Here are some ways you can determine whether or not a site is reliable:
-If the domain is .org .net .edu or .gov then the website is trustworthy .com is not always the correct so when looking at these sites you need to be skeptical.
-Have you found the same information somewhere else? If so then it is most likely true.
-Are there any credentials listed?
-Is there anything that implies they are marketing something for readers to buy?
One thing I learned from this activity is even if a website looks trustworthy you have to double check. When looking at websites you need to investigate the small details of the website.
