The content that is uploaded every day to the worldwide web is supplied by many different people with different identities who all have different reasons for their write-ups and choice of topics. It is imperative to conduct a self-evaluation of the content that you produce online to make sure that you are able to provide accurate information, despite the lack of accuracy in many of the questionable authors online.

A website evaluation form can help you properly assess the information that you have provided in your blog or website. You can choose from a wide array of our Evaluation Forms to help you get started.

Evaluating a website generally depends on these six criteria:

1. Authority

With quick-to-access-and-upload content and information online, it is easy to feign knowledge and expertise in a topic. Evaluating the authority of a website helps to unveil the person, the organization, or the agency behind the website in order to determine if they are reliable sources of information. When evaluating a website for authority, the name of the developer should be clearly stated together with their contact details such as their e-mail address, phone number, and fax number. Providing a list of the author’s qualifications and personal background will serve as an icing on top of the cake to prove the legitimacy of the website’s writer.

2. Purpose

Different websites have different purposes. Some sites are meant to inform, persuade, entertain, or to share ideas and opinions. One must assess if the content provided is able to support the site, if the information is relayed in an organized fashion, and if a specific audience is being focused on.

3. Coverage

Checking to see if the site has a comprehensive coverage on a topic or if it settles on just one topic as well as the value of the content of the information being relayed are ways to evaluate a website’s coverage factor.

4. Currency

Currency pertains to how fresh or updated a website is. Dates should be provided so that readers will know if the articles provided are current, if the article was revised, if the links are updated and reliable, and if the information being provided is only good for a limited period of time because it relates to a trend.

5. Objectivity

The content being put up on websites should be objective and free from bias or judgement. The information that is given should not be meant to sway the audience for marketing or advertising purposes and should be aimed at explaining and informing rather than to persuade or to sell something.

6. Accuracy

The final thing that needs to be assessed when evaluating a site is to make sure that the details instilled in the website are accurate and reliable. Thorough research should be conducted in order for the author to provide accurate and factual information. The text should also be able to follow the basic rules of grammar, spelling, and composition in order for it to be credible enough for viewers to appreciate.
