  • Seeking Alpha Ranked as a Top 10 Blog Platform 4 comments
    Jun 15, 2009 7:46 AM

    Everyone in Seeking Alpha was excited to see us ranked in the top 10 blogs and personal websites (just!) by Marketing Charts, based on data from HitWise.

    We're particularly happy to be grouped with MySpace, LiveJournal and Blogger, because our goal is to make Instablogs a powerful and popular blogging platform.

    In the upgrades which we launched yesterday, we made Instablogs the most powerful free blogging platform on the 'net for finance. We rolled out integrated functionality specifically for financial content: separate navigation by stock ticker and theme, integrated micro-blogging (StockTalk), quote pages, and auto-linked stock tickers within posts.

Instablogs are blogs which are instantly set up and networked within the Seeking Alpha community. Instablog posts are not selected, edited or screened by Seeking Alpha editors, in contrast to contributors' articles.
