Make Money With AGLOCO Update

Here’s a little update on my AllAdvantage 2.0 – Get Paid To Surf The Net post. I received quite a few questions about it so I figure I’ll answer them here.

You should get an auto email once you sign up. If you don’t then check your spam folder. Chances are it’s in there. This has happen to quite a few people already.

The Viewbar is currently in limited beta testing. Once final testing is completed, it will be made available for all Members to download. The Beta testers are all volunteers and are not earning any revenue for trying out the system.

In the meantime, you as an early Member can continue to recruit new Members and start building out your network. As an early Member, you have the best chance to recruit your friends since they will not yet know about it. As the AGLOCO Membership expands some of your friends will sign up under other people and no longer be able to be recruited. So seize this ground floor opportunity to build your network up.

The best way to sign people up is to embed your affiliate ID into the URL. For example, http://www.agloco.com/r/BBBB0743 is my URL. Just replace the BBBB0743 with your ID and you’ll get credit for all sign ups from your link. This is much better than sending an affiliate to AGLOCO and asking them to enter your ID into the referral box. When you embed your ID into the URL, there is no referral box to fill out.

Get Paid To Surf The Net!This page has already created a few AGLOCO buttons and banners for you to add to your website or blog. You can link these banners direct to your AGLOCO sign up page or link them to your blog entry about the AGLOCO service.

I think it would be best to link it to your blog post because the sign up page doesn’t tell much. Your blog post is what will get people to sing up. I am linking the button to the sign up page here because it’s part of this post.

    I am using hotmail service for registering this. Anyway, email sent by AGLOCO is not in spam folder.

    Dude, get Gmail already, it’s great.

  3. Hi John,

    Thanks for the heads up, just signed up under your referral!

    “HELLO, my name is: agloco (i own the internet)”

    Brilliant!

    So the sketchy idea is that you get mostly company stock for signing users up.. but someone would actually have to start viewing those ads for some real money to roll in.

    Is this a ‘Windows IE’-only thing? Are they going to have this ‘click here to make sure you’re still paying attention’ pop-ups again (or was that from another similar ‘service’ back then)?

    Why would you do this to your friends and readers John?

    The technology might be better, but so is the counter-technology. It’s easier to cheat the system than it was before. Today I can write better, more intelligent scripts – faster! And with virtualization I can pretend to be several different clients from a single box, at the same time.

    AGLOCO is protecting itself from loss by not actually putting their own cash on the line this time, but this will not stop some huge click-fraud / view-fraud suite from bringing all of this down… again.

  5. Jez says:

    Cant find any information on the plug in, how easy it is to un-install, how much bandwidth it uses, what it actually does / records.

    Would it be fair to describe this program as spyware?

    Anyone received spam pushing this product yet?

    Have to agree with others in that only a few people with big sites to push their referrals will get anything out of this.

    As for “own the internet”, a bit of a sham when AGLOCO own 10% of your screen space and are presumably generating all kinds of stats with your data.

    I would be interested to know whether John Crow runs this software on his own PC?

  6. Eliza says:

    I signed up through your link, hope you get paid for it. Now to start making money, I figured if you made $25,000 the last time it was around it was worth a shot. Now just to get word to spread right?

  7. Nomar says:

    Good explanation !! helpfull

  8. Bruce Watson says:

    Hey John,

    That is great, I think this thing will work. If everyone gets on board we all can make a little coin.

  9. John Chow says:

    Tony – I believe there will be a level of cheating, just like there are cheaters in AdSense. You will never kill the problem. You can only try to make it as small as possible. The last time around AllAdvantage paid for up to 25 hours of surfing per month. This time, they’re starting with 5 hours. If you have to cheat to get 5 hours of surf time a month, well.

    The spyware issue, I don’t know about. According to their privacy statement, all it says is they use cookies to track your surfing habits.

    Eliza – Spread the word. πŸ™‚

  10. Brad says:

    I liked the idea so much I made a site about it.
    http://www.aglocowatch.com
    I really want to follow the user experience people have with it and maybe help with some tips. This could be very fun as time goes by.

  11. Nick says:

    Could someone try to sign up using http://www.agloco.com/r/BBBB2173? I asked my friends to sign up through my affiliate link and all of them got this error: my account is emporarily unavailable. Does this happen to you too?

  12. Nick says:

    please erase the question mark at the end of the affiliate link

  13. John Chow says:

    Your account looks fine to me. Your landing page is correct.

  14. Nick says:

    So what could be wrong?

  15. James says:

    John how can you promote this bullshit, seriously?

  16. Tony says:

    I meant more along the lines of automation, having a bot ‘surf the net’ in my place. 5 hour limit would just require me to operate a larger account network, but don’t I get a bonus for refering myself anyways?

    By the way, has anyone actually tried reading their Privacy Policy? I’ve just skimmed over it:

    “You may request that a paper copy of your Personal Data be sent to you by contacting our support organization using the form at (insert URL)
    and
    “You may object at any time to our processing of your Personal Data by contacting our support organization using the membership cancellation process at (Insert URL).”

    And if want to quit, I have to email [email protected] ? And all my info/details will still remain until “deleted according to a schedule established by AGLOCO”?

