Alongside the country’s major universities, South Ural State University has entered the new rankings system UniRank TwitterUniversity Rankings 2018-Russia.
The international UniRank ranking evaluates the online popularity of the world’s universities and uses independent statistical data as a base. A special algorithm based on independent indicators carefully processed and selected from popular web sources is used to evaluate standing within the rankings system. In the selection process, the most important indicators are taken into account which determine the level of a web-site’s traffic, number of active links, and flow metrics indices. The number of unique visitors and site views from mobile and PC users is also taken into account.
It should be noted that the UniRank rankings reflect a university’s activity in social networks in terms of the number of subscribers to the university’s home page. Currently SUSU is listed in such UniRank rankings as:
UniRank Twitter 2018;
UniRank Facebook 2018.
The main grounds for calculating a university’s standing is the number of subscribers at the university’s home page on Twitter.
“In our opinion, SUSU’s entering this rankings is a very important indicator of the active interaction of the university with students in social networking,” notes Lyudmila Lapina, Head of the Rankings Promotion Department of the SUSU International Affairs Division.
