Credible Website?

How can you tell if a website is credible? First you should look at the url address at the top. There is four common ones that you might see.

Good URL

".org" ~ This website was made by an organization.

".gov" ~ This is a government issued website.

".edu" ~ This is an educational website.

If a website has the URL ".com" then remember, anybody can make a website so it might not be reliable.

If the website includes anything about the author, their contact information, or the date it was published, then the website is reliable.
