    I was just wondering, is there any possibility for someone to write hundreds of articles and make a living from it by submitting to AC??

    It depends on what you call a living? Its not hard to make 80 or 100 dollars a day from AC with multiple accounts. If your writing the articles yourself its going to be painful. If you outsource the work its a nice addition to your income. Your not going to make huge money with AC though so I wouldn't limit myself to just AC for your income. I would outsource it, automate it, then move on to something better while still earning money from AC. That's what I did.

    Why not?

    You do know that there are writers out there who close their eyes, write 3 articles and make more money than us here who send in 20 re-written articles.

    Glad to hear that, outsource will be the easier and better path to do it and still have a lot more time for something else. Thanks :)


    Yes but good articles get rejected from AC without any reason sometimes..I heard many BHW members are saying AC is not what it used to be like before...

    Exactly. In my opinion AC isn't worth it unless your outsourcing the work. Then all you have to do is submit the articles and collect the money.

    lol there's always a good reason.

    Do you write your own original articles? Then I can understand it when you say you "get rejected without any reason." because if you write a good original article i don't see why they would reject it.

    if you write good copy to begin with, stick with a topic that can be classified in AC's system, write over 500 words for each article and don't submit rewrites, you'll not be rejected often. if you feel the topics that get accepted that you write are unique and good, well, go look at someone elses work and copy their types of articles, it's all up there on the user's pages, plastic shit works and is mindlessly easy to type out even from scratch. hell, copy an article already up on AC's structure and topic but don't rewrite it, choose a new title and use all new content.

    @Sanitarium - Have no idea on own content, I suck in writing my own articles, so mostly I submit rewrites.

    @l0cke - Thanks for the tips man :)

    If you're able to live modestly then yes, you could make a living off of AC. Just don't stop learning other methods and be prepared for the whole AC "thing" to dry up. Invest your earnings into other methods and develop other income streams as quickly as you can.

    I currently make a decent buck with AC but I've also been diversifying away from them. I'm hustling to find and learn new methods and some of those methods are starting to pay off (thanks BHW).

    Good Luck,

    @gun-shy and hangingcool - Both of you are right, never stick to one income opportunity, but would like to know your best AC earnings in a month :)

    GL Guys. Personally I don't want to oversubmit articles so another tip from me is, if you have a girlfriend, fiancee or wife, ask her if you can use a paypal in her name and create an AC account in her name too. I use my fiancees to be sure I can submit all my articles every day and soon if I'm submitting say, 30 a day, that's 90$ a day, which will fund my other ventures and pay better than a 9$/hr job... I haven't had it pay off yet because I'm still working up to that many articles, though.

    I read about people using multiple accounts. I'm not sure why it's necessary?

    I don't see that AC has a limit on how many articles you can submit for an account, so why the need for more than one account?

    I know a lot of people are trying to avoid the $600 threshold in terms of a W-2, is that the big driving force, or is there another reason I'm not catching?

    Im curious about this too. If Im a legit US citizen, do I really need multiple accounts? Is it because AC will reduce your upfront payments, or will they seriously ban a US account if I submit too many articles? (I submit legit 100% original content)

    Can someone experienced with AC clear this issue up? Submission of articles over multiple accounts vs. large submission over one account?
    Which one will get you banned?
    Thanks.

    From what I understand, and I don't think there's 100% concrete evidence to back this up, but I understand that people believe they do reduce your upfront payments or otherwise become suspicious when you're submitting countless articles daily, every single day, on a single account.

    The bottom line is that AC doesn't give you specific reasons why your payment might be $1.xx or $2.00 for a given article rather than $3.xx or $4.xx, so people can only speculate as to what works best... which is to write original, quality content and to submit no more than about 10 articles per account per day.

    So, although for some people, I think the $600 threshold might be an issue, I think there are other reasons why a lot of people spread their stuff out.

    Hope that helps.

    one of the things with submitting so many articles is going to eventually be the taxes; if you're paying a dollar for rewrite, to which you might only get $2 from AC for the article, and taxes take 30 percent or whatever after you breach that threshold... that's like 30-40 cents profit (this is assuming your articles aren't great and only get that much per article). i mean, sure, it's profit.. but it's not much.

    i'm debating with just submitting 25-50 articles per day on one account but the thing that's stopping me is knowing that i'll have to pay taxes on it.. course i'll probably eventually burn for tax evasion so whatever.

    When AC becomes suspicious of user activity, they'll trace you up, check your ÎP, your info and so forth, and if they find something out, they ban you, if they don't ban you, then you'll be fine, plus, what they pay for article has nothing to do with the quantity of articles you submit, but rather the quality, keep submiting 400+ word articles with the same quality, and you should be getting the same.

    for those users who have no problem in remaining anonymous, submit 100/day per account if you can, AC doesn't know if you have been writing articles every day for years and you just decided to submit them all.

    personally, I use multi accounts because I'm not from the U.S., sometimes I don't even use proxy, (and haven't been banned yet), just change my IP and go post to another account, but that is just playing it safe.
