The 9 Most Influential Women In Tech, Ranked By PeekYou

On April 3, we posted a slideshow of the top 11 most influential young leaders in tech, according to PeekYou, a search engine that ranks people based on their influence around the web and on social sites like Facebook and Twitter.

A few of you pointed out in the comments that this list of young tech stars was lacking in women, so the PeekYou team decided to pull together a list of the most influential women in tech.

The powerful and talented women who make up the list below have been ranked based on their PeekScores, which range from 1 to 10 (the higher one's score, the "more important" one is on the web). According to PeekYou, one's PeekScore "takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news."

Flip through the slideshow below to view the tech world's most influential females online, from powerful companies like Facebook, HP, IBM, Google and more. Then, check out our list of 10 up-and-coming female tech CEOs to watch out for, as well as 27 female tech founders to follow on Twitter.
