I've looked into Associated Content as another means of earning extra $ on the Internet. When you write articles for the site, what are the estimate earnings you receive per article? And does it really depend on anything? Topic, responses, page views, etc.? Thanks.

I use associated content. I am from the UK and only get paid on page views. I joined three weeks ago, have 23 articles on there and they paid me $3.96 a few days ago. I have not put on any articles for a week on that site, so it is not bad making money from not doing alot. If you are in the US it pays really well. There are people earning big on that site. What is good you can write anything you want to. I recommend this website to anyone.

So are you saying there are different paygrades depending on what country you come from? You said that if you are from the US they pay very well, yet 23 articles only got $3.96 (based on page view rankings) for a person from the UK...

Yes, you have to be a US citizen to really get paid from them. They pay for your articles by offering you amounts when they are published. If you are Non Us you only get paid on the page views, I was going to quit this site as I am from the UK until I got paid the other day. If you have some articles sitting doing nothing, put them on there and do nothing but add one now and again. If I lived in the US I would be writing a lot for them. Sorry I am not very good ar explaining things well.

Yes, it depends on a lot of things. First, it depends on your rating. You get paid by the page view, so much per thousand, and how much you get paid is determined by your rating. They pay outright for timely articles and good writing. They won't pay outright - but you can still make money with page views - for almost anything else. Read the contract to see what will affect you. It can be a good money maker, even if you don't live in the US, but you have to work at it, just like you'd work at anything else.
