    This is an updated response to the thread "The Easiest and Quickest $100 A Day I Know." If you haven't seen this thread before, you can view it here:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/23925-easiest-quickest-100-day-i-know.html

    Associated Content is now Yahoo! Voices. The new URL is here:

    http://voices.yahoo.com/



    The thread is five years old, yet continues to get a ton of views and comments. I noticed a lot of people commenting on it in the last few months, saying there was no way it could still work - but I know better. And I'm here to tell you that it does still work.

    I was bored a few weeks ago and decided to rewrite a few articles and submit them to YV to see how the site worked, these days. I rewrote three different articles from three separate niches to see if one niche paid more than another. I decided not to do any more than that, if the site was a waste of time. All three articles were approved and I was offered upfront payments for each article. So let's debunk some of the comments about this thread in the last year.

    Myth 1: Yahoo! Voices Doesn't Accept Articles with This Method Because They Get Marked as Spam

    I read a few comments from users saying Yahoo! Voices sent them emails that said they wouldn't approve their articles because they were spam. Guess what? If you try outsourcing to some bottom-feeding, non-native English speaker on oDesk or another freelancing site, you are NOT going to get quality articles for peanuts and Yahoo! Voices damn sure isn't going to accept them. I know that's mind-blowing. You honestly can't outsource this type of work to turn a large profit because YV doesn't pay that much to begin with, so if you aren't planning to do the work yourself, don't bother.

    Myth 2: Yahoo! Voices Doesn't Pay More Than $2 Per Article

    I was offered over $3 for each of my articles. Not great money, but if you're someone who thinks $10-$15 a day would be helpful, then this method is still viable. If you think you can rewrite 20 articles in a few hours by speaking them, then that's still $60 a day. Here's what I was offered:

    Article 1: $3.31
    Article 2: $3.11
    Article 3: $3.06

    I'm sure this number can vary greatly, depending on the niche and quality of writing. If you write a seasonal article, that pays even more. For example: 10 Cheap Halloween Costume Ideas

    Supposedly, they pay up to $7 per article. I'd assume that's only for specialty articles, like I just mentioned, or something that is insanely well-written - which I would not expect you to see if you're quickly re-writing with voice software.

    Myth 3: Articles Take Two Weeks to Approve

    All three articles were approved in one week. That's really not a big deal, just keep writing articles and you'll have new ones approved each week.


    So. The method does still work. Voices also pays you residual income for every 1,000 views your article gets, but I wouldn't count on that and only consider the upfront payments when asking yourself if it's worth your time. All three of my articles were published on 09-09-13 and have only received 13 views between all three. I'm sure good niches good generate a good amount of views, though.


    What You Need
    for This Method

    - Voice software (just torrent Dragon Naturally Speaking from Pirate Bay or another torrent site)
    - Articles to rewrite (go to ArticlesBase or eZine and grab a few from popular niches)

    Cons About This Method

    - Must be a US Resident
    - Payment can only be received through PayPal - you cannot opt for a check or an alternative eWallet like Moneybookers


    Hope this helped answer any questions about this thread. I know it's old, but it does still work and might help some noobs. Feel free to ask any questions and I will respond as soon as I can.

    Cheers,
    Gatekept

    I was so close to trying this before, when I finally went to submit an article I wrote for AC it said I had to be an American resident. So disappointing when you live North of America and the only thing separating you is a line on a map.

    There would be no way around this, since it has to do with tax regulations. Once you reach $500 in earnings, you have to fill out a US W-9, anyway.

    You can always partner with one of Your friends in the US if you have any for them to submit the articles for you. Think outside the box if this is the only method you want to work with.

    I personally wouldn't risk filling out a W-9 in my own name for someone else. Taxes are nothing to screw around with. Like I said, W-9 after $500 in earnings, so there really is no point unless you only want to make $500.

    I have a couple questions.

    When will I see the money in my Paypal account?

    How long should these articles be? Is pay affected by the length of the article?

    I have a ton of unpublished content on my computer, and I could probably pump out 10 well written articles an hour. That would be about $20-30 and hour which is pretty nice.

    Anyone can sign up and write from any country, you just won't be offered upfront payments. Basically, you'd be writing articles for free.

    After you are offered an upfront payment, YV will ask you to confirm your paypal email within three days of you accepting the offer. Within two days of you confirming your PayPal email, you will be eligible to receive your upfront payments through PayPal. They pay every day Monday-Friday. Performance payments (payments per 1k views) are sent monthly.

    A typical article is 500 words. I think you can do 400, but you will be offered less money, so stick with the standard 500.
