(A) Ask yourself what opinions or ideas are missing
(B) Consider who published the information
(C) How professional the website looks
(D) Look at the domain extension for the site
Some essential points to consider when evaluating the validity of a website are:
- You should consider who published the information on the website and does this person has valid credentials to write about a specific topic.
- You should ask yourself what opinions or ideas are missing so that you understand what the piece of content is lacking.
- Finally, you should look at the domain extension for the site. A site with a .gov domain extension is more likely to have accurate information than a .com extension.
