Following, are a few tips that may help in your perusal of the offerings online and your determination of whether the site you visit or the article you read should be seen as the interweb version of a person of interest:
1) Take anyone who offers you "several valuable tips" at face value (my bad)
2) Forgive the gurus, experts and those who preach what is good for you; because they know not what they do. They are bound to write offering generalized wisdom they've heard from others who heard it quoted from others; advice or information that may or may not have substance. And forgive those who would preach their moral values and define the wrongs of the world for you in an emotive manner. For they too are allowed to rant
3) Tread lightly around sites that present you with an immediate pop-up that urges you to register before you are even able to see what's on the site. These may be ones you find little value in and who will be peppering you with frequent spam emails forevermore, with no easy way to opt out, and
4) Watch for those sites offering fast professional services for a low dollar figure. If you're looking for online help to fill a business need and access a crowdsourcing site that offers fast and cheap services; you will not only get what you pay for but will also be subverting the value of true professionals in your area.
You probably already know all this.
Thanks for reading.
