Yes, we allow this.I've had CashGopher installed for X days, and am not seeing any earnings still. Is there something wrong?As we've mentioned before, some areas of the world are not going to be able to make as much money as users in the U.S., the U.K., and Australia.I earned so much this day, but little to none on this other day. Why?Our daily earnings from advertisers can vary, and since CashGopher shares its advertising revenue with you, the user, you should expect fluctuations to occur from day to day.How can I make more money?In general, the best way to make more money is to generate referrals. We have a lot of tools available for you to share this with your friends. Beyond that, the more you use your computer and the longer you leave it on, the more you'll make.I sent in a request for help, but I haven't heard anything back.

What CashGopher is, and what CashGopher isn't
Sep 14 2010 13:08
First of all, thanks to all of the users who have tried out CashGopher over the last week and made it a (for the most part) successful launch!There have been thousands of users who have already downloaded and installed CashGopher who are now successfully letting their computer make money for them.However, there is also a large group of potential users who appear interested in CashGopher, but are concerned about what might be installed on their computer. Our users have done a great job promoting CashGopher on blogs, Facebook, myLot, and many other websites. While much of the information shared on these websites is based upon fact, some of it has been incorrect as well. Understandably, this has caused confusion and made it more difficult for potential users to make the decision to give CashGopher a try.We have tried to address much of this in our FAQ on this website, but there?s obviously still work to be done.Click here to join! (just skip ad)Q: Is it true that CashGopher installs viruses and/or unwanted spyware on my computer?Absolutely false!Now, obviously it does install software. It also installs browser plugins. The sole purpose of both the software and the browser plugins is to make you money. Period. Currently, the best way to make you money is through advertising. The more money we can generate through advertising, the more money we can pay back to you. Once we gain a critical mass of CashGopher installations, companies will also be able to design more complex projects that harness the huge computing power (think ?chores? from the FAQ) of the CashGopher network. This will generate additional revenues that get paid to CashGopher users.Advertisers are willing to pay more money for targeted advertising than they are un-targeted advertising. The best way to ?target? what you may be interested in is by identifying what you are browsing at any given time. Google, Facebook, and most other major companies target their advertising the exact same way.If it makes you uncomfortable that software or a website could use your browsing habits to serve you advertising, then we suggest you not install (or uninstall) CashGopher. But let us also then suggest that you not use Google, delete your Facebook account, and basically not visit any web page that serves third-party advertising, because they are all doing this same thing.Keep in mind however, that (as outlined in our privacy policy) we don?t store any of this information.Now, if you?re OK to the idea of being served targeted advertising while online, then keep using the internet as you do now. But if you?d like to make money from those targeted advertisements, then you should give CashGopher a try.Click here to join! (just skip ad)Q: Is it true that CashGopher replaces the ads of other websites with CashGopher ads?We briefly experimented with this technology, but have since disabled it. If you?re still seeing ad replacements, then clear your browser?s cache and restart your browser.We feel that users should have the right to control what?s on their computer, and that includes advertisements. Given the fact that everybody who installs CashGopher is interested in making money, we thought they would rather see ads that make them money than ads that make somebody else money.The technology to disable a website?s advertisements has been around forever. There are many popular ?ad blockers? from companies like Norton that do this. Our technology took this one step further and replaced the disabled ads with ads that make money for CashGopher users.Based upon feedback from CashGopher users, we found that the vast majority of people would rather be served ads that make them more money. However, a small, but important group of users (blog owners and webmasters) expressed their concern because of potential lost revenues on their end.While the potential negative impact on those webmasters is miniscule compared to the impact of the popular ad blockers from Norton and others, we definitely don?t want to alienate our users who own web sites or run blogs. These users are extremely important to us, and as a result this technology has been disabled.Click here to join! (just skip ad)Q: Does this mean less money for CashGopher users?Probably in the short-term, but not in the long-term.As we gain popularity and as our user base grows, that will allow more advertisers to come on board. The