2.1. How to sift through information and assess the results obtained
2.1.4. Relevance and/or last update
An essential level to assess the information found lies in the dates on which the content was created, on which it was published in a given site and, above all, on its last update.
An information source that endorses its contents with dates does not only make it easier for us to determine whether its update is relevant for us in terms of our search goals, but also shows a much higher level of rigour and reliability than that of those sources where no information is provided on the dates their contents were created or updated.
