The Financial Times said today that more than 500,000 are registered users of FT.com.
Since launching a “new access model” in October 2007 where users can sample up to 30 stories for free during a month on FT.com, the acquisition rate has averaged more than 12,000 users per week.
“Not only are registered users increasing on a yearly basis, but page views are 63% higher than this time last year and unique users are 18% higher year on year,” Rob Grimshaw, FT.com’s managing director, said in a statement.
In addition, the FT said it has signed 350 corporate customers, which have unlimited access to its content for multiple users across a variety of platforms.
