Web Site Credibility

Establish your web page credibility by being an authority source that is objective in text.  Use a broad scope and high quality content. Also design an appealing and unique custom site design with functionality to help your success in your e-business.

The authority of the sites by examination of the whois database, sponsors and who authored the web page content. The author of the sites's sponsor should have the appropriate expertise to present the information authoritatively.

The top-level domain for the country-code TLD is important because some search tools give extra weight to governmental and educational sites.

The highest quality and more authoritative results come from primary sources. A primary source is firsthand information about a particular topic.

Web page information should be fair, the content may contain any subtle or clear biases, or perhaps the information is skewed toward commercial or political interests. Authority sites will use high-quality links to other related sites.

Scope and Quality
