Buzz scores are measured by a calculative method to find out people’s positive or negative perception towards any brand.

Netflix, which had entered YouGov’s Buzz Ranking in 2016, topped the list with a score of 21.4 in 2019. The supermarket company Aldi has lost the top rank for the first time since 2013. Despite Aldi scoring 19.8 on Buzz Ranking, the +5.0 increase in Netflix’s score moved the supermarket chain to the second place.

Northern Rail topped the list of Buzz Improvers with an improvement score of +8.0 in 2019 from -5.5 in 2018. Similarly, Maplin went from a score of -6.6 to -0.8 after its 2019 relaunch.
