I’d like to create indexes of the Best Ranked Programs, but I’m not sure of what makes sense and how it looks. I’d like to try something like the following and see if it makes sense when presented. Your thoughts and feedback about what makes the most sense for both colleges and student is greatly appreciated.
We have a lot of data and we can over do it when it comes to presentation, and considering that half of users usually come via mobile, it becomes important to think through the presentation. Anyway. Here is what I’m thinking. There would be 100 new pages or so new pages all dedicated to pretty much ranking.
Mapping Contacts for Outreach
Once we find a list of all the program rankings, we’re going to want to find the following information. Perhaps Dipal can help. If there is an semi-automated way to this I am also open. For much of this information, we can use it for different sites.
We will be sending out emails to the contacts. Again, maybe something you and/or Dipal can help with. I have a couple of sites that’ll send out this kind of email.

Top 100 in each, one page for each. For Ph.d and PsyD and Certificates, we might want to list the top 50, depending on how many programs are offered in total. For Ph.D and PsyD, let’s try to separate them to start.
- Certificates – Do we have post bachelor’s and post master’s or just?
- Ph.D – separate?
- PsyD – separate?
- Ph.d and PsyD together?
We want to list state, state ranking, and national ranking – add the columns the ranking factors. Let’s try a table to start:
For the Bachelor’s Page, we’d want to see it like this at first. And new pages for each of the other Degree. Put as many ranking factors as we have, please.
|Bachelor’s||Ranking Factor||Ranking Factor||Ranking Factor||Ranking Factor||Ranking Factor|
One page for each program type. Top programs as defined by.
- Programs that have between 20 and 49, we list the top 10
- Programs that have more than 50 and less than 75, we list the top 25 programs
- programs that have more than 75, we list the top 50 programs
We want to list state, state ranking, and national ranking.
For each program page we’d want to do something similar like this. Put as many ranking factor columns as we have.
|Applied Psychology||Ranking Factor||Ranking Factor||Ranking Factor||Ranking Factor||Ranking Factor|
Ranking Page and Criteria Help
Manish – For our ranking methodology page: https://psychologyonlinedegrees.org/resources/ranking-methodology-for-psychology-online-degrees/:
- Please double check the table to make sure it is still the same criteria we’ve used so far.
- Please list the criteria that causes schools or programs not to be included. You can list the criteria in bullet points or describe them, if you so desire.
We already list the top 10 https://psychologyonlinedegrees.org/programs/california/ and then at the bottom of the page list the schools > than 10.
We do not list the program rankings for schools in each state. So I’m trying to think this through.
If we create a separate ranking page:
One page for each state. Top programs as defined by:
- A state that has less than 10 schools, list all the schools
- A state that has more than 20 schools, list the top 10 schools
- A state that has more than 50 schools, list the top 25 schools
We want to list the state and national ranking
Programs offered within the State:
On the same page, but as a separate section, list the top programs offered by each state listing both state and national ranking.
List the Program in H2 and then list the top schools for each program. How many schools? Not sure. Top five, top ten. Let’s play with this number.
On State Pages:
Change the Header as these rankings are School not Program:
