A great deal of information is available on the Web. Anyone can post a Website, so unfortunately as much unreliable information as reliable is found.

How Can I tell if Internet Information is Reliable?
  1. Who wrote what you're reading? The site should contain the name of a real person.
  2. Where does that person work? A university? A Web business? A product manufacturer? Can you easily find that information on the site?
  3. Was the information created for the site? If not, is there clear attribution showing where the information originated?
  4. Who owns the site, and who pays for it? The source of money and ownership should be clearly identified.
  5. Can you tell when the article itself was posted, whether it has been updated and when?
