    That is because it is moderated. You can't just throw links in there.

    The moderators over there are very picky. They will remove most of the commercial and spammy looking links.
    Even links pointing to authoritative source get removed sometimes. Don't waste too much time with Wikipedia, it's not worth it.

    It is worth it if you create your own page and have a good hard link in the content. I have done this twice and both pages have stayed put.

    In terms of traffic and SEO I see no benefit from Wikipedia.
    I have a couple of backlinks coming from Wikipedia which someone else placed :D

    I think wikipedia have no-follow and the posts are usually moderator by the editor.

    Yes the links are no follow but the amount of traffic that the page gets may be enough to drive traffic to your site.

    @zexy ; hmmm... I think this is not the answer on this particular issue or I don't understand the wikipedia matters!?

    It is obviously that the tools are being used. Because the link disappears immediately after one minutes...HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE!

    So someone give this particular external link section on tool to autumated clear any links from others them himself!?
