When using the Web for research, it is important to evaluate what you find, because no one curates or rates it. There are different methods of deciding if a source is credible, but an easy-to-remember evaluation acronym to use is CRAAP:
timeliness of the information
importance of the information for your needs
source of the information
reliability and correctness of the content
the reason for it or why the information exists
