There are 31 000 world universities ranked, and in the ranking methodology process analysis is made in three categories, as follows: University visibility, presence and the global academic performance. Harvard University and Standford University from the USA, followed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), are traditionally ranked the first place on the Webometrics World Ranking.
