went downhill in the recent years
I used to write for Seeking Alpha until last year. This used to be a MUCH better place and MUCH more valuable. Now it offers absolutely nothing to investors. Since they started paying authors per click (for those that don't know, they pay their authors 1 cent per click), they started to attract all sorts of wrong people. In the past, most writers were actually investors with real experience. Now, most writers are college kids who happened to study finance and know a couple terms, trying to make some money on the side while studying. These people have no real investing experience and they usually don't even know what they are talking about. Also, many people try to generate clicks by using sensational headlines like "Amazon will double by next year!" or "3 reasons Ford is a terrible investment"
The place went downhill in the last few years. Most of the good writers have already left. Why would a good writer with a lot of investment experience write for 10-12 dollars per hour anyways? Before Seeking Alpha paid people to write, many people paid for enjoyment or getting their name out there but now none of the real investors write there.
