Happy Second Birthday, We Got This Covered!


Happy Second Birthday, We Got This Covered!

Hey everybody. Guess what? Today is a very special day. Why, you may ask? Well, it’s our birthday, and We Got This Covered is two years old! Yup, that’s right. Today marks our 730th day in existence. Exciting, isn’t it?

Like we did last year, let’s take a look back on our history and reflect on how far we’ve come since June 28th, 2010. It’s definitely been a tough and trying two years but here we are, still standing and still in one piece.

So, 6.5 million page views and 4.5 million visitors later, it’s time to give ourselves a pat on the back for making it this far. After all, most sites don’t make it past their first year!

As we continue to expand our reach (we have visitors from 227 countries around the world), we also continue to rack up our accomplishments. With contributions from over 100 authors and close to 10,000 articles, our library of content continues to grow everyday. Oh, and there’s also our fantastic podcast: WGTC Radio.

The Internet has definitely taken notice of us in our two short years of existence. As of the time of this writing, Google has given us a page rank of 4, Alexa bestows upon us a ranking of 86,409 and Quantcast ranks us 15,641.

It’s not only the Internet that is waking up and getting acquainted with the site though, companies from all around the world are starting to see the potential in WGTC. Strong contacts have been established between We Got This Covered and every single major movie and video game studio, which has allowed us to bring you access to all the hottest news in the entertainment world.

Through obtaining press passes to festivals like SXSW, Cannes and TIFF, as well as gaming conventions like E3 and PAX, we’ve brought you coverage from all the biggest events and will continue to do so.

Our strong connections to the entertainment world have also enabled us to bring you, our valued readers, juicy interviews with some of the hottest names in entertainment like: Seth RogenDaniel Radcliffe, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Charlize Theron, Steven Spielberg, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Jesse Eisenberg, Michael C. Hall and many, many more.

Finally, other outlets have noted our accomplishments too. We Got This Covered has been recognized by well known websites like The Huffington Post, Indie Wire, IFC, NBC, MTV, Guardian, Moviefone, AV ClubTotal Film and more.

To thank you, our readers, for all your support, we’re holding another contest. I know, we’ve already hosted over 80 but hey, why not hold another one? Click here to find out more details on how you can enter for a chance to win some awesome prizes.

Really though, we owe everything to you, the readers. We wouldn’t have made it this far had it not been for you. And so, from all of us at We Got This Covered, we’d like to thank each and every one of you. You have made the site into what it is today and your support is appreciated.

It’s not easy running a website and we don’t pretend that we’re perfect. I’m only human and running a website is a very difficult job. Things are not always going to go as planned. But, there is one thing that I can promise you though, and that is that we will always do our absolute best to provide quality content to you, the reader.

Once again, from all the staff at We Got This Covered, thank you! And here’s hoping for another successful year!
