I'm wondering how long people have been with Associated Content and is there another writing site that compares?

I dont know what is that good with associated content. I tried it several times and I never got any response from people who are using it. In fact they even wont accept my writings whereas it is very popular in India. Give me some tips to be popular with them.

You need to practice more in your grammar and punctuation. Also, I would like to inform you that AC only gives upfront payment for US and Canadian citizens. They will however give us (international members)performance payment or on CPM (cost per thousand impression) basis.

I am already very good at grammer and punctuation. I mentioned that all my writings are well accepted in my country. Sorry

i've earned about 10 with them, i am in the states and it has to be on a popular topic, reviews are the easiest and most profitible.. take a product you have already used, review it's commerciability and ease of use and bam, u get paid.

Almost a dozen people had already told me about this site and confirmed that it is paying and that is why I was interested in this. But I had to take a policy to go slow for the time being.

I am a member of AC and I love it, in the last three month I have made close to $200.00 off of my articles, that does not inlcude the performance payments, only what I have recieved for my articles. If interested in joining let me know and I will send you an invite.

I have tried that site, they are only giving performnce payment for international members. I have only one article with them and has earned me around $1.97. I'm still waiting for my payment. I just visited associated content and it says that my payment has still no schedule for release.

From what country are you? I only get performance payment from them. When I joined, the minimum payment is just $1.50, but now, I think it's $15.

Sorry, my mistake. I don't mean payment, it's payout.

well, there are plenty of sites. I don't know how they are for international members but I'm sure you all can look them up. here's my current list of writing sites: AC Helium (page view on regular articles. Market place can earn you real money) Constant Content (they let you feature articles for others to buy) Daily article (same as CC but more teen featured) Triond (paid for page views) shvoong-write summaries and synapses (page views) Gather-social networking site that lets you feature articles (paid for comments, ratings, etc...point based that can be exchanged for cash) squidoo+hubpages-they're not actually writing sites, but if you're popular and good with these kind of pages, you could feature your writing there as a lens/hub.

I just visited Helium and it says that the beta is over. You will have to wait for them to open.

This is a good list, however gather doesn't pay in cash unless you get over 3000 points in one month which is certainly not easy to do!

I could never find a site that compares to Associated content-but, I haven't written there for awhile because of rejections-I am not the only one who has had them either. Since July, they have been rejecting articles from different members. Early members who joined AC in the beginning were paid $10-$15 dollars per article now find themselves getting $6, $7's and even $4 and $3's! I joined AC in March of this year and I've written over a hundred articles with them, and now it seems like they don't want anything more from me. I will just have to settle with the performance payments. I think it's best to find a website that will pay you for a "task" with no worry about rejections. That's all I'm looking for online now.

I've been with AC for about 3 months and I have had over a dozen aricles published, with 7 of them qualifing for an upfront payment. AC is fairly easy to write for. They let you know pretty quickly what they'll offer payments upfront for and what they won't. I have done pretty well with my articles w/ no upfront payment. If you get them "published" on the internet quickly, you can pick up a bunch of views very quickly and find yourself receiving a monthy view payment. I like AC. For me it's easiest to write a story about a current news-related story and quickly publish it for "views"
