Get REAL!
Is a website reliable?
R...Read the URL.  .com, .net, .biz, .name, .pro, .info. may be commercial, selling you something.
E...Examine the content.  Errors in spelling?  Lots of !!!!!!!!! ?  Not professional.
A...Ask about the author.  Can you find the author's or organization's name?  Shouldn't hide.
L...Look at the links. Shopping ads, requests for contributions, pop-ups?  Don't be tempted.
 
The R...E...A...L strategy helps you identify warning signs about unreliability.
