Associated Content Upfront Payment Advice?

United States
September 24, 2010 1:33pm CST
Last week, I started writing articles for Associated Content. Every article I write is written with the intention of hopefully scoring an upfront payment. The first article that I submitted did indeed end up being purchased. I'm okay with the upfront payment only being two dollars and some cents for that article, but I do have a question though. I have read that Associated Content takes into consideration, to some unknown extent, how many page views a person's articles have been getting, and that is a factor in determining how much one gets offered for an article. Has anyone here that writes for Associated Content found this to be true? I know some of the other factors Associated Content takes into consideration is how well the article is written and how valuable the topic is in regards to being picked up by search engines and bringing in advertisement revenue, but the impact of previous total article views on how much the current article is likely to be purchased for is something that I'm interested in learning more about. Thanks in advance.

Great post. I am interested in getting into Associated Content as well. The way I understand it is that you get paid up front depending on the quality of the written article. You also make additional revenue based on the number of page views your article receives. I think it is 1.50 per 1000 views. Best of luck writing.
