Agloco -- Get Paid to Surf the Net... Again!

This time I'm reviewing a company named Agloco, a new paid-to-surf site that has the whole internet peeing their pants, and sort of the reason I started my blog! Agloco, as I mentioned, pays you to surf the internet, or at least they say they will, and uses the pyramid-esque method of referral incentive-based advertising. The program works by using software they call the viewbar, which they claim should be released by the end of April. The company was launched many months ago by members of the Alladvantage in hopes of reclaiming their previous internet glory (glory until their company tanked).

There has been a lot of controversy on the internet about Agloco since its inception, as immediately after its discovery all sorts of douchebags decided to start blogging and promoting and buying google adwords and doing all sorts of stuff to start racking up those referrals! As I mentioned, Agloco uses referral incentive-based advertising; the company doesn't have to advertise, the users do! In return, Agloco gives you portions of the profit pie according to how much your referrals earn as well. Therefore, there is a big incentive to start racking up those referrals, so I guess that's why the company launched more than six months before they had even released software! Searching google for the term "agloco" yields a motherlode of people shelling out money and abusing the Google pagerank system to get their referral numbers to go up! Check it out!

Well, now that I've proven something that we already knew (people are greedy fuckers), let's move on.

How does it work? Well, from the way the site describes it, you put a little viewbar thingy, on the bottom of your screen which displays advertisements and has a search window available for use. Then, you surf the web for up to 5 hours a month, and Agloco compensates you with cash and "stock shares". I don't know about the latter, but they say that they'll pay you. Free money for doing something you already do, that sounds good.

I've signed up for Agloco. I even have a referral link! Have I bought google adwords and plugged it into every signature of every forum I belong to? Nah, but I will provide my link on this blog to anyone generous enough to use it, assuming they actually ever release the viewbar and become a paying company, but that's another matter...

Everyone on the internet was extremely excited to hear about Agloco, that is until some negative Nancy posted THIS article on his blog, titled "What Everyone Ought to Know about Agloco." I'm not going to dispute his claims, but I do have to say one thing about the entire article. Who cares greaseface? It's not like Agloco is selling you anything, so why not give it a try? With a little prudence, the worst case scenario is a little bit of your basic contact information gets out on the net. My question is, whose hasn't? I'm sure mine has! The only people who really stand to lose if this fails are the dipshits who bought the advertisements looking to make their magical internet numbers go up (referrals), and I don't really care if they give Google a couple hundred bucks. Google is alright in my book.

Before my nose gets completely brown, I must say, I'm a bit skeptical too. They keep giving dates for the viewbar, those dates never happen. Wasn't the viewbar originally supposed to be out in February or March? Yeah, their most recent deadline, April 15th (at the latest) sure didn't pan out. They speak of a team in Shanghai in their company blog. Have we seen any proof of this? Nah. If Agloco comes out with their viewbar and all is in order, I will eat my words. I actually expect them to, because Alladvantage was a stand up company (while it lasted).

My recommendation? Join Agloco, you have absolutely nothing to lose. Start getting some referrals in line, too. When (assuming it is) Agloco's viewbar is released, you'll be happy you had a jump start!

The Verdict:

Give it a try, even though I am a little skeptical.

Lately after interacting some of the industry experts, I developed a methodology to earn continuous stream of income. The mantra is to earn money thorugh multiple streams, this will cut down on the risks involved. Do check my site, where I have listed out all free and easy money making oppotunities, check[url=http://www.earn-online-money.com]Earn Easy Online Money[/url].

Well, If you have ever thought about writing some script to automate those things that you do several times every day, then you have a great and easy way to automate the entir e process. It comes without saying that a few imacros and firefox add-ons will automate all actions related to a browser (Mozilla). If you wish to automate your system as such, then you may need some other script, easy commands will automate your system. Even a beginner can automate things using a simple software called as sikuli all you need to do is to tell Sikuli what to do by giving some screenshots and simple commands.
A GUI will be used with Sikuli. Sikuli is an open siurce scripting application that will use a combination of simple commands like click, type, wait and so on. There's no internal API support, it simply searches the screen for the image in the screenshot-which implies that you'll use it for anything. There is literally no limit on how you use it to automate things.
This is too good to be true, but if you watch the subsequent video, you will come to know that this can be extremely easy. If you visit their home page, you get a lot of tutorials and support; it can be a cake walk even for beginners. You'll check the video as well as get the software at [url=http://technoages.com/operating-system/apple-mac-os/automate-everything-through-a-simple-script-make-your-computer-listen-to-you/]TechnoAges.com[/url]

Paid surveys were traditionally conducted; by mail, in person, over the phone. However, the internet has allowed companies to administer real paid surveys quicker and more efficiently. A legitimate paid survey done online, decreases product pre-release costs, and gives them valuable information about their product.
