Driven by the Covid-19 emergency, we are witnessing a paradigm shift in the way that people and businesses need to work.

Gatekeeping non-story pages

You can gatekeep non-story pages such as SPIN pages, search results and more to create new access models for your website. Such as, limiting access to search results, landing pages or your home page to registered users or even make these pages subscriber-only.

How to provide additional anonymous access to links included in an email Beta

ADvance allows you to meter users based on the source of the traffic, for example where a user comes from a particular referral such as Instagram, LinkedIn, or an email. This lets you target access for anonymous users on top of the existing side-wide gating regime already set up.
