    What is the clout on your account. The clout index is on your profile page next to the page views on the right but you prob knew that :). Just curious, I am at a five.

    It's based on page views. The more page views you get, the more money you get also.

    Clout Level Index PPM
    Bonus
    Current
    PPM**
    [​IMG] 0-100 n/a $1.50 [​IMG] 101-500 n/a $1.50 [​IMG] 501-1,000 n/a $1.50 [​IMG] 1,001-5,000 n/a $1.50 [​IMG] 5,001-20,000 n/a $1.50 [​IMG] 20,001-50,000 n/a $1.50 [​IMG] 50,001-100,000 $0.05 $1.55 [​IMG] 100,001-500,000 $0.10 $1.60 [​IMG] 500,001-1,000,000 $0.25 $1.75 [​IMG] 1,000,000 + $0.50 $2.00 Index = Total number of page views PLUS a 1% bonus for each published submission (max bonus = 200%). Example: A user with 5 published submissions and 6,000 total views has an index of 6,300 (6,000 views + 5% of 6,000), which translates to a Clout Level of 5.

    PPM = Payment Per Thousand Page Views ("M" being the Roman numeral for one thousand). It is the rate we will pay you for every thousand (1,000) page views your content generates.

    **Calculated by adding the PPM bonus to the current baseline PPM rate of $1.50, which is subject to change. For example, today a user with 50,000 monthly page views and a Clout Level of 8 will receive $80.00 ($1.60 x 50).

    ^^^ I think figgity missed the point of the question :)

    My highest is at a clout 9 and should FINALLY be at 10 by next month.

    Most of my accounts that aren't brand new are between 5 and 8

    Redtide- for accounts with a clout of 9- what is the average payouts per article? Right now at a clout 5 my average is $3.03 but I get offers for $3.33 and $3.89 often. Also any tips for drawing traffic, I am sure hits from other traffic on AC such as fans counts as traffic right? Thanks

    I am also curious about the clout question, I believe redtide said he saw the jump to 5/6 per article at clout 7, but cannot remember for sure.

    For traffic, I followed and tweaked his guide about using a bunch of twitter accounts, as twitter is good for clicks but not much else.

    Same question here. :rolleyes:
    Does Upfront payment raises If I have higher clout levels? Or just the Perfomance Payments?

    I am pretty sure the upfront payment increases Seph, but I am not sure how much, I just have heard from other Assoc Cont writers.

    Upfronts do rise Seph


    edit: @ alwayscashinin - My clout 9 account averages $5-$6.29. To your second question, absolutely!

    @ twoj04 - How is that working for your traffic, have you been able to get a lot of followers on each account?

    3-7 articles form depending on the time. No rewrites as of yet, all handwritten 2-3 hours tops.
