CleanTechnica Hits 2 Big Milestones This Week

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 & 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. :D

Notably, we’re also ranked #25 in the Autos category and #38 in Science. (Btw, sister site Gas2 is currently just above us in the Autos category and is also in the top 30 for Green blogs.)

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. :D

    Great stuff. Congrats! When did the blog start exactly? Some time in 2008 was it?
