Wikipedia - How to milk the ole cow

    So you got yourself a link in wikipedia that stuck huh. Goog for you - you little wiki spammer!

    Wikipedia has gained exceptional credibility with Google and topic pages are ranking super high these days.

    Cool. This is how you juice that link up with some internal Wikipedia PageRank channeling...

    Feel the karma... feel it... then [site:http://en.wikipedia.org keyword] search wikipedia in goog for a mention of your keyword / phrase. Edit those wikipedia pages to link to the lovely wiki page that links to your page.

    Where ever you see:
    keyword phrase
    or
    keyword
    link it internally in wikipedia like this:
    [[keyword phrase]]
    or
    [[keyword]]
    ... whichever applies to link to the wiki page that links to you.
    SEMrush
    It's the magic brackets baby... feel the love.

    The seo Gods will hear your chant as you channel the link love...

    And if they edit your link out of the wiki page repeatedly, but still link to your competitors, click the 'What links here' in the left column and do the reverse... remove the magic [[brackets]] 1. gradually, 2. using a few different online identities... to decrease in internal PageRank and link love from other wiki pages that link to your competitors only. Then quickly rush off and make a peace offering to the zen Gods.

    Wikipedia is sometimes a bit precious about who it links out to, but are more than comfortable with you enhancing how they link internally (cha ching!).

    What other wiki tips have you got?

    Well, I just added my site to a Wikepedia page, is this common practice, it seems like a great idea and I don't know any reason as to why everyone doesn't do it, nice post Dominic!

    Wiki Tips:

    Keep adsense OFF of your homepage and link from wiki to that page. Then, link from your home page to the content pages and transfer the PR that way.

    Then the obvious - offer something useful.

    These two things alone will not keep your link from being deleted, but they can help!

    Honestly Dominic, how can you promote spamming and duplicate accounts with a clear conscience?

    By making peace with the zen Gods and contributing without gain to the wiki to improve it as a resource. Today I spent over an hour researching to update facts for one page (completely unrelated to my websites).

    Realistically, you won't get a link to stick if it isn't considered worthy via consensus. So I'm just saying this is one way you can do legit stuff at wiki to improve the value you receive from that link.

    If the keyword exists somewhere in wiki and isn't linked internally to their own page on that topic in wiki... it should be. What is wrong with that?

    I guess to clarify - I am not recommending adding links in wiki to your page/s where they aren't useful and valid links / spamming.

    My Guns N Roses site was completely relevant for the Wikepedia Guns N Roses page, I just had to add it about five times in one day before they kept it, sadly when they kept it, they put it at the bottom of the fanpages not the top where I had stuck it!

    Wowzer, I would totally ease off. Pushing that hard in one day is likely to get you a bad rep.

    Back off. If they review it out again, look at who reviewed it out... if it was a competitor (that you can see) not so big a deal, but if general members are editing your link out so often I would take a different approach / look at the quality or relevance of your site... and definitely not fist fight 5 times a day to keep the link in.

    As for the order stuff is in, 'exam' is spot on... a link is a link, who gives a rats what the order is! Leave it at a level that is welcomed. It's probably even a good call when adding links to put yours at the bottom of the list to avoid negative attention or competition. You just want to get a mention and the seo benefit - don't you?

    Yep, you don't get it... I'm totally with 'exam' here.

    If you can't work out how and where and why and when to add a link to your site in wikipedia, participating in wikipedia is not for you. No offense hey, just get to it when you have more experience.

    What do you think about this ?

    Looks like external links can get removed even if they get added :(

    Yes they can. Thats the idea of it being editable by anyone, you can add content of any kind and anyone else can edit it out or add to it.

    If you didn't realise, be aware they do track very well who does what and can restore stuff to the previous version is someone goes stupid.

    I see Aaron blogged about this thread at SEO Book with some more advanced tips.

    you will soon "get it"

    wiki is essentially a source of knowledge which anyone can edit. if your industry lays within this and you can manipulate some information making it relevant and bweneficial to browsers then who says you cant award yourself a link to demonstrate....

    Show me some examples of Wikipedia links to commercial sites (and I don't mean the huge brands).

    Your username has tango in it... look up tango dance in wiki:
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tango_%28dance%29

    It's an encyclopedia... look up whatever word you want there are plenty of links off most pages to all kinds of sites.
