Citing a resource properly should allow another person to RE-search out the exact same content you mentioned or borrowed. It may be in a website, in print or pdf, but the content should be available and find-able based on the information you cite.
Style manuals are like a template, a standard that helps keep citations consistent. This makes it easier to re-search and find original content when the the citation is the only clue to source. Think of it as a map to a treasure.
