How many fewer hits has StarNewsOnline.com gotten since you started requiring a paid subscription to view content?
A. A month after launching our expanded subscription plan that includes digital, StarNewsOnline.com has actually experienced an increase in page views.
Since the launch, we are up about one million page views over the same period one year ago. We believe this is due to the fact that so many of our website users are current subscribers to the StarNews print newspaper. We also have added content for our readers, and have new subscribers.
With the largest reporting team covering local news, business, sports, entertainment and state and local government, we will continue to offer in-depth and complete coverage other local media do not have the resources to provide.
NOTE: Pam Sander is executive editor of the StarNews and StarNewsOnline.com.
