Unfortunately Advertising and Publicity are an essential part of the Publishing landscape and whilst many of the GoogleAds   or Taboola Branded content articles are irritating  for  many readers ,.we can see from the Click on Google Ads ,..that they can also be quite useful as they are tailored for our audience demographics.

Access to the Sydney Times will continue completely Free of charge until early March  2023 when we will progressively introduce a user friendly paywall to ensure to enhance security and ensure that the traffic on our site is comprised of genuine readers and not Bots,Hackers and other “lowlife” Media agents interested in stealing ideas and content .

It is for this reason that we will have to enforce e-mail registration as our site becomes increasingly popular,.. in the interests of everybody’s security. Unfortunately, the Australian people have witnessed this year ,..the Cyberworld is now full of malicious state and private sector actors both at home and abroad,.. who are only too willing to hack a site or cause damage for a variety of reasons.
