21250 HEIs ranked in January 2013!

        Welcome to the Ranking Web of Universities, also known as Webometrics Ranking (17th edition). The new edition has been published on the 7th of February based on data collected during the first days of January. It provides the largest and most updated directory and ranking of higher education institutions (now over 21000!) in the world.

        As usual we have revised the list, adding a few alternative names in other languages, tuned again the methodology for avoiding cheating practices and better reflecting overall performance and finally corrected the unavoidable mistakes. Please, as usual we advise to check the changes in the methodology and the motivations, issues that should be taken into account for your future academic and web strategies.
