2018. Ranking Web of Universities. January New Edition (27764 Universities)

The July edition (2018.1.0) is built with the indicators obtained during this month in order to maintain the freshness of the data of the most current and updated Ranking of Universities.

Published figures are RANKS (lower is better), intended for showing individual performances, but they are not the values used in the calculations. Due to technical issues several key changes (marked in red) have been done, so the following table describes the current methodology:

 PRESENCE  Size (number of pages) of the main webdomain of the institution. It includes all the subdomains
  sharing the webdomain and all the file types including rich files like pdf documents
