Looking at Paywalls with Different Eyes

Looking at Paywalls with Different Eyes | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good

Robin Good's curator insight, December 29, 2012 4:10 AM


Paywalls are gradually changing, giving way to more osmosis between what is inside them and what can be accessed and shared by those who haven't paid up for it.


Erecting rigid barriers around news content may not be the best strategic move if your competitors cover the same ground and interests that you focus on.


On PandoDaily, Hamish Mckenzie reports that the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal both offer great examples of how to manage paywalls in a more effective fashion, by utilizing them more as “passes” "that give subscribers access to a publisher’s content wherever that content may be", rather than being rigid gates where no trespassing is enforced in a military way.


As a matter of fact "both the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal let anyone read their content for free, provided they find it via Facebook, Twitter, or Google. They know that it’s easy to get around the paywalls in other ways..."


"The “paywalls” we’re seeing today, however, are different and place more emphasis on the first syllable of the word. Call this Phase Two of the paywall. The newspapers want you to pay, but the walls are lower and more permeable.


...They know that it’s easy to get around the paywalls in other ways – such as deleting the extraneous code pasted onto the end of a story’s URL – but they figure the costs of “losing” the revenue opportunities on those stories are lower than the gains they make from the people who prove willing to pay a subscription."



Rightful. Insightful. 7/10

Robin Good's curator insight, December 27, 2012 2:12 PM



TheWebMiner is an experimental web-based scraping tool capable of rapidly capturing any amount of structured data from any web page (for example a Google search result page). Once captured the data can be saved in SQL, CSV, XML, JSON and Excel file formats.

TheWebMiner is very easy to use, as you only need to provide the reference URL page, and text samples of the structured data units that you would like to capture.


The service is free until January 5 2013.


Pricing thereafter: http://thewebminer.com/priceing

Therese Torris's curator insight, December 28, 2012 9:55 AM

Structured data scraping/crawling/extraction is a major step up from the simpler text and image extraction now familiar from generalist content curation tools like Scoop.it. It's about recognizing and extractic specific types of structured data like product names, product prices, taxes, brand names etc. 

 

Structured data extraction used to be the priviledge of a few high tech companies like Google.

 

It looks like it will soon be everybody's tool !

One of the first books I read about website design, this would have been in 1998 or so, said use red, black and white because nothing looks better. These templates demonstrate how powerful these three colors can be all by themselves.

They also demonstrate the power of Occam's razor. Remove things down to a simple core and your website becomes more powerful due to one of those web design anomalies - less is more.

If you expected the New York Times to be a failure, you'll have to think again. Not only its digital subscription is profitable but it is also become quite a relevant money-generating revenue channel.



From the original article: "More than a year and a half later, it’s clear the New York Times’ paywall is not only valuable, it’s helped turn the paper’s subscription dollars, which once might have been considered the equivalent of a generous tithing, into a significant revenue-generating business. As of this year, the company is expected to make more money from subscriptions than from advertising — the first time that’s happened."


"Despite the metrics, the larger significance of the Times’ newfound subscription wealth is that readers, not advertisers, are now more directly responsible for the Times’ business — minus a few stubborn bloggers."


Informative. 7/10
