What Kind of Ranking Is Released by 4ICU?

The current uniRank University Ranking™ is based upon an algorithm including 5 unbiased and independent web metrics extracted from 4 different web intelligence sources:

  1. Moz Domain Authority
  2. Alexa Global Rank
  3. SimilarWeb Global Rank
  4. Majestic Referring Domains
  5. Majestic Trust Flow

The web-based non-academic University ranking has been published since May 2005. So, this is not related to the quality of teaching delivered in the school. This is about rankings of Universities based on website metrics.

Therefore, when we say “Top 100 Universities in Nigeria”, we do not mean the best Universities in Nigeria.
