    I would say that it would be almost impossible. Just test it yourself by putting a famous actor's name in Google and you will see Wikipedia and IMDB at numbers 1 & 2 usually.

    Personally, I wouldn't waste my time.

    Impossible:rolleyes:

    Alot of wiki's ranking power comes from its internal keyword linking structure...and this is where you can knee cap a wiki pages SERPS :D

    Normally with wiki if a n00b adds a external link to a page the wikinazis will be undoing the link within days...

    The knee capping trick is to create a wiki account and discover all the internal wiki pages linking to the page you want to knee cap and edit out the [[ ]] around the keywords linking to the page...thus the page will lose alot of its wiki power. Try and hide the edits by adding some content to the edited pages.

    I have overtaken wikipedia on medium and low competition keywords. But for something big like an actor, I would say that it's not worth the effort. Move on to a new project.
