SF Chronicle's paywall comes down after only four months

LINK

quote:

After less than four months, the San Francisco Chronicle has torn down its paywall, saying little about what led to the decision. I presume that the signup numbers were very very low, and that the drop in ad-views was sufficiently alarming that it made management reconsider.

Yay for the free internet!

Paywalls are stupid. Charging for ads by impression will net a lot more money, esp if it only costs a couple bucks a month for a Sunday subscription to get past it.

The Chronicle never offered enough content to make it worthwhile. It was basically a nola.com-esque rag, full of blogs about celebrities and other bs like that. If you're going to have a paywall you need to offer top of the line, unique content (WSJ, NYT, FT).

Most of the time the free crap on their site isn't worth the click.
