Abstract: The Web is an important source for people who are seeking healthcare information. Users, who search for health information online, do so without professional guidance. A major problem faced is the possibility that poor information has detrimental effects on health. In this sense, the main goal of this work is to provide a framework that evaluates health webpage designed especially for common users, those that may lack sufficient knowledge to validate health content. In order to achieve this goal, we proposed a new methodology to calculate a Trust rank based on reputation and a set of quality indicators. The proposed methodology has shown effective to evaluate the quality of health information sources.
