Elon Musk is the most discussed entrepreneur in the world, with 340,957 online articles published in a year.
Certain entrepreneurs are so innovative and forward-thinking that their ideas and creations have a monumental and lasting impact on the world.
Interested in business personalities, MoneyTransfers.com analyzed the latest data from online analytics tool Buzzsumo to establish which entrepreneurs in the world have been the most publicized online in the past year (September 2020 – August 2021).
MoneyTransfers.com found that Elon Musk is in the number one spot, as there were an estimated 340,957 online articles written about the Tesla and Space X maverick from September 2020 to August 2021 – the equivalent of 28,413 online articles per month!
Jeff Bezos is in the second position; approximately 142,862 online articles were published about the founder of the e-commerce giant Amazon between September 2020 to August 2021.
In third place is Bill Gates; an estimated 84,262 online articles were written about the co-founder of Microsoft Corporation from September 2020 to August 2021.
Warren Buffett (45,168), Mark Zuckerberg (39,047), and Richard Branson (37,144) are among the other renowned entrepreneurs that had over 35,000 online articles centered around them between September 2020 to August 2021.
In 10th position is Sundar Pichai, the current CEO of Google and Alphabet Inc, who had 10,838 online articles dedicated to him from September 2020 to August 2021.
MoneyTransfers.com identified from a range of reputable online resources (such as Forbes, Bloomberg, etc.) some of the biggest entrepreneurs in the world in terms of reputation and wealth.
Once a comprehensive list of entrepreneurs was drawn up (the list was in excess of 300 entrepreneurs), MoneyTransfers.com inserted each entrepreneur’s name into the Buzzsumo database to identify how many articles were published about that respective entrepreneur.
The period running from September 2020 to August 2021 was used because it represents a 12-month period for conclusive analysis and August 2021 was the last available month for the latest online data/results published by Buzzsumo.
Once the number of online articles published for each analyzed entrepreneur was established, they were ranked from highest to lowest based on the number of online articles published about them, with the top 10 entrepreneurs being included in the final results/data table.
MoneyTransfers.com did take into account the different ways in which online articles are published, with some articles opting to use only the surname of an entrepreneur in their article or an abbreviated version of an entrepreneur’s name in their article e.g. ‘Elon Musk’, ‘Musk’ and ‘E Musk’ (all variations of the same name).
The figures for the number of online articles published for each entrepreneur in the top 10 list are all estimates/approximates and accounts for online articles from around the world published from September 2020 to August 2021.
