I think it’s a rather good week for CleanTechnica. I happened to notice that we passed 7,000 published posts on Monday. Pretty astonishing. Thinking back on the past few years, though, it has certainly been a whirlwind. Cleantech is growing at a ridiculous, breakneck pace — from solar to wind to electric vehicles, the growth is pretty staggering. And, of course, we’re doing our best to cover everything going on in this field.
And that brings me to the second milestone we’ve hit this week:
CleanTechnica is currently the #1 ‘Green’ blog according to Technorati (out of 9,873). We rose to #3 in January of 2011, but I didn’t really think we’d rise higher than that — there were some big names (publishing great content) above us. But, somehow, we have! (Fits rather nicely with our Compete.com & Quantcast.com statistical rankings as the #1 cleantech or clean energy site in the world.) Of course, Technorati’s rankings change from day to day, and I’m sure we won’t hold the top spot forever, but we have actually been holding steady all week.
One more milestone we’re actually on the verge of hitting will probably be surpassed within a week or so. I’ll update you when that happens.
I'm the director of CleanTechnica, the most popular clean energy website in the world, and Planetsave, a leading green and science news site. I've been covering green news of various sorts since 2008, and I've been especially focused on solar energy, electric vehicles, bicycling, and wind energy for the past few years. You can also find my work on Scientific American, Reuters, Think Progress, GE's ecomagination site, several sites in the Important Media network, & many other places.
