Not different with 4ICU ranking, in 2012 UNS is on 7th position in Indonesia or on 1186th in the world evaluated by Webometrics. Webometrics is web ranking of higher education in the world according to :

  • Size (S). Number of pages recovered from four engines: Google, Yahoo, and Bing Search.
  • Visibility (V). The total number of unique external links received (inlinks) by a site, according to Yahoo Site Explorer.
  • Rich Files (R). After evaluation of their relevance to academic and publication activities and considering the volume of the different file formats, the following were selected: Adobe Acrobat (.pdf), Adobe PostScript (.ps), Microsoft Word (.doc) and Microsoft Powerpoint (.ppt). These data were extracted using Google, Yahoo and Bing.
  • Scholar (Sc). The data is a combination of items published between 2006 and 2010 included in Google Scholar and the global output (2004.-2008) obteined from Scimago SIR.

The other universities that is above position than UNS are, indeed, well-known as better university than UNS, such as UGM, ITB, UI, ITS, IPB, and UPI. Based on the composition, I am sure that two years later the UNS position can increase,  defeating ITS, IPB, and UPI, at least. It is not mission impossible, because UNS is on better position thanboth of  ITS and IPB in 4ICU. And I think, to be better than UPI is an possible mission!

Once again I say that optimizing official web of university to get good position in world rank is a nice strategy to realize “UNS as world class university”, or at least “UNS as world recognized class university”.   And I am sure, this blog plays a role (although just a little…) to increase the position of UNS in both 4ICU and webometrics.
