20,000 AGLOCO Sign Ups

Today seems to be the day for passing milestones. Not only did I passed the 6,000 RSS milestone but I just checked my AGLOCO stats and it looks like I’ve passed the 20,000 sign up milestone.


I Can’t Believe How Easy This Is

I have to tell you, AGLOCO is pretty easy once you lay in the foundation. I haven’t done anything to promote it other than these updates and the thing just keeps on growing. At the current rate of growth, I’ll have 40,000 people in my network by the end of the year. The network has taken on a life of its own. Even if I wanted to stop it (which I don’t), I couldn’t. This is the power of a system like AGOCO – you do the work once and it could reward you for the rest of your life.

Surfing five hours a month is like nothing. I did my five hours on the second day of the month. I had forgotten to engage the Viewbar on the first day. Once the five hours of surfing was completed, I turned the Viewbar off and wait for next month. I hope they increase the number of surf hours soon because five hours is way too easy. While I am credited with a maximum five hours of surf time, my network has accumulated over 1,000 hours so far this month. I expect network surfing to hit over 7,000 hours this month, which will be double the previous month.

It’s All About Risk Vs. Reward

Even if AGLOCO completely tanks and doesn’t pay out a cent, it won’t cost me anything. As a matter of fact, I’ve already made money just by being a member. The AGLOCO website sends me a tremendous amount of traffic. This is because they link to my Viewbar video on the member account page. The traffic AGLOCO sends me is very well targeted. People running the AGLOCO Viewbar wants to make money online and that’s one of the things this blog teaches.

Doubters can say what they want about AGLOCO. It doesn’t really matter. The network will keep growing because the risk to reward ratio is so low, there is really no reason not the sign up. It cost you nothing to join and the worst case scenario is you make money. I can’t state it any more simpler than that.

    Can making money be as easy as that? If so I’m in!

    I’m thinking back to previous posts but did anyone ever look into the security level of AGLOCO?

    I love the idea of turning it off once the 5 hours is done.

    1. Mybloggo says:

      I also do that….

      1. Cash Quests says:

        I really hope that your network remembers to turn it back on every month!

        1. with the initial delay and the fact that nobody has been paid for it, it’s just suspicious.

          then again, it doesn’t cost you anything

          i do hope it’s not a scam and it’d work out for everybody involved

          1. Marc says:

            It’s only a scam if they’re lying. They’re pretty up front with it all, it’s just a bit of a roll of the dice from the outset.

          2. lewis empire, it’s a good question about the security of agloco.

            i think it’s safe to use in terms of catching a virus is concerned; you do need to be careful though as it does in a way “spying” on your activities

        2. cooliojones says:

          I was thinking about that, but I just made a recurring appointment in Outlook for every month to prevent me forgetting. All you need is one day and you got your requirement!!

    2. Goob says:

      I’ve been burned by way too many of these “pay to surf” programs in the past. I hope they pay out to John in the end, but I wouldn’t be surprised if more than a few of us never saw a cent from them.

      1. Marc says:

        The point John always pushes though is how burned can you get. Sure it’s not fun to not get paid, but if you’re looking at Agloco as a gamble, what is it that you really risk?

  2. Simon says:

    20,000 damn. I’ll be quite chuffed when I get to 10 🙄

    1. it shouldn’t be hard…good luck

  3. Steven says:

    Everyone I came across had way to much doubt. They dislike the idea of having to download and install anything, particularly when there is money involved, they think its a scam in some odd way. I found that the amount of time I have to spend explaining to everyone wasn’t worth trying to get people to sign up. I stopped at 13.

    I am sure John has such a large reader base and have no problem recruiting (obvious by his growth in numbers) but for others such as myself, it was awfully time consuming trying to convince people it isn’t a scam and the fact that there are so many unanswered questions about payment at this time, it was even more difficult. I made a lengthy page explaining everything in detailed including videos and even linked to the agloco site only to have people lose their attention span and going back to me asking more questions about Agloco.

    I don’t doubt it can make money, but to me who don’t have a huge reader base blog and having to convince people have been a very difficult task. I am sure some others feel the same at some point.

    1. Cash Quests says:

      If you have to convince people yourself, the AGLOCO marketing team have failed..wait..there isn’t an AGLOCO marketing team….maybe that’s the problem.

