When doing research on the web it is really important to evaluate the source. There are many different methods of deciding if a source is credible, an easy evaluation phrase to remember is The CRAAP Test:
timeliness of the information
importance of the information for your needs
source of the information
reliability, truthfulness, and correctness of the content
reason the information exists
NOTE: It's not always this simple. Ask about Lateral Reading.
