Came across an interesting blog entry by EzineArticles expert author John Lockwood who compared EzineArticles to Associated Content: Freelance Face-Off: EzineArticles Versus Associated Content
“Two popular web sites where you can publish your articles are EzineArticles.com and Associated Content. The two are very different in how they compensate authors. I’ve tried both sites, and even though Associated Content pays their writers a small amount for their work, in the long run I believe freelancers will profit more from writing free articles on EzineArticles.com.”
We agree with John and glad to see he ‘gets it’. Most freelance writers want to write and profit instantly only vs. writing to attract traffic back to your website where you can sell further products & services.