  17. John Chow says:

    Tony – I don’t know how they will do their fraud detection and I don’t expect them to tell me. Just like I don’t expect Google to tell how they detect fake clicks. There’s also the ROI to consider. When I was in AllAdvantage I think I made 30 cents per month off each member (mind you I had over 10,000 members and increasing by 100 per day). 30 cents per month. That’s 1 Google click. How much money would a scammer need to invest to dupe 10,000 members? What you think is more profitable? Defrauding this of defrauding Google?

    James – I can promote it very well.

  18. Tony says:

    Good point John. There are certanly better ways of getting more money with the same amount of effort (cheating the system that is).

  19. emokid says:

    ive signed too.. anyone willing to sign up under me? that would be much appreacited. thanks πŸ™‚

  20. David Mackey says:

    I’m thinking about whether this is really an effort I want to invest time into. I’ll kick myself if it ends up working and I don’t. πŸ™‚

  21. weirdoux says:

    hi john,

    i just sign up under you.
    good luck eveybody!

  22. geldseiten says:

    Hi John

    I’ve also signed. Made a short Description about the Site (in german):
    http://www.geldseiten.com/artikel/internet/001/agloco-das-internet-gehoert-dir.html

  23. emokid says:

    how come no one sign ups under me πŸ™ this is so sad..

  24. Wim says:

    John, how many ppl are under you allready? πŸ™‚

  25. John Chow says:

    geldseiten – Looks good! Good luck with it.

    David Mackey – We’re going to party like it’s 1999 all over again! πŸ™‚

    Wim – About 300.

  26. Paul says:

    John,

    Why do they pay more if your referrals get referrals? The same number of people can be signed up yet the difference in earnings is huge. It would make sense to promote your referral’s ID and build a two tiered program. Any thoughts?

    Paul.

  27. Simonne says:

    Hi,

    I got the same problem as Nick: I asked somebody to sign up through my affiliate link and he got the same error: my account is temporarily unavailable. And he never got the confirmation e-mail.

  28. John Chow says:

    Paul – They don’t pay more. The dollar value maybe higher because there will be a lot more people in your extend referrals. It’s the way the calculator work. If you sign up 10 and those 10 sign up 10 and so on, you’ll have 10 people in your Direct Referrals and 111,100 in your Extended Referrals. You will make more per member for your Direct referrals and less for Extended, but because the Extend has more people, it will make overall more money.

  29. John Chow says:

    Simonne – That issue has now being fixed. I found this on the AGLOCO blog:

    Some Members have had issues with their referral URL stating that their account was unavailable. We have fixed the proble, and would like to thank everyone for bringing it to our attention.

  30. Dave says:

    I signed up John and I’m going to make a point of tracking my extended network and posting their successes. So far I have 2 but hopefully that number will grow to make the exercise worth my time and effort.

    If anyone is interested in participating in my study please feel free to sign up under me at:

    I also gave you a mention John in my post yesterday over at http://www.poscribes.com/node/302

    Thanks for the heads up on this John, it’s about time the average user can profit from the many hours spent on-line!

  31. Dave says:

    Please remove the ” at the end of the link above, it should read:

    Thanks.

  32. Frank says:

    I also signed up under you John. Been reading your site for a while. I used your 10 best wordpesss plug-ins to create an Agloco news site. http://www.agloconews.com

    Also setup a forum for anyone who wants to discuss Agloco at http://www.aglocochat.com (come on over it is lonely)

  33. Jeremy says:

    This is very interesting. I’m surprised that there is actually something legitimate to make easy money. I’m still a bit skeptical, but I plan on giving it a thorough testing before recommending it to my friends and such.

  34. I have been in network marketing for about 2 years and have a good size list its time to go promote πŸ™‚

  35. I think AGLOCO is a great idea and only wish I had heard of this back in 1999 so I could report that I had made thousands back then too.

    I wrote my own review and addressed the spyware issue. The point I made in it is that spyware means that your online acrivity is being tracked without your knowledge. It makes no sense to call something spyware if you are voluntarily letting it track your activity for advertising and monetizing (on your end too) purposes.

  36. Stephen says:

    No one knows what that mythical bar tracks. It may track your surfing habits yes to target the ads, but it may also track other things in the background that you aren’t aware of, which by your definition, would make that part of the software Spyware. Until someone gets a hold of that bar and checks it out (without being a beta tester under NDA), saying it is or isn’t at this point is silly. But I remain optimistically skeptical.

    The 1999 equivalent was AllAdvantage.

  37. John Chow says:

    Well I can say it has NO SPYWARE because I have the word of the founder. How bad would it look for him and AGLOCO if spyware was found after he gave his word that it had none?

    It would kill the company.

  38. May I know what is AGLOCO payment method?

    what is the min requirement for us to cash out?

    And what is the processing fees?

    Thanks,
    [email protected]

  39. John Chow says:

    Don’t know what the payment method is. When AllAdvantage was around, they paid by check and there were no processing fees.

  40. Casey says:

    Any idea when the viewbar will be released?

  41. Any new news on agloco?