      1. James says:

        I think the idea of getting people to sign up means you are the marketing.
        That said, it’s not much of a product. It is very much of those who get in first make money and if you think about getting in now you will not likely see anything. Agloco must provide a real service to the users or they will just leave it off.
        With 20000 in network and 7000 hours of surfing, right now only one of every 13 are using it. My math is probably off but it is still not much of a user ratio.

        1. Goob says:

          The problem is that you spend way too much time telling people it isn’t a pyramid scheme and that they’ll make money if they just trust you on it. Then if they don’t, you’ve lost more than a little sway with your friends and family. And thus in the end, it’s just not worth the time and effort to a lot of people.

    2. GuyLingo says:

      Hi Steven,

      I think you are totally right on this one. For John Chow, this is a no-brainer and he has absolutely nothing to lose. However, for the majority of bloggers out there, pushing AGLOCO on there readers is not a good idea for the reasons you outlined.

      If I am wrong, I will be the first to admit it, but I don’t think anyone is going to be making money from AGLOCO when it is all said and done. As my grandfather used to say, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” And if someone does make money, it will be John Chow, not the rest of us! 😉


      1. even if you do make some money, you wouldn’t easily get it, as you can’t make the minimum payout unless you get a vast following like john chow does

        1. cash quest, they do have a marketing team

          they do a reasonable job with the resources given

          they would’ve done better with more money…and that’s the problem…they don’t have enough…and no investors are interested in investing either, not that we know anyway

    3. Pierre Mensah says:

      Why Steven, you must be a mind reader since you’re been just taking the words outta my mouth!
      Since I’m one hell of an skeptic:
      Even that I myself just signed up a couple of days ago only, I’m still as much puzzled as on the first moment I went over this agloco thing.
      I’ve got my ass burned so many times, same as you, by fraudulent “earn extra cash – no risk” schemes (but was all the time told I have to pay a more or less small fee for setting-ups, memberschip, expanses and what so ever) and in the end I got nothing but an certain amount of new experience and knowledge and some bucks missing in my purse.
      But, even that is something one couldn’t kick back at Agloco, since they don’t ask for even a damn nickle to pay to them for their service or what ever one could call it.
      So, indeed, if this thing just pops like an soap bubble, one wouldn’t stay worse at the end than in the beginning, since I give a damn and a hoot whether I have some small bar running at one corner of my PC or not. And I don’t worry about spyware nor viruses since I have a quite good anto spy- and viruns software that wouldn’t let anything out wothout my explicit consent. And, the Agloco surf bar is not even entered into my firewall, so it could tahe nothing in nor out in the way of male ware.
      This whole matter is to me at the time being worse than the book with the seven seals on.
      So I guess, there is nothing much to do as just sit and wait and look – either it works by some kind of magic or it plops, in neither way I would have lost even a nickle. So whaqt the hell, let’s give it a chance as long as it wouldn’ hurt me.

  4. simon says:

    20,000 AGLOCO Sign Ups!! wow!! I have none sign up so for because I haven’t start to promote it yet.

  5. Starboykb says:

    😯 WHAT 20000!?! OMG, I only got 5 but all inactive. 🙄 But however, this is quite strange for some reason. I am quite a heavy internet user. But the hours just can’t seems to add up and not even reach to 5 hours. I already updated to the latest version.

    – i agree, but the problem is, agloco have not start paying anything to members yet, thats why its very hard to convince many peope to believe and join agloco. Until then, we will have to see.

    1. i may well be wrong here, but my understanding is agloco makes money by people clicking on the ads on the agloco viewbar, now if nobody clicks on the ads, nobody earns; that means agloco members have to click on the ads on their own machine.

      if that’s the case, it’s nothing but a scam

      1. Agloco makes money by showcasing the products of advertisers through the Viewbar to all Agloco members that downloaded the Viewbar.

        It is not a PPC system. Nobody need to click any ads, just using the sheer numbers of membership to draw out advertisers into the pool.

        I posted on my blog about the ‘powerful’ advertisers behind agloco here: http://aglocomasses.blogspot.com/2007/07/know-advertisers-behind-agloco.html

      2. Lewis Empire says:

        If they want people looking at their ads, yet people turn off the viewbar after only 5 hours per month then what would advertisers be paying for?

