0 AGLOCO Sign Ups

A lot has been said and read about Agloco ever since they started their Agloco viewbar campaign. Some people are really excited about it, others mock it. And both with good reason. A guy like JohnChow, who managed to get over 20,000 people in his Agloco referral network can count on a nice sum of money if Agloco actually starts to pay their members. He won’t care if it doesn’t though, just by being a member he is getting a tremendous amount of traffic from them.

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.

I love how he says:”I Can’t Believe How Easy This Is”, which is cowshit since the only reason he got that network so big is because he’s already got heaps of traffic coming from his popular blog. Success breeds success. Nothing easy about becoming successful at first though. I guess it’s just John trying to get even more referrals and I can’t blame him.

Agloco has been set up by the same people that brought you AllAdvantage, which crashed and burned in the dotcom bubble years.
Back then I was a part of the hype and used the AllAdvantage toolbar for months without ever getting a dime. This time round, Agloco can kiss my furry cowbutt because I’m not about to install a piece of software which forces me to watch advertisements while I’m browsing the web. Their payout scheme is too vague for my liking.

What most people seem to think is: You Surf, You Get Paid.
The actual process:

    You Surf.
    You Accumulate Limited Hour Units.
    You Convert These Into Agloco Shares.
    You wait until Agloco goes public.
    You Hope They Will Become Profitable.
    Agloco’s Board Declares Cash Dividend.
    You Might Get Paid.

Three guesses who will become rich from this and who will just waste their time and energy. From Agloco’s website:

“Remember, the company is 100% owned by the Members…”

No, it is not. It is a private company owned by a very few.

I say no to Agloco.

(PS I reserve the right the alter my statement in the future when and if Agloco is turning us surfers into dotcow millionaires)

  7. answered in that very same post – Agloco might still be building a mailinglist! What better way to utilize a top 3,000 Alexa site where you require people to sign up? As doubtful as we were about the whole system, seeing that their first attempt ‘AllAdvantage‘ failed miserably too, we hate to do it now, but; TOLD YOU SO! [IMG :twisted: ] [IMG agloco.jpg] What makes us even more biased is the fact that the site still seems to be operational, as if nothing ever happened. Is this just one big email address

  9. ve never done so previously. Then go to John Cow and enjoy a good laugh. Big Applause to the creators of that site! Examples of genius posts: JohnChow.com – http://www.johnchow.com/20000-agloco-sign-ups/ JohnCow.com –http://www.johncow.com/0-agloco-sign-ups/

    Agloco always hinted on being a scam. (strictly my personal opinion) Never tried it myself… I’m joining you bob.. with zero signups :d

  11. Sabrina says:

    The beauty of the program (to me) is 0% cost initially. I’ll try anything that doesn’t cost me money…

    Love the blog!

  12. Ali says:

    You’re my new favorite blog to read!

    Loooove your commentary. Keep it milking.

  13. Vijay says:

    I am as skeptical as you are. And I certainly go with this post

  14. Nice blog.
    I agree with sabrina’s reply.

    call john out on all his misconceptions!! Cow is the man!!

  16. moneygod says:

    Nice blog, I like the way you write.
    I signed up for Agloco through John Chow since it costs me nothing and I managed to download the viewbar. In the end, I just removed the viewbar since it made my computer so slow.

    • John Cow says:

      And yet you have plastered your affiliate code all over the article. I don’t think you’ll get paid for your referrals unless you are using the toolbar too.

      • cooliojones says:

        This is true. For every hour you surf (graze), you will only get paid that number of hours from each referral who also surfs that amount. If you surf 4 and they surf 5, you only get paid for 4 from them. If you surf 5 and they surf 3, you only get paid 3 hours from them.

  17. haha, this blog is ridiculous. keep up the great work, it’s a viral marketing dream with this one on word of mouth!

    I was John Chow’s reader up until yesterday, when I found this blog. OMG, I adore what you did here, I am truly speechless and I absolutely love the irony and parody (like ‘you might get paid’ thing) that springs from here.

    Please, please, please keep the bitter-sweet spirit of this blog and don’t sell ever out!

    OMG! You are the best of the best!
    I agree with you about Aglochow viewbar campaign.

    Now I have to join another community and read another blog.

    Great idea. I had to make a double take when I got my email alert.

    I love JohnCow.com

    This is my new favourite blog. Well any blog that uses the phrase “..can kiss my furry cowbutt.. ” has got to be good, right?

  24. Sueblimely says:

    Glad to read a blog with a bit of meat to it.
    I actually came here looking for ‘A Really Cool Blog Cowtest’
    You will get tired of all the comment puns, sorry.

    Can I add to your list:
    You open the Agloco toolbar, it locks up, you close it and realise you have not surfed your way to wealth yet again.

  25. I wanted to invite everyone to a special live interview with Brian Greenwald who will answer member questions about Agloco on July 11th. Also, I have quite a few articles that may be of interest to you, including a rebuttal to the infamous article, “Agloco: What everyone ought to know about it.” Join in at http://www.TheLeaderBlog.com — by the way, I can understand anyone’s perspective on Agloco; I just happen to think it’s a cool idea that very well may fly. You may also be interested in an article at my site, “Why Agloco Rocks Even at Rock Bottom”… scroll down the first page and you’ll see both articles mentioned here.

  26. mahdi yusuf says:

    seems fishy too me, alot like pyramid schemes :mad:

  27. digitalnomad says:

    I like the way you point blank state that Agloco is not owned by the members as is always wildly assumed and stated in the hype.

    If this were the case, everyone would have stock shares already issued. Sorry for the cow pun, but what a bunch of Bull.

    This will go down in the history books as one of the greatest Internet scams of all time.

    Why the cow pie reservation to reverse your opinion?

    Haha, nice parody site. You should put
    your agloco link here anyhow. Will likely
    attract interested people.

  34. You got some deja vue surreal sh#T going on here!!

    Actually I believe this blog is one for the top of the charts.

    Whatcha mooeing about?

    Agloco will not damage your reputation this way or the other.

    If money is money is made, you make money, if they crash and burn you un-install your viewbar and continue surfing.

    NADA TE PREOCUPE, NI TE PIENSO

    It’s either you earn from it or you don’t earn from it at no cost to you.

    On purely financial grounds it will be advisable to grow your downline just the way John Chow is doing so if they do pay your in the money but at the same time you would not count your cuds before you munch.

    Agloco can work but if it doesn’t you only have a few megabytes of software to remove from your system.
