In Geekwire 200 index, you can filter by company type and sort rankings by specific values.
We ranked #3 in MozTrust - What does this mean?
MozTrust is a measurement of link trust, not popularity. Having links to your site from highly trusted and credible institutions such as universities or the government help rank you on a higher scale of trust. MozTrust is calculated by an algorithm developed by Yahoo engineers similar to trust algorithms used by Google and Bing engineers. A lot of Survey Analytics company growth and the connections we have made have come organically. You won't catch us posting links in random blog comments and forums just to have a link to our site. These are bad for your MozTrust scores. Have you ever heard the quote...people do business with who they like and who they know? MozTrust scoring works off of the same concept and is important in today's SEO (adhering to the latest algorithims).

Technology companies ranked in the GeekWire 200 can move closer to first place by increasing their popularity on various social networking sites, including LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook. Companies are also evaluated on the number of external links to their website, and their respective MozTrust score which examines the authenticity and trustworthiness of these links.
