Beginning March 28, users who have neither a print subscription or a digital subscription to the New York Times or The International Herald Tribune will be allowed up to 20 articles a month free of charge for accessing the site directly, after which they will be prompted to purchase one of the three digital subscription options.

The Times will allow access to people who arrive at its Web site through search engines like Google and social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. There will, however, be a five-article limit a day for people who visit the site from Google.

I heard the same report. This does not include external links, such as those found here or in friends' e-mails. Those are still unlimited. Posted Image At least until further notice Posted Image

I don't know how the new policy applies to links from search engines.
