“History Of Yesterday” Closed Its Doors

  • 1 min read

Here’s why.

A few weeks back, “History of Yesterday” with 25k followers closed its doors.

History of Yesterday had 2 million monthly views.

Why does a successful publication close?

Linda Caroll has the answer:

  • Ongoing piracy problems. Stories were being scraped from Medium repeatedly and they didn’t do anything to resolve it.
  • Recent changes to the algorithm. The algorithm didn’t “favor” the publication. Linda shared: “I’ve noticed that, too. In the past, all my posts in that publication got curated. Now it’s hit-and-miss. Mostly miss.”

The owner Andrei Tapalaga ✒️moved his publication to his own domain.

Now he’s funding his site with ads.
