YES!!

Most all the time, but lately they have been turning them down more. And none of us seem to understand that.

Very rarely will I do anything other than upfront payment.

Have you been using onlywire to promote?

I did do onlywire, but I'm so oblivios to all this high tech stuff that I'm not sure if I did it right. Do you need to do it with every article?

Jumping back in I'm going to try to write 20 today, we'll see if that works. I have my titles and one done so far.

My regular job (transcription) is giving me fits right now, so AC to fill the gap

Does anyone know if they are still paying for referrals? I had one sign up under me the other day.

Yeah, they should be.

But if you notice that you are not getting paid for them, email the admin and let them know.

I need to check on a few myself.

Hi everyone!

I just published my first piece on AC. It was actually a paper I wrote for school a couple years ago. I made a video to go with the paper that has done well on youtube, so I thought I might as well publish the written form as well.

So...

I was of the understanding that they were no longer paying for referrals. I could be wrong though. I thought I read that on the forums a while ago.

They declined my article, because it was also posted in the Etsy forums Stink! I shoulda posted it to AC first!

Thanks for the referral info, I didn't see that they gave a bonus any more. The new CP page is confusing.

Are you making goals for the next month already?

This month, I've gotten exactly $4 for every single one of my articles, no matter how long it is or what it's about and I write about a whole bunch of different types of things. Is this the new standard for AC? Are they only going to start paying $4 an article now? I've had the occasional article make $4.01 or $3.99, but nothing other than that. It's weird. I've tried adding more keywords, but that doesn't change a thing.

I use onlywire. I can't tell if it's helping though.

I've made it to clout 7 in just three months of being with AC. Woot!

I have been signed up with AC for a long time- I didn't realize they'd pay up fromt. I think the web-writing skills learned at Suite101 would lead to more pageviews.

twocoolboys.....threecoolboys?

I'm going to check out the AC thing. I just can't imagine ever making it to $4 on Suite for an article.

They do pay up front, but not for all articles. Only the ones that they want. If it's a subject that's too common, they don't pay. Still, once you figure out a good niche that does pay, you can get paid up front for almost all of your articles. I get paid for about 80% of mine.

If you want to know if Onlywire went through then log in to a place like Spurl or Furl or, you know, whatever, and check your archived articles there 5-10 minutes after submission. If it's listed there, it went through.

Just to give you some personal insight on social bookmarking, I use onlywire, digg, and a few other social promotion sites. At Suite 101, I can track where everyone is coming from. Only about 2% of my hits come from social promotion sites. It really is minimal for me. A vast majority of my hits comes from web searches, primarily google, which is good since more people use search engines as opposed to social bookmarking sites.

However, the upside to social promotion is that the more you get your URL out there, the more it bumps you up on the google ranking, moving your article further up the list of sites. Also, several times I do believe my articles got picked up on a blog whose writer found me on a bookmarking site. I would get plenty of hits through the blog, so indirectly it came from the social bookmarking site.

I haven't submitted anything to AC for a while but was wondering did everyone get their w-9 from them??

we just moved and it's likely my mail is lost but I am wanting to finish our taxes.

Other than having a rather sick family, life is very,very good. I've gotten busy with some outside interests and it seems every day we are busy with something. I wish I had time in the day to do everything that I would like.

Not aware of any way to track where your hits are coming from at AC. Sorry.

How about you, what's going on in your world?

There is a call for content about Oprah and the Gift of Fear. I'm not going to claim it so I hope this can be posted here.

On a side note, Oprah started blabbing about neti pots in her show and the Whole Foods and Whole Foods clone here both sold out. I was having sinus issues and it took me a month to find one. : Every time I went into the store, "oh did you see the Oprah show about neti pots?" No, I don't watch tv.

Oprah did that to me, too :

A few years ago, land in the Puna district in Hawaii was the cheapest land in the nation. DH and I decided to sell everything we owned and move here, buy a few acres for $2000, camp on it, and then build our own house. We left everything behind us. Then, after we got here, everyone was like "oh, did you hear about that on the Oprah show? She was just telling everyone to buy land here because it was so cheap."

Two weeks later, there wasn't a stitch of land left in the whole state that we could afford. Prices skyrocketed to fifty times their original value just months after we moved here. Now we're stuck with no way back and no way forward and we've been thrown into poverty.

I wish that woman would just keep her big mouth shut!

okay </rant>
