Surface Credibility

Surface sites are pages that aesthetically pleasing at first notice, rather than depending on the url. An example of this is the AQUA, the images and information is presented well with the logo as a major feature.

Earned Credibility     

Earned sites are those that have been constant in their accuracy for the viewers needs and are based to filled their desires. An example of this is social media pages such as Facebook. The page focuses on signing up new users and caring for those who are already apart of the subscription.
