The ranking also listed universities in South Africa as the top 10 on the list. Other universities from Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, Ghana, Morocco and even Sudan lead the six Nigerian universities that made the lost.
The six Nigerian Universities that appear in the top 100 are the University of Ibadan at 32nd position, University of Ilorin 34th, University of Benin 40th, Obafemi Awolowo University Ife 44th, Ahmadu Bello University Zaria 62nd and University of Jos 70th position.

4International Colleges and Universities is an international higher education search engine and directory reviewing accredited colleges and universities around the world.
The aim of the website is to provide an approximate popularity ranking of world universities and colleges based upon the popularity of their websites.
It is intended to help international students and academic staff to understand how popular a specific University/College is in a foreign country.
