    Perhaps its just me or a bad couple of days, but I've totally lost the uumph or zing to submit articles to AC. I mean maybe it all has to do with the low payouts generally( although I do get bet $3.12 - $3.75 on average), the rewriters who have totally gone off mark after promising their undieing commitment to work and do whatever it takes etc etc (GAF rewriters in particular) and finally scraping for the content that will guarantee upfront payments and payments worth working for. Is anyone else out there feeling like I'm feeling ? Some kind motivating words would be much appreciated at this time. Thanks.

    I'm feeling the exact same way, but what you need to do is just make an excel sheet of all of your rejected/low paying articles and see what pays more, I really lost all hope when I got 4 articles in a row rejected and I had to pay my writers, but I need some fast cash to pay for next year's college dorming, so I'm starting to motivate myself to work.
    Use AC for fast cash, nothing too long term.
    Start using your rewriters for other sites...
    check out content cash cow..it has some other websites to submit articles to,
    also try
    textbroker...
    Good luck

    Thanks for the insight Danizdeman. I'm already with textbroker, I will definately check out your other suggestions though. You're absolutely right about AC being short term, I guess I got carried away into thinking that more could come of it really. Wishing you the best with your ventures as well.

    Same here, after getting lots of articles declined & low offers by AC and an obviously non-functional PV-tracker i decided to give it a break and now I am checking out other content-sites as well and try to sell articles / use them for my own blogs too. I'd love to use t*xtbrok*r.c0m too but I can't since one needs to submit a W9 form :/

    Living With Articles!!
    I have lost interest on AC around 1 year ago.
    AC accepted and paid me for some articles, rejected some articles..
    I was submitting articles to AC in 15 accounts at that time.

    After realizing the work load, time, AC's low payout, no sense rejections - I quit AC.

    I started an article directory with those rejected articles and now I am fully using rewrited articles for my own article directory.

    I never submitted original articles to AC, only rewrites...

    Yeah, the most important thing in writing/re-writing is to keep on producing unique content. From there, you can always find new ways to make money with it, from AC to PLR to freelancing, etc. AC usually has okay reasons for rejecting articles, but also so many ready-made excuses, it's clear that when they get low on cash they overdo the rejections, using the excuses as their cover.

    it's not so much the fact that they reject articles....because if they rejected articles they wouldn't publish them no matter what...as if there was a certain standard they try to uphold...

    but instead of rejecting articles, they refuse to pay upfront for the content....they'll publish crappy work...they just won't pay for it...but they'll still benefit from the unique content. I mean AC benefits from any content they publish.

    not that it matters. 2.50 for articles doesn't really pay the bills :cool:

    What i do is take out 2-3 full days out every month just to scrape content. Collect a few hundred articles and then for the rest of the month I only have to pass em on to the rewriters, nothing else. Even if you do 20 articles a day, which is quite easy, theres still $1-1.5 profit, that means an extra $1k a month...not at all bad for just passing on work to others and submitting the content. AC FTW

    You got that right about it not paying the bills. I mean you have got to submit like 20 -30 per day (unrejected articles ) to see any sense in terms of money and that in and of itself is risky. Not to offend anyone but the fact of the matter is AC suits high school or college / university people looking for a quick fix. Or as they say those among us wanting start up money for other internet ventures.

    Although when saying so I've read where AC has gone as far to say they have individuals who earn a living from AC but it beats me how they do it. I gather they don't blackhat it , so how they do it any other way and make something is totally mind boggling.
