    So, I have been trying to earn money with AC for about a month. I have submitted about 30-40 articles and got payed for just 3. I must say that articles were crap and when I look back I must say that I was lucky to be payed anyway.

    I have spend some time learning here, so now I know what I need to do. I tried to rewrite articles on my own and I saw that my English is not good enough to do it proper way. I have put ads on GAF and oDesk. About 25 people responded and I hope that I`ll find 2-3 good workers.

    For now I dont have money to buy redtides eBook, but I hope that that will not be a problem soon.

    Anyway, I`ll post my AC results in this post. Hope that you will give me support people :p

    Cheers!

    30-40 and just 3 accepted :eek:
    And what they say? "Incorrect grammar" in most of them?

    I had 10-15 articles rejected and 4 accepted on my last account, but I kinda expected that...I was just picking up some articles from Brazilian sites and translating at Google Translator, to many errors fo fix.. :(
    Now, I created a new account and started rewriting decently by myself...takes around 30-60minutes per article, but I believe in their quality :D (Still waiting to get accepted in AC).

    As soon I verify my PayPal account and raise some money, I will start looking for rewriters :beerchug:

    Best of luck emilex,

    Again, proper English is the first thing AC articles need to have. I hope you're able to do well once you have a few rewriters in place!

    Regards

    Well, I`m just not happy today but I think that I`m on right track.
    From 9 people I have submitted 25 articles. Not a single one is accepted but 3 will, need to cite my sources and change title.
    In most cases articles were declined because of being "not interesting enough" (12 of them).

    People, do you want to help me find "more interesting" articles for rewrite? Please PM if you don't want to say here.

    Please, I`m begging you :bawling:

    Anyway, from 2 ads I have found 4 people to rewrite my articles. That is something I believe but if half of my articles get rejected because of not interesting enough I will not earn anything...

    One more question, do you think that its ok to publish those "not interesting" articles for performance or to wait for a some time and submit them to other profile ?

    Thanks

    It's true emilex that the articles will get rejected if they aren't specific enough. srb888 and I spoke in length about how to use Google Adwords tool to narrow down specific keywords/topics to use for AC. It's in my "made $30 on two articles today" thread about 7-10 pages back.

    I wouldn't recommend submitting them to another account but you can retitle the articles, wait a few weeks and then try resubmitting in hopes that you get a different reviewer.

    30-60 minutes to rewrite an article? Man you gotta speed that up a lot. I am not saying automize it with some software but speed it up.

    I have put that in second gear :) I have now 5-6 people working for me. But my articles keep being declined because of not citing sources or "not interesting enough" :(
    Now, I have to cite 3-4 articles. I need to find interesting articles, please help me with that people!

    I've given away a number of tips in my "made $30 on two articles today" thread for what kind of specifics AC wants in order to consider an article unique and also cover it on a deeper level in my AC guide. AC wants specifics, so without them you will always deal with rejection issues. Without reviewing a number of your articles and the way you cite your sources, it's impossible for anyone to tell you where you could be going wrong Emilex.

    Thanks redtide as always! First thing for me to do is to buy your book as soon as I earn some cash with AC. I see that I need to start reading your guide once more here on forum and take notes.

    Cheers!

    You're welcome emilex. Sorry I couldn't have been more help but like I said, without digging into exactly what you're doing with your submissions it's hard to pinpoint the "uniqueness" issue.

    Regards

    From last batch of about 10 articles, 3 got accepted on average of $2.02
    That is few bucks closer to eBook :D

    I love your positive attitude :tee:

    Listen, if you want to send me a few of your rejected articles I will read them over (as soon as I have time) and let you know where they can be improved. Hopefully this will clarify some things. Pm me and I'll tell you where you can send them if you want.

    I really respect your "never say die" attitude.

    Regards

    Hi,

    Emilex, it seems like you are doing a load of work and only showing about $10 for your efforts. This can not cover your expenses. Are there residuals involved? Is some future payment of any kind expected?
