I always shake my head when people think that their single click to a website means anything at all to anyone.

Whatever, when I want to waist minutes...nay, hours, reading crap the Daily Mail never disappoints.

Take that analysis and apply it to any newspaper site.  It's the same story - a few are barely profitable, and most lose money.

Your blog sucks.

I don't avoid clicking on their links to prevent them from getting ad revenue; I avoid clicking because the "articles" are an insult to my intelligence.

Same. And losing a bit of money doesn't matter if your main goal is to be a propaganda organ for the right.

LOL... Nice job mods! For sticking this between two Daily Fail links.

It's really not an insult once you learn to view their dribble with a sense of humor.

Why do you think Daily Fail links are so popular on Fark? They're fun to mock, pure and simple.

Jokes on them, because of adblock, my clicks cost them money.

That's not how the internet works, you realise....

I starting blocking The Daily Mail about two months ago and ignore links on Fark that go to them anyway.

They're about as fictional as The Weekly World News.

Yes, I'm sure they have no costs related to the number of visitors to their site, and I'm sure none of that is offset by ad views.

Everyone has that friend. The one who, every time something from the Daily Mail gets shared on social media, feels compelled to reply almost instantly with "UGH. DON'T LINK TO THE MAIL. YOU'RE PLAYING INTO THEIR HANDS. THEY WIN IF YOU CLICK ON THAT LINK." They're the same type who habitually refer to it as the Daily Heil, or the Waily Mail, or the Maily Fail. The self-appointed community support officers who like to slip on their hi-viz tabards and pad around the internet telling other users to put that down and stop climbing on that.

Their modest profit is offset by their owner, a British Lord called Viscount Rothemere, being legally resident in France for tax reasons while owning the Daily Mail through several dozen trusts in the British Virgin Islands, Jersey and Switzerland, again for tax reasons. This also meant apparently that he paid no inheritance tax when his father died and left him the paper.
While they print articles criticising BBC presenters for saving a few hundred pounds a year in tax by being self employed.

/They also criticise the BBC almost daily but never ever tell their readers they are major shareholders in ITN, direct competitors to the BBC.

I don't even bother clicking to their site. Outside of Terrorizer, British mags and news pages are a joke to begin with.

They also own Zoopla, hence the number of property ads articles being run.

The Mail has always had a thing about house prices.

Well, they're like the onion with their fake articles. Just less funny. Well..not funny at all, actually.
 
2014-03-06 07:42:27 PM
So, did they finally say somewhere in that article what their actual profit was?

James!: I always shake my head when people think that their single click to a website means anything at all to anyone.


Unfortunately, it does.

Why do you think Fark counts the number of time an article is "clicked"?

Wait, what? Last I heard, Zoopla had Jewish interests - which is why they withdrew their West Brom sponsorship over the Anelka affair.

Pretty sure the Rothermeres would prefer to avoid those people.

Anybody else notice the source says "popbiatch" without the filter? Can we say biatch now, since the source can?
 
2014-03-06 08:30:08 PM
No, we can't say biatch. That is a huge double standard.

20/20: So, did they finally say somewhere in that article what their actual profit was?


The Daily Mail group, which is mainly known for the DM but also owns other newspapers and various media businesses, made a profit of £100 million, about $170 million, but they don't break it down to individual parts of the business so there is no way of knowing. Even if they did they could play around with the figures by changing how much Online pays the print operation for stories.

One area TFA didn't mention is apparently they make a lot of money from charging celebs to feature them in the sidebar of shame. This probably explains why there are so many Z-list celebs I've never heard about that feature again and again.

What do people expect? It's british. When you have an isolated island of largely "proper" white people, all their expressions are going to be fairly offensive to any other part of the world that's actually living -in- the real world. It's not really just a "Daily Mail" problem.

They merged with Daily Mail in 2012, with Daily Mail & General Trust having the lions share. The founder of Zoopla is still there.
