Improved information on what customers are buying

I'd like to suggest that CC provides deeper, more comprehensive information on the type of articles that customers are purchasing. Doing this would help us create content hat's more in line with what customers are looking for, and increase sales. That's good for writers, and for CC. I have some sugg...

Re: Please give us access again to update keywords and price

We didn't intend to remove that functionality; which browser was it not working for you in? I'll have a look and get that fixed asap. It's Google Chrome - Version 45.0.2454.85 m; I did try clearing cache, cookies etc and no joy. I *can* make updates in Microsoft Edge. Thanks for looking into this.

Please give us access again to update keywords and prices

A request to Constant Content - Please allow us to edit the keywords and pricing on articles that have already been accepted. I know that we *used* to be able to do this, and that the facility was taken away. I had to delete and resubmit old articles, which were then rejected (even though nothing ha...

Re: Keyword Phrases

Hi, I assume you are writing on spec rather than for a request, as you mention buyers finding the article, and you mean the keywords that you enter near the bottom of the submission form. I don't think the editors particularly pay attention to the words you put in as key words on the submission for...

Re: New Constant Content Site

Do you have a date yet for when you're going to be launching the new site? It looks great, fits in really nicely with the design trends and responsiveness over the last couple of years. It can only be good for our content sales - Good job.

Re: Reviews and Tutorials

Tutorials are easy to write in the second person:

Step 1 - You need to do this
Step 2 - You should do that

Etc.

Re: Issues adjusting license prices or adding keywords

Hmmm - So we can't reduce prices if articles aren't selling? That seems.... odd.

Issues adjusting license prices or adding keywords

Just wondering if anyone else is having a problem with updating license prices (usage in this case) or adding keywords to the last box on the submissions page? I have some older articles that I want to add keywords to and reduce the license prices on, but when I click 'save changes', my amendments d...

Re: Full Rights License Question

Thanks Lysis; I did run the content through CopyScape Pro and got no hits, but I appreciate the advice. It looks like sticking to usage only is the way to go.

Full Rights License Question

Hi there, quick question. I have a few articles that were previously published on another website but that are now unpublished and not indexed by Google; from an SEO perspective, they are original content. Can I add these articles to CC under a Full or Unique rights license, or do they need to be of...

Re: A note on suspensions

Agreed, I have been nervous about posting more articles due to the concerns on the forum with strange rejects from editors and did not want to run afoul of that. Just out of interest Eric, what do you consider to be an 'established' writer, in terms of number of articles accepted etc?

Re: Humorous Article Deleted

I haven't known editors or other people at CC to come back on policy decisions on articles on the forums, and I'm not sure what more insight we can provide as writers. I have found that a significant part of whether you are accepted or not does depend on which editor reviews your articles, some are ...
