company is based in Israel.

    And unlike AC, triond users only get 50% of the ad rev. (AC is only $1.50 per 1000 per page views, Triond doesn't have a set $$$ per page views).
