High PQ


High 1

This is a health news article on a popular and reputable website (WebMD). All of the on-page and website-level PQ checks look good.

High 2

The purpose of this page is clear, and there is a very large quantity of MC. The article does an extremely good job of citing resources (which are themselves reputable), so even though we don’t know who is responsible for the content, our concerns about medical accuracy/expertise are somewhat allayed. The references themselves are also valuable. The page has a satisfactory amount of helpful SC. The layout is good.

A rating of Highest is too high for a Wikipedia article on a medical (or other YMYL) topic. However, the quantity of information and the references allow us to rate higher than Medium. Although this page is not authoritative, the resources cited confer some evidence of authority/accuracy. This page achieves its purpose well and merits a PQ rating in the High range.

High 3

This is a blog post in the Style section of an award winning news website (New York Times). All of the on-page and website level PQ checks look good. Although this is not a “serious” news story, most blog posts by regular contributors on award winning news websites are considered High quality. As you can see here
