Ok, so I was snooping around AC forums for the latest news. Usually I just look at the post titles and click only when I think it would be interesting. If you want to read all the bitching and moaning about AOL going in the direction of AC (which by the writers on Slate.com, Techdirt.com, insulted AC like hell...) check out these links: Slate.com = http://www.slate.com/id/2237107/pagenum/2 Techdirt.com = http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20091201/1956557154.shtml MarketPilgram.com = http://www.marketingpilgrim.com/2009/12/aols-seo-strategery.html Basically, they are calling AC site/writers "crap" and AC forum writers are blaming AC for accepting crappy articles (some are blaming crappy writers). So make sure your articles are 100% crap free. Do Not write like the AC writer, Sylvia Cochran!!!! Pissing match over, what caught my attention is the fact that AOL maybe starting a content website. http://www.seed.com/ Their site isn't up yet but they are accepting email addresses.

Will Seed.com be another "made for ads" website like AssociatedContent? Will Seed give AC a run for their money?
