^That's it, Lorna. A push to deliver more relevant ads (and content) to users. More targeted advertising means they can rationalize an increase in advertising cost.

Re: tough timing
Maybe they figure, raise prices by throttling supply and see if users respond to fewer, and presumably more targeted and higher-quality, ads. Worst case, they backtrack.
