Ask yourself these questions:

  • When was the website and its content last updated?
    • The dates are usually at the bottom of a web page, along with any copyright information.
    • Depending on your research, you may not want to use website content that hasn't been updated recently. This will especially true with topics dealing with science and current events
    • If you're using a website with content written by different people, there may be different dates. A date for the website as a whole, and a date when the individual article/post was written.
  • DO NOT use statistics if there is no date associated with them.
