I need to know for which articles i get payment, because all that i choose say i will be paid $0.00 Another fact is the posting of copied articles. Why are they asking me for the source if they say it must be original? Please give me some advice! 10x

If they are going to pay you for something, it wouldn't be made by someone else and used without permission. There may be some instances where something is used with permission (like, cited as a reference, or, a graphic used with permission. This you would have to find out from them). When you go through the process of writing an article it asks you if you are submitting it for payment consideration or for no payment. No payment articles are published nearly immediately and even if it is a topic they won't pay for (such as humor), it could be published for no payment. I only selected "No Payment" as an option when I had written a good article that they said the topic was too general, and I thought it was a good article that I wanted for people to see, so I sent it back through the system anyway. It will still accrue a bit of money for pageviews, I think. And any links I put in it that will make me money will still make me money. They are a good site.

They want original material because they have a bit more professional appeal. This weeds out weak writers and people who just want to make a quick buck. From their point of view, you need to understand that they have to make money in order for you to make money.

Unfortunately, AC won't pay authors who don't live in the United States. That would be why you aren't able to get paid for any of your articles. I suspect that you would also not be eligible for the page view bonuses, so there is probably no way for you to make money through AC. As for the source, I think they are looking for places where readers can find more information on the same topic. Not sure about that, though, as I don't recall having ever seen that come up on my articles.

I am pretty sure that poetry doesn't pay, but AC pays for content in most other categories as long as your article meets their requirements. Be sure to select that you are submitting it for payment consideration when given the option to select. As far as copying articles, it is against the law to plagiarize articles so do not do it. They are asking for sources in case you cite information from another source within your article. Make sure that you document any citations that you make so that you do not run into trouble later. For instance, I wrote an article on a local festival in my area and referenced their website for some of the details of the event. In this case, I gave their website as a source for my article because this is where I had gotten some of my information for my article. My content page is here http://www.associatedcontent.com/user/47194/kelly60.html At the time I am posting this, my article has been accepted but is not yet published, but if you want to see what I am talking about, it should be published soon.
