Top 100 highest ranking websites in eLearning, training and development

Top 100 highest ranking websites in eLearning, training and developmentThe eLearning, training and development industry's hot list of best performing websites just got better!
Two weeks ago we became the first marketers in the business to create an industry focused top 40.  Now we've gone one step further to create the Top 100 hot list of high rankers online (actually that's 60 steps further isn't it?)
Huge thanks to everyone who commented on and assisted in the project's development: You helped us spot the odd omission and highlight occasional anomalies. Also: respect to all of those who took on some of our one-on-one hints and tips to boost their ranking in just two weeks.  Good job!
As you'd imagine after a project like this, we're currently pretty stoked with data. The Top 100 crunches together individual rankings from Google PageRank, Moz Rank, Alexa, Hubspot's Web grader and Compete. Rankings from link based measurement tools like Moz or Google PageRank have been given more weight than tools like Compete or Alexa, which use smaller samples. We've also considered the number of pages that a website has indexed in Google, blogs, social reach and the number of domains linking-in to each website. All ranking tools have strengths and weaknesses (don't even get us started on that one), but together they paint an interesting and valuable picture we think.
But creating the eLearning, training and development industry's first Hot 100 is just the beginning really.  Our next objective is to study what's really working well for the companies at the top end of the chart.  It's not enough to state the obvious: Everyone knows that good relevant content delivered over an optimised web platform = a lead nurturing website that converts visitors into customers. What's really interesting is to understand how the rules of great relevance marketing apply to the eLearning, training and development sector in particular.
In the downloads and briefing documents we produce next: we'll be revealing the most common weaknesses in the websites that don't make our Top 100 chart (and some of them are pretty easy to fix); we'll be looking at how companies in the Top 100 can become fast movers; and we'll be pinpointing some of the tips and trick that the industry's best performers rely on to keep on top of the table. If you're not a regular subscriber to our news output then maybe it's time to sign up or join us on on our shiny new Linkedin or Facebook groups

Who's on the chart?
We've tried hard to make this a list of commercial organisations (i.e.: Skillsoft, Brightwave, Kineo, Edvantage, Taleo, etc), rather than “objective and authoritative” industry watchers or bodies (like IITT, CMI,eLearning Guild or ASTD). Informers like eLeaningAge or Personnel Today are also excluded.
A site like PersonnelToday.com has relevance in the sector, but it's in the business of informing communities about learning rather than selling learning services. If we included it, it would be in the Top 10, between Skillsoft and Epic, for anyone interested.  Sites like TowardsMaturity.org (which would rank between Happy and C.B.Learning) or the Chartered Managers Institute (which would rank at 11) are omitted for similar reasons (Should we do this or not? We're keen to hear.)
