    In Asia, Shanghai Jiao Tong University topped the League Table of the top 200 Universities. The Fudan University, previous year's no. 1, came on fourth place. Peking University, Tsinghua University and Zhejiang University on 2nd, 3rd and 5th spots, respectively.

    Meanwhile, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University and Stanford University in the United States dominated anew this year's global ranking.

    According to their website, the uniRank University Ranking aim is to provide a non-academic League Table of Universities based on unbiased and valid web metrics rather than data submitted by the Universities themselves: Moz Domain Authority, Alexa Global Rank, SimilarWeb Global Rank, Majestic Referring Domains and Majestic Trust Flow.

    This is especially intended to help international students and academic staff to understand how popular a specific University or College is in a foreign country.

    Unirank's web-based, non-academic University ranking has been published since May 2005. Since its inception, the "ranking methodology has been periodically fine-tuned in order to provide better results."
