  1. Hello Neil,

    Thank you for your suggestion. I guess I failed to include an explanation of Interbrand’s methodology for their Best Global Brands list. We’ll keep that in mind next time we do a similar list.

    To address your concerns, the whole explanation is at this link “” at the “Best Global Brands Criteria for Inclusion” part, just a click away from the source link we provided. Also, if you click on the links provided at the brand names above, Interbrand highlights each brand’s achievements to justify their position on their list.

    I hope that answers it. Thanks again.

  2. When doing articles like these, it’s important to first define how the rankings for “best” are done. For example, I’m pretty sure a lot of people would disagree when the earlier article described Apple as the “best” tech company with no explanation of how it was ranked so.

    In this particular instance, this is a ranking of each company’s market value. So while people may disagree that Apple is the “best” company, no one can argue that it currently has the highest market value among tech companies.

    It may seem like I’m nit-picking, but distinctions like these are important when you’re a site that reviews tech.

    • I read that the first time, too, thanks.

      Here, “brand” can be interchanged with company; they mean the exact same thing. Saying a brand/company is “best” is utterly vague without saying what the yardstick is.

      Best brand in customer satisfaction? Market share? Growth? Market capitalization? Brand awareness? There’s so many ways to rank companies and the order will change depending on what criteria you are following.

      Now, the way Interbrand came up with this particular ranking is by comparing each company’s market value. I was simply saying that it’s important to mention details like that on articles such as this one.

    • Title pa lang nakasulat na ang word na “Brand”
