The move by Seeking Alpha to restrict their RSS feeds to excerpts is gaining some notice in the investment blogosphere. Maoxian has additional post on the topic, delving deeper in the to the issue full vs. partial feeds and the value of “monetizing” readership.
Howard Lindzon weighs in as well on the topic, but then again he was never a “big fan” of Seeking Alpha to begin with.
Due in part to this policy change, we here at Abnormal Returns have decided to no longer have our posts republished at Seeking Alpha. We do this with some reluctance because this will in all likelihood reduce site traffic, and the acquisition of new readers. Oh well.
