Welcome to the reviewer. We review movies, money making opportunities, online stores,
products, music and everything else that you can think of.


Many months ago I discovered on the net a program called Agloco. If you joined Agloco you were suppose to download a viewbar that would sit on the bottom of your screen and make some good money by doing what you normally do anyway, surf the net. When I joined you could not download the viewbar yet though as Agloco was in beta and all members were waiting patiently for what seemed like forever to be able to get the toolbar. In the meantime, your job was to recruit others into Agloco which would drastically add to your later earnings. Many people who joined really promoted heavily and got hundreds if not thousands under them. Me personally, after joining forgot all about the program and never recruited one person. I got reminded one day of the program though when I received an E-mail stating that the viewbar was now available to download. For some reason I still did not feel to good about Agloco and passed on it. Plus I didn't really know what I was downloading onto my computer, call me paranoid but I like protecting my investment, don't need any viruses or spyware on my computer. I checked out some forums on the Agloco topic and noticed many critics saying that Agloco would never work, just as I've felt all along. Of course, you also had the supporters of the program giving their views. Some called it a scam, I beg to defer. I don't think Agloco was ever a scam. I mean, usually when a scam is involved people get ripped off of their hard earned money, Agloco was free, so it was not a scam. I think what it was, was just something that didn't work out the way it was supposed to, many of us seen that though way before it happened. Here is how the program was suppose to work. This is from the official Agloco website.

AGLOCO makes money for its Members in many ways:
  • Search: Every time you use the Viewbar™ to do an Internet search, AGLOCO earns money from the search engine providers. (For example, Google pays as much as $0.10 on average for each search that is directed to its search engine.)

  • Advertising: The Viewbar™ itself displays ads that are targeted based upon the websites you’re visiting. When you click on an ad and make a purchase, AGLOCO receives a referral fee, which we pass on to our Members. (Please note: Individual members do not receive any compensation for clicking on ads in the Viewbar™, and the Viewbar™ can detect if someone is clicking ads in a fraudulent manner.)

  • Transaction commissions: Many major retailers pay commissions when you refer customers who make a purchase. AGLOCO collects that commission and passes it on to our members. (For example, Amazon pays an 8.5% commission to most websites who refer customers, and has cut deals for even larger percentages. The bigger the AGLOCO community, the better commission we can negotiate for our Members.)

  • Software distribution: Numerous software companies pay websites to encourage the download of new software releases (for example, Adobe’s Flash and Acrobat Reader software), and trial versions of new programs. AGLOCO members not only get access to the latest and coolest software, they get paid for it.

  • Service distribution: Many online service providers will look to the AGLOCO community as a source of new and active users for their services. (For example, eBay, Skype, and PayPal, among others, all pay fees to people who help them recruit new active users to their services)

  • Product distribution: When Members agree to use a product, such as cell phones, high-tech gadgets, office supplies, new credit cards or financial services, AGLOCO can collect referral fees. Some companies even offer special rebate and cash-back programs.
AGLOCO Members make money in four ways.
  • Members earn a monthly share of the AGLOCO revenue based on the use of the AGLOCO Viewbar™ that month.
  • Members earn part of the company based on the use of the AGLOCO Viewbar™ that month (currently a maximum of five hours are rewarded).
  • Members who use our referral system to help build the AGLOCO network will earn more. (AGLOCO only has significant value as a large network and people who help build it should be rewarded. – We also feel that the early users who told friends about YouTube or MySpace or even Google probably deserved something too, but no referral system was available to record their work).
  • Members will also get a share of any commissions AGLOCO gets when a Member purchases a product or service from an AGLOCO Sponsor company.
It all sounded good at the time and it was a great idea but as Queen once said "Another one bites the dust". Finally time for Agloco to see it too. Received this E-mail from them recently.

We would like to update you on the status of AGLOCO's operations. We continue to believe in the AGLOCO concept, but our revenue is currently not sufficient to give Members a meaningful distribution. And though there are increases in membership, the resulting revenue is not enough to support operating costs. As a development team we are unable to continue to use our savings to fund the operations. If any Member would like to pursue continuing the operations of AGLOCO, you may contact us at agloco1@live.com
We would like to thank every Member for supporting our effort to bring a piece of the Internet directly to the user. We hope that we can find a way to keep the operations going.
AGLOCO Development Team

I am so glad that I did not waste my time with this one. Would have been hours and hours wasted!

I give Agloco a big thumbs down.
