The uniRank University Ranking (https://www.4icu.org), known as the 4ICU, positions itself as a non-academic rating that examines the quality of presentation and popularity of higher education institutions on the Internet, based on independent web metrics collected from reputable sources (Moz, Majestic, SimilarWeb and Amazon Alexa). The authors of the ranking note that this approach helps students, teaching and research staff evaluate the overall popularity of the university.
