It analyzes the disposal of the writings and the images, the index, the main postagens, the amount of access and the time where it is in air. If it never forgets that sites or blogs can leave air quite frequently, from there the importance to see the time where it is in air. will be to cite it in academic work, is interesting to place the date in which they had been had access. Made this, it looks for to know manages who it and who writes.
It notices that, to the times, a site or blog has some authors and each one signs its postagem.

They give attention if it deals with an opinion article or another type of text. A scientific article, a clarifying text, a book summary, a chronicle, etc. In the case of not being an opinion article, look for to notice in the references that they had been used, where and where (or in who) the person if based to defend an idea or to write on some thing. This is essential. The person has that to be very qualified to write without if basing on nothing. She analyzes and she does not confuse, to use a reference is not to copy. A reference, a source, a bibliography is necessary to the research processes. Test that such person read certain workmanships and produced its writings. The last stage is to consult other sites, blogs and until looking for, if possible, in written sources. This procedure is essential not to be doubts on if what it was consulted is viable to be used in research or not. Made everything this, does not have problem none in enjoying of the Internet to carry through research or to extend the knowledge.
