Higher Education Homepages
For years I've performed performance analysis on a list of independently curated highered responsive websites. I've recently wanted to expand that list to include many more highered homepages.
Creating the list
Started with 1,930 urls from Search Engines Marketer's List of University and College Websites (thanks @SEOMInteractive!).
- Normalized urls (add https, www, etc. where applicable)
- Removed 61 dead urls
- Removed 12 with messages they were shutting down (going out of business)
- Removed 4
- Removed 82 non-qualifying urls (see Requirements below)
- Added 83 from my RWD list that were missing from SEM's list
- Subsequent additions and removals
First and foremost, it's possible that not every url in this list meets these criteria. It was a lot of sites to comb through, and I'm sure I missed some.
- Must be an accredited, degree granting higher education institution.
- Must be the front-most url for a university, college, or campus. This excludes mobile versions, but may include campuses that fall under a larger umbrella.
- Cannot be a school or medical facility that exists under a parent university (that includes business schools, law schools, etc.).
- Must not be a specialty school such as chiropractic or cosmetology.
Requirements are subject to change and are up for debate.
If you find a url that should be added or removed from the list, send a pull request or contact me.
