Pando: 1500!
[P]aying for our journalism directly [...] less dependent on pageviews[.] Weve long understood that there were two types of article on Pando: The ones you absolutely couldnt find anywhere else, and the ones you possibly could. It’s the first kind that, for good or ill, have built Pando’s reputation. These are the articles in which, to quote John Gruber, we “Pando the hell out of a story.” Uber, Secret, the Techtopus -- regular readers know the hall of fame. Likewise our long-form profiles of inspiring entrepreneurs, PandoMonthly event series, and curve-ball regulars like The War Nerd and Brad Jonas’ brilliant illustrations. [...] By contrast, although we always try to avoid publishing linkbait and pure opinion, some of the posts which on the previous model might have been great for search traffic or guilty clicks have fallen off a cliff under the new model. Further proof that the high-traffic snackable content that’s good for advertisers isn’t necessarily valued by readers.  PandoDaily  Sarah  Lacy  business  model  paywalls  paywall  journalismus  investigative  journalism  journalism  niche  pageviews  The  Content  Wars  value  creation  TechCrunch  Re/Code  The  Verge  Silicon  Valley  disposable  income  discretionary  spending  convenience  consumer  product  mass  market  product  management  Product/Market  Fit  freemium  Clickbait  Linkbait  linkbaiting  copywriting  click  bait  The  Information  noise  noise  pollution  Signal  vs.  attention  span  productivity  zombie  consumer  quality  long-form

You gotta read this! — Maker’s Perspective — Medium
org - "And since publishers — news organizations — are thinking that we aren’t reading, many of them focus on simple topline metrics like uv’s, page views, shares and likes and don’t track or use engagement metrics to manage their business. Another bad loop. [....] [... the user divide ...] It seems like we have two opposing trends going on simultaneously. On one end of the curve rabid sharing is driving an attention cycle of seconds but on the other end people are reading and watching more. The social web has flattened web sites and made the home page irrelevant to many sites — simultaneously the shift to the phone/tablet and the mobile app internet is unbundling the web that we knew. The combination of these two trends is changing media and how we use and experience it."
