It has been claimed that computers and internets become parts of life. Some people consider computers to be their best friends. However, either the young or grown-ups accessing computer and internet don’t know how accurate of the information they are looking up.

      Generally, every time you get online, you easily use the right tools and look in the right places. Nevertheless, the disadvantage of online information research is that a lot of data are not accurate and untrustworthy. Why? Some writers easily post their ideas or they  just want to sell their products, that’s why this information is not necessarily educate or teach you but convince you to buy their products.

To properly research online, here are some suggestions to find unbiased information on the Internet.

Online research tools must be equipped properly. Basically, we always start with Google once we search some information. For instance, you search about how to pass the CCNA exam. The search engine really helps finding the data easily and quickly. But if you're trying to find specialty or niche topic, use specialized library or portal. These usually retrieve certain information that can’t be found by the general search engines.

The search result is not necessarily dependent on the rank pages. Actually, it is indeed misleading that every time we search, we usually think that the first page contains the most important data we need. Browse the other pages. Get rid of the notion that the top ranking pages are the best. For example, you want to search the different IT certifications such as MCSE, PMP, CCIE, CCNP, MCSA, MCP and others. Turn to other pages as much as possible.

Be keen on manufacturer web sites.  The domain name of the website is very important. Most web sites are created for their personal interest and purposes. They intend to sell their products. So what you read is exactly bias. To be sure, it is appropriate to read blogs and forums of the website then compare it to other sources.

Post your questions in forums if necessary. It’s also a good idea to post your questions in well-populated message board forums. This may be at lease unbiased.

Find the most common searches. It is also best for you to review the information. Compare to the common trends, facts, and so on

Listen to the opinions of those who are in a similar situation as you. It is also important to refer it to another person especially if both of you have the same needs. Majority judgment doest not justify the accuracy of information needed.
