    Ok, i've went from an average $200/day to some $5/day $10 when I'm lucky, I submit the same amount of articles everyday like clockwork, and so far AC has accepted some 80% of then, but recently they just prompt this message "While we believe this lends some insight on the subject, it is not in-depth enough to give the reader a complete overview.", in past situations when they didn't get my articles approved, they either blame the grammar, or the "cite your sources" thing, but now, it seems they simply do not WANT to get my articles approved.

    the ones I got approved lately are 700+ words and they cost me like $2 to outsource and they are originally written by my outsourcer, other than that, everything gets denied...

    I've had a few getting through after adding my sources.

    Typical of me to discover the money maker when when its been arse fucked to oblivion.

    Ah well, there's always the dole office! :dog_walk1

    Weird, I got $3.01 for an article I rewrote myself just today. Dunno, if there's still money to be made in AC by outsourcing.

    Maybe try opening some new accounts and submitting them those. They may be wary if you have submitted too many different topics with the same account.

    wow phrasion thats one hell of a hit!! i was just starting to do this but i'm getting denied completely or only for performance so i don't think i'll pursue this as heavily as i was going to. and also by the way others are telling its not getting any better.

    only way i could see it working for me is to get some published and then hook up some bot that would inflate the page views like crazy and earn money that way but with my luck that quick infation would tip them off so i'm screwed any way.

    any adice anyone? i know there is an inflater program already but does it work really good? is it undetectable in a way?

    maybe we should post links to our pages and click on each others? just a thought. someone would probably go crazy though and get an account banned. oh well.

    thanks for letting me rant. guess the stress of not working is getting to me.

    the Danny Relic perfomance booster actually came in good time, and although the bot is very good and does it job flawlessly, (and the page views on AC indeed go up following the calculations of the bot), getting workable proxies for it is a headache, I've pasted in the AC proxy checker like 10.000 proxies that I got from the largest public proxy sites online, and from all those, I was able to get some 60 workable proxies, that's just outrageous, I'm thinking of signing up to a private proxy company, but I've been told that I won't get that lucky.

    So try it at your own risk, imho AC is dead, I'm done with it, as of today I paid my final outsources, and have officially quit AC, it was good for a while, but then it just got impossible, this last week, my profits went down to $50 in seven days work!, that's unbelievable.

    Well I am just thinking maybe we have to rotate our accounts more often. Like i said this method got over saturated but in a while bad weeds will fall out and we can start making money again. Common guys we are black haters we always figure out the way around it.

    on part your right, but then again, when it comes to AC, it's not some automatic procedure that you can cheat and get away with it, no, AC has people accepting and rejecting your articles, the only way around it is going there and point a weapon to their heads and force them to accept your articles, or become a article reviewer yourself.

    Hmm...what topics are you writing on? There has to be some reason why this is happening. If not the topic, maybe the quality of your work?

    Some topics have to many articles, so probably thats the reason they are trimming down the submissions. Try different niches, ones with fewer articles.

    AC is not what it used to be. Its still good I guess for throwing up crap articles really fast to try and get the performance pay for some residual income but its not good for quality articles anymore. I've got a total of 800 articles on there receiving about an extra 300 dollars a month in performance pay. Sometimes up to 450 a month. Its not much but i'm a complete whore for passive income.:)

    I was testing a theory with AC though. I rewrote two articles. One was just investing advice. The other was more specific. It was about the Vitamin A. Each 450 words long. The general investing article received 2.45 while the Vitamin article received 4.69. If I'm right the more specific you are with your article the better. At least that's the way I perceived it.

    so roughly, it can be $2.50 payment for upfront payment, but that takes up to 2 weeks,
    vs
    performance payments of around $1.50 per 5000 views, and it takes 2-3 business days to get published

    Correct, except it is $1.50 per 1000 views.

    I think you might have it a little mixed up. Its 1.50 per 1,000 page views. That page just uses examples as to how much you will get paid for 5,000 page views according to your clout level. If you have a clout level of 10 you will get 2.00 per 1,000 page views. In order to get a clout level of 10 your total page views will have to reach 1,000,000+ collectively from all of your published articles combined. Hope that clears up any confusion.:)
