Associated Content is a valuable resource!

Posted by Mr Dave AC on October 22, 2008

It has been eleven months since I found a website, associated content while doing a job search. I learned that associated content was a database of web content written by a diverse group of content producers. Associated Content pays its content producers a small amount of money for each content submission and also pays Content Producers a performance payment of $1.50 for every thousand page views they gather.  I have been a user of Associated Content fr eleven months and a content producer for the last five months. In this blog entry, I will focus on why Associated Content is a great resource.

Associated Content, like I said, is a database of content written by a wide range of conent producers. There are currently over a million articles submitted by up to three hundred thousand content producers. Say you want to research a random question. Lets say, Frost Hardy Fall Flowers. Real random. Associated Content’s advanced search using all of those four words turns up 69 answers. The articles turned up are informative and diverse; and probably at least ten articles will answer one or more of the questions you had on Frost Hardy Fall Flowers. You may also stumble upon an articl that is interesting and learn something. Each Content roducer offers a slightly different view on the topic and from reading different articles, you get a rounded view of the subject. Sometimes, one article will do a stellar job of answering questions. Last Sunday, I did a search n questions to ask before buying a condo. Associated Content Content Producer Don Levy, a retired mortgage broker who just started writing for Associated Content, wrote a very informative article on buying a condo. I found the article very thorough and informative. So if you have a question, rather than google it, AC it. You help aspiring writers establish themselves and support a truly awesome website. AC has a search tab on every page f the site, so searching couldn’t be easier.

Jagex introduces PKing and PvP worlds!

Posted by Mr Dave AC on October 17, 2008

When RuneScape did away with the Wilderness and player killing (Pking) there was a large outcry among the players of RuneScape about the changes. A lot of players left the game and people began to say that RuneScape was dying. Jagex rushed the summoning skill to try to quell the exodus, but the requests for PvP (player vs player) kept coming, and now Jagex is doing something to satisfy these PvP requests; introducing new PvP worlds in which players can attack each other.

I am happy to announce that the chances I have talked about are reality. You can read the latest info on under the October 15th section on the News page.

New Articles hot off the press (Oct 4th, 2008.)

Posted by Mr Dave AC on October 3, 2008

September saw six new articles publish on Associated Content. With the changing of both the season and the times, they are relevent and important. Here is the overview of the new content.

Halloween is approaching fast, and it’s time to make halloween costumes. For those with children, cheap halloween costumes can be made from a large white t-shirt. For my article on how to make halloween costumes from a t-shirt, visit

For all the woodcarvers out there, this article is the one for you. A woodcarving project I learned was how to carve a movable wooden chain from wood. Want more?

I have written at length on how to turn a sweatshirt into a vest, but what do you do with the sleeves? Make a santa or elf hat! This is a fun project for the holidays.

Money does not come easy these days. In hard economic times such as these, any way of earning money must be examined and looked into. So far, these have worked for me.

While we are talking about money, how can one ever buy a house while the prices are still low if the current house will not sell! Here is what you can do to improve your chances of selling your house.

And finally, back to RuneScape. Runescape is introducing special PvP worlds where RuneScape players can engage in combat almost anywhere in the game!

Mr Dave RuneScape Web Log changes direction:

Posted by Mr Dave AC on October 3, 2008

Browsing Associated Content I ran across the profile of Associated Content content producer RS who has 7.8 million page views. My curiosity got the better of me and so I decided to track the weekly page views of ten random CP’s to see where I measured up. My content is producing OK results but 23 pieces of content cannot really do much even with stellar results. After the week, I realised that the leading content producer on Associated Content gets 120,000 page views per week! (with 4k articles) I realise that RuneScape is a waste of time. My runescape articles are averaging 1.79 page views per article per day, while my other articles average 2.32 PVPAPD. Of the eight RuneScape articles, there are five duds, two average producers, and one ace. Of the fifteen other articles, I have eight duds, three average, and four aces, a better average. I set up the blog to share my runescape knowledge but the trouble with RuneScape is that it ends up taking a lot of time to play. Whoever designed the game was a genius. It is easy to get established and by the time the levels get trickier, the player is addicted. I smithed for a straight month and only leveled from 68 to 75. Of course, I try to balance computer time with a full time job and writing articles for associated content. The new direction of this blog will be all aspects except plants, which will be dealt with in MrDaveGardener’s blog; my plant blog. Currently, my main focus will be my presence on Associated Content. I use Associated Content to share my knowledge from my experience to the internet world and rather than waste my time repeating it here, go to Thanks for stopping by.
