seekingalpha-logoEli Hoffmann, the vice president of content and editor in chief of Seeking Alpha, reports that the financial news website has reached 4 million registered users.

Hoffmann writes, “On the occasion of reaching 4 million registered users, I thought it would be interesting to share with readers some key data points about Seeking Alpha and our audience. Where appropriate, I have also shared brief thoughts about why these numbers matter to us.

  • Registered users: 4,020,014 – creating a SA user account enables users to comment, to StockTalk, to like others’ comments, to create a portfolio, to receive alerts on their stocks, etc. It speaks to a level of commitment to, and engagement with, our community. Two-and-a-half years ago, on March 21, 2012, we reached 1 million registered users; since then we’ve been clocking them up.
  • Average unique visitors per month: 7 million.
  • Real-time subscribers: 2.4 million – real-time subscribers receive email and mobile alerts when news breaks and when analysis is published on their stocks. Our ability to deliver pinpoint single-stock news and analysis directly to users is why the quality of single-stock research and discussion on SA is unparalleled.
  • Real-time subscriptions: 23.08 million – that’s almost 10 subscriptions per subscriber.
  • Emails sent per month: 230 million – in October, at the peak of the most recent earnings season, we sent out 295 million emails to subscribers (we don’t spam).”
