Agloco Reminds Some Bloggers of AllAdvantage

Posted on December 6, 2006

AglocoA website called Agloco is promising to pay you to search the web. Members get paid for running a "Viewbar" on the bottom of their browser and by referring friends. A GigaOM post compares Agloco to AllAdvantage, a pay for surfing scheme that collapsed during the dot com crash in 2000.

TechCrunch also compares this new pay-to-surf site to AllAdvantage. You can catch up on the history of AllAdvantage here on Wikipedia. A VentureBeat article notes that a couple of the people working for Agloco also worked for AllAdvantage. Shawn Collins says don't call it a comeback and says it is a "new iteration of AllAdvantage."

It is unclear whether or not Agloco will work but it is annoying they spell their name in all caps on their website -- that always looks like spammy shouting to us.

Update: The Agloco dotcom site is no more.
