Paid and Free Sites From the Boston Globe

Globe to Offer Two Websites: One Free, One Pay
Boston Globe, Sep. 30, 2010

“The Boston Globe next year will split its digital news brands into two distinct websites, keeping Boston.com free while establishing a subscription-only pay site, BostonGlobe.com,” reports Robert Gavin. “The change, scheduled to take place during the second half of 2011, is aimed at building an audience of paid subscribers online, a strategy that newspapers across the country increasingly are moving towards. With this approach, the company also aims to maintain high traffic to Boston.com, one of the nation’s largest regional news sites and a site that generates revenue from advertising.”
