SeekingAlpha Goes Mobile

https://staticseekingalpha.a.ssl.fastly.net/uploads/2010/11/10/ap1_white_bg.jpgIn our efforts to bring you more exposure, we are happy to announce that this week we launched our mobile site.  This will enable anyone with a smartphone to view SeekingAlpha 'on the go' in a cleaner, simpler layout designed specifically for mobile browsing. 

There's no need to install anything, simply type seekingalpha.com into your
mobile browser. The mobile site has been specifically optimized to work with iPhones/iTouches and we hope to add support for Blackberries in the near future.



Improved Dashboards

You may have noticed that we've updated all dashboards on the site to include a "most popular" articles unit and a "currently discussed articles" unit in the right-hand column.  These new features will help highlight your popular and high interest articles and discussions.

After receiving feedback from our users and authors, we've decided to change the "Global Markets" dashboard and have renamed it "Global Investing."  Also, we are excited to announce that Europe is now part of the dashboard. You can see the changes here.

Finally, don't forget to check out our new "Investing for Income" dashboard, which provides extensive ideas for retirees and other income-oriented investors on dividend stocks, bonds, and ETFs.  You can also receive the "Investing for Income" newsletter by e-mail by clicking on the "Get Investing for Income by email" button at the top of the page.


New Tech Currents

https://staticseekingalpha.a.ssl.fastly.net/uploads/2010/11/10/tech_currents.pngThanks to your suggestions, we've expanded our popular Market Currents product to include Tech Currents which we expect to become a must-read for anyone interested in tech stocks.

Like Market Currents, Tech Currents will be a lively, edgy, running narrative of news and commentary relating to the tech industry.  It will help investors not only keep up to date with breaking news and commentary, but subtly help them understand the 'so what' behind the news, and lead them ultimately to make more timely, better informed decisions. 

Whenever possible, we will link to your articles from our highly trafficked Market and Tech Currents sections to bring you more exposure.

Integrated Search
We've made searching for your topics on the site much easier and more efficient. You can now search for your favorite topics on the site and see results from articles, transcripts, and market currents organized by tabs. See a sample search here.
