Abstract:


One of the serious problems and challenges in the Internet is the Web authoring and credibility. With the continuous expansion on Internet services especially when it is used to communication important sensitive information, there is a need to verify the Webpage content and authors. In this paper, we evaluate the elements required to evaluate Websites and pages credibility based on Website, Web pages, and authors credibility metrics. A case study of selected websites in Jordan is used to assess the proposed credibility metrics. Results showed that there are many metrics to measure a trust in Website or a Webpage. Results also showed the need to have a clear standard to evaluate Website content authenticity and credibility.
