Google Upgrades TheGreenJobBank from PageRank 4 to PageRank 5

Nice surprise yesterday when my Quirk SearchStatus toolbar showed that TheGreenJobBank was a PR5!!

TheGreenJobBank Ranked USA's #1 Green Jobs Website

I just finished a comparison of about 30 green job websites, and TheGreenJobBank comes up #1 in the USA, as ranked by Alexa.
