Starting today Yahoo Finance will be carrying content from Seeking Alpha, a site I have contributing to for almost two years.
This has several implications. First I believe it is another validation of some of the content available in the blogosphere. From the start I have been saying the blogosphere would evolve to take in more people, more outlets and more sophisticated content.
Posts from Seeking Alpha will show up as headlines on Yahoo Finance by stock ticker.
Another big implication, I believe, will be to draw in many more readers than currently seek out blogs for information. This will create a couple of clear and obvious benefits. First will be more great questions and comments. The comments left here have increased of late and provide for some excellent back and forth on subjects in ways I may not have otherwise thought to write about. More evolution along these lines makes the experience better for readers and bloggers alike.
Further this will draw new entrants into the blogosphere. Think about your favorite blogs. How many are only a year old? There will be new blogs that come that will be must reads for all of us.
That I have been and continue to be involved with this is a real thrill. Aside from my having fun with the site it is very satisfying to be able help people be a little more knowledgeable with their own portfolios.
This news, I think, speaks to David Jackson's commitment to seek out quality content and his commitment to helping the blogosphere become more relevant. Congratulations to David and the entire team at Seeking Alpha!
