    First of all, I am now a published author on AC thanks to tips from people like redtide, danny, etc. Every single one of my articles have been accepted so my ratio is great to say the least. Major thanks to you guys. Now I have just a few questions. Just a little heads up...I am approaching this site with whitehat standards because the re-writers I came across to hire were complete garbage. I guess you get what you pay for though because I was basically offering them garbage in return lol. I need a decent ROI though :rolleyes:


    1. Can I submit more than 10 articles a day on an account that I am personally writing for? I can write high quality search engine optimized articles very quickly on various topics, but I don't want to be banned for it.
    2. If me and my wife use separate accounts will we be flagged because we are sharing an internet connection? She has her own computer and everything, but we don't want to risk things going wrong when we are legitimately writing our articles (no outsourcing at all).
    3. Are affiliate links allowed within articles or is this a no no?
    4. Is there a way to link articles together without one of them being published first?
    5. Is there a keyword density that I should make sure not to go over? I don't pound it into the article, but I like to use certain researched keywords and phrases to boost rankings.
    6. Are the performance payments paid per views of all my live articles combined or just per article? IE: 5 articles reach a combined viewing of 1000 = $$

    OK I think that is all my questions so far. I am really happy with AC though. It has already become a very easy source of income for me and I don't outsource so all profits are keeps. :yield: :p

    Hi Phunky,

    I'll do what I can to throw some answers your way but they may not be as in depth as they could be because I'm getting ready to head off to bed. One thing about hiring rewriters.. it takes time and some patience to weed through the crappy ones, but believe me, if you stick with it you will come across some surprisingly good writers at $1 per. Anyway, like I said in the book, working AC as whitehat as possible never hurts so your game plan sounds like a good one to me :biggthump

    1) You can, but whether writing yourself or not, the more articles you submit per account per day, the lower your upfront offers will be and the better the chance of having solid articles declined.

    2) It's possible (ridiculious as it would seem.) There have been other threads over the last year here where people have dealt with this issue. (the thread will be well buried, but I remember reading cases of this.)

    3) It's against their TOS, but sometimes they can be slipped in because AC doesn't check every single link in every article. With that said, they do check random links and if they catch you doing it you can kiss all your accounts goodbye.

    4) Sure, if you already have an article published that relates to an article you're submitting, you can hyperlink to the published article as long as it's related.

    5) I would never go over 6%

    6) total combined


    Keep it up mate and congrats on starting right out with excellent results. I can tell by your writing why that is ;)

    Cheers

    Thanks...as always you are extremely helpful. I will keep trying to find better outsourcing options for sure because I love to automate things. Can you recommend how to have multiple accounts? I have a subscription at:

    Code:
    https://proxify.com/
    Is that good enough or do I need some sort of software?

    This is a question that a lot of people have. I'm pretty sure Redtide goes over this In his "$30 a day" thread.

    Also, if you haven't already, check out his AC insiders guide. It'll help you out tremendously.

    I'll check it out again thanks. Sometimes my memory goes out the window. It's rather sad since I am only in my late 20's. :p

    I would like to post one quick question also since this thread is about AC question, hope that you don't mind people :)
    I was reading that Redtide`s long thread, but I just miss one very important thing. So here is my question:
    Where to find articles which could be potentially accepted on AC?
    What kind of articles have better chances to be accepted by AC?

    Yes, I know... That is not one, that is 2 questions... Hope that you will be kind and answer them.

    I`m looking forward to buy Redtide`s book, but no luck... More than 30 articles rejected so far so I have not earned for a book :(

    I cant believe... i was running away from books whole my life and now I`m struggling to earn and buy one LOL

    In my experience so far, as long as you use the provided templates on AC you really can't go wrong with what kind of article you submit. It just has to be something people will want to read about. Don't bother with over saturated stories because they don't need them. Redtide's book is good and worth getting for anyone looking to get into AC, but I think your main problem is either your writing style or your ability to successfully edit an article into something unique with proper grammar. I mean no offense to you, but by your post I can tell your English is a little off.

    I'm not s proxy expert so I'd hate to lead you astray mate (I'm able to change my IP with my modem) but here is some great info provided by BHW member Undefy in my "made $30" thread:

    Long time lurker on the thread but having gone through the trying to change my IP route recently I figured I'd chime in with some advice.

    First off, DEFINITELY check out the proxies section. Just the stickied threads in there will give you enough info to find IP's for yourself (from browsing forums) to use and how to implement them.

    If you just need something quick and won't be changing all that often, you can use TOR. It's free but also slow. It SHOULD work for AC but don't count on it working for CL or youtube, etc. I can't imagine AC has that many IP's blocked that Tor should be a problem, but it wouldn't surprise me either.

    You could also go with a service like hidemyip or step up to using VPN's and go with someone like StrongVPN or usaip.eu For all of you NOT IN THE US this would be a good idea (it isn't free, there is a monthly charge) but you'll appear to be located in the US and can go about your business as if you were in the US (minus the SSN number and US paypal accounts of course).

    Hope this helps and great thread. Been on the fence about getting your book, but only because I don't know how much I feel like writing everyday (would love the extra income so I've been considering it hard for a couple weeks now... told you I've been lurking).



    Shoot me a PM emilex and I will work with you on a payment plan for the book if you want. To add to what phunky was saying, the number one thing that contributes to high rejection rates are if they aren't written by a native English speaker. Solid grammar, punctuation and spelling are a must with AC. I do speak in depth in the book regarding my methods for finding quality content, but the above metioned things are the most important aspect. If the articles are being outsourced it's still really important that they are proofread and edited to meet AC's requirements.

    I understand that article must be written in correct grammar. None of those articles was rejected because of that. All of them were rejected because not being interesting enough. I was getting responses like "not providing enough relevant informations" or "not being interesting enough for readers", some shit like that...

    @RedTide - I`ll contact you back tomorrow, need to finish some stuff. I will have power off for next 12-18 hours. Electric company is fixing something so I`ll be offline for some time.

    No sweat...one thing to keep in mind is that the not unique enough excuse is AC's "blanketed" response that can mean any number of things including:

    1) Keywords/topics are too overstaurated by other AC writers already

    2) Not enough search volume in Google for your chosen keywords/topics

    3) Too many other pieces of web content already exist based on your EXACT keywords/topics

    4) Topic is too "broad" and not specific enough to qualify for upfront payments

    The above are the most likely, but they've also been known to use the "not unique enough" excuse when in actuality it's spelling, grammar, punctuation etc.

    redtide1969, thanks for your post. I came here just to find this answer. I just had my first 2 articles rejected. The AC email said, "AC is building a unique library of online content, and, unfortunately, this submission doesn't differ enough in topic or breadth from existing content to qualify for Upfront Payment".

    So my question to anyone is how can you offer unique content when the method for writing articles I usually see recommended is to rewrite other articles?

    Should I go for more bizarre topics or just narrow down a topic instead of taking a broad approach? The articles I had rejected were on 'Credit Repair' and 'Physical Fitness'. Those weren't the article titles but that's what they were basically about.

    By the way, redtide1969, I bought your AC ebook and it's very clear. I like step-by-step. Very nice job

    You're welcome flashcraft, thanks much.

    I talk quite a bit in my "made $30" thread about the importance of mixing things up and using obscure subjects/keywords/topics in articles, maybe give that a read over. Keep in mind that rewriting is the fastest easiest, way to submit to AC, but they have to be rewritten well. A well written rewrite is the same as an original when done properly. Again, check out my thread for more info because I've talked about this in length throughout the last 7 pages or so.

    Cheers
