How do I figure out if a rug is handknotted or not?

I'm thinking about buying a used rug on craigslist. I realize that buying rugs are perilous, and will be purchasing something I think looks attractive on my floor rather than worrying about whether I'm getting an authentic or valuable rug. But I'd still like to know if a rug is actually hand knotted or not. Bonus question: is there a good way to tell if flatwoven rugs are handmade?
