Joins New York Times and BloombergQuint
Articles should be truncated and moved behind the paywall as they grow old. Their URLs should not be changed to retain whatever search engine mojo they have acquired. And, the meta tags for robots (in the HTML) should say “index,nofollow,nocache,noarchive”.
Instead of promoting social media sites and writing click-baity articles using millennials, how about hiring some experienced journalists and programmers.
They say that the site is still free if you sign up but I was not going to investigate. With BloombergQuint, I had to write a GreaseMonkey script.
They are selling one-year subscription for Rs. 3000.
I mailed BloombergQuint a few days ago but they don’t care. They seem to think that even if someone figures this out, it is still a hassle to do this on all pages. I have a GreaseMonkey script that does this automatically on all their pages. Not that I read the site every day.
BloombergQuint is one of the few remaining independent news organizations. The Quint was in the news recently when Modi govt raided their offices after some explosive Rafale deal-related stories and IT officials were found cloning the contents of journalists’ phones and computers.
