to judge quality of web sites

The Internet has dramatically increased
the amount of financial information available to consumers. But
it can be a challenge to decide which sites are trustworthy.
One way is to check out the URL, the web address. This
tells you who has created the site. URLs that end in (dot)e-d-u
are educational. (dot)o-r-g for organizations. (dot)g-o-v
are government sites. (dot)c-o-m are commercial sites.
Non-commercial sites are probably your best bet for reliable
information from sources that aren’t trying to sell you
a product or service.
So watch for sites that end in (dot)e-d-u, (dot)o-r-g, or (dot)gov.
