We all know of Digg, Reddit, Mixx, Technorati and StumbleUpon which are great social media (or bookmarking) websites, and in fact are the best for green/environment submissions too. But what about sites specifically for green content? With the demise of EcoBlogs.net I thought I would take a look at other options. As they all work pretty much the same way I’m not going to explain how to use them, plus they’re in no particular order.
Hugg is the biggie, owned by Treehugger. It’s not without it’s problems though, downtime and randomly logging out logged in users being it’s main problems. I’m not sure it gets much attention, the copyright is out of date and it gives off an air of being unloved to me.
Sustain (from Newsladder) is a very new site, so at the moment most articles submitted get between 1 and 3 hits/adds/pluses/whatever, but it’s an easy way to get on the front page. The site does have a Google Page Rank (PR) of 4 and doesn’t seem to use “nofollow” if you care about such things.
Care2 is not just a social bookmarking site, but it does position itself as news, video and more for the conscious world. The home page is PR 7 but just links to more info about your site/submission. It’s pretty popular for a green social bookmark site, and seems to have a good community around it.
MindBodyGreen claims it’s the source for the newest and most popular news on better, healthier, greener living. It does have a nice color-coded system to tell you what each submission is about, a blue icon being about Mind, orange about Body and green, er, about Green stuff. You can vote a submission down as well as up. Home page is a PR 4 and links seem to follow directly.
Plant Change is an usually named Australian site that likes to get articles that stimulate environmental debate. Seems to work pretty much like all the others though you can’t vote negatively, just positively. The homepage has a PR of 4 and the links redirect to the relevant website.
What green social bookmarking sites do you use? Or do you prefer to use the big boys, like Digg?
