Use the CRAAP test!

CURRENCY -  When was it created? Has it been updated? Is the information current and reliable?

RELEVANCY - Does it address your question? Does it have in-depth coverage of the topic?

AUTHORITY - Who is the author? Who is the publisher? Are they reputable?

ACCURACY - Are there multiple typos? Did they cite their sources? Is the language inflammatory?

PURPOSE - Is this fact or opinion? Why does this source exist? Is the author pushing an agenda or trying to sell you something?
