You’ve gone to Wikipedia yourself and probably consider it a trustworthy source of information. So does practically everyone else on the planet, since according to Alexa it’s the 6th most visited site on the web.

When doing a search you’ve probably noticed that the Wikipedia listing for that subject is at the top of the rankings.

So wouldn’t it be nice to get a Wikipedia page for yourself or your business?

In this episode, professional Wikipedia editor Mike Wood, demystifies the subject and shares:

  • Why Wikipedia is such a powerful site
  • What it takes for a business to get a Wikipedia page
  • How and why does a page get deleted from Wikipedia
  • Wikipedia writing style tips
  • Why hire a writer and how to find the right one
  • Tips to write your own Wikipedia page
  • How to get a Wikipedia page article written about you or your business for free
  • How do you budget for hiring a Wikipedia writer
  • What to do before you should pursue getting a Wikipedia page

Key Take-Aways From This Episode:

Getting a Wikipedia page is not something you wake up one morning and decide to try as an SEO or Web Presence Optimization tactic. It’s something you build to as a result of growing your overall presence as a trusted authority and it takes a consistent outreach strategy that builds your reputation as a trusted authority over time.
