    Without even searching I think it's safe to assume that this site has been talked about to death and isn't a mainstream method of income for people but what I have trouble understanding is why people aren't still discussing it in such depth

    The site is still an awesome weekly income.

    Pros
    + Pay by PayPal
    + No form of Verification
    + Instant Sign-Up

    Cons
    + Takes a Week to get Reviewed
    + Requires Decent Grammar Skills

    I mean, I am getting a solid $4 for a simple 400 word article on MY opinion about the video games I play. I enjoy writing these and I can pump out easily 10 in a matter of 80 minutes or so. With my basic English & Grammar skills I get almost everything accepted and I can even do most of these at work in my spare time.

    So what I dont' understand is why this site isn't taken advantage of as much. I see a lot of people browsing these forums, looking for quick money making methods and Associated Content is definitely a guaranteed method. Article writing doesn't take much skill or talent and with all the software out their like voice-to-text software and paraphrasing software, its just too easy!

    Thoughts?

    Instead of submitting your articles to Associated Content you could be writing your own articles on your own website and making a lot more than that measley $4 per article. :p

    But it is still viable to start with.

    I suggest writing article, but anything that gets rejected - instead of re-submitting, just start a blog on that niche (if it is something you can write more about) then start pumping out the articles. Whatever gets rejected goes to your new blogs, and they grow in time while you get money now to hold you over from AC for accepted offers.

    I don't understand how publishing my own articles would make more than $4

    I mean, I guess with ads it would amount overtime but I don't see people purchasing the content alone like AC does

    Not be a pain in the ( o ) But was it necessary to start a whole new thread to say this. I mean seriously, could this not have fit in between the other 30 threads that have been opened just this week, forget about last week. Just curious. Maybe I'm spending too much time online and the smallest things are irritating the @&#%# out of me.

    Well I was just curious why there wasn't so much discussion about it when it seems to be such an effective method of making money

    That's not really much to discuss about it, you just write articles, submit, and forget.. Pretty straightforward..

    Most people are taking advantage of it, they don't post threads claiming they are, that would get annoying.. How do you figure people are not taking advantage of it? :|

    All I'm saying is this-- In the time it took you to create yet another post-- which it seems you have a good understanding of basic English. You could have turned your post into an article.

    people are taking advantage of it ...

    having articles wrote for $1 each etc. buy 50 or so at a time (cost $50), sell them all to AC for $4 each (4x50 = $200) total profit = $150 for writing 1 email and saying you want 5 articles on 10 different topics.

    use the next $150 to buy 150 articles etc. etc.

    I agree, I don't see the need to start a new thread each time someone has something different to say about the AC method. It's getting annoying to see so much new threads created about it every day.

    How is this even a new concept worthy of a new thread? They got 850,000 articles in their DB already and not accepting any family life articles.

    Don't you think that means work-at-home moms are already doing this and flooding them with articles about how they maintain their gardens and what tv shows are kid-friendly during the day?

    There is no freakin way you can get QUALITY 400-500 word articles written for $1! I would love to see the quality you get with those particular articles. I have tried before and ended up spending just as much time correcting the damn article than I would have just writing it myself.

    That way doesn't work.

    BTW, anyone find any BLACKHAT methods to the whole AC setup? Like having links within the content that go to CS pages? ;)
