Types Of Webpages

 

The World Wide Web is an extraordinarily rich source of information. Sifting through documents retrieved from the vastness of cyberspace, however, can be a daunting task. It is not unusual to find a mixture of invalid, authoritative, biased, or objective information among your search results. Savvy searchers have learned to identify web page "types" and to apply evaluation criteria to help them find high quality information that supports their research topic.
