Agloco.com is suppose to be the next great online money maker. There have been countless big names (John Chow, Joel Comm, etc) that have been actively promoting and recommending the Agloco.com opportunity. I even had some of my closest web buddies encouraging me to sign up. But there has been a nagging feeling within me that is telling me it isn't worth the effort. You see I was a big AllAdvantage.com referrer and user in the 90's. I really loved that company. It was one of the early ways I made money online and by far the easiest. It gave me a warm feeling every time I would dial into my Internet connection (remember those days?) and the alladvantage.com toolbar would go green. I was literally being paid to be online! How great was that? But alas that opportunity eventually ended.
The reason AllAdvantage eventually crumbled was because their business model wasn't sustainable albeit creative for the time. So when Agloco was introduced to me, it had a striking resemblance to the defunct AllAdvantage.com. Agloco is basically a company that pays you to download a toolbar and you'll get paid for your usual internet activities such as surfing the web, reading email, etc. You also get paid for your referrals Internet activities which has been the driving force as to why so many people are recommending this opportunity.
So when considering the characteristics of this opportunity it's almost identical to the failed AllAdvantage.com business model. It just wasn't very apparent to me how they were any different than AllAdvantage.com. Could that failed business model be what Agloco.com is touting as the next big thing? Apparently yes!
So based on my experience in the past with AllAdvantage.com, Agloco.com definitely doesn't seem like a feasible opportunity. It's hard for me to call it a flat out scam because at the end of the day no one is really losing anything here. It's not like anyone paid to be part of this program and now they've realized that they won't be earning any money. But let's just say that Agloco.com is just not something I would waste your time on until they have proven that they are actually paying people.
But the way things are looking now, it doesn't even look like Agloco well get off the ground judging by what's being said on this blog post about Agloco.com!
So what's the conclusion of this review? Is Agloco.com legitimate? At this point I wouldn't recommend them. There are far better ways to be earning money at home right now! And they're not based on what if's and they're not in beta! lol
Look I'm not a work at home cynic, I really hope that Agloco can make this opportunity work. I have no problems eating my words. We all make mistakes it's the joy of being human. So let's hope in the near future I'll be wrong. But right now just pass on this beta opportunity. Yes you do take a risk of joining the party late. I know I did with AllAdvantage.com but I was able to catch up really fast when it was proven to me that it did make money. So no worries. Go and focus on making money now rather than the potential of making money later!

I am so glad I found this! I am paralyzed from the chest down so the little money I do have I need. Thank you for saving me from that mistake!!!!
You’re very welcome Robert!
You’re welcome. There is a reason you never heard of it. It never took off. lol
But it’s good you always do your research!
Thanks for the update Eddy, I myself never heard of Agloco. I am interested in free to join and proven paid surveys, ptc,ptr,bux, and gpt sites or sweeps… I do my research b4 joining or investing..
Thanks for the information
You’re welcome Joan.
April 26,2011 Good Evening Eddy! I am responding to the email that I received from you today I did a little checking on the
Agloco.com website and this is what I discovered ,they are “dead”! This is according to an email that Mr Oluniyi D.Ajao
received on 12/11/2007 from the Agloco.com website Their SSL certificate expired on 11/19/2007 and their revenue is
currently not sufficient to pay their members Thank you again for the heads-up! Joan Soffer
hey, eddy thanks for all feedback .i’ll try.
I am in agreement with you, even though i have joined this site, but i had some companies claiming similar things but it did not materialize, but like you said there’s no harm in trying.
Although nowadays I’m less inclined to try these opportunities until I hear reports of people actually being paid. Because some sites will use your information to sell to others and I don’t want to deal with that. So I’m a lot more careful now.
Are you sure they’re not the same company under a different name?
Well i have been following you for some time now and have joined up to some of the sites you recommended, I have made some money as you said it takes time for the freelance sites but some of the other sites like hits4pay i have been getting regular emails from.
I actually had a question i heard about EZlaptop site where you read emails and earn credits for a laptop just wondering if you have any input on this site?
Glad to hear you’re taking action and making some money. That’s always good to hear. This laptop sites sounds very similar to get paid offer sites which we’ve covered here:
http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2008/05/07/getpaidtotryoffers/ The same tips we list there apply to this site. That being said, you should just follow the steps in my scam video:
http://www.workathomenoscams.com/scams to ensure this laptop site isn’t a scam.
By the way it’s Eddy not eddie. 😉
Thanks for the info on this company! I appreciate you taking the time to keep us updated on things like this.
You’re welcome Clara.
Oops … sorry guys! I posted my response before reading the blog post Eddy refers to. A silly mistake I usually don’t do anymore. It’d be one thing if they said right from the beginning that you won’t get paid immediately but as the company grows. They actually do say something like that but it’s too vague for my comfort. Now they’re saying you won’t get paid until the company can afford to pay you. Well, if the company is supposed to “owned” by its members, the members are the ones to get paid. And, I wondered why it was taking so long to get going …
I said in my post to go join if it’s free and with no risk and see what happens. I think I’ll hold off for a while. I was comparing it to any of the other nontraditional ways to earn a little cash, as in my case I’ve earned next to nothing after 2 years of trying.
Yeah I knew it wasn’t active. I hadn’t checked the status of the site for a while until I read your post.
How ya doin’? 🙂
Yep I’ve heard of Agloco. I somehow came across it a few months ago. I never signed up because there wasn’t a way TO sign up. I remember reading blogs about how cool it was, but could never find a link to sign up. LOL!
I wasn’t a member of AllAdvantage, but I did belong to some site that was like it. The year was…1999. I remember I got a check for $20 then I think the site went down. Maybe it was AllAdvantage? LOL I don’t remember!
Anyhoo, I’ll be more than happy to join Agloco if it ever takes off & once I see some proof it’s worth it;)
Thanks again Eddy!
Don’t bother. This site is a wrap! It never took off.
Talk about a blast from the past! I completely forgot about AllAdvantage! I remember now, being so excited about that tool bar thing too! LOL Do you remember the name of the one with the little sombrero? If you weren’t surfing, it would go to sleep. I want to say treasure something. I have been online forever too, since the late 80’s. My first internet provider was Salamander Junction. We went to AOL and then got mad at them because they blocked “breast cancer” because of the breast. Dropped AOL like a hot potato… Okay, I am rambling, I will quit now. LOL
I’m so happy someone else remembered it too. I was starting to feel like the old man in the club. lol I remember that excitment too! It was such a great and easy way to make money. The other company you’re referring to is cashfiesta I believe. You’ve definitely been surfing longer than me. The oldest internet provider I remember was Compuserve.
Remember them? Thanks for chiming in. You brought me back to the good old days when the internet was simple. I wish i knew then what I know now. I would’ve been a billionaire. lol
Hello Eddy, no I have not seen their ads not have I heard about them. I will take a look and let you know what I think.
That was hilarious Eunice.
Till Now I had never heard of AllAdvantage.com or this site, I definitely will not take advantage of this opportunity ( oops no pun intended )
i am intrested how ot join this group
Thanks for your feedback.
It doesn’t seem like this company is going anywhere.
It’s a shame. That would’ve been easy money!
I’m with you on this website. I havent really
checked it out as of yet.
I also did Alladvantage when it was going on and
yes I did make a few bucks here and there,
until it played out.
I don’t think I would sign up with this opp either.
