I was just wondering which is better: myLot, Helium, or Associated Content? Please with answers to payout info, ease of use, use of information, quality, etc. Don't worry, I'm not going to leave myLot! i was just curious as to whether or not it would be worth it to join the other sites. Please and thank you!

myLot is a discussion based forum. You are paid one to three cents (as far as most people can tell) to post here. I figured that it took about 60 hours to make ten dollars. Once your posts are up, you don't make money while you aren't here. It is a horrible way to make money. Put they do pay (after $10). Helium is a great way to set up a passive income. You write a lot of articles and you make money from them month after month, but it isn't a ton of money. You can make money from the marketplace and contests as well. They pay after you reach $25. Associated Content pays upfront for some articles. They are looking for info that isn't already published. After three years worth of posting there done by a lot of different people, it is sometimes hard to find new stuff. But when you get a great idea you can make upfront money off of it. Plus you make $1.50 per 1000 page views on everything you publish, even stuff that didn't earn upfront payment. They pay your upfront payment within days of publishing and your performance pay as soon as you reach $1.50 and the month rolls over. Figuring out which is best is hard. For me, Helium makes more passive income, but I have found a few niches and made some upfront money with Associated Content.

you are right. I am a member of both Helium and AC. I prefer AC better because of the upfront payment. I like how it gives you a choice wheter to publish it exclusive or non exclusive. Helium to me is a little harder to get money because usually the top 5 are the ones that get more page views and therefore pay more. So if you rank 85 out of 100 chances are your earning will grow slowly. Your rank is based on what your peers rate you.
