Yes, I’m kind of mixing a couple of stories here, but two interesting things happened today in New York Times land. First, the venerable newspaper launched a new digital subscription for Opinions only, and second, columnist Maureen Dowd got really, really high (and lived to tell the tale!). The New York Times has focused their paywall options to allow readers …
Just two days ago, we reported News Corp., and chairman Rupert Murdoch were contemplating the idea of splitting their news and film assets from their print publication and newspaper divisions. News Corp owns 20th Century Fox film studio, Fox broadcast network and Fox News channel, in the way of television and film. As far as newspaper and print media goes, …
The New York Times newsstand price for its Monday-Saturday paper just went from $2.00 a copy to $2.50. The news giant has steadily increased cover prices over the past few years as consumers have shifted to online sources for news. Despite being affected by the same print downturn that affects all other newspapers, the NYT is still the third-largest print …
I long ago gave up trying to get spammers to "cease and desist" their scraping of Marketing Pilgrim’s content–I never was much good at playing whack-a-mole.
Well, it appears that The Associated Press loves carnival games as the NYT reports the news organization is determined to put an end to the scraping of its content.
Bill Keller, executive editor of the New York Times, gave a long and passionate speech in London last week at a memorial event hosted by The Guardian — the full text of which is here — and in it he said many valuable and wise things about the practice of journalism (although he kind of glossed over stuff like Jayson Blair and Judith Miller, but whatever).
Google has partnered with the Nielsen Company to help the search engine better understand the demographics of those who view its Google TV Ads, reports the NYT.
The multi-year deal will start of small, but will likely grow as Google expands beyond the rather limited network of just 13 million viewers provided by its partner DISH Network.
It seems the New York Times search engine optimization efforts are working well–maybe a little too well for some.
Now that more of the NYT’s archives are appearing in Google’s search results, many individuals are finding their past is catching up with them. Worse, it’s the NYT’s version of their past that contains misinformation.
There’s a disturbing side-effect that’s coming from the increased use of internet marketing – it can be done cheaper in China and India.
While advertising continues to bring us greater efficiencies and cheaper costs, it’s also driving our need for faster turnaround and rapid deployment. When you can test 100 ads online within a week, you need a solution that can keep up with that pace, without breaking the bank.
When SEOmoz’s Rand Fishkin calls something “quite possibly the best mainstream media article about Google, or modern search technology, in the last 5 years,” it’s pretty much our duty to cover it. When Rand Fishkin writes 800 words about said article, well . . . we know better than to condense and summarize.
In fact, when it comes to offline advertising channels, Google is finding that it’s brand is more of a hindrance, than help, when it comes to negotiating deals with radio, TV and newspaper markets. As the NYT highlights, many traditional ad channels are very cautious, if not fearful, that Google will enter their space and devalue the existing offering.
And we have yet another example of the distance contextual advertising has to go. When a New York Times advertisement pops up above a guide to the Big Apple’s cocaine scene, there is clearly more work to be done – unless the NYT would actually endorse such a thing.
The ad is covered in a thick layer of irony, informing its target market that the Times is the "ultimate guide to global travel," advising on:
By now, you have most likely either seen or heard about the NY Times article discussing Google’s recent complaint to the United States Justice Department (the same Justice Department Google recently sparred with in regards to handing over search data).
This morning on Memeorandum there are dozens of bloggers reacting to a New York Times article about IE 7.
Apparently you have to be “logged in” in order to share your views with Dan Gillmor. Sorry, while I accept that’s your policy, I don’t have time.
After a New York Times article outlined the blog-life of Mu Mu, a 25-year-old Chinese blogger, Communist party member, and now free-speech sex symbol, the slammed servers may deny you access to her blog more efficiently than the Chinese government. In short, she hasn’t really said anything the government can object to-she’s not an advocate, she’s a dancer, and a symbol of the new dinner table rebellion.
Martin Nisenholtz, senior vice president of digital operations at The New York Times Company just was on stage and explained …
