In a bid to encourage the optimal use of web technologies as a means of bringing the University closer to achieving its vision, the Computer Resource Centre (CRC) has come up with a web ranking methodology with which the various units and departments of the University would be ranked based on their contribution to the visibility and relevance of the University on the World Wide Web (WWW).
Three indicators have been identified for use in ranking the various subsections of the University website. These indicators are Search Engine Saturation and Backlinks.
In order to measure these identified indicators, the CRC has identified a number of automated tools that can calculate the number of times a section of the website has been indexed by Google and Microsoft Bing, the two major search engines in the world at the moment. Also, the CRC has been able to put up systems to automatically count the number of rich files, as well as the number of backlinks on each domain. The cumulative score from all these indicators is then used to rank each subdomain.
