Ok so I finally have figured out that doing item review articles seems to be about the only way to guarantee an upfront payment from AC, my articles are hand written and very good SEO wise but only when i do them on one type of product do they get accepted (i am obviously not stating which product it is incase most products do not get accepted) So then why am I only making $2 per article, I am not hoping to get rich but I need to make at least $3 - $4 per article to survive. I tried to branch out and cover some other things and do product reviews other then the one type of item that is working for me as the average CPC for adsense is only $1 on this type of item,so I tried doing a review for a laptop and a camcorder, here is the actual titles: "Archos Gmini 402 a 20 GB Camcorder and Multimedia Player Review" "Dell Inspiron 1750 - I1750 5772OBK Product Review" Both rejected for "content did not qualify for an Upfront Payment offer because the topic is not specific enough in scope to be discoverable" well can anyone please tell me why? Was it that the terms aren't searched enough? If all I can make is $2 per article then so be it, until things turn around for me I will write 40 articles a day, i don't mind hard work but things would be so much better if I could squeeze another buck or two out of them. And I hate it when 50% of my work gets rejected. And before you suggest the other post on this forum on how to find a niche save your time, tried it, did EXACTLY what it said and went 0 for 6 on being accepted for upfront payment.
