19,000 AGLOCO Sign Ups

It’s been twenty days since I did an AGLOCO update. Ever since AGLOCO released the Viewbar, the site has been hammered with requests. The site was so slow I couldn’t log in to check my stats on some days. Things have improved since AGLOCO offloaded the download to Tucows. Here’s where my account stands today.


As you can see, I’ve passed the 19,000 sign up mark. At my current rate of growth, I expect to cross the 20,000 milestone in another eight or nine days. That’s the cool thing about a system like AGLOCO – it will keep building even if I do nothing. You will also noticed that my stats now shows surfing hours. AGLOCO pays up to five hours for personal surfing (I did that while in Taipei) and up to 1.25 hours for everyone in your network. Those 1.25 hours added up to over 2,700 hours so far.

How Payment Will Work

I’ve been receiving a tremendous amount of emails from members (both in my network and outside) asking how payment will work and when we will get paid. At this time, I don’t have all the answers. The next time I talk to AGLOCO, I should have more information. However, I can tell you how the process will work.

At the end of the month (but more likely end of the quarter), AGLOCO will look at how much they brought in from advertising revenue, remove 10% as their fee, and divide the remainder into total network surfing hours. This will give us the pay rate per hour. Take this rate, multiply it by your total network surfing hours and that’s how much you make. Alternatively, you can take shares in the company at a rate of one share per hour. However, my feeling is everyone will take cash with the first payment (if only to show that we do get paid).

What the base pay rate will be is anybody’s guess. I wouldn’t expect it to be too much in the beginning. It will improve as more members join the network and more advertisers become aware of the new market.

Two Keys To Making Money With AGLOCO

The first key is obvious – sign up more people. The more people you have in your network, the more money you make. The second key is to get those people to use the Viewbar. This is a lot harder than it appears. I have 19,108 people in my network but they have surfed a combined 2,717.5 hours out of a maximum possible 23,885 hours. That gives me a NAI (Network Activity Index) of just 11.4%. The NAI will improve as more members download the Viewbar. If I can double the NAI, it would have the same effect as doubling the size of my network.

Now that the Viewbar is out and AGLOCO is able to handle the download requests, signing up new members should be a lot easier. And unlike old members who signed up before the Viewbar (and may have forgotten about it), the new members will start using the Viewbar right away. The best course of action would be to continue signing up new members and remind the old members that the Viewbar is available for download and you can start making money from it.

    Top 0.1%… Sweet!

    1. it means jack if that impressive figure does not turn into cash

      1. Looking forward to seeing when this actually turns into money John.

        1. Jarle says:

          Yeah, with a network as large as his it could actually be worth it.

  2. JoshNash says:

    19105… 😯
    I wonder how much they’ll pay for it.

    1. SEO Blog says:

      If they are smart they’ll pay out as much as they possibly can to generate buzz. Everyone’s waiting for the first payment to see if it’s just a scam or if it will really work. If they get to the end of the month and people get paid pennies they are going to be facing a lot more negative press than they are now.

      1. I honestly am surprised that they managed to sign so many people up without having a payout. If they do follow your advice and have a decent payout it is sure to explode online as a new way to generate revenue.

        1. ritchie says:

          I’m cusious if the economies of scale gone work for this one. users are very suspicious about additional software these days, and rightfully so.

  3. MK says:

    I keep thinking about signing up there, but I know the chances of me making any serious money off it are extremely low.

    I never have referrals for anything x.X

    1. Bill says:

      Has anybody used the tool bar yet or seen one?

      1. John Chow says:

        You can download it anytime by logging into your account.

  4. Andy says:

    Agloco looks preatty good to be honest.

    1. Just as ALL-ADVANTAGE was too good to have distributed $100 million Dollars to participants in 1999-2000!

      wake up friend

    2. well, andy, it’s just a bar

      how good can it be?

      i’ve seen it, used it and uninstalled it

      1. ritchie says:

        I think that’s gonna be the op of most users.

