Dilemmas and Solutions
It is easy to find thousands, if not millions, of websites geared to your topic.
The challenge is to find RELEVANT, CREDIBLE websites.
- The trick is to know who is responsible for the content information on the site.
- If you cannot find a name or agency responsible, don't use the site. (SEE Evaluation of Websites - left column)
- Check for dates. Some pages are put up and never revised. In the health areas you need to know the must up-to-date information.
- Check for dates. Some pages may be quite new and go away very quickly. Make a copy of the first page of your website.
- Use .gov, .edu or .org sites when possible. You can limit a Google search to those types of sites.
