For reference

The International Webometrics rating has been carried out since 2004. It is made by Cybermetrics Lab included in Centro de Información y Documentación of the Spanish National Research Council. The rating assessing the representation of universities in the Internet is published twice a year. The criteria for the university sites analysis are, in particular, the number of external links, index-pages and citation index. Nonetheless, the rating compilers do not evaluate the site design and do not take into account its attendance.
