For many learners, trying to follow the APA style guidelines can be an extremely frustrating process, especially when the item you’re trying to cite doesn’t fit neatly within a given category, for example, citing from a Website.
Keep in mind there might be reasons why there aren’t clear citation examples. In this case, Websites don’t tend to be cited in academic writing – instead researchers and students make use of peer-reviewed articles. So make sure you consider if your source is appropriate before citing it.
Here’s a blog entry I found, How to Cite Something You Found on a Website in APA Style that goes over the best practices for citing from Websites. Because this blog is put out by people from the APA (American Psychological Association), it has some weight and authority behind it instead of some professors’ ‘best APA tips’ page that you might find on the Web.
