Why let Google make all the money..which you help generate..

Hi Friends,

Let me start by apologising for the unsolicited mail. I have been
extremely happy with the knowledge provided by this group and would
like to pay back in a small way.


None of us need introduction to Google - the company which has
achieved a market cap of 150 billion USD in 9 years and makes over 10
billion (projected) in revenues from you. You would be aware that 90%
of Google's revenues come from YOU - or rather from your attention
which is captured and monetised by Google through their immensely
successful AdSense/AdWords programme.

But how much of this money is given to YOU - the end user. I know that
none of us are compensated for watching TV or reading the paper - who
also make their money by monetising your attention, but the Internet
is a different medium - which changes the rules of conventional media.

AGLOCO ( http://www.agloco.com/r/BBBV2104 ), is a company which is
trying to change all this. It knows the value of your attention - and
it is prepared to compensate you for it. How AGLOCO plans to do this
by using a toolbar (similar to the toolbars used by Google, Yahoo!,
Alexa etc.) which track your browsing behaviour. The AGLOCO toolbar is
an unobtrusive toolbar which sits at the bottom of your browser and
delivers targeted ads and deals to you - mind you that this toolbar is
completely adware/malware free. The toolbar is pending introduction
but you can see some preliminary information about it here - http://

AGLOCO is an incarnation of a firm called AllAdvantage which used to
pay people to surf using their toolbar. But this is not a viable
business model - Now as AGLOCO what they plan to do is to give shares
of the company to users - and users will share in the profit made by
the company. Seems good - YES IT IS, good, doable and viable.

Now since the company's value increases as more people use ALGOCO -
you are encouraged to join and get your friends to join to (after all
it is FREE). This is the same concept of Viral Marketing that has been
used by companies like HotMail, YouTube etc. for their phenomenal
growth. You will be compensated by stock in the company for more
friends that you bring in.

Please note this is not a pyramid scam - you do not pay a single penny
to join, its completely free. And as you are not paid cash, but stock
in the company, the business model seems sustainable (at least to me).

So in case you think of joining - please click here and join


In case you do, please let me know (if possible) and promote it among
your friends also - everyone wins here.

In case of any questions please feel free to mail me and ask, I would
be glad to answer any questions you might have.

Sorry again for the unsolicitated mail.
