There are always people looking to change companies, join a new company, or wanting to see how they rank among the top MLM companies (if they are even on the list). But, before I begin, let me tell you this:
This is a NO RECRUITING ZONE!!!
What that means is that you are not going to be pitched at the end about some other company or business that we think is best. This may truly be the only “neutral” top MLM company list. Also, to be clear, we use the term MLM to refer to any company that would also be considered multi-level marketing, network marketing, affiliate marketing, home-based business, or business opportunity.
The following criteria were used in determining the top 20 MLM companies: popularity, years in business, internet popularity, Google page rank, Alexa rank, and following Google trends (although this is not a strong factor). And, as a unique twist, we also take into consideration the companies that interact with our site as well as monitor 5 other sites that talk about mlm companies to know what is happening in their companies news and how others rank sites… kind of our own personal ranking algorythm.
These are the Best MLM Companies! We are working on reviews of each of these companies. Those with reviews are shown in bold below with a link to their review. More reviews are coming. All of the links for the company names below are to the company websites. They are not affiliate links.

One of the other standards that we imposed on this list is that company must be at least 5 years old, and 10 years old would be better. As we indicate throughout this site, we highly discourage the involvement in any company less than 5 years old due to the fact that 95% of all MLM companies do not make it to their 5th birthday. Therefore, if a company is over 5 years old, you can count on that company being around a while.
We could have easily expanded this list to the top 25 companies. There are other great companies such as Young Living, Monavie, Sentsy, Send Out Cards, etc. But, for now, these are the top 20.
A Quickee Overview Guide To This List
First of all, you will notice that of these 20 companies:
- 12 companies are nutritional companies
- 8 companies are beauty product companies
- 4 companies are household product companies
- 1 company is a legal services company
- 1 company is a telecommunications company
- 1 company is a jewelry company
Of these companies many of them have secondary lines of products that bridge the gaps (i.e. a health and beauty products company)
Regarding the Google Pagerank of a company. You will see that these companies range from a pagerank of 3 to 6. One reason that a company may have a lower pagerank (i.e. Xango) is that they have multiple websites and domains that customers go to. Many of them never use the primary site, and therefore the ranking is lower. This is just a factor, and can be somewhat subjective since there are many other factors than how Google ranks a web page.
Regarding the Alexa ranking, this generally refers to how much traffic a site is pulling in, competing with ALL websites out there, or all kinds. A ranking under 100,000 is very good, and Avon’s ranking of 3,500 is fantastic.
Not every business opportunity company is for everyone. Look around and see which one is best for you. All of the links above are links straight to the company websites. There are no affiliate links or associate links involved – so you can invesitigate things on your own when you are looking for an MLM company to join.
