Finding Online Sources That Are Credible

Let’s be clear. There are plenty of people who don’t even know where the library is these days. There are a number of people who have decided that they will look for all their content online. This is fine when you consider that the Internet is the best resource for instant information about the majority of topics. However, when looking for something legitimate you must be clear about the resources you are getting online. There is just as much potential that you are going to get great information as much as there are going to be the odds that you are going to get wrong information. So here are some tips to keep in mind when it comes to your own research and making sure that the info you are getting is correct.

Double Check

When you hear something from a friend you don’t just take their word for it. You always check with another source. When you are going out online for your information and you find an answer to your question, do your research and see if you can find a second source to back it up. Once you find two or more sources that back it up, you can then count on it as credible. Don’t put anything in your research that you have only heard one time.

Have You Heard Of The Website?

A lot of people do a search engine, pick the top search and go from there. But do you even know the site you are going on? While you might be trusting of the search engine, that doesn’t mean that you are going to a site that has the right information. It’s simple to look at the search engine and the web address. If you have never heard of the site before than you need to start looking elsewhere for you content. You have to be sure that your facts are credible.

How to Unblock a Website

If you work on a computer then you know how tempting it is to surf the Internet, update your Facebook or play games online when you are supposed to be working. That is why many schools and businesses have started to block websites that are not deemed necessary for work or school. It is believed that by blocking these websites employees and students will work harder and longer.

If you have run into a blocked website on your school or business network, there is a way you can remove the block on it and visit it throughout the day. Here’s a look at how to remove that block.

Find an Unblocking Website

There are websites that can remove the administration’s block on a website. Websites like thunderunblock and rocketunblock can both help you unblock the website you wish to visit.

Enter Website Information

Once you have pulled up the unblocking website you will need to enter the website you wish to unblock’s information. Place the URL in the unblocking website and select “unblock me”. This will remove the administration’s block on the website.

Think Before You Unblock

Unblocking a website is not illegal but you should think about what might happen should you unblock the website. Many companies and schools track your Internet usage and will know that you used an unblocking website. Use of an unblocking website could result in expulsion or termination of your job.

Using these steps will help you overcome those pesky administration blocks schools and businesses place on their computer.
