Top 1K: Top 1000 brands on the net

Google have today published the top 1000 visited brands on the internet. Makes for some very interesting reading. You’ll need at least 4 million, unique visitors, for your site to make the list. To make just 1%, takes 16 million unique visitors. Looks like we’ve got some work to do here at Truly Deeply.

It’s interesting that they feel it’s ok to publish everyone else’s details, but kept their own private. Some might see this as an insight into how Google manages privacy.

Also a lot has been made of Apple’s market cap passing Microsoft’s.

Maybe time for a ground up rethink of their brand to go along with the internal reshuffle that’s going on.

Anyway, I’ll let you draw your own conclusions, here’s the Top 20:

Google 11-20

Here’s the full 1000

Your brand may never make Googles top 1000, but it is vital to the success of your business.
