John Mueller from Google announced on the Google Webmaster blog that Google has made the first big change to the first click free program since 2009.

Now, instead of allowing 5 articles for free, Google is dropping that to only 3 articles for free. John wrote, "today we are announcing a change to the FCF limit to allow a limit of three articles a day." "This change will be valid on both Google Search and Google News," John added.

Why the change? It seems because publishers have asked for it. Why now are they asking for it? Because users are accessing content on multiple devices, their desktop, mobile phone, tablets, etc.

John Mueller from Google expanded more on the program and some FAQs on the blog post if you partake in it or if you are interested in partaking in this program.
