    Links from wiki are no follow so they aren't worth that much

    Maybe not for PR, but I got a feeling (no proof) that it does still count for Authority status which can help in the serps.

    Hi,

    Right, back links from niche relative wikipedia pages would be helpful for ranking purpose since wikipedia would be considered as authority on many niches. Also, such back links would be helpful for direct traffic purpose.

    all the best,

    On layman's view, they don't know or care about nofollow attribute, they just link naturally and Google value them. Wikipedia has high reputation so backlinks from them is surely beneficial in any ways, who knows..

    Links from Wikipedia are nofollow, so the are of no use.

    I completely agree with AirForce 1, for ranking, search engine might not see the do-follow and no-follow status of the links. They might be checking the authority of the website linking to the site and give weight to rankings.

    I think it is difficult to get cited or as a backlink from wikepedia unless you are messing with them on purpose. The chances of them linking to your site or page is very small unless you are very popular or something. I have heard cases where people attempt to point a link to their site to gain exposure. I don't know that it would stick that long before someone edited it or removed it. Why go through the trouble for all that.

    I have seen in webmaster tools backlinks from sites that are nofollow that seem to count in google's eye's anyway. Maybe they are quality, or they have a select few nofollow that count for some reason. At anyrate they do show up in wmt. Why that is or what the bump might be from them I do not know exactly. I just keep an eye on them to see where they go and whether they help that much.

    Exactly. I mean, would you remove a backlink from a, let's say, PR8 website? Point made :)

    Once, I've made SMM for one investing portal, and placed a backlink from wiki article to related article on that website, it wasn't much popular but since I've placed a backlink site got over 1500 views from wiki through that backlink.

    Wiki is really great authoritative website which can effect on your website's authority and traffic.

    But the fact is that it's really hard to place a bakclink on wiki without being banned. You should be a trusted member of wiki to do so.

    do-follow or no-follow backlink only affect to page rank. If you got backlink from trusted site (e.g wikipedia), you will get heavy benefits for your website

    Many people set up pages that simply copy the contents from a certain wikipedia page. The thing is though, the copied pages may have the links as dofollow. :)

    Yes it's no-follow, so what? Even though Google will count it, cuz it's from very authoritive source. And it simply can bring you a lot of visitors.

    Anyone still believe Google when they say they don't pass pagerank down nofollow links? Anyone think they managed to implement that cleanly?
