Google has decided to provide the opportunity for publishers to limit the number of accesses for free, from Google services (like Google News), the web pages of their newspapers.
"We have decided to allow publishers to limit the number of free access to five user access to web a day," writes an officer on the official Google blog.
Google has developed the program "First click free" whereby publishers participating in this program will enable the Google spider to index the content of their sites and users can view the entire articles accessible from Google News and Google Search without having to register or subscribe to the site you will find the item you want to read ("the first click is free"). However, if the user clicks on a link in order to continue browsing the site to pay the publisher will charge a fee or user registration.
Google says the program "First click free" is a great way for publishers to promote their content and for users to control a source of information before deciding whether to pay.
Google has updated the program "First click free" so that publishers can limit access to users at no more than five pages a day, without the need for registration or enrollment.
