How to Cite a Source
Other things you would need to include would be the name of the article, and the date this article was last dated or published. There are some other things to include with specific documents but these rules would be the basics.
Also, when you are quoting someone, here are some grammatical rules:
-Use "" marks and put your text in between the two of these.
-When you write your quote, you want a comma(,)before and after the quotation marks. However, you don't put the comma before the marks if the quote is the beginning of a sentence.

What's the Difference Between Quoting, Paraphrasing, and Summarizing?
Direct Quote-When you take the exact words of the other person and don't change even the punctuation.
Indirect Quote-When you use the authors words but not their exact words. One thing that you have to remember when putting a indirect quote in your writing is that you have to still use his/her words and modify them but still keep the central ideas and thoughts on the quote.
Next is a paraphrase. This is, in a way, like an indirect quote but you can modify a bit more. This to me is also a bit harder than quoting or summarizing. When you paraphrase, you take the authors word(s) and put them in your own. Although you still have to give credit.
Lastly is summarizing. This is what you have probably been taught since second grade. Summarizing is like it sounds, you sum up the main points of the article and shove them into some sort of short sentences based on how many parts you have to include in your summary.

Is this Website Credible?
-What is the Domain (.com/.edu/.biz/.gov/.org/.net)?
-Is it professional writing? (Grammar, Writing seems authentic)
-Is it a forum where multiple people comment or an article with one author?
-Is it trying to make you think a certain way or is it informational?
That way the search engine that you are using doesn't search for every single word meaning that any website with the word "when" will show up as a result. I'm sure we don't want those 3 million extra results that pop-up on the search page. I assume I am correct?Some excellent sources to search with these key words out of your question are shown below. With these websites, you really can't type any part of the question that is not a key part/word or there will be no search results and you will be left going,"WHY ARE THERE NO SEARCH RESULTS!!!".
