      • Who is responsible for the page (publisher)?
      • Is it a personal page?

Purpose

      • What is the author's point of view?
      • Is there a statement of purpose or philosophy?
      • Selling? Promoting? Venting?
      • Sponsored?
      • Where do related links lead to?
      • What is implied but not said?

      • What topics are covered?
      • How in-depth is the material?

Currency
