We believe the stock price for SeekingAlpha will rise, if it was publicly traded. Since more people will use it to get investment ideas. However, SeekingAlpha should update readers on the performance of various contributors on a monthly, quarterly and yearly basis. Analysts who predict or implicitly tip price movement correctly, should be given additional reward. They should be listed as top advice giver, if they are mostly right, within any time frame.
Seeking Alpha is full of semi useful articles. We need a metric to separate the good contributors from the weak ones. This will increase Seekingalpha references by professional investors, as well as private ones. A rational indicator, as opposed to a hype indicator. The best analysis might get the least page views, while the worst, but controversial analysis might get the most views.
