English abstract

The use and impact of web resources and services provided by universities can be measured through various web indicators – especially their size, visibility and usage – and have been used to design web ranking of universities, among which the Ranking Web of Universities stands out for its quality and coverage. These rankings allow the quantification of all university missions as long as these activities are reflected on the university's website, which requires the application of an appropriate web policy.
