Yahoo Contributor Network pay - Associated Content Pay
Yahoo! Contributor Network (formerly known as Associated Content) allows writers to publish articles and receive compensation for it. Associated Content is not an Employer. When you sign up for an Associated Content Account, you become an independent contractor, meaning that you are solely responsible for your own content and its performance. That means that Associated Content does not pay you a salary. How can you earn money with Associated Content? You may choose to complete Associated Content Assignments with a set up-front pay, you may submit articles to be considered for upfront payments, or, you may choose "performance only" payments, meaning that you will only get paid for the pageviews. From my experience, articles submitted for upfront payments and approved by Associated Content get more traffic and pageviews.
So how much does Associated Content pay per article? Depending on the quality and the topic of your article, Associated Content can offer between $2 and $15 for it. When you sign up for an assignment from the Assignment desk, Associated Content pay is usually between $2 and $25, but sometimes as much as $100, depending on the topic and the quality of your writing..

05/11/11 Today is Yahoo Contributor Pay Day for me. I got $1.67 for Associated Content articles this month. I have got some upfront payments for a few of the articles, so it's nice to get monthly payments for pageviews without doing any additional work :)
08/11/11 Still enjoying small payments from articles written several months ago. I didn't check my Yahoo contributor account for almost a month and today I logged in to see $1.55 payment from Yahoo Contributor Network. Please note that I only have 16 articles. I already got up-front payments for several of them. So this small payments are just nice little bonuses. From what I understand, Yahoo Contributor Network pays me some time soon after my "unpaid" pageviews reach around 1000. So as soon as I get 1000 new pageviews, I get $1.50+/- performance payments.
03/01/13 It's been forever since the last time I posted here. I figured it's time to give you an update. I haven't been active on Yahoo! at all. Just haven't been able to fit it into my schedule. In the past 2 years, I have published maybe 2-3 articles... I have been steadily getting around $2 to $2.50 per quarter in performance payments. As I have said before, the site has plenty of potential for those who decide to make it their primary presence online or are looking for a supplemental income. But what can I say, I prefer Squidoo :)

Squidoo Pay and Yahoo Contributor Network Review
What is Squidoo? Squidoo is a publishing platform that allows users to publish articles or mini-blogs, called "lenses". When compared to Yahoo Contributor Network (formely Associated Content), Squidoo has a lot more publishing options. Although you do need to read over Squidoo publishing guidelines, Squidoo lenses go "live" as soon as they are published without submission to administrators for review (with Associated Content, it may take as long as 2-3 weeks for the article to go live, and chances are, you will be asked to make some corrections to the article to meet Yahoo Contributor Network standard before article is published). Besides Text modules, you can use Video module (for example, include YouTube videos), include RSS from your blog, suggest Google links for more information, post photos, and so much more. What I like about Squidoo is that you are more in control of your content and that you can include your affiliate links and graphics and make money by sending readers to Amazon and Ebay. You can also promote your Etsy Shop items, if you run an Etsy shop. Squidoo pay is very generous, if you get consistent high visitor traffic. For 1st Tier lenses, Squidoo pays as much as $25-$30, and $4-$6 for 2nd Tier lenses. Consistent traffic means monthly pay, so if your lens stays in Tier 1, that's $300+ per year for just one lens plus the affiliate commissions. What you do need to take into consideration is that there are only 2,000 lenses that can be in Tier 1 and only 8,000 lenses that can be in Tier 2, so keeping your lenses in top Tiers will take some work - updating, backlinking, etc. But if you figure Squidoo out, you will certainly be rewarded.
From my experience, it is easier to get Google traffic for a Squidoo lens than for a Yahoo Contributor Network article - Google likes the variety of modules on Squidoo, and you can keep your content updated by editing the lens at any time. I am a big Squidoo fan, and if you are trying to choose between Squidoo and Yahoo Contributor Network, I would strongly suggest Squidoo. Squidoo is a great site for promoting a business - Etsy, Ebay, Zazzle Shops, etc. and an excellent place for making commissions off affiliate sales. However, Yahoo Contributor Network does have a few nice things to offer. While Squidoo pays you for lens performance and the affiliate commissions, Yahoo offers up-front + performance payment options. So if you are a good writer, who can create unique content that is in demand (people are actively searching for the key words in your article), Yahoo Network is a good place to make some quick cash (they pay shortly after your approved article goes live) and benefit from the performance payments - if you get good traffic to your Associated Content and your topic has a long shelf life, you can collect performance payments for years to come.
07/28/11 I am spending more time on Squidoo this days - I guess the variety of modules I can use on Squidoo is really what draws me to Squidoo. Also, I like to make money with affiliate marketing vs. simply posting articles and getting paid for views.