  5. Lance says:

    OMG 😯

  6. Abdalla says:

    Wow, top 0.01 – well done john, just let us know how much you make when they pay out! :mrgreen: 😈

    1. John Chow says:

      Of course! πŸ˜€

      1. Nobody can beat John in honest and transparent disclosures of his blog incomes, and AGLOCO earnings by John would not be an exception.

        He is a trailblazer in that respect.

        1. Ryan Lewis says:

          Have you come across many of these affiliates that forbid you to publish your income?

      2. what if they go broke and noone gets paid?

        1. John Chow says:

          Then you go on to the next project. That’s like asking, “What if Google goes broke and we no longer have AdSense?”

          Never place all your eggs in one basket.

  7. GA says:

    To be honest I think Agloco still needs a month or two. So I would tell people to bare with it for now.

    I have to say that I think the simmonds report is massively overstated at least for the first 8 months or so.

    I have a box of agloco leaflets, I am going to wait a month or two to put them out.

    1. I would rather agree with John that we should wait for Quaterly repoert by AGLOCO to get the full picture.

      Afterall Google Inc. publishes quarterly reports to both shareholders and the general public.

    2. yeah, that’d be a good idea

  8. shaun says:

    Excellent work John if agloco actually works out you will make a killing :mrgreen:

    1. Internet Tv says:

      ell make so much i dont want to think about it

    2. With 19,000 sign ups and counting? Absolutely.

  9. Pam Hoffman says:

    I got their message and I was excited to put up the viewbar only to discover that it won’t work on my system! πŸ‘Ώ

    Any ideas on how to get it set up on a Windows 98SE? I want a piece of the action! I don’t have a big network tho.

    John, any idea if this is hanging people up? Your % may stay low because of this. I’m not sure how many older machines there are out there – it could be a pretty good number. I mean, the computer still works and all.

    Does everyone just rush out to get the latest and the greatest upon every release? I kind of doubt it…

    Just a thought,

    Pam Hoffman

    1. John Chow says:

      While most don’t get the latest and greatest, I doubt many still use Windows 98.

      1. Iskander Abd-Al-Kerim says:

        hi jhon can you tell me roughly how much they look to pay per hour

  10. Paul says:

    The rich get richer 😈

    1. That is the ‘evil’ philosophy as postulated by John Chow. ha ha ha!

    2. Not all rich people are born rich though, so they had to start somewhere, right?

  11. Googlelady says:

    Don’t you think john that agloco can be a scam?
    Made some research about what people are talking about agloco and found a user who says that the agloco toolbar has a virus/spyware.
    Agloco another scam

    What do you think about it?

    1. John Chow says:

      You know, I think working at a job is a scam but billions of people fall for it.

      1. Googlelady says:

        Thanks John for your answer πŸ™„ we have to wait and see the first payments and see how they will pay as they did not take from you an address or even paypal email.

        1. John Chow says:

          If you go to My Account then My Profile, you can enter your address information there.

          1. John Do’t worry as the “doubting Thomases” would soon know that: making money online, is also a faith adventure, and ONLY those who plunge into it, bask in the fullness of the harvest, just like AGLOCO

  12. I think it will be interesting to see how this AGLOCO thing pans out. A lot of skeptics, but a lot of adopters as well. Personally I think with the amount of people they already have signed up, the only way AGLOCO can fail is if they mis-manage the thing to the ground.

    1. Googlelady says:

      or being banned from their affiliate programs accounts.

      1. Yes, but I don’t expect all those Havard guys to mess up. The antecedent of ALL-ADVANTAGE would testify for them.

        Agloco has 3 phases, like I always say, 1. Promises, 2. Proofs and 3. Performance(Payments).

        We are now at the Proofs stage. Where the skepticisms collapse like a pack of cards!

        The next phase which may take some 3-6 months time would be the Payment stage. Because the Phase 2 (PROOFS) is a reality today, the 3rd Phase is inevitable and inescapable for anybody that participates in the Agloco venture.

