Payson Roundup Expands Digital Partnership With Google


Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 3, users of may notice something a little different.

The Payson Roundup has expanded its partnership with Google to provide an alternative to subscription-based Web sites. When users visit pages on the, they will see some content, but to view all content, readers will be asked to answer a survey question such as, “Do you drink soda?” or to share the content on a social media site such as Facebook or Twitter.

By performing either of these actions, all content will appear. The survey question will be displayed only on the first page the reader views.

Users will be asked to answer only one survey every 24 hours. All surveys will be anonymous, and Google will not use any data collected for its own ad targeting. Revenue from the surveys will aid in our efforts to keep an advertiser-funded Web site with content that is free to readers.

Those who have questions or comments about the surveys can direct them to Payson Roundup Publisher, John Naughton at (928) 474-5251 or

Partnership...? Sorry, but it looks more like a kidnapping to me. And I'm just curious, comrade, are the pro-Big Government stories from the Cronkite News Service included in that partnership?
