Yahoo may be in the process of killing the Yahoo Contributor Network (thanks to the Google Panda update), but it just announced the launch of the Yahoo Finance Contributor Network.
The company describes the new offering as "a finance-focused network powered by Tumblr, where expert contributors will regularly create and share original content."
"Yahoo is opening up the Finance platform to people like Carl Icahn, Jim O’Shaughnessy, Jeffrey Kleintop, and Linda Descano, who have all created their own blogs to publish content that is then pulled directly onto Yahoo Finance pages," a Yahoo spokesperson tells WebProNews. "Tumblr users will also be able to follow Yahoo Finance contributors and program content directly on their Tumblr dashboards."
"We are building a daily habit information and analysis destination where those who want to know what some of the smartest and most accomplished pros in the world are thinking about stocks, commodities, the economy, wealth management and more will be able to find it," says editor Phil Pearlman.
The full contributor blogroll can be found here. So far, it includes: A Wealth of Common Sense (Ben Carlson); Jon Markman; What Works on Wall Street (Jim O’Shaughnessy); Kimble Charting (Chris Kimble); Charlie Bilello; Ryan Detrick; Carl Icahn; Ralph Acampora; Greg Harmon; Linda Descano; Gregor Macdonald; James Altucher; Jeffrey Kleintop; Vitaliy Katsenelson; The Kindergarten (Josh Brown); Najarian Brothers (Jon & Pete); Ivaylo Ivanov; JC Parets; Andrew Thrasher; Erik Swarts; Almanac Trader (Jeff Hirsch); Dan Nathan; The Irrelevant Investor (Michael Batnick); Blue Phoenix (John Licata); Patrick O’Shaughnessy; Blaine Rollins; Jamie Lissette; Joe Mansueto; Andrew Nyquist; Estimize; Scott Krisiloff; Jeremy Hill; Dana Lyons; Market Anthropology (Eric Swarts); The Whipping Post (Justin Frankel); Phil Pearlman;Barry Ritholtz; and Chris Ciovacco.
Those interested in contributing can find instructions for submitting here. Don't expect this to be as inclusive as the dying Yahoo Contributor Network though. Yahoo says it will be "discerning" in its selection.
Meanwhile, Google continues to scare people away from guest blogging.
