Following our Tech Companies’ ranking, HackerNoon’s Tech Companies News Pages just got a major upgrade, all in service of representing your company’s internet footprint as accurately as possible on our news database of 11,000+ top tech companies in the world!

Let’s dive into it.

The New(er) Evergreen Pages

If you visit, you’ll see four main pages: home, news, about, and blog:

The HomePage features a logo, name, slogan, email, employee numbers, funding date, ranking, and description. It also includes a graphic of the company’s ranking and stock price (for public companies).

Scroll down for a list of similarly ranked companies (with option to hide list reserved for Premium Brands only), brand mentions in HackerNoon stories, and a company wiki.

The company ranking’s top variable is interest from HackerNoon readers. To improve your ranking, direct more traffic to your evergreen page or write more stories on HackerNoon and boost both your content and your page.

The News page exhibits all stories that mention the company and presents a related companies’ listicle. Here’s what it looks like:

The About page will lead you to the company’s wiki, which has all the essential info about the foundation and story of the brand, and the blog button will direct you to the brand’s profile page. Check out Microsoft's page to fully grasp our updates.

The Blog page currently is reserved for our business blogging customers, who hosts their blogs on HackerNoon; and for Premium brands, who can link any external blog post to this section. (See more about Unlocking Evergreen Premium below)

In the future, primary brand profile pages, such as this one, will be replaced with Tech Company News pages as the primary business page (such as this one). The collection of stories by the business will still be available as [company name] blog.

How to Unlock Premium Features

To preview Premium features as are on your Evergreen Pages, Click the “Show Upgrades” button on top right, and you’ll see ability to:

  • Add A wide video banner
  • Hide Competitor List
  • Add non-HackerNoon links via the Web Articles section
  • Link either your HackerNoon Blog or your corporate Blog via the Blog Section

Premium features are all about control, so you can capture your company details and comprehensive presence on the interwebs. There are several ways they could make your company better, but we want to focus specifically on your ability to curate your 6 best articles around the web, as demonstrated below:

As seen above, you can:

  • Add an article with header image, title, published date, author, and URL
  • Arranged your article in order by deleting/adding new ones
  • Have total control over the top 6 most important links about your company

The left column, in the Evergreen Premium example, is full of your company stories on HackerNoon, when/if your company name is mentioned. The best way to take advantage of this automatic feature, is of course, our Business Blogging. Or, if you are not interested in telling your own story and would rather the community talk about you instead, you might wanna check our our Writing Contests.

Until next time, please enjoy your brand new curated Evergreen pages, if you have one, or apply for one here, if you don’t!
