How to Check for Website Credibility
- Author – Information on the internet with a listed author is one indication of a credible site. The fact that the author is willing to stand behind the information presented (and in some cases, include his or her contact information) is a good indicator of reliability.
- Date – The date of any research information is important, including information found on the Internet. By including a date, the website allows readers to make decisions about whether that information is recent enough for their purposes.
- Sources – Credible websites, like books and scholarly articles, should cite the source of the information presented.
- Domain – Some domains such as .com, .org, and .net can be purchased and used by any individual. However, the domain .edu is reserved for colleges and universities, while .gov denotes a government website. These two are usually credible sources .
- Site Design – This can be very subjective, but a well-designed site can be an indication of more reliable information.
- Writing Style – Poor spelling and grammar are an indication that the site may not be credible.
