How To Find Credible Sources To Quote And Link To
I think it's a good idea to back up what you say on your sites with proof. Things like research or studies that have been done from credible sources. Especially if it is a controversial topic. Whether you are quoting or linking to such a source it can help you to sale someone on something If you can convince them that what you're saying is valid. Of course it isn't necessary for every topic, but some topics people aren't so educated on.
But, sometimes I have a hard time finding credible sources on the web that back up what I'm saying even when I know that I am right. When you read numerous books on a subject, where exactly you got your info can become a blur after a while. And I don't want to just quote from or link to just anybody's site. It think it helps when it comes from more respected sources like Institutes, experts, research, studies, etc.
Anyone have any tips for how to find credible sources on the web on your topic to support your position? The only thing I know to do is search a phrase in quotes, but that often doesn't bring back any useful results.
