Clarification on what is free to read.

pvtennis04 2 weeks ago in Website updated by Raymond Scott 2 weeks ago 4

I've read the link regarding the paywall, so please don't provide that as the answer.  I have always been able to read News Alerts for free, even after the paywall was instituted.  As of today, it tells me I have reached my limit of free articles.  I am not trying to access full blown analysis of a stock, just a quick blurb about a public announcement by a company.  Are News Alerts considered articles now?  Please clarify.  If they are, that is ridiculous and I will no longer be frequenting Seeking Alpha.  Also, for some reason I am not able to access them for free on my mobile device but I was able to (up until today) on a web browser.  What gives?

Hi,

For non -premium users, the article limit is dynamic based on multiple factors. Also, w.r.to news alerts, since it is also content, it is paywalled. My suggestion would be to start a free trial to access all articles for a limited time period. Get unlimited access to all Premium articles and news, as well as exclusive Quant Ratings. users will have 14 days to try Seeking Alpha Premium. Cancel anytime before the free trial ends to avoid being charged.

Hope this helps!

There are many other sites like SA that offers the knowledge for free. I will no longer use SA.

Do you know of any that have similar News Alerts that you can subscribe to in an RSS feed?  Looks like SA's News Alerts are now behind the paywall as well so will no longer be using them.

When you say the article limit is 'dynamic based on multiple factors' what does that mean?  Similar to the original poster I just started receiving limit notifications yesterday and I am unable to access any articles.
