Bindspace: A New Make Money Site: Read This Article Before Joining

Updated on July 16, 2014

Beware Of Bubblews Knockoff Sites: Honestly, There Is Only One Bubblews

Ok guys, be wary of any knockoff Bubblews sites, or sites that claim they do what Bubblews does! Because I don't mean to burst your bubble, but Bubblews is one of a kind, and the more popular it gets, the more knockoffs will probably appear, and one knockoff I want to discuss is Bindspace, a site that claims you will get paid for every like, dislike and comment.

Bindspace Doesn't Let You Delete Your Content

Bindspace keeps your conent, and this means you cannot delete it! Bubblews does not do this, but Bindspace does! If you want to delete a post over at Bubblews, you can easily do so. Good luck doing that at Bindspace, at least for now.

Does Bindspace Even Have The Money To Pay Members

Seriously, Bindspace says it will pay members when they reach $30. Ok sounds good, but what happens when 500 members reach pay out? That means they need to pay $15,000 out, and what if their ads didn't bring that much money in? Did they raise funds for this? I doubt it because the site looks nothing like Bubblews.

Guys, as of now Bindpsace appears to be using Google Ads, and if the site is going to pay 0.01 cents, then that means for every 1,000 like/dislike etc.. then you will make $10. To me this sounds dodgy unless they have start-up money to pay members, because I highly doubt Google is paying $10 for every 1,000 impressions! I actually think this is unheard of. I have suspicions that Bubblews had money before it launched, that way they could afford to pay their members, but that is only a suspicion.

By the way, according to the site's terms and conditions, payouts will start next June. I think it is obvious why, as Bindspace needs to get the revenue from their ads first before they pay.

Bindpsace Is Not On their Own Servers But Bubblews Is

Another reason why I believe Bindpsace is probably a one-trick pony that won't pay up is because they are not even on their own servers! There are other sites that are hosted on the same server, this is very amateurish and I believe that the site was setup by someone who thought making a site like Bubblews was easy!

Bindspace's Terms Are poorly Written

The terms and conditions are very poorly written, and does not offer me reassurance that the site actually knows what they are doing, and that they are just banking on thinking they will make all their money from ad revenue and that will be enough to pay its members. Some parts of the terms and FAQs seem to mimic Bubblews's terms and FAQs.

Did you know that rule 7 under content sharing says that if material is not yours, then make sure you reference the source. This is so vague! It should say plagiarizing and copying articles are not allowed, but so far nowhere on the site says that!

Should You Join Bindspace

I am going to say it is probably not worth your time to join Bindspace, as it is not Bubblews. Don't let the wording of the site fool you. If you join and you get paid, then good for you and I will eat my words that I have written in this article, but I am no confident that Bindspace is going to be around for long, and I think the site is going to go down sometime at the end of June or July. I also expect the site to start making excuses as to why they are not paying members, such as a glitch because they are a new site. Good luck if you do join Bindspace.

July Update: Bindspace Appears To Be No More

We are not surprise at this, but it looks like Binspace is no more. They haven't even announced anything on their Facebook page. It appears that the site just packed up and left and probably didn't even pay anybody who wrote content for them.

We don't think Bindspace was a scam, but we do think Bindpsace thought it was going to make plenty of money right off the bat and then it would be able to pay all of their members for their 'likes', 'comments' and 'views' and it would become as popular as Bubblews. We're guessing that they didn't, therefore they closed shop.

Everyone is looking for the next Bubblews or a site that is like Bubblews, but there is not any site close to it, and Bindspace is certainly not close being Bubblews. I can see Bindspace waiting until June, and once they realize they have not made enough money in ad revenue to pay their members, then good luck explaining it to members who are expecting to be paid. Join Bindspace at your own risk. The only thing you will have wasted there if you don't get paid is time, so the choice is up to you.

      I looked at them and I did join, I will ride it out to my first redeem and see how that goes. I just found about about them today and haven't posted anything but I'll see before I bash them.

      @lowdowno I agree. The terms and conditions and so forth are not clear enough to me too. As of now they state they have enough funds to pay "several payouts" so if they don't find investors, then I highly doubt they are going to be able to afford to pay all of their members (as of now there are around 400).

      I looked at Bindspace and I thought the writing is too small, and it didn't explain things well enough for me to join. I agree with you, that if they don't change the way they are doing this, they won't do very good.

      I personally don't like Bubblews, I like Teckler much better, even Redgage, but these don't pay as much. At least you will get paid though when Bubblews is ify in that regard.

      Your welcome Enjoylife. As of now Bindspace just posted a post saying that they have enough funds to pay "several tens" worth of payments, and that they are meeting with investors to try to get money for their project. I don't think they will have enough money to pay their members come June. Maybe they'll do good and flourish, but I doubt it.

      The difference between Bubblews and sites like Hubpages is that Bubblews is more like a blogging/social media platform, but you've been some good points about how some members behave over there.

      I tried Bubblews, but it was not for me. Seems that people write a paragraph or two about silly things, just to get more posts up, then they all go around liking each other's posts to get money. Not my thing, although I realise it seems to work for some. My first bubblews account mysteriously disappeared after I had put a bunch of work in. I then set another up to give it a go, but after working at it for a while, just walked away for the reasons above.

      I prefer writing detailed and meaningful content so prefer Hubpages, but I realise it's a matter of preference.

      As for your comments on Bindspace, it sounds doggy from what you say, although I've not looked into it enough beyond your hub to form a full opinion.

      Thanks for the hub though, it's useful to hear your thoughts. At least if I hear about Bindspace as a potential income source, I am now unlikely to go and take a look (for me, mainly because it operates a similar concept to Bubblews)

      Marc3 I do have a very good experience with Bubblews. I have been a member there for awhile, but people who join Bindspace should do so at their own risk because right now there are just a few red flags, and they are very new. I could be wrong and they could flourish, but I am doubting it.

      I have never heard of Bindspace until now, appreciate the heads up.

      It does sound like you have had good experience with Bubblews however there are many people who have not and because of it Bubblews doesn't have that great of a reputation either. Many people don't get paid or at least receive any responses to their concerns.

      Best of luck.
