The current study is compatible with the scientific mobility in dealing with the Internet as a source of knowledge. It aims to introduce the Physics Education Websites (PEWs) and guide their followers toward the most credibility of them by analyzing their content. The sample consisted of (36) websites which were selected according to specific criteria by using Alexa search engine. To collect data, a questionnaire was used as a tool of analysis included (25) items which were distributed to (5) standards: authority, coverage, currency, accuracy and objectivity. The findings showed variations in the availability ratio of credibility standards and indicators in relevant websites. Finally, the study recommended that it is necessary to review and update the PEWs periodically; because physics as a natural science needs observing its accelerating discoveries and activities.
