Abstract: In the late 1990s, some institutions started discussing the idea of comparing universities and educational institutions according to certain criteria. Since then, the rankings of universities have become widespread. With the rapid spread, extended and developed scientific progress and technological development every day as we have not seen before, and with the increasing spread of the Internet, these sites have become dependent on the Internet to obtain the data they rely on in the ranking of these universities. Because the ranking of universities, educational institutions, higher education institutions, colleges, and institutes is one of the main elements that have been used in the past two centuries, and because the ranking of universities has become one of the most important ways and means to measure the development or decline of universities, it was important to clarify the mechanisms of the ranking of universities in This period of the twenty-first century and the expected perception for tanking of university for the future period. The aim of this research paper is to present a study on the methods and methodologies that can be used to measure the ranking of universities, taking into account the technological development that has taken place over the past period and to determine what is the possibility of relying on the ranking in the future as a tool to measure the progress and development of universities and the possibility of relying on the Internet as a reliable means of ranking. Observations regarding the educational institutions’ perception of ranking are also discussed.