        1. Still, you can’t take it against the skeptics for wanting to see “phase 3” before signing up themselves, can you?

    2. SEO Blog says:

      “mis-manage the thing to the ground”
      You mean like having countless delays on the view bar that their entire business hinges on? πŸ™„

      Here’s another problem they have: the people that will install this are going to be tech oriented people. Those people are notoriously ad blind and don’t click or convert nearly as often. They’re going to be hard pressed to show advertisers value and if they don’t get advertisers, they won’t have any money to shell out.

  13. Todd says:

    I love the site. I am sure you have answered this question at some point, but I cannot find the answer. What wordpress theme do you use? Just curious.

  14. Todd says:

    What wordpress theme do you use? πŸ˜†

  15. MrGPT says:

    John Chow, I wrote an article about Agloco. It contains how their payment system works, along with how many people have misconceptions of how they think Agloco works.

    Give it a read and you’ll learn some things about Agloco :).

    1. John Chow says:

      I wonder how Traders Narrative feels about your ripping his article?

      1. MrGPT says:

        I didn’t rip it at all.

        I just posted the Agloco hour update at: http://aglocomasses.blogspot.com/2007/06/john-chow-rocks-agloco-hours.html.

        The competition has started in earnest, if you have accumulated referral hours, come and post it and I promise to include you ion the daily and hourly updates. John is leading the pack for now.

          Sorry, the link was messed up. this is the right one.

  16. You are such a lucky man.

  17. Wallace says:

    i have no ideas that why people would join this fake programe even you don’t know how their system work and not sure whether you can get pay.
    if you have not join Agloco,
    i recommend to read this nice post,

    1. Kumiko says:

      Haha!! πŸ˜† I used to have to drop the links in the comments myself!! Thanks!! πŸ˜€

  18. Kumiko says:

    I’m wondering how much money the owners think they will make these days if they’re not even willing to buy a bit more server power to facilitate the downloads. C’mon John…sell them some servers via TTZ!! You’ll be the first to get money from AGLOCO! πŸ™‚

    1. Michael Kwan says:

      John has already made massive amounts of money from AGLOCO, because of all the traffic he’s drawn to this site because of them. His “beta test” video is also linked right on the AGLOCO dashboard when you sign in.

      1. MrGPT says:

        Are you sure they are paying him to advertise AGLOCO?

        1. Wahlau.NET says:

          erm..michael is a guest blogger for jc

      2. Kumiko says:

        If we’re looking at it that way then I’ve made a lot of money from them too! I spent the last few weeks at no.4 in Google for a search on “AGLOCO” before the viewbar hit and everyone else started writing about them. Aaah….them were the days….

        1. We haven’t really seen any direct Agloco earnings, but indirectly it probably has had an effect on its members.

  19. McBilly says:

    Wow! 19000 sign ups. That’s awesome john. I hope my agloco reaches just 10 percent of what you have. 😈

  20. Larry says:

    I’m also interested about money you will make. Because 19 000 is really big number, you can practically have your own Agloco πŸ™‚

    1. MrGPT says:

      Now there’s an idea…

  21. zool says:

    whoa.. get some good idea..

  22. simon says:

    I’m in your network. But I have no sing up so far.

    1. MrGPT says:

      Have you posted your link in forums and on blogs?

  23. tried it but i don’t like it though.

    besides, it’d watch your every move unless you switch it off.

    it could well be some spying programme…

    1. It’s probably safe to assume that Agloco isn’t for everyone. It may work wonderfully for people like John, but could prove to be frustrating for others.

  24. Casey says:

    Dang John! I have maybe 10 referrals…

  25. 19,000 is more than impressive. I could only wish you bigger numbers in the coming months, John.

  26. I downloaded the toolbar the 2nd day after release, and I can say that I’m not impressed. I left it on for 5 days and I know I surfed the internet for more than 5 hours. Yet I still have no hours accumulated on my account.

    1. John Chow says:

      Were you actually surfing the Net or did you just leave it on? Because it only counts when you’re surfing.

