...why can't I charge you for it?
Because as I said many will use proxies, and you will never know who linked to you.
Or simply will ignore your calls to send the money. What are you going to do then? Disavow? heh... and so what? Who cares?
If a news website writes an article about you are you going to charge them too, no? A blog, yes? where's the limit. Or if someone shares a page on facebook, are you going to charge that someone or facebook? Are you going to charge a page that send you 1 visitor per year the same as the one that sends 1M? From what you say you care about the content that is being used by people, so who's gonna do the counting? This is a broken business model to me. Sorry.
Again if there is something really valuable on the website, then the best thing to do is charge users. That is something you can control. You simply can not control who links to you and how many visitors you get.
