    I want you to read these terms from the AC site for display only rights:
    _______

    DISPLAY-ONLY:


    You give AC only the right to display this content
    • May have been previously published
    • Can be re-published elsewhere by you
    • Can be edited or removed from AC by you
    • Not eligible for Upfront Payment Review
    • Automatically eligible for Performance Payments
    • Not eligible for distribution with AC partners
    Best if... You want maximum control over this content, with at least a minimum opportunity for payments and distribution on AssociatedContent.com.


    Wait! Before you finish...
    Before submitting, you agree that this content:

    * is 100% original content you created. Submitting plagiarized or copyright-infringing content will lead to a lifetime ban from Associated Content. This includes rewriting others' content and submitting it as original work.
    * exhibits proper grammar and spelling.
    * is properly formatted (space between paragraphs/no bullet points).
    * is at least 400 words (exception: prose).
    * includes a direct, discoverable headline (For tips: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/50116/writing_headlines_for_ac_how_to_find.htm)
    * lists all references and outside sources used to create your content.

    __________

    Now I have been rewriting and resubmitting articles to them for nearly 4 months and I haven't heard a thing. I somehow think if a person submitted a bunch of PLR articles here, it would be fine as well. I don't think they are even watching.

    Hey tygrus,

    I had tested this awhile ago and it didn't work, they were all rejected. There's another thread here where I talked about it. In theory it should work but as we all know AC isn't "that easy" to get things by on.


    Good luck

    Redtide, this wouldn't be for upfronts, just performance payments. I just uploaded 5 PLR articles under another account and they all got automatically published.

    I know, but what happens is that when they go to review your page view payments they will pull the articles and not send you a dime. Then suspend or ban the account.

    I'm just telling you my experience with it.

    Redtide, in your experience, is there anyway to make a decent daily income for non-U.S. residents who can't get upfront payments only through PPV? Some of the longest members on there have 10 million page views and 2000 articles, but at $2/1000 they have only made $15 or $20K in 3 years. There has to be another way.

    Should I look at starting a bunch of fake U.S. address accounts up to $600 and keep cycling that way?
    thx

    Absolutely tygrus, the page views are only a small residual income no matter how many articles you have published with AC. I'm not going to try to sell you on it, but you may take a look at investing in my AC tutorial. It will walk you through the whole process (ask anyone here that has it) You could have been submitting for upfront pay this whole time you've been writing for AC. I've been making a full time living with it for a number of months. Also, there's a lot of other blackhat elements you can use to profit as well.

    But yea, I would definitely open more accounts as a starting point

    You should definitely look into buying redtides guide. =P

    As a user of his guide it has helped me a lot, and it's really informative. There's really no way you can't make money if you follow his guide.

    Yes tygrus, you need to have some US based accounts, probably 2-3 just to start off things.

    But I recommend you to have Redtide's Ultimate AC guide. I tell you why.

    First you will have a HEAD START with AC and second, which is very important, you do not have to erase your past knowledge or bad experiences with AC lol :D. I believe fresh mind works most efficiently. This has happened to me and I do not want to see you in same situation.

    If AC does that (ban non-US writers) then it will be very brave on their part... they will lose a huge income source. I don't think they will go that far...

    One more thing, even if they do that, there would be "other" avenues to get inside, and then those will be more stealthier and smarter methods.

    If you need USA accounts but is outside of USA, drop me a PM.

    Yes AC are getting strict even on display only submissions so don't risk it.

    True, she didn't have any details but just indicated that they have something in the works. i personaly feel like it won't happen, but unfortunetly she usually tends to be right lol. Nothing is anywhere near being in concrete at this point so we'll just wait and see. Like I said, I'll post up as I find out more details.