  27. Saad Sogair says:

    Please note that AGLOCO pays up to only five hours for personal surfing

    1. MrGPT says:

      Which really sucks.
      I’m guessing that will be less then three dollars. Oh, well, after they sell the shares I mean. Since your really surfing for shares – not cash. That’s assuming they don’t get pulled by the SEC for distributing unregistered shares to the public.


  28. Paul says:

    I don’t think the masses will use the viewbar that much. Other than the search box, it doesn’t really create any value for users.

  29. webd360 says:

    Wow, you definitely have the potential to make lots off of that (depending on how payouts turnout).

  30. Ryan Lewis says:

    I’ve worked for companies that forbid you to download any Viewbars/Toolbars. Do you have any idea what type of information is being sent back to AGLOCO? Any security risks that you’ve come across?

  31. Clement says:

    Wow!More than 19,000 sign ups and more than 2700 surfing hours. That looks great. I just hope that that Agloco will make a decent initial payout.That will surely be a killer punch to the skeptics. But let ,e ask u one question:How to you remind old signups to download the view bar? Do u liaise with Agloco?

    1. MrGPT says:

      And what if they don’t pay? It will be a killer punch to the members part Agloco 😎 .

    2. MrGPT says:

      And what if they don’t pay? It will be a killer punch to the members who are part of Agloco 😎 .

  32. Zaini Hafid says:

    Wow you are cool, very great 19.000 member it’s not easy… I’m just join agloco and just get 3 member.

  33. Nirmal says:

    The payment terms is one thing everyone is waiting for. Lets hope it comes up good. John, we’ll be waiting to see your revenue from Agloco. πŸ˜€

  34. Andrew says:

    My “NAI” is 20.3%, ha!
    But I have only 400 referrals so it’s not comparable πŸ™‚

  35. budi says:

    Hi, Master ,
    I just download and joined agloco and I would like ask you, how to put agloco banner with my ID in my Blog http://secretpaint.blogspot.com


  36. Frank says:

    Maybe the payout will be in Flooz or Beenz.
    I expect AGLOCO will go the way of AllAdvantage and other defunct companies that offered paid-to-surf opportunities back in the dot com heyday.

  37. Jhon hebrink says:

    Then show me the money from Agloco?

  38. those who are suspicious about the system also glance at the report of the Economist.Thanks for your tips and navigations,dear John Chow…

  39. Dammit John.. stop stealing all my referrals. I only have 2.

  40. Johnny says:

    maybe that is the reason why nobody
    signed-up under me… πŸ™„

    congrats john. πŸ˜†

  41. Luca says:

    Hi John! Good work. I’m also glad you liked NAI: it’s the index I defined on Agloco blog πŸ˜€
    I’m happy a great blogger like you use what is an idea by me.
    Of course…my NAI=32,7% at this moment (295 referrals)


  42. Isaac says:

    Wow John, I can’t wait till I refer somebody to AGLOCO. I hope it happens for me soon.

  43. Hi everyone,

    Just wanted to let you know I’ll be interviewing Brian Greenwald of Agloco management during the week of July 8th.

    If you would like to listen to that interview LIVE (or the recording afterward) please register at my site http://www.TheLeaderBlog.com so I can send you the number and exact time we are having it. If you have questions email me at [email protected]

    If you would like to give your input about what questions I ask Brian in the interview, give your input at TheLeaderBlog.com (see the link Agloco Leader Blog). Please help let others know of this interview as well and ask them to share their input for possible questions at http://www.TheLeaderBlog.com

    There you can alsoreview other member suggestions as to what we should ask Brian and submit your own questions, concerns, etc .. if you decide to. I do not promote my referral link or my team’s referral link at my site.

    Partners in success!
    Mike Klingler

  44. Just wanted to say that I think Agloco is really good for those that are looking for long-term residual income. For those kinds of people it is fun to see how it works out.. but you’ll have to really get a lot of referrals now so it will continue to grow into something large if the money would ever be substantial. I have about 3700 referrals and a few in my team of done will with Skype.