more advertisers we have on board, the more money our users will make.Q: Is it true that users from the United States, Australia and the UK make more money than users from other countries like India and China?Yes, this is true. Payout rates are all driven by advertising revenues in any given country. As detailed in our FAQ, advertisers are currently willing to pay significantly more for targeted advertising to users in certain countries like the United States.We are constantly looking for new partners to help our users from countries other than the US, UK and Australia make more money.Keep in mind that CashGopher is brand new and will evolve over time. As we gain more users, it will increase our chances of obtaining higher payout rates for our users.Click here to join! (just skip ad)Q: Is it true that CashGopher slows my computer down?It shouldn?t.Most of the initial bugs have been worked out by now.If you?re experiencing any issues, we recommend you contact us here: Are any users going to make the $10 minimum payout this first month?Definitely. There will be many members who get paid in October for September earnings. We will have all payments completed by October 15.Our most successful users are those who have promoted CashGopher heavily and have generated multiple referrals.Q: Anything else?That?s it for now.Click here to join! (just skip ad)

Cash Gopher the new way of earning online! by myLot
Sep 14 2010 13:05
What is CashGopher and how does it work?CashGopher is a website that empowers users to "let your computer work for you" and earn money by installing our downloadable software.CashGopher is extremely simple to use. You download and install the software, use your computer as you normally would, and make money while doing nothing.This probably sounds too good to be true, right? Well, here's the catch.While your computer is otherwise idle, CashGopher will at times perform various online "chores" and send the results of those chores back to the "Mother Gopher", if you will. Think of the Mother Gopher as a huge computer that stores the results of all the chores performed by all of the CashGophers running around the world.Companies are willing to pay us for the right to harness the vast computing power that CashGopher provides, and we, in turn, pay a portion of that money to each of you.Are you starting to see how this could work???In addition, advertisers are willing to pay us for the right to serve targeted advertisements to everybody who's running the CashGopher software. You see advertisements all the time while browsing the internet, right? Websites make billions of dollars a year serving you advertisements, and you get nothing in return. We figured you might want a piece of that pie. So we, in turn, pay a portion of our advertising revenues back to you.All of your earnings are collected in your CashGopher account. In general, the more you leave your computer powered on and hooked up to the internet (the CashGopher needs to talk to the Mother Gopher, after all) and the more you use the internet yourself, the more money you will see accumulate in your CashGopher account. Simply login at your email address and password that you chose upon installation to see your earnings.Once you have accumulated at least $10 in your CashGopher account, you are eligible to receive your account balance paid out via Paypal.It's that simple!Exactly what kind of "chores" will CashGopher be using my computer to perform? Anything illegal?Click here to join! (opens in a new window - skip the ad top right)Of course not!The actual chores being performed will depend on many factors including each user's geographical location, processing power and internet connection speed, time of day, and demand from our clients. One example is called "website uptime monitoring." Many webmasters like to know if their websites are accessible from different parts of the world at any given time. The distributed computing power of CashGopher make projects like this possible.Will the CashGopher chores slow down my computer?Since CashGopher chores are only performed when your computer is otherwise idle but still connected to the internet, you shouldn't notice any difference whatsoever. If you notice any issues, please report them to us in our Help section. It's also easy to uninstall CashGopher via your computer's control panel if you no longer want it installed.How do I know that I will actually be paid?CashGopher was created by the same people who created myLot (, the internet's premier destination for making money while contributing to discussions online. myLot has a flawless reputation with on-time monthly payments each and every month since myLot was created way back in April, 2005. You can expect the same payment reliability with CashGopher.Click here to join! (opens in a new window - skip the ad top right)I also have a myLot account, will you combine my CashGopher earnings with my myLot earnings?No, earnings from CashGopher and myLot are separate. If you've never heard of myLot, we suggest you check it out ( as another great way to earn money online!How much money can I make with CashGopher?You're probably not going to get rich with CashGopher, but you can definitely earn enough to make it worth your while. The amount you make from