Would you use a "surveywall" on your website?
kreiley 1 year ago
Google has apparently developed a new way of monetizing the Interwebs - putting websites behind a "Surveywall", which is somewhat analogous to a paywall. In order to gain access to a website, users have to answer a single, simple question. An examples given by Google is of two images of a product in different color packages, and users are asked to pick the one they prefer. In a way I think it is brilliant, yet at the same time I wonder how people would react to it. Clearly, this wouldn't be appropriate for many sites, but I can see how it would be preferable to a paywall that no one pays. How would you react to websites implementing the Surveywall? Thumbs up or thumbs down?
Here's an article that gives more detail about it.
