Hope this helpful to anyone on the sites, or anyone thinking of joining them. Just reached the $25 payout last week on Helium. You must request payment there by the 20th of the month, and will be paid by the 10th day of the next month, I think. Took me 6 weeks to reach the payout. I have 80 plus articles on Helium, and have 100's of links to those articles. Most of my articles there are ranked #1, nearly all are sports articles, which are popular there. The most I've earned on one article is $6.23. All things considered, Helium does not really pay well, but I've noticed they are paying slightly better than they used too. They still need to pay more, in my opinion. I have given Helium between 5,000 and 7,500 page views. I have 26 articles on Associated Content and have been paid $132 for them. I have also earned $3.25 in the new bonus system. Need to get to $15 in bonus money to get paid it. I have given AC roughly 2200 page views. They pay me via paypal and they do so in a timely fashion. How come AC can pay me $132 for 2200 page views, but Helium only $25 for 3 times as many page views?

I too belong to both sites. I have only published on AC though. I couldn't quite figure out the Helium program. Maybe I was just having one of those days. I love AC and wouldn't change for anything. I like getting paid soon after the article is published, not having to request payment and the fact that it is a great network. If I were in your shoes, I would be very frusterated at Helium right now. Somehow, that just doesn't sound right. I wish you luck. Visit me on AC if you'd like...I'll do the same for you. http://www.associatedcontent.com/user/15512/cindi_beavers.html

I think this might be the company policy and we have to abide with the rules set by the webmaster.

I am a huge fan of Associated Content. They pay when they say they are going to pay and although the offers aren't outstanding, the are fair. There are certainly a few glitches with AC, but overall, they are a reputable and good company to work for. I enjoy it and am pleased with all aspects..
