Hey guys, I have seen quite a lot of talk about the internet money making programme "Gomez". It is where you install this "Peer" software which runs as a background process on your computer, so when your computer is turned on you are making some cash. I found this concept interesting and have so signed up for an account. I have had my Gomez Peer software running for over two weeks now and it is sat there on "Pending" account status still. Have any of you guys had experience with this programme? Thanks in advance, I look forward to hearing from you. Alec

I do not understand why people are afraid to put their real infromation at facebook for example, but they are not afraid to download a program, run it, and let it monitor all their actions. Because gomez can easily do that. It's like saying that you are willing to get paid by someone that wants to put a camera on your head and record whatever you do for ever.

They probably could actually see you through your webcam, I have heard stories about the police doing that before.

it was not the police it was an university who was giving all the students free laptops and use the incorporated webcams to "survey" the students :)

Well, to be honest that's the least of the things they can do. Imagine if they know your credit card number/ paypal password etc etc

I have seen lots of discussion about this on a finnish internet earning forum I used to be a member of, they said that this is a nice program and they had some payment proofs... I pretty much keep my computer open 24/7 so it would actually be a pretty nice program for me but I haven't joined since my computer sucks so badly that even a really light program like Gomez would slow it down pretty much...

Thanks for replying with your thoughts on Gomez. Maybe when you get some computer upgrades you can give it a shot! Having your computer on 24/7 is always handy. I now have a server in my room for holding my files etc, it is a very low power consumption computer compared to my main PC so I am giving it a few tasks now to do while it's on. Making me a few dollars here and there. :-)

Gomez is very old. I m sure you could have found alot of discussions about it here if you used the search thing :) Anyway, it s old, serious and paying. If your connection/pc is not so good you might experience some slow problems:P About getting accepted alot of people discussed till now, oyu can make money while in pending but only for referring other people (1 $ for each active referral), but you won t get the money for the peer thing unless you get accepted. This can happen after a few days or after months or who knows even more. As a tip: i understand they favour dial up users over all. So gl.

Yep I have found many old discussions on the matter but felt I should start a new one rather than try to bump an ancient one. However I am one of the majority who has ADSL broadband and thus I stand less of a chance to get in. Still pending. Thanks for your reply though, much appreciated!

I never joined since I like all my cpu for my own performance, some people are never excepted and remain pending, others are excepted and make a small amount. If I was you I would find another site without software to download, many people will join and then uninstall such software. Find out how to get referrals, pick a couple of trusted sites that have been paying for a few years and start promoting. there are some good sites on my blog that are paying for 2 plus years. take care and happy posting.

Yes I am in the same boat as those who don't get accepted, it has been quite some time now and I am still pending. I think I will try other things, at the moment I am trying out locationary.com, might post a new discussion about it. :-)

Ah that sucks. I wish they made it less of a performance hog. The idea behind these programs is that they use the free processing power, not take it from what is already being used...

I had Gomex Peer on my computer at one time, but after a month or so not getting my account activated, I gave up on it and uninstalled it. I think it is a big wasted of time, and I am not sure I would have ever got activated, and I wasn't going to take the chance. To me, it is a big waste of time, and not worth it, but you can do it if you want to, but I don't want software on my computer monitoring it to get information. It causes problems so I am not willing to even start. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.

Yes it has been quite some time now and I am still not activated, so I have stopped using it until I get activated. Quite a shame really.

Im trying this program out. just to see how well it works. if nothing comes up soon then Im giving up, I think its kinda ridicilous that they expect you to leave your computer running even if your pending not getting paid for it, then have you work for a month... yeah run up your electric bill for 3 months then we'll pay you 12 cents a minute for one month... lol

As said above, it is a very old program. I've been a member for over 10 years and that is very old in Internet speak! The theory is that they run snippets of code on your PC that clients pay them to have the code checked out on different PC's with different speed connections in different countries. Now to do that, Gomez only need a few tens of people who fit each specification. If you are not one of that group then you are 'Pending'. Even when you are chosen to be in a group there may not be any work for you so you are also listed as 'Pending'. If you are in the US or UK it is almost impossible to get work unless you are on dial-up. If you live in Fiji then it would be easier. See what I mean? When it is working you will see on your accounts page the time ticking along - stop for a bit - then tick along again. It takes a long time to get paid but hey, you can just ignore it and let it tick away and get a payout every once in a while. And they do pay.

I have tried to use it. The idea of the program is good but the program designers have problems. They will not tell you what it takes to become active and as long as your pending you do not make any of the money you earn. Some say it works but others say it doesnt. I have found that for some people it took them half a year to be active for a month. I thought it was pretty ridiculous when I didnt become active after leaving my computer on after 2 weeks straight running that program. It had gone from like 200,000 to 80,000 in rank and I was not even active. If the site would just tell you what it takes to be active it would be better but they dont. It would be nice though to earn some money from it but its not worth the wait if 2 full weeks is not enough to become active.
