How To Get Past The Times Paywall?

Recommended Posts

Why would you want to? It's just a Murdoch-rag.

If you want to read it, go to a newsagents and read it there. Put it back on the shelf after, of course...

I would but it was yesterday.

Why not just pay?

because I'm a tight ******* and I'm not paying £1 to read one article.

I dont think there is a google trick for the Times. There is for the Financial Times though.

Is the FT behind a paywall? Murdoch doesn't own that one.

Oh well. What's the FT one for future reference?

The FT for some reason, allow the Google spider to have full access to their content, which can then be displayed in the Google News section. If you click a FT link from Google you can read it if its a paid for article.

Probably because the FT's readership will mostly be corporate types who pay for it via work, where as cheapo HPC types will be quite happy to take 10 or 20 seconds to find the article via google and then read it.

Went to the Financial Times web site and clicked on random links. No restrictions that I can see. I'm not signed in or anything.

Which bits are restricted?

I think you get 20 articles for free!

I'll pay the £1 subscription and then you lot can pay me 20p for the password.

We all share. If you stop paying, I'll change the password.

Cheap for you and I could make a profit. ;)

How does that sound?
