Website is the mirror of an organization or institution. This webometrics study is performed on the government tourism websites in India. The present paper highlights the global SEO ranking with various scores and popularity ranking of the tourism websites in India. Traffic score, speed score, page size and load time of the websites have been reflected in this study to reveal the quality of the websites. Collecting data using SocSciBot 4 web crawler and designing a network topology using Pajek network design software have added much to its panoramic visualization.
