AGLOCO is a new money making scheme that pays its members to surf the web. Agloco also pay its members for friends they refer and so on. Basically it’s a combination of various online activities which are

      Social networking
      Referral program
      Online shopping
      Software downloading

    The concept is similar to the now defunct All Advantage, where people get paid by installing a toolbar on their web browser to view ads. It was reported that AGLOCO was founded by the same people who created AllAdvantage.

    One of the biggest proponents of AGLOCO at the moment is John Chow who has recruited one of the largest numbers of downline in the AGLOCO network.

    Darren Rowse of ProBlogger.net has also written about his first impressions on AGLOCO. Like Darren, I also think that it just seems to be a lot of promises but nothing concrete as to how the concept would really benefit advertisers and members in the long run.

    While I try to be open minded about it, I can’t help but be a little skeptical about how this MLM and ‘paid to surf’ combination would be able to stay afloat for long. What differentiate AGLOGO from a typical “pyramid/ponzi scheme” though is that there’s no cost involved to participate in AGLOCO. Old members are not being paid by new members.

    Anyway, Shawn Collins has written about how he has been getting spam emails from AGLOCO themselves and how they claimed that Bill Gates was behind the idea.

    In one of the posts, Brian Greenwald, one of the AGLOCO Development Team members stated

    “We have comments from Bill Gates (and now this week, YouTube Founder Chad Hurley) indicating that we are on the right track.”

    The saddest thing is, Bill Gates and Chad Hurley comments have nothing to do with AGLOCO.

    I think we need to be open-minded in assessing Agloco’s viability, although some of u may like to compare it with her predecessor, Alladvantage, which had proved to be a short-lived company.

    I’ve recently found on the internet a blog entry, the author of which has done an extensive study on the internet ad market and Agloco. Although it may not be among the best analysis on Agloco, at least she has made a sincere and insightful attempt to approach this topic at a Macro-level. I think it worths reading. Here is the link:


  • The point is not that Bill Gates or Chad Hurley said anything at all specifically about AGLOCO. It’s that they made favorable comments about revenue sharing among members, which is one of the cornerstones of AGLOCO.

    It did work with AllAdvantage. I wouldn’t count AGLOCO as a phantom scam. John Chow can testify to that.

  • Bill Gates and You Tube founder behind it?

    That’s clearly a turn off.. 😉

    This better toolbar that a lot of marketer like I think must be InstantBuzz.

    At least the model of how it works are clearer.

    I’ve heard a lot of people talking and also blogging about AGLOCO. I’m too being much skeptical on this whole Agloco concept.

    First they did not declare properly that their viewbar is under progress, then I notice the progress and launch date of the viewbar remains unpublished.

    I noticed Agloco has been spam-advertising in some low end money making sites, where they appear side by side with those spam-alike ads.

    Let’s just see

    What Shawn Collins says about Bill and Chad is correct and I plan to blast a few people for spreading miss-information in my next AGLOCO update.
