The key purpose of this ranking is to encourage universities to participate more actively in the web space. Cybermetrics Lab publishes annually two versions of this ranking in July and September. The ranking identifies each university based on its website address in Google Scholar and scans its top 10 public profiles.

Then the citations are counted and the universities are ranked based on the number of citations. If there are several entries for the same author, only the best profile is used.
