CNN Is Worried About Page Views

by TheMadHat on February 14, 2007

So what’s the deal with CNN? I can’t figure out their intentions on this one. As Loren reported a few weeks back, Google now has snippets from RSS feeds appearing on the personalized home pages. CNN doesn’t let you see some of the snippets. I don’t know if it’s a lack of understanding on how they work, or they just want to jack up their page view numbers. When the snippets first appeared, all of the stories were displaying “Read full story for latest details” as seen below:

CNN No Snippet

Now some of the stories are showing the snippets:

What’s the deal CNN? Let’s go with one or the other. Page view numbers are soon to be an obsolete thing of the past anyway so just bite the bullet and use the snippets.
