  3. Does the site tell you how to contact the author?
  4. Does the site have any official approval?
  1. Are there any errors on the page?
  2. Does the author give their information sources?
  3. Is the page well organized and complete? (Not "under construction")
  4. Is the topic fully covered?
  1. Does this person/group have something to gain by making you believe one way about an issue?
  2. Is this person/group trying to sell you something?
