Along with all the other things I do to make money online, I am also a Content Producer for Associated Content. AC pays up front for well-written, and well optimized, articles that are more than 400 words in length.
I started working with Associated Content at the end of May this year, and while I don’t write for them constantly, I have really enjoyed the site. AC also offers what they call a “page view bonus”. In a nutshell, each time your article gets viewed, you make money. No, it’s not a lot, but it’s just one more stream of passive income that I have coming in. The “work” part is done when I submit the articles,- now the articles are working for me!
And, THAT works for me! 🙂
As of this recent page view update, my articles have had over 13,000 page views. Not bad – it’s an extra $20 or so.
Here’s the thing that made me go “hmmmm” when I reviewed my page view stats on Associated Content. I have ONE article that has received over 7,600 views! I was innocently scrolling thru my stats…. a hundred here, coupla hundred there…. then “WHOA! 7,697?!?!?!?”
That ONE article is responsible for over 60% of ALL my page views?!?!?! How could THAT happen?
Thing is, I remember stumbling across that keyword. I was doing my usual browsing thru my keyword tool, browsing thru Google…browsing thru AC….and this phrase seemed pretty “un-tapped”, but was highly searched for. So, I took a chance, researched the content…and wrote an article on it.
Associated Content paid me less than $5 for that article….I’ve already made twice that in the form of page view bonus…in a VERY short amount of time.
This makes me happy 🙂 (<--- See me smiling?)

I’m going to guess Why Gorillas Don’t like Cell Phones – Illegal Mining For Rare Ore Used In Cells Is Pushing Them Out of Their Habitat since it’s a little different from the rest of the articles you have listed.
Got another guess?
I’m going to guess that it’s Unusual Baby Boy Names – Common Sense Versus Colorful Immagination
Nope, d smith, not that one, either. That article is quite new. I sure HOPE it does as well as the “mystery article”! =)
As I’m new to this blog I have to say, that I liked reading it a lot and just want you to keep up the good work.
As for the Mystery Article I have my guess on:
Important Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Questions to Ask Yourself
Hope I win the package. It sounds really good, but buying is a bit difficult here for a 16-year old from Germany that isn’t allowed to have a credit card or PayPal 🙁
Sorry, Matthias – that’s not it either =(
I’ll take a guess if it’s not too late. Is the answer to the One AC Article “Simple Tips for a Super Sedu Hairstyle”?
Your blog is incredible. I’ve spent an hour reading many of your posts today and have picked up many tips and confirmed a few thoughts along the way about Squidoo as well.
I have a feeling it’s the Preparing For Marine Boot camp one. Wow.. this is an old post!
Has anyone won this yet? If not, here’s my pick:
“Top 5 Elvis songs For Your Wedding First Dance”
I think the winning article is:
Win the Lottery! – How to Choose Pick 3 Lottery Numbers Without Guessing
I hope so, I never win anything…here’s hoping this will be my first!!
