A buck doesn't go far nowadays, but $30 billion, Larry Page's estimated worth, is enough to land you in the No. 19 spot on Bloomberg's list of the world's wealthiest. In its 2013 fiscal year, the Mountain View, California-based search giant had a total return of 58 percent, compared with 13 percent for the S&P 500 index.

Page clearly earned every penny.

See the data visualization of this ranking and other Bloomberg Best (and Worst) lists.

Methodology: Bloomberg ranked CEOs of 90 U.S. technology companies based on their total compensation for the last fiscal year and identified the 10 CEOs with the lowest pay. Included are S&P technology companies as well as all other U.S. technology and Internet companies with market capitalizations of at least $5 billion as of May 7, 2014. Excluded were CEOs of companies that went public during 2013 and those who were not CEOs for all of 2013.
