Newspapers are proving so resilient that the term "dying newspaper industry" will be retired in the next year or two.

Newspapers are still profitable, even in the midst of the most punishing ad drought in memory. Readership is at record levels, despite price hikes imposed by publishers. And web interlopers haven't laid a glove on the industry's status as society's dominant news-gatherer.

In parts of Europe, online news sites are adopting measures to discourage readers from commenting because there are just too many posts for editorial staff to monitor.

Guest blogger Tomáš Bella reports on the problem and solutions like his own start-up business, Piano, which bundles media groups together behind a single paywall, allowing users to pay and log in once for access to many sites.

Midday Monday and the Farnham Herald in Surrey is a hive of activity.

Beyond the reception area, you can see, and hear, advertising staff and journalists - reporters, sub-editors, photographers alike - busy working on this week's edition.

The open-plan office is parochial, slightly frayed, but functional. An old clock hanging on the wall counts down this week's deadline.

With a young population, growing advertising market and with hope of new found freedom, the Middle East newspaper industry is set to take off.

That was the assessment that emerged from the 6th annual WAN-IFRA Middle East Conference in Dubai, where more than 250 newspaper publishers, editors and other senior executives from the region gathered to discuss strategies for building their print and digital businesses. The two-day conference ended Wednesday; summaries of the presentations can be found here.

The subject of the conference was cross-media advertising, but a real question was the market itself - one-third of the population below the age of 14, with low newspaper readership and low internet penetration. But speaker after speaker - from Google, from the region's newspapers and from newspaper and media companies beyond the region - talked about the potential for growth.

There are 63 million internet users in the region, but that represents only an 18 percent internet penetration rate. "This shows the huge gap and the growth potential that will hit very soon," said Abdulrahman Tarabzouni, Google's Manager for Emerging Arabia.

To its credit, Apple has made it as easy to purchase a weekly newspaper subscription as it is to purchase a hit single for your iPod. In The Daily's case, the 99-cent weekly price (after a two-week sponsorship by Verizon) is even the same.

Not long ago, some news organizations were beginning to give up on online video. It required significant resources, and it wasn't generating as much revenue or traffic as they had hoped. News organizations that have stuck with it, though, have found that video provides them with a way to advance what they're already doing well, increase time on site, and engage users in ways that traditional narratives can't.

The Miami Herald is one of the media outlets that has had noticeable success with video. Last year, MiamiHerald.com saw about a 25 percent growth in video traffic, making it the second biggest traffic driver behind articles.
