Financial Blog Wars Heat Up

A looks at comScore data for January and February show that the battle between the two largest financial blogs, Seeking Alpha and BloggingStocks, is getting more competitive.

In February, Seeking Alpha had 797,000 unique visitors. BloggingStocks had 2.385 million. The numbers were much closer together in January.

In February, Seeking Alpha had about three million total pages viewed, compared to about five million in January. The BloggingStocks figure was five million in both months.

BloggingStocks is owned by AOL. Seeking Alpha is independent. 24/7 Wall St. recently put the SA value at $15 million. Blogging has come of age.
