Anyone can create a page on any topic, regardless of their qualifications.
Authors can remain anonymous. Look primarily for websites ending in .edu, or .gov.

A proven non-profit organization can get a .org domain, and are more reliable than .com domains.
Researchers beware of the bias found in .org domains! How recent is the information?
How recently has the website been updated?
Is it current enough for your topic? Who is the creator or author?
What are their credentials?
Who is the publisher or sponsor?
Are they reputable?
What is the publisher's interest (if any) in this information?
Are there advertisements on the website? What kind of information is included in the resource?
Is the content of the resource primarily opinion? Is the opinion balanced?
Does the creator provide references or resources for data or quotations? C - Currency
A - Authority
R - Reliability
P - Purpose/Point of View Purpose/Point of View Is this fact or opinion?
