Economist decreases free online content

In a continuing bid to deal with plumetting advertising revenues in the Media sector the economist is increasing the amount of paid for content.

“Joining the scramble of publishers looking to generate more money from readers, The Economist is experimenting with a pay model, the British news and business weekly announced.

The Economist—which only made its Web site available to non-subscribers two years ago—currently lets non-subscribers access content that’s up to a year old. Under the test, starting Oct. 13, the pay wall will apply to all content that’s over 90 days old.”
