Can the giants of social media be challenged to mend their ways?


Will social media giants ever pay you cash for your content which makes them big money? Asks an obscure Brexit hit British firm which thinks it is time the big corporations cared for the little guys.


The logic behind a new Social Network called Paybookclub Cash for Content, which runs on mobile phones as a simple App, goes like this : Usually on social media, the average person will share their photo or their witty status. Although the post is that users’ property, companies across the social network will repost or repurpose the content and the person who posted it will get nothing.

Paybookclub aims to challenge this kind of behaviour by rewarding the users who share their content and who receive likes or shares from their followers. It is the aim of Paybookclub to become the global marketplace for content where millions will find gainful employment for a lifetime.”

In a bid to change the status quo, Paybookclub Cash for Content is giving a million customers the chance to own shares in the company during this Christmas and festive season. The shares that are being offered to customers include a free mobile membership for the social network, and will carry other rewards such as a loyalty bonus.

The social site operates by rewarding its users for posting their content on its platform, allowing them to earn cash for every like and share they receive on their posts, as well as money for time spent on the network.

The Paybookclub Cash for Content App, which can be downloaded free from Google Play, the App store and from the networks’ own website, is a feature rich social network where you can have all the fun you normally have with your friends and family on social networks, with an extra layer of security as all accounts are required to be verified.

The social network was developed by Capexsales Ltd, a marketing firm based in the West Midlands, to offer people an alternative to Facebook and other social networking sites. The primary difference with Paybookclub is the monetary incentives and increased levels of safety it offers. Users not only feel completely safe using the platform, but they’re also able make money for their time spent browsing social media on a daily basis.

Paybookclub has now launched the Sign Up Million Members campaign, giving details of the company shares scheme, as well as further information on the offer of a free membership and loyalty scheme in the terms of service on the company’s website – www.paybook.club

Apart from setting an innovative trend in social networking, Paybookclub offers tomorrow’s technology today, ensuring the highest security to members with fingerprint/iris scan and encryption. Paybookclub app is just a front end for a fast and highly scalable web application based on Mongo DB™, AWS™, sophisticated analytics and PUSH communication. One of the new features to be introduced is screening of full length movies which will address the piracy problem in the industry.

The new book on the web which pays cash for your likes, comments and status posts

If you are one of the billion people lured in to insanely spending your life on social media, incessantly  creating and donating  valuable content for the corporations to make all the money, you can relax!

Here is paybookclub, a little App for your mobile, which will pay hard cash for your status posts as well as the likes and comments you give away to unknown people!

It is unlikely that when many of the big “books” on the internet were conceived, anyone knew what they were supposed to do and who exactly they were supposed to serve. Only one thing was evident. They were all ventures to make money for their owners. Hardly any of the websites, several of which have grown to mammoth corporations, bothered to monetarily reward its subscribers for their contribution or the time they spend and efforts to create content.

paybookclub appears to be different. It looks to be serious about recognising the time and effort its
members contribute while socialising through the App and rewarding them handsomely by enhancing the value to their creative contribution and monetising it to benefit the members.

What is more, paybookclub which is free to join and remain as a member, will let you have the fun of building your friends network of real and genuine people whose identity is diligently verified so that you can be sure about the existence, gender and age of the person you are befriending on paybookclub.

In  fact, though paybookclub presents itself as a nifty App for your mobile and tablet which carries a SIM card, it is in fact a full blown social media platform which creates value for the content posted by the members.

To start with, once you are registered with paybookclub through a rather lengthy process, you can set up your public profile and start building your network by inviting your friends. If you have none, paybookclub will build it for you through a sophisticated profile matching process.

You can post your status as private which will be shown only to your friends and groups you select or as public in which case it will shown and offered  to the wider community of paybookclub.

Apart from your photos and video, paybookclub allows you to post and array of content types from your Artwork to your Tutorials, all of which will be offered for purchase by other members or external customers through different monetisation channels, when they are posted or upgraded as public posts.

To encourage a natural process of curation and value discovery of the posted content, the members  re reward for every like, comment they make on status posts they chose. The members are rewarded for their content which gets approved by the curation process by a patent value enhancing process.

paybookclub will offer you all they fun you can get on the web like chat, tweet and direct call to your friends and interact with them without having to log on to different sites, getting paid all the while and even a loyalty bonus depending on how long you use the services.