        1. well, it’s not good enough as no serious advertisers signing up

      3. CFernandes says:

        Just because you have to click on the ads to make money doesn´t mean its a scam. How does google make money? By you clicking on the ads… duh!

  6. Simon says:

    Cool, I just checked and now and I’m up to 8 in my network, last time I checked I had 3. And I haven’t even been promoting.

    1. well, congrats

      see, it’s not hard after all

      hopefully, you’d make some money with it

  7. Carl says:

    So where’s the money?

    1. Simon says:

      Give it a little time, they just made the viewbar available.

      1. Cash Quests says:

        According their company blog, you’re probably looking at another 6 months before you get paid. How many people will continue to turn on their viewbar for six months without being paid?

        1. John Chow says:

          According to mt stats, my Network Activity Index was just under 12%. This month it looks to increase to 15% to 17%, which is a little lower than the AllAdvantage days. Once AGLOCO starts paying I don’t expect NAI to go much above 25% because that’s the way these types of system work (it’s the way most things work).

          1. john, have you any idea how many have signed up with agloco?

        2. cooliojones says:

          Well you have to look at it like this…It takes up such a small footprint, and you were going to surf the web anyway. If it works out, cool. If not, you only lost like 3% of your screen space, and after it’s there for a while you probably ignore it anyway.

  8. Cash Quests says:

    Good work Mr Chow! I’m sure your network will increase once they remove the link to their free blogspot.com blog on the AGLOCO homepage!

    You gotta love a company with a blogspot blog!

    1. hi cash quests, i don’t know which blog you saw, but they’re hosting their blog on their own server using the popular blogging platform WordPress

      1. Cash Quests says:

        Yes, but the link from the AGLOCO homepage points to a blogspot address. The blogspot address then points to the wordpress site.

    2. John Chow says:

      What blogspot blog? AGLOCO’s blog is on their own dedicated server. http://blog.agloco.com/

      1. that’s what i meant

        thanks john

    3. Kumiko, what is your take? Give them a break! You were until recently a queen of free blogspot.com LOL.

  9. Paul B says:

    I’ve just broke the 20 mark 😀 ! Although most seem inactive AND my own hours don’t seem to add up (Has anyone else noticed the green/red status at the bottom right of the viewbar?) The few that have used it appear to have given up quick smartish but thats what you get for twisting the arms of friends.

    Like John says though, it’s potential money for nothing, a few blog posts and an alternative downlaod page cost me minutes of my time. If it works great, if not then onto the next thing.

  10. sam bam bam says:

    “It cost you nothing to join and the worst case scenario is you make money.”

    Well, the worst case scenario is that you DON’T make money.

    1. good point.

      the worst scenario is that not only don’t you make money, you’ll also waste your valueable time

  11. shman says:

    Great work John, You are great in MLM 😉

  12. It is easy when you get some referrals that are even better than you in referring.

  13. Coop search says:

    What are the methods of payment they are giving?

    1. Lewis Empire says:

      I’m sure it’s posted on their site.

      1. well coop search, there is no point worrying about that just yet

  14. Michael says:

    Risk to Reward ratio.

    I think I will use my time testing other risky business.


  15. just read agloco blog, people

    then you’d know that you may never get paid for what you work hard for….with agloco

    what if it’s spying on you….obviously it could

    they know exactly where you’re, what you see on the internet….

    scary thought?…hmmm… :mrgreen:

  16. You mean the worst case scenario being that you “won’t” make any money. Another down side are those bloggers who promote AGLOCO could face some scrutiny if AGLOCO doesn’t pull through.

  17. I think it is time to try AGLOCO, but the security holes could be really scary! 🙁

  18. the trasher says:


    in my agloco comunity had joined 2 direct referrals and 4 extended in last month and a half.

    i didn’t promote it, i just up a banner in my blog.

    i hape for you, and sad for me 🙁

    its seems that you don’t have a limit, wish you 60.000 for the end of the year



  19. I’m leary to give this a try.

  20. Guillermo says:

    Awesome! Congrats on your milestone… You certainly deserve it!

  21. nick says:

    Good work!

  22. Casey says:

    Congrats on the 20k!

    1. Goob says:

      Yeah, I never did say congrats to John on hitting the 20k mark 🙂 Despite my misgivings about a site like this, it’s certainly working for him!

