Evaluating Web Sites
- CRAAP Test (for web pages)
- Additional Website Evaluation Criteria - How to assess Web information according to authority, purpose, audience, accuracy & other criteria.
- To see who owns a domain, go to www.networksolutions.com/en_US/whois/index.jhtml or allwhois.com and type in the domain name (e.g. greeningearthsociety.com)
- To see what others think of the site (what pages link to this site), try a link search on google.com Type link:thedomainofthesite in the search box (that is, type the word link, followed by
a colon, then no space, then the domain of the site you want to evaluate, for example link:greeningearthsociety.org).
