Being able to evaluate public websites is a crucial skill. Always check for the following:

Who created the website?
What authority do the creators have regarding the topic of the website?
What is the copyright date for the site?
When was it last updated?
Does it have an agenda? (is it trying to sell you something? are the creators biased, and if so, in what direction)?
