‘Findings related to Web-use skills differences suggest two classes of interventions to facilitate access to good-quality online health information.
Challenges related to attitudes and technical skills should be remedied by improving people’s basic Web-use skills. In particular, Web users should be taught how to avoid information overload by generating specific search terms and to avoid low-quality information by requesting results from trusted websites only.
Problems related to discovery may be remedied by visually labeling search engine results according to quality criteria.’
