Evaluating

Who links to the website?

You can check who has linked to a website by using a search engine such as Google, type in the search box the word 'link', then a colon, then the url of the website that you are interested in. For example:

The Google simple search screen, demonstrating the search 'link:http://www.shl.lon.ac.uk'

This will give you a set of results listing all the pages linking to the original website. If this list includes reputable institutions such as universities or the government, it is more likely that the original website is also reputable.
