Initial rank 96 on Top50-Solar English version and climbing
Top50-Solar® (http://www.top50-solar.de) is an activity driven web catalog ranking registered solar and renewable energy websites based on their average number of visitors over the past 5 days. German, English, Spanish, and Portuguese websites are tracked and ranked in separate lists. Internationalized websites appear to be traffic ranked on a cumulative basis across their supported languages.
The Top50-Solar® was founded by Martin Staffhorst in July 2000 to provide objective and reliable traffic rankings of solar websites. Mr. Staffhorst has a Masters degree in Industrial Engineering (Dipl.-Wi.-Ing.) and is now working on his PhD.
Top50-Solar first tracked German solar websites and ranks 600 unique German language websites today including manufacturers, installers, e-stores, magazines, consultants, and organizations. SolarWorld AG (FRA:SWV) is ranked number three (3) on the Top50-Solar German list. PHOTON’s German website, PHOTON das Solarstrom-Magazin online, and English website, PHOTON International, are notably absent from the Top50-Solar rankings.
While Top50-Solar has a strong presence among German solar and renewable energy websites, Mr. Staffhorst is looking to expand the Top50-Solar’s global reach and expects the English version to rival the German version in the future.
I recommend the two top US solar and renewable energy websites, SolarBuzz and RenewableEnergyAccess.com, join the Top50-Solar web catalog. Both sites would debut at the top of the rankings. Photovoltaic companies such as Evergreen Solar Inc. (NASDAQ:ESLR), First Solar LLC, and SunPower Corporation (NASDAQ:SPWR) would also benefit from listing with Top50-Solar.
Smaller solar and renewable websites and blogs will gain traffic and international exposure by registering with Top50-Solar. Put on your marketing hat and register right away.
