Well I just recently found out about this opportunity. They start out by saying, " Imagine telling your friends that your computer earns money while you are sleeping! It could happen if you are selected to be an Active Gomez PEER in the Gomez PEER Community."
Gomez will be selecting a diverse group of PEERs to be paid for their computers' processing time. Right now, Gomez is looking for users from all over the world with different Internet connection types, including dial-up and broadband users. They say that they will review your application within (14) fourteen business days and email you your account status. After that your account will be set to either active, pending, or inactive. The more time time your computer is available to be connected to the Internet, the better chance you have of getting your status set to active. They review accounts every (7) seven to (10) ten days so the more time your computer is online the better chance you have of your account being set to active.
So basically, you sign up with them for free, you install their software,
which is spy ware and virus free, you run the software. The more online time options and available times you select on the sign up page, the more processing time you will get,
(you can accumulate more processing time if you have a high speed connection) ,
Your account cannot be activated unless you install the software and run it. You'll need to have
a PayPal, Moneybookers, or Alipay account to get paid.
After you install the Gomez PEER software, it will recognize that your computer is on and you are connected to the Internet. The Gomez PEER application runs in the background of your computer, processing work that is assigned to it by their servers -- all without you having to tell it what to do.
Here are a couple of the FAQ's from their site:
What is the "PEER"?
The Gomez PEER(sm) is a secure, Java-based application that runs in the background of your PC. You may even forget it's there, because it will not disrupt the way you use your computer. Using advanced, peer-to-peer distributed computing technology, the Gomez PEER combines the spare capacity of PCs around the world to measure the performance of Web sites. After you install the Gomez PEER, it will periodically communicate with Gomez servers via the Internet, signal that it's available for work, and request a work unit. And you will be credited for your online time and work processed approximately every 15 minutes that the application is running.
"Once I am selected as an Active Gomez PEER, how do I earn cash?"
Active Gomez PEERs can earn cash in two ways:
- Complete the online application form and indicate the referrers valid user name.
- Have the application approved by Gomez;
- Download, install and run the Gomez PEER;
- Be selected as an Active Gomez PEER.
