    Abstract

    Unreliable web pages such as fake news has become a global problem in big data era. The motivation to publish fake news is often for profit; for example, earning advertisement income by putting ads on their web pages. In this paper, we focus on different usage of HTML source tags between reliable and unreliable web pages, then propose new features for predicting their credibility. The experimental result shows that our proposed features increase accuracy when used together with previously proposed Contents features.