Like all for good things in life, there  is a hitch. You need to reveal your real identity and produce an ID like your passport or driving licence during the paybookclub registration process, information any bank will ask if money is to be credited to your account. 

Why a page views counter may be better than social share buttons?




Even though the algorithms of Google with names like Penguin and Panda had evolved to weed out fake content from the cyberspace, Google gives appropriate weight to recommendation to social media.

These are typically obtained through the share buttons provided by Facebook, Twitter and many others which need to be included in your content.

However, a growing number of experts feel that the share buttons have outlived their utility and appeal to draw visitors to click them. Moreover their unseemly presence all over the page, resulting from indiscreet use aimed at getting as many clicks as possible, is also putting off many people.

A growing number of web users do not use them at all for recommending a web page. Many experts believe that eventually everything will come back to old style text links and have even started to provide those instead of  the social media buttons.

All these go with the vein and philosophy of Google that only genuine, fresh and unique content needs to be taken in to account and presented in searches. Experts argue that such content will impress readers enough for them to recommend them to others without the buttons.

 No one is going to add up all those numbers in individual share button boxes to decide how many people have visited the page. A page count should be readily and easily available to the visitor to be effective in persuading him or her to read on and perhaps recommend to others.

That is where the post counts for such content becomes a useful and convincing piece of information to the reader. This is especially true for unique and compelling content which Google consider as the ones to be promoted.

The problem is that such page view counters are not readily provided by blogging platforms like Google’s BlogSpot or Wordpress even though Google has a mechanism to give this information in the admin section. However, it is not clear whether you need to install the Google Analytics, which slows page loading, to see this. Google also may have a commercial reason to withhold this information from the site visitors.

For Wordpress at least, thankfully there are some plug-ins, which can be easily installed. For BlogSpot however, there is hardly any help available from the wider community though a couple of scripts are available on the net which doesn’t seem to work.

One solution, provided by Mybloggertricks.com using a third party database called FIREBASE seems to be a good possibility though it is not working with many modern templates of BlogSpot.

However we have managed to get it working after some serious digging and a good dose of help from the folks at FIREBASE.

However the MBT script was generating data sets for each value for a given string identifier like “name” but the script will output a visitor number only when the value was a pure string like “more”. Please see here for a full description.

The problem with blogging platforms is that each blog post is dynamically generated and it is nearly impossible to have a unique identifier other than its title, which is also dynamically included in the html in a modern blogging platform. ( Google actually introduces a ID number also in the blogger blogs. )

However the MBT script didn’t work with the post itle either, one plausible explanation being it was not available to the script until after the page fully loaded by which time it was too late.

Fortunately, some expert advice to deal with this issue was available at Buggy Bread and following their advice seems to solve the problem.

For anyone who would like and feel competent enough to install the MBT script for Google’s BloSpot Blog,  here are the steps which worked for this blog to get the script working as you can see from the working counter on the top left.

(Please note the steps below are given without any guaranty, warranty or indemnity for consequential losses or damage and must be followed at your own risk and peril.)

- Install the MBT script as instructed by Mybloggertips. Com here.
- Check if it is working for your blog.
- If not, first back up your Blog template.
- Open your Blog template in the BlogSpot HTML editor.

-    Locate the Java Script given by MBT and placed just before the </body> tag.
-    Rename  “ name” to “pname” in three places in the script. 
-    Use Ctrl + f and find the code <b:includable id='post' var='post'>
-    Place the following code below it. 
-    <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
-    <a expr:pname='data:post.title'/>
-          </b:if>


- Click the preview template button and make sure the page is loading without errors.
- Save your template by clicking the save template button
- Hopefully your counter must show up with a number next time you open that page which will increment every time a visitor visits the page.
- You can check the pages that have been visited by logging in to your FIREBASE database.
- Don't forget to back up your template again.

Page view counts will be a useful information not only for the visitors but for blog authors also to verify the response to the post. For example, to compare the number of vies to the number of comments on a page or to gain an insight to what type of topics are preferred by the visitors etc.

With really good content, page view counter will ultimately become a significant measuring tool for bloggers.
