How to tell if a website is good or credible...

There are so many websites to choose from where anyone can become an author/creator and

try to sell you their ideas or products. You can't just believe everything that is out there on

the world wide web....

.com-These sites are usually from commercial businesses. They should not be you 1st choice.

.edu-These sites are educational organizations like universities and colleges. Check the grade

level of the class work on the web page.

.gov-These sites are government websites.

.org-These sites are from non-profit organizations.
