Rupert Murdoch Gets Shy: Tries To Hide Traffic To His Pre-Paywalled Sites
from the don't-want-any-comparisons... dept
It looks like even Rupert Murdoch and his crew at News Corp. aren’t all that confident in how well his new paywalls for his newspapers in the UK are going to do. Apparently, News Corp. has convinced the media-owned organization, ABC, that tracks traffic to newspaper sites in the UK, to no longer publish the numbers for his sites. ABC is still tracking the numbers, but it won’t publish them. Apparently, someone is a bit sensitive about people noticing how much traffic has shrunk. Maybe it’s starting to sink in that there really is competition online, and most of it is remaining free.
