Our patent-pending technology has already verified over 100 million page views. It can tell if somebody really paid attention. It’s privacy-first, most recently recognized by Mozilla’s Fix The Internet OpenLab.
How can you tell if somebody paid attention?
How can we tell? Using advanced behaviour pattern analysis and AI-driven content analysis (we're aware how jargon-y that sounds, but it's the truth), it can tell how focused you are, and how intensely. It's as close as you'll get to camera-based tracking, without the need for the invasiveness. And it has already processed over 100 million page views with our beta partners over the last couple of years. You can learn more in our FAQ as well.
How it works
We provide you with a piece of code.
You paste it in your site’s code.
It activates Readocracy on your site. It has zero impact on your load time, and zero data is tracked or saved when not in use.
What you get as a result
A widget that lets people know they can get credit for your content.
We make sure it matches your site’s style. You can choose several variations of the credits message, including the # of credits or the subject they’re being recognized for.
They can sign up to Readocracy to start getting credit. They’re taken through a quick onboard flow with both of our logos on it.
When they’re done, it takes them right back to your site.
It’s the most privacy-first UX and user policy you’ve probably ever come across.
And now you both start benefitting
Now all the time they spend reading / watching / listening / making thoughtful contributions can be recognized and rewarded, on your site and others.
This isn’t your stereotypical gimmicky gamification. There are real world prizes and exclusive access in play - and it’s entirely oriented around quality instead of quantity.
They get an impressive portfolio page which shows their credibility and commitment to any subject. (They choose what’s public.) It embeds beautifully on Linkedin and elsewhere.

page for Readers
Now your content is being assigned tangible value and being tied to people’s reputations, both online and in their careers, on subjects they care about.
Using the dashboard we provide you, you can also assign prizes and perks for top readers each month, quarter, or year.
You can automatically hide your comments section and all participation features until somebody has actually read or watched the content first.
No more knee-jerk comments or trolls.
In your dashboard you get a number of insights you can’t find anywhere else, helping you to understand your audience like never before, yet in a way that respects their privacy.
All of the above is free for small publishers and non-profits, and very reasonably priced for all others.
If a reader ends up paying for Readocracy’s premium features, we share some of the revenue with you, too. Win-win-win.
For an extra cost you can also activate:
In-Site Reading Groups / Discussions

Why we’re doing all this
We are obsessed with rethinking the attention economy. We think its current form is destroying society.

Help us shape a future where quality beats quantity.
The internet is information. By making it only count for advertising, the information became secondary.
This destroyed our information ecosystem.
The internet is the nervous system of modern society.
We are seeing what happens when it’s optimized for quantity of attention , instead of quality of information.
Readocracy flips the script.
We are in a knowledge economy. Readocracy makes your attention online count as subject matter expertise instead.
Instead of checking your attention for advertising value, Readocracy checks it for learning value. It makes your attention count for your credibility on the subjects you’re passionate about.
Instead of an extractive model where others profit off of you, Readocracy is an additive model: you gain the value. Instead of quantity, it’s all about quality.
Imagine an internet optimized for that, instead.
FAQ"How do you make money? Are you just another data-exploiting, privacy-infringing business?" "What are the credits for? / Why credits? / What is a credit?"

"How do you decide how many credits an article is worth?" "What if you're looking at questionable content?" "Is attention knowledge? What about application?" "Does the product distinguish between quality of articles / journalism?
Or does being well-read in anti-vaxxer sites produce as much credit as being well-read on scientific journals?" "What if I'm naturally a fast reader?" "This isn't tracking all my browsing activity is it?" Lots more FAQ right this way
