You must know first the difference between the real one and the fake one. Always check the address  cause sometimes phishing site can copy the images and writings of the real site but they cannot duplicate the real ones url address.

I always used to use my private key to log into MEW. I always told myself ... why bother with Metamask. One day I decided to put time and effort into learning how to use Metamask and I haven't looked back. It's simple and safe - what more do you need. Don't rely on private key method for MEW as this is a dangerous login method. Stay safe dudes!

If you want to avoid phising sites, then install a good anti-virus in your web browser. Also don't click on forward links as they are full of phising sites. You can also bookmark your favorites sites. I hope you have gotten your answer.
There are websites that has secure SSL so it can't track if it's a phishing link.

Double check links before clicking. Don't be too anxious to make excess money over night. Some phising links are sent by mail for example with an enticing message to lure you to click and out in your pass phrase. Don't! Watch out.

Pls am new hear I need useful advice on how to avoid phising sites
1. First, you need to be cautious of all types of information on social networks. Not all are true so consider before sharing it with others.

2. As soon as you read a headline or news, if in doubt, use the search engine to cross-check. If one thing really is serious, you can see that a large number of newspapers and news agencies will not be able to "sit still" without giving any information. Maybe, it's just a sarcasm.

3. Check the URL. If it's too weird, think again. For example, if you read a news story that tells the president not to sing the national anthem at a major US sporting event, it's obviously a problem when it comes from the web that is called .com.de.

4. Be careful with the category of photos attached to the link on Facebook. It is always a factor that encourages the user to click on the link, even though you may not find it in the article, the news that you are reading. Take a screenshot of the image, trim it to fit just the image and use Google Image to see what it really is coming from.
Good luck Grin

Double check links before clicking.
You can put the pointer of your mouse to that link and read if that website is legit or not and if you are not familiar to it, don't continue clicking it.

I have found something useful, if you will install metamask it can also figure out phishing websites. Actually there are so many ways to avoid phishing sites, if you know the correct spelling of the website you used to visit and you found out that it's misspelled then that's a fake one.

You should be careful with filling forms anyhow. I'm particular about airdrop forms that require you to sign up to strange websites. Also always try to bookmark all the authentic sites you visit, and be careful with strange emails. I'd advice you use a browser you don't usually use to open pinks you're not sure off.

Boomark safe sites (your favorite trading places for example) and install EAL or MetaMask or Cryptonite.

EAL : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/etheraddresslookup/pdknmigbbbhmllnmgdfalmedcmcefdfn

Metamask : https://myetherwallet.github.io/knowledge-base/migration/moving-from-private-key-to-metamask.html

Cryptonite : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cryptonite-by-metacert/keghdcpemohlojlglbiegihkljkgnige

Never click on a link in google searchs, write the adress yourself. Never click on unknown link in general and read everything you can about security.

good list, i just noticed Cryptonite also is giving "badges" on twitter profiles, very useful.

You can always use some extensions to deal with the phishing sites and avoid it. However, never click on any suspicious links and if you are not sure about any particular link then you can check it on Google or sites like Virustotal - https://www.virustotal.com/#/url/

This site allows you to scan any URL on 67 antivirus platforms and gives you the incident report for the same. Make sure that you have your antivirus installed in your device and you are updating it along with the database frequently.

You just have to avoid malicious websites that normally pop up when you are on a particular site. Always make sure you have inputed the right url in your address bar before navigating. To make things simpler for you, try and install metamask extension to all your browsers and you will always avoid all these phising sites.

It is necessary to check all links and sites to which these links lead.
If you received a suspicious link from a colleague or friend before you go through it, you should make sure that the other end of the line is the one who should be there.

To me, at every regular website there is contact information at the bottom of the page or the "Contact" section of the website, including the following information: Agency, permit, address, telephone number, contact email, ... Fake websites will not have this information.

To avoid becoming a victim of phishing, one must not browse unknown websites or click on any links like “Free Airdrop $100 ETC”. Such links goes to an informational page which demands some of your confidential information.

I would better suggest you to go for antivirus software which allows protect your system from accessing any of these spamming websites which might have an intention of stealing your confidential data.

It is recommended that if you want to visit a website either type URL manually or search in google and then Go. Never go through any link in email.

Since answers are already commented above all I can tell is follow everyone's answers espcecially about typing the website in url address bar and bookmark the site you're using like bitcointalk.org and other sites.

To avoid entering phishing sites, first, you should never click on links that appear in random emails, pop up windows or instant messages because they may lead you to phish sites. Second, you should always bookmark the sites that you trust and go to those sites using the bookmark function. Third, you can install anti phishing toolbars to help you check whether the site you are entering is the correct one.

Also, if there is any doubt or suspect that the site is phishing or contains some viruses, you can check it with this application, just as you can check the files for the presence of a virus. https://www.virustotal.com/