  23. Andy says:

    Nice one!

    It only seemed a while ago that you got 19,000.

    1. Only days ago, I think. With minimal promotions on Agloco, John’s doing very well for himself.

  24. Jeffrey says:

    Owwwwps! I think am lost here.

    I thought Agloco is similar to MyBlogLog. I dont like the idea of making with basically doing nothing. Well, goodbye Agloco!

    I did sign up though.

    1. it’s not the same at all

      for a start, with mybloglog, it doesn’t involve any downloading and installing any software

      then you wouldn’t make money directly with mybloglog, though it could help increase the traffic to your site and ideally help you make more money

  25. Jaime says:

    I am in your AGLOCO network. I saw your numbers, but how much money do you earn with this?

  26. Matt says:

    Well, that’s great John… for you. But I’ve already uninstalled the Agloco viewbar because it’s a redundant waste of space. It’s ugly, has no functionality, freezes and it does not reflect the six months they spent “making it”. The Agloco website is regularly down, meaning people can’t sign up.

    The initial sign up level was incredibly low compared to what they were aiming for. Agloco is great if you can build up a network of people willing to use a pointless accessory, but somehow I find myself in the top 20% of all Agloco users with none of my many referals signed up and only a few hours of usage of the viewbar. Go figure.

    John will get paid, of course, but not many others will.

    1. The rich get richer, eh? Could just be a temporary glitch though.

  27. Michael says:

    John, I would send you an email, but …

    Anyway, I thought you should know that someone is selling a website on SitePoint.com called JohnCow.com It is supposed to be a 99% replica of your site.


    1. I’ve been reading a few comments on here made my a certain John Cow — could he be the same guy behind this?

      1. the net is full of copy-cats, there are few originality.

  28. mylotter says:

    I really can’t believe you have got so many referrals!!
    I have only 50 referrals!
    wow, I can’t imagine your payment from Agloco when the payout day comes!

  29. Hip Hop says:

    I think I will join later on…

  30. WOW!!! 20,000 sign ups! Great job John. I think you should have a contest for people to guess what would be the total number of sign ups by end of July.
    Good luck.

  31. do join if you think you can get a lot referrels like john

    you never know, it might just well be the next big thing

  32. ricdes says:

    What a scam… why should something work now which did not even work in the internet bubble of 2000? huh? 💡

    Keep dreaming.

    1. It’s not for everyone — that seems to be apparent.

    2. AllAdvantage worked for thousands of their users before the dot com burst in 2000.

    3. Marc says:

      If you read up on it, they’ve come to the table this time with a much better business plan. They took the lessons they learned and moved forward. While it may be the same people and same basic idea, this is not the same plan.

  33. Joshua says:

    Anyone want Agloco123.com ? :mrgreen:

  34. Looks like the other people in your network aren’t as diligent as you at surfing the 5 hours.

  35. Jason says:

    It’s not a scam, it’s a pyramid program. Everybody at the bottom level is running the program wanting to make money. John is at the top because he is using a massive network of people as references to make money. I personally stopped using it a week ago because I didn’t think it was worth the time. The banner at the bottom is not too noticable, but serves me no real purpose and is not going to make me a noticable amount of money. Maybe when I have the influence to get a large amount of referals I will try something like this, until then I’m out.

  36. Ulchie says:

    I think it is entirely possible that Agloco may earn the average user $25 to $50 a month eventually, perhaps not right away though. But to truly earny any REAL money, you must refer a bunch of people in a large network, like what John has done.

    For a lot of younger kids and people that don’t make much money, $25 to $50 a month is a big deal as it can translate to $600 a year. I’m just guessing on my stats and numbers, by the way.

    But people like John may make some big bucks. Can you imagine if it turns out to be a unique type of social networking traffic, and the company goes pubic, what the shares could be worth – though if too many people choose the share option there will be massive shareholder dilution on a regular basis. The shares could be a good option for someone like John though… He could own a good portion of the company if it is successful and most people will probably take the money anyways.

    My question is: what will the company do with all the retained money from people getting shares instead of the money? Are they going to buy other internet media companies with all this extra cash? Seriously, knowing what they plan to do with the retained money is a big factor. What is the strategy after the basic business model is successful… what would they do with all this money? I think this is a major question that needs to be asked and answered.

