    Hey everybody, ive had a scoot through the threads but cant find any relating to my question so here goes...

    When im submitting an article and i want to highlight my text to point to a website link, how and where do i do this,? Do i do this in the article body and use ahref tags?...

    Id appreciate if anyone could possibly paste an example in please,,,

    Second question,

    When submitting to ac, what is the best way to determine what ac will pay the most for?, will articles relating to current events or news pay more, or should i look for categories where there is very little articles??

    All help much appreciated guys...

    John

    Hi John,

    I got your PM man. I totally remember you. How have you been?

    Yea, I'm submitting to ezines all the time. Have you read their submission guidelines? If not it's really important that you do with them.

    Maximum of (2) "Self-Serving" active or inactive links/URLs to a website that you own, control, or have an interest in.

    Maximum of (2) active or inactive non-self serving links/URLs to a website that you do not own, control, or have an interest in which adds value to the article.

    Confine your self-serving links to your RESOURCE BOX.

    We do not accept articles with active or inactive links in the first 1-3 paragraphs. Please put your active links in the resource box below the article body. The article BODY is your "GIVE" and the RESOURCE BOX is your "TAKE."

    We do not accept links that use HTML to add style attributes to the link, URL, or text link description.

    We do not accept links formatted with Smart Quotes by using MS WORD.

    We will auto format valid URLs included in your RESOURCE BOX.



    With regards to hyperlinking, you can just click the "add link" tab at the top of the editor and paste your link in after you've highlighted your anchor text.

    Regarding AC,

    It's all trial and error really,

    All of the major niche categories do well, health and fitness, parenting, finances, home and garden, technology reviews, how-to's, tutorials etc. The main thing is getting a good feel for what keyword phrases (which is what every one of your AC's articles should be based on) haven't already been done to death there.

    When you think you have a good article to submit, just do a search in AC's search engine and make sure that your article's keywords aren't going to have more than 15 results in the other writers titles. (meaning more than 15 people haven't written articles with those specific keywords in their titles) If this is the case, you're good to go.

    It's also trial and error, the more you submit to them the better feel you get for what they want. There's no certain niche or topic that does better than others. It's just making sure that what you're article has to say about a certain niche is unique.

    Hope this helped to clarify

    Thanks mate,

    I did read the terms and conditions, was a gobbledeegook to me lol.

    I did try and enter my link in via the add link, but i enter my anchor text and then my link, and only my web address shows up....i must be doing it wrong...

    Thanks for the speedy reply mate, and thanks for the advice mate...

    No problem John,

    lol I know...their guidelines make my freakin head spin!

    But it's really not as complicated as it seems.

    Let me know if you figure it out, if not I'll try to figure it out with you.

    Cheers

    If you select articles that are been saturated in AC database probably they got rejected or you will receive very low offers.
