Semantic web is based on knowledge representation which contains a large number of ontologies. Nowadays the increasing demand for ontology has triggered a growing number of usable ontology in web. Similar to the web page searching, ontology searching results are to be ranked. The ranking method increases the scope of the knowledge searching in ontology-driven searches. This paper gives an overview of different types of ranking algorithm their methodology and the constraint. It is used to help the researchers to select the most suitable algorithm for their application based on the efficiency.
