Webometrics Ranking of World Universities, or the Ranking Web of World Universities, ranks universities based on their web presence, i.e the weight/authority of their websites as accessed from all over the world. The lists are published by the Cybermetrics Lab, a Spanish research institution. Given that Universities in Uganda are only now beginning to take their web presence seriously these rankings may provide only a tentative guide on an academic scale. On the current rankings Mountains of the Moon University beats older institutions for example, but Makerere University probably deservedly occupies the top spot on the Uganda university rankings. Webometrics currently does not have a full list of Uganda universities and some institutions may not appear on the rankings page.

Webometrics does not set out to provide a list of the top universities in Uganda, or anywhere else for that matter, and the data is meant more as an indicator of relative importance and visibility of a university, especially in research circles. The ranking provides data for over 12,000 universities in the world. The metric measures a university's presence on the internet, its impact, openness and excellence. Currently only 25 Ugandan institutions are listed.By this ranking, as of January 2013, here is the list of top 10 universities in Uganda:
