You're thinking something. Tell us what it is.

Do nothing. Get paid for surfing the web.

It sounds like something you'd find in the classifieds section of your local freebie paper.

The principle behind Alladvantage is one that is becoming all too familiar to web surfers. And unfortunately it's one that we're likely to see more often in the future as similar viral marketing techniques are adopted by struggling dot coms desperate for cash.

If you want to know just how bad this problem is becoming, cruise usenet for awhile and take a look at how much spam the virals are generating. It's pretty frightening.


Users register with the site. (That's what sites like this are after. Registered users. If you want to know why, take a real close look at their privacy policies.)

Then surf happily around the web.

And get paid.

The pay ain't great - but still, .50 cents an hour ain't bad for hanging around chat rooms and downloading screensavers. Alladvantage also pays a staggering ten cents an hour for every person you refer to the site.

Gosh, why that could add up quickly. If you took all of your friends and all of your friends' friends and we assume your friends' friends have friends,'d be rich.

All for the cost of a local phone call.

Alladvantage is planning to add online shopping discounts at major E-Commerce sites and other services in the near future.

BTW - Do you suppose the IRS will count your earnings as taxable income?
