    Alright, so I hate to be the noob that asks questions instead of answering them when he's brand new, but I need some help with this subject.

    I write great articles, I really do. But A-C won't give me more than about $2 for anything I write. I was told by a friend that this was because my niche was crap for SEO, and that I needed a topic that wasn't too saturated yet not under-saturated. So, how is this done?

    Do I simply take a specific word (or string of words...) and somehow find out how saturated they are, then drop that list of words throughout the article?

    If so, what can I use to find out how saturated the words are?

    In essence, I suppose I'm asking: How do I find a niche that works, and how do I promote that niche within the content itself?

    Thanks for any and all help, it's really appreciated.

    before submit an article, just do a short research on AC articles database to see how much saturated is your niche.

    If you see many articles on a specific topic so submitting a new article will result in a small upfront offer.

    as for SEO within your article, repeat your phrase many times throughout, almost to the point it sounds like an informercial. For instance if your key phrase was viagra infomercials, keep writing viagra infomercials throughout the post, instead of using alternate terms. It's totally counterintuitive to writing for print, but that's what works for seo, it seems.

    That makes sense, werrich. I just wrote an article about rubik's cubes and wrote it several times more than any other keyword (only about 6 times actually) and my offer was $3.10. I can work with that! Thank you.
