After posting about my preview of the AGLOCO Viewbar back on May 14th, I haven’t written anything else about AGLOCO. The reason for this was there wasn’t any news to report. The Viewbar was working and all that remained was the integration of the ad servers. Well, I’m happy to finally report that starting on Monday morning, you will be able to download the Viewbar. And wouldn’t you know it. This news comes just as I passed 17,000 AGLOCO sign ups.
Viewbar release this Monday (Tuesday in Asia)
Be sure to check the AGLOCO website on Monday morning (Tuesday if you’re in Asia like I am right now) because you should be able to download the Viewbar.
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.
It’s been a bumpy road but It looks like AGLOCO is finally going live. It will be interesting to see what happens to sign up rates when there’s a fully running Viewbar.
*Update – You can now log into your AGLOCO account and download the Viewbar.
