If you are a beginner web writer, writing for Associated Content (AC) is a great place to get your feet wet and earn money while you learn the techniques of writing keyword rich articles that are search engine optimized.
Associated Content identifies itself as an “Open Content Network,” which enables anyone to publish content on any topic, in any format (text, video, audio and images), and connects that content to consumers, partners and advertisers. AC offers upfront payments for many articles as well as a performance bonus of $1.50 per 1000 page views. The more you write, the more you can earn while you learn the techniques of producing original content for the Web.
Sign up is easy and everyone is approved. AC welcomes the aspiring web writer, the accomplished professional web content producer, and everyone in between. You have complete freedom to write on any topic at any time, with a couple of notable exceptions. Associated Content does not allow lewd/pornographic material or any article that might reasonably be construed as hate speech. Beyond those, you may write about everything from how to split the atom to your grandmother’s heirloom recipes. Dish the dirt on the latest Hollywood gossip or write an editorial opinion on the regressive nature of the federal income tax. You may cover a broad range of topics or focus exclusively on a single one and brand yourself as an expert. The choice is strictly up to you.
With all this writing freedom, you will be able to focus on finding your own writer’s voice while learning to search engine optimize (SEO) your articles for the web. Learning how to write your articles with searchable keywords and understanding where and how often to include those keywords in your article, will go a long way toward driving search engine traffic and readership to your articles on Associated Content. There are, quite literally, millions of sources available on the web where you can find information on SEO. One of the best resources, however, can be found right in the community forum at Associated Content. There, fellow content producers have posted extremely helpful tutorials to give you a leg up and a quick start on writing articles with optimum SEO. Even better, you can get one-on-one help and answers to your specific questions in the forums, too.
