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.
We also have, by far --an order of magnitude higher, more green jobs than any other site. Compared to our 10,000, the closest behind us is Eco.org with 650. In fact, we have more green jobs than the total of all green jobs posted on all these sites!
I just have a caveat: some of the green job boards in the comparison are a small part of a website with a much wider scope (#1 is renewableenergyworld.com), and Alexa doesn't give the details of subsets of these sites such as the job search pages. However, if we count all the traffic to these sites, TheGreenJobBank comes up at a very respectable #4 in the US, and #7 in the world.
I also looked at the Google pagerank of these sites, and there's absolutely no correlation whatsoever between traffic as reported by Alexa, and the Google pagerank. So I wonder what Google is doing... and this casts some serious doubts about Google's pagerank algorithm! You'll see the numbers below. Of course, that's if you trust Alexa's numbers.
One more thing before I show you the numbers: some of these sites want to appear a lot bigger than they really are, and get most of their jobs (sometimes 99%) from aggregators SimplyHired and Indeed. And I'm not kidding with 99%, --one of them has a handful of jobs posted on its site, and claims "thousands of green jobs"... from SimplyHired, if you dig a little. For more info on that, and the quality of these jobs, you can see my post SimplyHired's Number of Green Jobs is Simply Bogus.
And please don't get me wrong, I didn't do this comparison exercise to make fun or deride other sites. There are some that I actually really like. I did it just to prove 3 points:
- Of course to promote TheGreenJobBank, and also:
- The Green Job search web business is young and very fragmented, and that creates a problem for employes: where to post?
- As in many other cases, in time there will be only 2 or 3 left, and I intend TheGreenJobBank to be one of them and retain its #1 position!
Now on to the numbers:
|renewableenergyworld||29,812||12,460||US||PR5||7||Main site rank|
|sustainablebusiness||143,774||49,727||US||PR6||270||Main site rank|
|sustainableindustries||318,828||87,653||US||PR5||25||Main site rank|
|TheGreenJobBank||376,967||104,531||US||PR5||10,000||#1 in US|
|CleanTechies||223,294||114,518||US||PR4||67||thousands of jobs... by SimplyHired|
|energyplacement||942,457||214,522||US||PR4||200||number of jobs is best guess|
|greenpages||534,692||227,689||US||PR6||1||Main site rank|
|environmentalcareers.info||964,617||286,175||US||PR6||16||not responding today|
|greenindustryjobs||2,205,103||526,864||US||PR3||680||great for landscape jobs|
|cleantech.org||1,709,396||no rank||US||PR5||16||Main site rank|
|eco.org||2,244,648||no rank||US||PR7||642||This is a great site!|
|energyjobsites||23,047,741||no rank||US||PR4||3||thousands of jobs... by SimplyHired"|
In conclusion, I would add that many of these green job sites have the same jobs, and TheGreenJobBank is very good at detecting that. We have a great algorithm to detect cross-job-postings. Just run this search (opens a new tab/window), and look at the "From" of these jobs.
