    Im looking to make some money with AC, but i just have a few questions.

    1. How many articles can you submit per day?
    (i have heard that you can only do 10 a day, just want to confirm)

    2. What is the average pay for an upfront payment?

    3. If the limit is ten, and i wanted to submit more, than i will need to get a second 3rd or 4th AC account.
    How can i make more accounts while flying under the radar?


    (i do know that they have a limit to
    $600 before you have to submit a W9 or something like that.)

    Thanks for the help.

    Please add anything else you think i should know about AC.

    Greatly appreciated!

    Sure go ahead and try all that. Why didn't you read the forum on that section. Say hello to AC's lawyers for me.

    1. There is really no such thing as an "average". If you doing AC legit, there is no limit as to what you can submit. Just do not submit articles within the same niche/topic all at the same time this way, AC would be least likely to reject your articles.

    2. Average upfront payment depends on the niche. Some niche are better than others (plz do not ask which niche are the best....do yourself a favor and read this forum)

    3. AC has been acquired by Yahoo. Which means more money to go after scammers. In other words, if there is a way to beat AC's system now, not many people are silly enough to announce it on a public forum...There are writers on AC that visit BHW that would like to run back and tell about what we post here.

    HTH.

    k, well thanks for answering.

    I would have read the form but i had to go to work right after posting, i figured i could get some posts while i was away.

    didn't think people would grill me.

    In any case. i wasn't really looking to do blackhat for AC. i just needed to know if only 10 was allowed and i had read that people would get multiple accounts so that they could get more than ten.

    as far as niches go, i doubt people will post hot niches here. they would probably keep them to themselves. so thats kinda on my own. i do read the forum but i don't post unless i want to or need to. nor have i really been in this section, been an avid reader since 09.

    Just to clear up on submission and acceptance.

    its best to not submit in bulks of different broad niches. ie. all on Internet marketing: SEO,PPC,Conversion words, ect.

    So is it best to jump around? maybe you can give an example?

    thanks.

    Hey sorry to grill you but these questions have been asked countless of times just in different ways.

    Anywayz, yes it is best to jump around when submitting to AC. Instead of submitting all on Internet marketing or sub-niches of internet marketing, submit some on internet marketing, some on beauty, some on holidays, some on travel, etc.

    This way if you end up with the same "Editor" reading your articles she/he will be least likely to get bored and start rejecting your articles.

    Be sure to research each niche on AC you will write on to make sure it isn't something that has been over done.

    Interesting to know that AC was acquired by Yahoo.

    Tygrus, are you some kind of AC staff member under cover or what? It just seems that every thread I see you're steering members away from AC without even answer the questions they have. Yes, it is wise advice to stay away from AC but lose your attitude man, and try to be a little helpful instead of an annoying waste of space, geez

    Fyi, I know people who are still caking off AC, still getting $5.00+ per article so quit acting like a it's a sunken ship. There are ways to make money off AC, just have to know what you're doing.

    Tygrus, for someone who doesn't do AC anymore, you sure are in this forum a lot :rolleyes:

    I was uploading articles on my main account just for performance views with links to my blog, but then I got enticed about people getting fake u.s. accounts and submitting for upfront payments so I created a 2nd account with a new email but linked in the same paypal account.

    AC got a hold of that blackhat method, traced every account back who had purchased the ebook and banned everything. Of course my legit account and bogus account were found together in paypal and poof, all gone.

    When you post articles on AC do they even show up the search engines?

    that's a very stupid question. Why would they even pay you for article if they didn't show up in the search engine...

    Obviously you need 2 AC accounts and 2 paypal accounts. One for each because I don't suggest doing what the guy above ^ did, you can and will get banned quickly.
