An Easy Way to Get Paid for Something You Already Do

Anyone that browses the web for more than 5 hours a month should sign up with AGLOCO to get paid.

Here is the basic outline of the idea in the company’s words:

Advertisers, search providers and online retailers are paying billions to reach you while you surf. How much of that money are you making?

AGLOCO collects money from those companies on behalf of its members. (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!

AGLOCO will work to get its Members their share of this and more. AGLOCO is building a new form of online community that they call an Economic Network. They are not only paying Members their fair share, but they’re building a community that will generate the same kind of fortune as YouTube. But instead of that wealth making only a few people rich, the entire community will get its share.

Sounds pretty good doesn’t it, but what is the catch? There doesn’t really seem to be one and there is absolutely no spyware.

Here is how AGLOCO works. First you download the AGLOCO toolbar. When you want to get paid for searching the web, you open this toolbar and it sits at the bottom of your browser. The toolbar monitors your browsing and displays ads that you can (and will) choose to ignore. The maximum time you can be paid to browse is 5 hours a month.

This isn’t where the real money is made though. The real money comes from referrals. Anytime you refer someone else to join AGLOCO you make money from them and all the people they refer up to 5 degrees of separation. If you build a large network of referrals you can make serious cash.

The idea behind AGLOCO is not brand new. The same idea was used under the name of AllAdvantage in the early 2000′s, but went under in the first dotcom crash. Before it did people like John Chow made a lot of money. Chow made $27,000 himself.

If you’d like to sign up for AGLOCO and start building your network of referrals click here. This is a very easy thing you can do to build up some passive income. What do you have to lose?

    It is impossible to sign up with AGLOCO ,as there is a code word given at the last,and i tried to enter it 500 times,but failed.

    Yes, I’ve also seen some issues with the AGLOCO website. Wait a bit and try back later to see if they fixed it. That worked for me.

    Hey, nice blog there John. Love the design and the content.

    I remember AllAdvantage days fondly. I was back in college with a lot of free time, so me and friends spent our days figuring out various ways to cheat the system – mouse movers, etc.

    Finally, we came up with something I still think ingenious – tied the mouse to a fan that would move from right to left, and left it on as we went to class. Living in the dorms, we didn’t pay for electricity, so it was a perfect money-making scheme.

    Unfortunately, we never saw any money as AllAdvantage crashed and burned :-)

    I think the site made $27.32 which upon shutdown I gave to charity. Fun project, no money.

    Good luck with your site.

    Big John,

    I’ve created a username and password with AGLOCO but haven’t been able to download the viewbar. Am I missing something?

    Also, I ready to get intense about referring people to this program. However, it would help if I knew if you’ve made any money with this or not. I couldn’t get a clear answer on their website, just something like “Sign-up now and when we eventually go public you’ll be rewarded with stock shares.” Just trying to get an understanding of the economics of the company and AGLOCO is very vague, only offering a “Monthly Hours accumulated towards earnings” calculation.

    Let me know your thoughts.

  • James Thompson

    You are going to be amazingly rich after this. You sir, found an amazing way to make money on your Blog. I used your referral link cause I thoroughly love your blog, you are a wise man. If some random schmuck offered me this, I would probably hurt him and ignore the referral link.

  • http://www.pickthebrain.com John Wesley

    I don’t think anyone will be getting amazingly rich off this, but some extra cash without much effort never hurts. Thanks for signing up, and I’m glad you like the site.

    I’ve seen a lot of these kind of ads. Has anyone made any real money off of this? Not credits or points, I mean real money that they have held in their hand? Just wanted to ask before I start this thing up. Thanks.

    Al,

    AGLOCO is still in the startup phase, they haven’t released the toolbar, so no one has started making money yet. They are going to release it later this month, so it will be interesting to see how it goes.

    An earlier company (AllAdvantage) ran on the exact same model 5 years ago. Through that some people made $25,000+ but they had a lot of referrals. The average user probably won’t make all the much, but its possible if you get a lot of people to join. The good part is that it’s free, so there is no way to lost money at least.

  • Al

    I’ll def. keep checking up on your website. Hopefully something good will come of this (AGLOCO)… It would be a first. As for referrals, being military I know people across the U.S. so if it were to work it would build up nicely.

    Erm, that’s kind of the definition of SpyWare.

  • http://www.pickthebrain.com John Wesley

    Perhaps, but I think spyware generally means something that intrudes your computer without permission. I don’t think AGLOCO has any hidden spyware, they tell you what you’re doing.

    how can i download viewbar??

  • http://www.pickthebrain.com John Wesley

    It isn’t out yet, but it is coming soon. If you join, you’ll be notified when the viewbar is released.

    Will: I noticed your comment – no, AGLOCO’s not spyware by definition (Computer software that obtains information from a user’s computer without the user’s knowledge or consent); more like adware (free software that displays ads). Just a technicality. : )

  • Nope

    What you give up is control over how much noise from ads enters your surfing. Better targeted ads might be useful, but it is not clear that I’ll benefit as much as the ad providers or ALGOCO does.

    However, the biggest thing that you give up is your privacy – e.g.; surfing history. Google and Microsoft forsee big profits from this in the future. Meantime, there is a lot to loose to the likes of ALGOCO.

    Hey guys,

    I’m not here to tell you AGLOCO is utter nonesense, but it is definately worth reading this prior to committing too much time to this project:

    Obviously, stick to your guns if you think it IS worth it.

    Ciao,

    I’ll sign up and download the viewbar the instant I get my own computer, my mom thinks it’s a MLM scam. (Even though you don’t HAVE to refer people)

    I have a question for you John. When you have a network of, say, 2-5 generations of referals, would you recieve more money per person (not total) in the higher generations of your network or is it equal across all levels? I’m not sure if I should use your link or the link of someone else I know who got referred by you. Whichever makes everyone more money.
