shehab + wsj   44 / Media - New York Times set to increase price
The New York Times raised the cover price of its Monday to Saturday editions by 25 cents to $1.50 last year, and its strategy reflects similar moves by other newspapers, including the Wall Street Journal, owned by News Corp, and the Financial Times, owned by Pearson. The Wall Street Journal raised the cover price by 50 cents in each of the last two years and now costs $2 per copy. The Financial Times implemented 50 cent increases in US cover prices in 2005, 2007 and 2008, and now costs $2.50.

Metering: The First 2010 Test of Paid News Content | Newsonomics
The FT model is based on “propensity modeling.” That’s a deeply analytics-based system of carefully monitoring the kinds of news usage its readers demonstrate.  The FT’s view is that it must understand who among their readership  — amid all the miscellaneous referrals sent to it by search engines – really values FT content and the brand behind it, and then charge those readers a subscription fee.
The FT now has 1.8 million registered visitors to its site, up 80% over last January, and 121,200 paying subscribers in the most recent count, up 22% from a year earlier.
