ABSTRACT
This paper analyzes the size, visibility,brightness, the average density of links andweb impact factor of the federal publicuniversities in the North and Midwest in orderto investigate the presence of these institutionsin the network. It shows that, withtechnological advances, webometrics hasbecome a product for innovation, bringingpossibilities to study the interconnections inthe virtual space, thus enabling the expansionof the existing correlations in thisenvironment. The methodology for thedevelopment of the research was a literaturereview about webometrics and a case study ofthe websites of the federal public universitiesin the North and Midwest. The results show avery low number of interconnections in the tworegions, according to the indicators of visibilityand brightness. The study demonstrates thatthere is room for a greater connectivitybetween such institutions in order to increasecommunication between them on the web.
