What features does a web site need to offer in order for you to trust the information?

    An About Us section helps. Or Credits or something like that.

    Places like Wikipedia are great but ANYONE can edit the information there. So if I'm looking for a reliable source it has to be written by one person with a byline and not edited by some random person.

    Here is an excellent webpage from Southern Oregon University explaining how to evaluate websites for reliable information, especially for academic purposes.

    If you are infering that Wiki is unreliable, you are in for a surprise. Wiki has a very sound editorial process, which has proven to be no less reliable than the most respeced Encyclopedias. Somehow, this has gotten lost in the popular educational press.
