AGLOCO Viewbar Released

by Ed Lau on June 6, 2007

I was beginning to think this was going to be like Guns ‘N Roses’ Chinese Democracy or Duke Nuken Forever. Those of us who signed up with AGLOCO on day one were beginning to think we’d never see the release of the viewbar we were promised months ago. I last wrote about AGLOCO in April when we were to expect the viewbar “any day now”. Apparently they were having some problems with the ad server. Here’s a bit of an explanation they posted:

We have made a workaround regarding the ad server problem and we will finally be launching the Viewbar. Some, but not all, of our ad networks will be connected. These networks have enough ads on them, so we are comfortable releasing the software as we continue to work on the outstanding issues that remain with the other networks. All of the preliminary Viewbar functions are there, but with the ad problems we will not be initially launching with the personalized ad targeting. We will continue to develop this capability after we have launched and when it is available the new version of the software will be incorporated into your viewbar automatically.

The Viewbar is currently available for Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista and will work with IE (Internet Explorer) or Firefox browsers.


The viewbar is about the size of the average taskbar with a Google search box on the right side. You can choose from four colors and whether you want it to dock on the top or bottom of the screen. Unfortunately, I think there are still a few problems on their end as I’ve had it installed for a few hours now and there are still no ads running. Oh well, not like any of us signed up to look at ads…we signed up to make some money!

Sign up with AGLOCO here! The initial outlook save for some server problems looks good and it takes next to no effort, requiring only five hours a month of…well, doing what you do anyways: browsing the internet. After those five hours, feel free to turn off the viewbar. The more people that sign up under you, the more your hours are worth. Click the link to sign up with me if you heard about AGLOCO here. :)
