NYT is rebranding International New York Times as the international edition of The New York Times

The latest development in The New York Times’ efforts to build a larger paying audience outside of the U.S. is a rebranding of its international edition. Formerly known as International New York Times, it will be called the international edition of The New York Times going forward. Plus, there will no longer be a separate “global” homepage for users outside of the U.S.: Instead, all readers will be directed to the main site. But, NYT says it will be doing some geotargeting of stories, so a reader in Europe might see a different mix of stories on the homepage than a reader in New York.
