Who's #1?No two brand rankings are alike, which is why sometimes Apple is the world's top brand, sometimes Google, sometimes another brand. Year to year, the exact brand rankings can change, but usually the same group of well-known brands stays in the top tier.
Here are three brand rankings published during the past year:
- According to Forbes, Apple is the world's most valuable brand, followed by Google, Microsoft, Coke, and Facebook. (published 2016)
- According to Interbrand, Apple is the world's best brand followed by Google, Coke, Microsoft, and Toyota. (published 2016)
- According to Brand Finance, Google is the world's most valuable brand, followed by Apple, Amazon, AT&T, and Microsoft. (published 2017)
