Formulating Priority of IQ Criteria on the Blog
The World Wide Web (WWW) has become one of the fastest growing electronic information sources. Meanwhile new facilities for producing web pages such as Blogs make this issue more significant because Blogs have simple content management tools enabling non-experts to build easily updatable web diaries or online journals. On the other hand despite a decade of active research, information quality lacks comprehensive methodology for its assessment and improvement. Especially there is not any framework for measuring information quality on the Blogs yet. This paper establishes a survey on Iranian Blog as our case study presents results of the survey, prioritizes information quality criteria by allocating priority coefficient to all the criteria as an important prerequisite for measuring information quality in the Blogs. Also results of the research by gap analysis shows there is a solid consensus between Bloggers and visitors about the priorities of information quality criteria in the Blogs.
