This Is Why We’re Hot
Penn State was ranked #14 in the Webometrics Ranking of World Universities, which is run by the the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas in Spain. We beat a bunch of the Ivies (Columbia, Brown, Dartmouth, and Yale), which is pretty sweet. MIT was ranked #1.
The Big Ten was very well represented on the list. The University of Michigan was ranked #6; the University of Minnesota was ranked #8; the University of Illinois was ranked #9; and the University of Wisconsin was ranked #11.
The rankings were determined by a formula that included the following variables:
- Size– normalized number of pages found by major search engines
- Visibility– number of inlinks recieved
- Rich Files– number of files with extensions like .doc, .ppt, .pdf, .xls, etc
- Scholar– number of papers and citations for each domain
Indeed, Penn State benefits from being a very large public resarch university, but it’s still cool.
