Two CEO from the domain name industry space have been named by Klout.com/Reuters as one of the top 50 “Most Influential Execs on the Web”
Richard Rosenblatt, the CEO of Demand Media, Inc. is listed as number 34 on the list with a Klout Score of 56.
Bob Parsons, the Executive Chairman of Godaddy.com is listed as number 40 on the list with a Klout Score of 53. (It should be noted that Klout incorrectly still has Parsons listed as the CEO of Godaddy).
Both Richard and Bob’s Klout score are higher as that of the CEO of Group On, LinkedIn and Zynga.
Also making the top 50 list is Esther Dyson one of the most vocal opponents of the new gTLD program who made the list at number 46 as the CEO of EDventure Holdings.
It took a Klout score 51 to make the Top 50 list.
The number one spot went to Pete Cashmore the founder and CEO of Mashable with a Klout score of 89.
Oprah, Rupert Murdock, Richard Branson, Mark Cuban, Steve Forbes, Michael Dell all made the list.
Mark Zukerberg of Facebook did not.
In the spirit of full disclosure, and for the record I have a Klout score of 47.
