The New York Times will refuse the printed version

    Arthur Sulzberger, publisher of the American newspaper The New York Times, announced that in the future the newspaper will stop publishing on paper.

    Only from 2008 to 2009, revenues from the sale of advertising in the newspaper fell by 27%. The publication sees salvation in the online version: in June 2010, according to comScore , The New York Times became the most popular online newspaper in the United States - in May, the site was visited by 32 million 530 thousand unique visitors who viewed an average of 22 pages - which twice as many as competitors.

    According to Sulzberger, The New York Times has tested many models for generating revenue from users for content, but they have not been successful. The newspaper will continue to collaborate with Google on the implementation of the "first click free" service, and will also charge for viewing only certain articles and materials on the site, continuing to experiment with creating a profitable financial model.