  37. Art says:

    that is awesome, keep it rollin’

  38. MoneyNing says:

    It’s great to see that you are getting so many people under your account!!! I probably missed the boat on this one so I will wait for the next one.

  39. Paul Bradish says:

    Congratulations on what you have accomplished with Agloco. I’ve been hesitant to promote the nav bar, though I do use it myself. I did make $30/month from AllAdvantage back in the day 🙂

  40. CFernandes says:

    I have a pretty good post on my blog explaning why its not a pyramid scheme (it transfers the money making from the webmasters to the web surfers). But John chow is wrong about one thing. If we disable the viewbar after 5 hours a month how is Agloco going to make money? Would google make money if they shut off adsense after we browsed the web for more than five hours on a given day?

    1. cooliojones says:

      But what is the incentive to keep it going? To help AGLOCO make more money? That’s their problem. When you break it down, we’re all beta testers of their program, so if they haven’t thought that part all the way through, I’m with John, I’m not helping, especially if the payment is already deferred for some moths in the beginning.

  41. Jason says:

    I also use them but I didnt sign up under anyone…now i have 13 people under me…wooohoooooo haha….pass a couple my way….

  42. Asil says:


    I just joined your network…

  43. chtanxw says:

    Personally, I think 5 hours per month is too little. I surf the internet more than 10 hours everyday for the last ten months! Many of us do hope Agloco can increase this quota.

  44. Please stop stealing my potential subscribers!

  45. Wahlau.NET says:

    5 hours is pretty little, but this way you could earn from those who actually doesn’t use computer that much

  46. cooliojones says:

    I would also tell people that when signing up for these programs, DO NOT put your SSN in the field, even if it asks you to. Some sites have insecure forms (yes, even the “big boys”), and if they really need it you can get it to them later on.

  47. Congrats on the 20k John. Hopefully AGLOCO will become quite profitable ensuring you and other AGLOCO Members a very nice chunk of cash.

  48. Eren says:

    What they are saying is not possible.
    Agloco says:
    (For example, Google currently pays AOL 10 cents for every Google search by an AOL user. And Google still has enough profit to pay $1.6 billion dollars for YouTube, an 18-month old site full of content that YouTube’s users did not get paid for!

    Google will never pay 10 cents for every search to AOL.
    Why would they pay. You are not using google because you are member of AOL. But you are using google because you need it.

    What AOL says is impossible. Only when they make active advertisiment on our pc, they can earn money. And give money to AOL members as share.

    Did anyone get money until now, from AOL???

  49. Shubham says:

    God! I’ll have to work 20 times harder to get to where you are John.
    You’ve got to check out John Cow site, i hope there’s nothing like that for me!

  50. alek says:

    I have only ten extens referal.How to make communuty for the people come to join me.

  51. feve says:

    i think once AGLOCO actually sends out payment to the members they will gain more creditability and then there will a serious increase in membership.

    i’m in the top 8% and don’t even have 30 people in my network. at the moment ALGOCO is driven by bigger dogs, such as yourself.

    i’ve chosen not to spend any money to promote it, but if they prove themselves by actually making some payments to people…

    well, we’ll see.

  52. ayse says:

    ya bana yardımcı olun ingilizcem yok ve ben ne yapacağımı bilmiyorum 😥

  53. egon says:

    I’m really curious to see the actual payout numbers with Agloco. I was thinking about starting up, but I guess I’m just being lazy about it.

  54. Jacob says:

    AGLOCO is going well for me, but the hardest part now is getting the other people to use the viewbar.

  55. vin says:

    i m new in this field
    any body can help me to find a friend
    and help to understand some about this?

  56. Mike says:

    Hi all,

    I had a great interview with Agloco founder, Brian Greenwald on Wednesday (July 11th)–anyone who is interested you can listen to the interview. I’m a lot more excited after talking with Brian.

    Here’s a direct link to play the audio:

  57. gzone says:

    Well I have to say at my current I will have me at the end of the year.

  58. prabhat says:

    without any payment i could not arise a believe in my refferal. so pl. help me, how to arise believe for better working in the soel of usser.


    prabhat 😳

  59. Ezzat says:

    When are agloco gonna do the PayOut thing?
    If the payout works, John will be $$
