    This is my first boot, been there a little over a few months. This was a huge money making weekend then I check and nope, they blocked all accounts and none met the threshold. I need someone to help walk me through the next steps. I dont want to lose writers or the darn money that was pending in there. I am super hott. How can I avoid this from happening again, I need a good IP proxy server or whatever its called to not have my IP pop up, please for God sakes someone help.

    I am soo sad about this. Idont know how to change IP, i have been clearing cache but I guess that didn't work. I still have two accounts I use from my phone to log in. so that gives a different IP. But I dont want to restart setting up more accounts and run into this issue again. Almost 20 articles down the drain, THIS SUCKS:confused:

    Please can anyone take time out to advise what the best IP software is??

    What do you mean when you say "none met the threshold" roscko?

    If you've read around here in the AC subforum, there are a number of things that could have led to them digging into your accounts. It's nearly impossible to specify one certain thing without you giving every detail of how you handled your accounts, content, etc. Because you weren't using proxies or an IP change, it was inevitable this would happen eventually.

    Here are some things you can try to be able to change your IP http://whatismyipaddress.com/staticpages/index.php/how-do-I-change-my-ip-address. If none of them work based your ISP and modem, you can use packetflip proxies (look in the proxies subforum here at BHW). Many people have even had success by just using Hidemyass.

    I'm not sure if you do, but if you have my AC Guide make sure to follow the chapter on dealing with rejected articles and you won't have to let the 20 articles that were submitted go to waste.

    Good luck,

    Red

    Everyone who does AC in a big way will probably muff it up somehow and lose some money at some point.

    I know I lost about 70 dollars at one time doing this.

    I made it back and learned a 70 dollar lesson.

    Also I have checked my IP before I have a static IP, meaning I think it doesnt really hide me, because my ISP provided is fios and they keep the IP the same. So everytime I ran a command to change it , i checked my IP and it remained the same. So will hidemyass work with this?

    Also, if say you falsify info on a W9 but close the account prior to the $600 threshhold at which time AC says they report to IRS then would there still be confirmation on the W9 information if you do not reach the threshold, and close the account by then. Has anyone done this before. I have worked as an Independent Contractor before and I have gotten a w9 and never even reported the income because it was soo small, and the I-9 doesn;t get sent till the end of the year.

    I think it is not just proxies and IPs in this case. See, when you put axross many articles per day, then there is bound to be some loss of quality to most of them. If a smart editor picks up one of those low-quality work, and gets pissed off for anything, then s/he will begin the grave-digging into your account. If he finds you are using proxy (much easier with even avg knowledge of what to look for), then all your accounts will begin falling apart. BTW, how many PP accounts are/were you using? Were you careful enough with the things like these...

    So, as Spiderman says, "With great power comes great responsibility..."

    You should plan all such things before even opening more accounts in future. One thing that keep you going will always be the high-quality content. High-quality in terms of what they exactly want and not what you exactly give them. (Keywords, topic, niche, title, grammar, content, attractiveness of the article, working with the advertisers and advertisements; giving some, taking some, and hiding some... ability to keep your reader 'screwed' to the article , and not screwing the article... )

    In short, a thorough commercial article that clicks every time with the search engines, readers, and advertisers. Whew!! Tall order this... but then you'll dictate terms and conditions! :)

    Seriously, just begin doing it everytime... always will be good for you in the long run. As the saying goes... run a little faster, no... not to beat the hungry tiger, but just to beat your nearest rival. ;)

    During this time at least (when A*C is prunning its 'garden'), you must produce a master-piece everytime and stay head-and-shoulder above the rest. I am not asking you to be extra-super, but these are the things that I strive for. Luckily, I have a better job to do elsewhere, and which also doesn't require me to be dependant on such trigger-happy a$$-h*les! :D

    I suggest you spend some time learning about proxies, actually you may want to use a VPN which I think is better than a proxy in most cases, its too long for me to fit all the info in here as its really something you need to start reading up on to gain some experience in because there are a lot of variables when hiding your IP address and if you don't gain a good understanding of the different factors than you may end up with a bad proxy provider, personally I have been working out ways to create my own proxies on web and cloud servers as I don't much trust the proxy provider websites (even the pay ones) although for VPN I am pretty sure this is a good provider: http://strongvpn.com/

    I am learning, what is VPN? I will research, I only have one PP and only submitted max 5 a day to acnts in AC. Yes I complained a tad, and now wondering if thats what caused them to peep in. I was ave 300 pvs per day, i heard some were getting 1000 pv's , I was not quite there, ( any tips on 1000 pvs per day??)I was using seo as much as I know keyword phrases, keywords, subheadings, ad words google trends ect, they have been declining a crapload latley and also offering $1 some days recently other days I usually get $4 for upfront. My clout increased and made my self friendly in the forums, except for some complaining because of the declines, like everyone else has experienced.

    So what is better paying a monthly fee for proxies provided to you, or making a list of your own or VPN? I need some feedback. We are researching but with editing and now a list of proxies to keep up with I do not know how someone can get this done in less than 4 hrs a day, seems like with submitting 10 or more articles a day takes 16 hours with editing, replying to writers, checking emails ect... I need also some organizational skills from vets. I do not want to run into issues like this again all wknd busted my butt to get those articles and now nada. I know the basics of this, I am ready for advanced advice, and basic advice on proxy VPN and paying for proxy, also how to save time doing this, and do I complain at all or no? That draws unecessary attention? You would think if I was known as a BH there then why would I complain if I get offers on other articles, but I thought my voicing my opinion then they would think as a writer I was po'ed and I was. I really worked hard on editing and just learned about subheadings.

    I checked VPN, how do I know which one I need, all I am using it for is AC, they have PPTP lite, standard deluxe and SSL & or PPTP lite, standard delux and also the ALL servers. Also, if I were to use VPN, each time I log into an AC acnt, how do I know it is not using the same "line" like IP addy when I log in, does it scramble whenever I log into multiple accnts, or do I have to change something not to be recognized from loggin in from same VPN. Dont quite understand how that plays a factor whith whiever, proxy, VPN ect. WIll it automatically change the server, ip, or proxy everytime I login to an accnt or do I have to manulally change something. The VPN looks great and cheap. Any feedback? How can you tell also, if you use VPN or proxy's that it is working that you are actually logging in unseen or from a different IP (whatever you call it when you use proxy, vpn ect..) Bare with my lack of better tech terms, still learning.

    Definitely you need a vpn. When you use a vpn it's exactly like you're connecting to internet from a U.S server/ISP. I've been using VPN for several years for different tasks and that's the only way to change your IP exactly like you're sitting in another country. Just remember to check these 2 things if you want to stay fully anonymous:
    1. Make sure that your vpn server is a dedicated server and your host name is not visible, if your vpn server is on a vps your host name would be sth like "xenvps5.hosting.com" and that raises a red flag. Goto showmyip.com and check your hostname from that combo box, it should be blank otherwise go and find another vpn provider.
    2. Set your computer time zone related to your VPN Server's country time. Webmasters can see your computer's time and if it's different from your country's time it would be another red flag.

    Yep I've worked though a VPN and that is definitely the best solution but the real limitation in it is if you need a boatload of different ips for say CL posting, then the solution is too expensive to turn a profit. I personally don't use VPNs but my sister does, I use paid ip proxys.
