Cramer to AOL’s, Bad For SeekingAlpha

Thestreet (TSCM) will now distribute Jim Cramer’s blog for free through AOL’s (TWX)  According to paidcontent, the deal is just a link/content exchange and, for now, doesn’t involve money.  AOL’s late entry into the stock-blogging business, bloggingstocks, has recently caught the industry leader, New York-based Seeking Alpha (see the latest traffic stats from Compete here). 

SeekingAlpha already devotes a whole NAV-bar tab to Mr. Cramer–SeekingAlpha staff are apparently paid to sit through every Cramer broadcast and take notes–but now bloggingstocks will have access to Cramer’s blog, which otherwise sits behind a paid firewall.  Based on Cramer’s celestial popularity, this move would seem to be good for AOL and bad for SeekingAlpha.
