Is 100 bucks a day in AC hard? Thanks
It didn't used to be but now is. Read around in this subforum for some of the most popular threads with the highest post counts etc...and you'll see why.
Does it still require phone verification?
AC traffic is going down, go look at alexa its on a downward trend. Its the ezine affect.
I've been out of the loop with them for awhile but that's such a gosh darn shame to hear. :borladuck
$100 a day with AC is hard, but $33 or so is not if you are a full time writer, writing somewhere else. Write about 15-16 decent, SEO-friendly unique articles while freelancing or submitting to other paid sites, particularly those with higher standards. As soon as you submit to the other sites (which approve within, say, 1-2 days) also submit to AC (who approve in about 3 days).
This way, both sites will perceive the content as unique, since neither submission will be posted and indexed on the web in time to be caught. Also, since you wrote better quality articles the approval rate for getting upfront payment should be higher at AC. Doubling up this way, most articles I have secondarily submitted to AC have been approved for upfront payment with no problems. At $2.20 average payment, it's an extra $33 bucks a day per 15 articles written, on top of whatever the primary paid sites pay me.
Hey, I buy a lot of articles, just couldn't keep that one to yourself I guess. LOL, well now I know what to look for I guess.
I've heard after making 500, they cut you off by making you have to sign an IRS form. Is this true?
I think it is once you have reached $600. But yeah it is true after reaching around $500-$600 in profits you will need to submit a W9 form if you are a US citizen or a US resident.
If you are talented enough you should attempt to write for some online/offline magazines on daily basis.
I wouldn't say it is going to be easy to reach 100 bucks a day with AC but I also wouldn't say it is hard either. Get paid upfront payments as well as performance payments. Find ways to get decent traffic to your articles, and, you will also be getting a little bit of free views from just submitting all your articles.
I haven't been doing anything with AC for quite a while. I have moved on to better things (in my humble opinion). Writing articles on less popular subjects is a good way of coming up with content that they will more than likely accept. Place your keywords within their search engine and see what pops up. Stick with subjects that does not have too many article pieces. For example, 5,823 articles have been written on dog training. This is a worn out niche with AC.
I did pretty well with niche subjects that had less than one hundred article pieces. Good luck!
I wouldn't say it's "hard", but it's highly unrealistic and even if
you could...would NOT be the best use of your time.
I used to make okay money selling articles on AC, and it was
a pain to break more than $10-$15 a day, and that was with
To reach $100 a day ($3k a month) using AC's system would
require a team of writers cheap enough to do the work for
less than what AC pays you (i.e. very little).
If you want to make a few bucks a day for gas, fine. But as a
focused long-term business model? Fugetaboutit.
Is there anything stopping you from just creating another account when you reach that limit?
Very well said.
AC just pays such little money for the amount of work that needs to be done. ******** 'em!
Depends on how well AC can now detect duplicate accounts. Now that they have Yahoo funding them, they just *might* be able to crack down on people opening several accounts.
Yea. Pretty much. I don't suggest opening 2 accounts because you will probably end up with 0 accounts in total. Yahoo is a BIG corporation which means they have more systems and money to go after black hatters and I'm sure Yahoo doesn't tolerate any type of funny business...
I think it would be possible if one were careful. I have plenty of private proxies (i.e. only I have access to them) so I would keep them all on separate IPs. Obviously I'd have to use multiple PayPal accounts and make sure to clean up cookies/flash local shared objects/cache and probably fake user agent. Yahoo is a big company, but that doesn't make them omniscient.
how much does AC pay now?
just posted my articles on AC, but no reviews..
