The Yahoo click stuff doesn't change my opinion at all. SeekingAlpha is like any other site you read on a consistent basis. Some articles are well-researched and balanced, some are poor, and there is a whole bunch of comment to fill in the gaps.
If you are just an indexer, then there is really nothing at SA for you. We are 95% index, but also help manage investments for family members, so need to be aware of various stocks and crazy ideas.
As with any site that allows commenting, you can quickly discern if the original article is horse-hooey. From the best authors, you can learn.
Meh. Read both periodically. I like SA's search function so I can look up stuff when I want rather than having to follow daily. Yahoo finance is decent, but seems like search there for news/opinion stuff is so broad it's not that useful.
And +1 on SA article quality being highly variable. Some well-researched insights but other much lower quality pieces too. But comments usu shoot down the pretenders pretty quick, which can be entertaining