CashGopher's workload is directly related to how much we can make from advertisers and companies paying for "chores" for the CashGophers to work on. It also depends on your computer, your own usage habits, and where you're located in the world (since most of our advertisers are based in the United States, users located here will usually see higher earnings.)So amounts will vary, but to answer the question, users running CashGopher for a full year could expect to make more than $10 and less than $1,000. It should be somewhere in between.However, for those of you willing to put in a little work, there's a way to make substantially more than this by helping us promote CashGopher by referring other users. See the next question for details.So I have earned money, now how do I get paid?We pay users with minimum accumulated earnings of $10 on a monthly basis on or around the 15th of the month. This payment will be for the preceding calendar month.If your accumulated earnings do not amount to $10 in any given month we carry forward all unpaid earnings from previous months until such time that your accumulated earnings exceed $10. Once you reach $10 you will be eligible for payment.All payments will be in US dollars and made via PayPal. At this time we only offer payments to PayPal countries where you can withdraw to a local bank account or via check. Click here for a list of countries we can pay. Also, the US government limits the countries we can pay to. If big brother says we can?t pay you, then we can?t. Click here for a list of countries where OFAC prohibits us from sending money. If your country is on this list, sorry, we can?t pay you or we go to jail. Entering false country information for the purpose of avoiding the OFAC list is grounds for immediate account termination with a loss of all accumulated earnings.A couple last thoughts on earnings. First, any fees incurred in the payment process (i.e. currency translation fees, bank fees, credit card fees, PayPal fees, etc.) are your responsibility. Second, any payments from us may or may not be taxable to you. If you have questions please consult with a tax specialist in your country.Click here to join! (opens in a new window - skip the ad top right)I heard I can make a LOT more money with CashGopher by referring new users through your affiliate program. How does this work?Installing and running the CashGopher software may not make you rich by itself, but participating and succeeding in our affiliate program very well could. So if you're willing to put in some hard work to turbo-charge your CashGopher earnings, then please keep reading!Simply put, the more people we can get to install the CashGopher software, the more money we will make. So we're willing to pay YOU for each new user who installs CashGopher that you refer to us. Each CashGopher user is given a special link to email to friends and family, post on your blog, post in your Facebook account, etc. Anybody who installs CashGopher after clicking on your special link will be credited as your "referral". You will earn 25% of what each of your referrals make via CashGopher usage for a full year after they install the software. These "referral earnings" will be reported as a separate line item in your CashGopher account.Once you've installed our software and created a CashGopher account, simply login to your account to get your special link.How much money can I make promoting CashGopher through the affiliate program?The sky is the limit on this one. It all depends on how hard you're willing to work. The more users you refer to us, the more money you will make. Some affiliates are making thousands of dollars each month.Better yet, CashGopher is actually fairly easy to promote since there's nothing for users to buy or really do besides install the software.Click here to join! (opens in a new window - skip the ad top right)Is the CashGopher affiliate program a pyramid scheme?Absolutely not. CashGopher is a standard affiliate program with a revenue share model. See for more information on affiliate marketing.Is CashGopher a pay-to-click or pay-to-surf program?Definitely not. Just browse the internet and use your computer as you normally would.Will I make more money by clicking on a bunch of ads?No. Just browse the internet and use your computer as you normally would.What kind of advertisements will I see?CashGopher ads will often appear in the same location of ads you would normally be seeing anyway. Much like popular ad-blocker software allows you to see no ads at all, the CashGopher software will substitute normal ads that pay you nothing with ads that help earn money for CashGopher users. You will also see text link ads that often appear when hovering over certain text links.From time to time you will see advertisements appear in a new browser window as a pop-under. We strive to keep these advertisements as unobtrusive as possible, while still accomplishing our goal of generating targeted advertising revenue that we can share with CashGopher users.Finally, there is a neat price-comparison feature that may appear when you're shopping online that will help you find potentially better deals for the same product at other online retailers.Click here to join! (opens in a new window - skip the ad top right)
