Update Dez 10th 2014 - Nothing has changed here, I do not have to update anything. However, they are still sketchy, often times do not accept Users for no reason, support is unresponsive and they can cancel your accounts for no reason (as they did with mine). If you are an enthusiast, you can use it, but I would recommend you check out / set up all the other things from this blog first.
Gomez PEER is completely automatic and pays very well, which is why I favour it. I recommend it for anyone, even the most casual computer user.
It is a software that runs silently in the background and helps large websites like video portals whether their programmes are accessible from everywhere in the world.
The tool runs under windows (and does not accept emulated Windows via VM). It does no harm and doesn't annoy you with anything.
relatively high pay
the most silent and unintrusive
does not slow down your computer or internet connection:
I never saw it use more than 1% CPU, 30 MB RAM and 3 kb/s bandwith while actually processing
(hence) no additional electricity cost
Payment comes automatically so you can forget about it even more
stable: at least I've never seen it crash
Accounts require activation to start earning.
After signing up you already start running the software so Gomez can evaluate whether or not they need you.
Some people report that they never got accepted. It took days for me. And once you're accepted, it's awesome. There also is a list of countries they need more people in on their website which is updated periodically.
earnings are limited to $45.00 per month (which you probably won't reach and is still nice)
Minimum Cashout: $5.00
Earning Rate: depends
Payment comes to your PayPal automatically once every month when your earnings are above $5.00, otherwise they are kept for the next month until you surpass $5.00 total. Your earnings are capped at $45.00 per month.
The amount you earn depends highly on your position and online times. I personally make around $10.00 from Germany for using my computer as I always do. Which to be fair is a lot.
Referal System: Yes
You get a one-time reward of $1.00 for every referred person whose account gets activated. That is all.
Click on the APPLY button on the top right corner of the Gomez PEER website. Everything you need to use on their website is right there.
Finish the application form and process. After logging in, you can download the PEER Software (button above).
Installation is pretty straightforward. You don't have to worry about having to uncheck any bloatware, since there is none.
When running the software for the first time, the preferences window shows up.
Enter your Gomez Nickname and make sure the performance slider is set to max. You should also enable launch during system startup so that you can forget about Gomez even more.
The actual Gomez Window looks like this and shows this month's earnings and whether the software is processing right now or merely waiting for work.
Now you simply close the window to make it minimize to the tray, never to bother you again. The main window will open during system startup, so you will have to hit the X manually once to close it.
From now on, your account is in "Pending" status. Just let the software run and hope to get activated and start earning ASAP. When that happens, you will also receive an e-mail. You can then forget about it's existence and be surprised by some automatic extra robot pennies every month!
