    So I have a bunch of incoming links and they get better everyday, but I just had a look this morning at the incoming links list and Wikifuckingpedia:yield: has links to my website in reference to my music playlists. I don't know how cool that is (maybe you all do and can tell me), but I know a backlink from them is not small potatos!
    Just thought I would tell you all that I am super happy about that!:D

    That's good but wiki will remove the link very soon if at all they feel it is inappropriate :)

    Wikipedia backlinks are very powerful. Every once in a while I throw a link on there and it gets me tons of fast traffic (depending on the topic). The links vary on how long they last, but usually after a few hours to a day, they're gone. Great job, hopefully it stays up.

    Allthough the links are no follow a lot of scraper sites use the content and the links become do follow

    Wiki is a no-follow? Isn't that kinda wrong? I mean it's cool that they reference sorces *most of the time, but isn't a source link kind of the standard on the net.
    Oh well, they are a multi-million dollar "non-profit". They don't have to right?

    @JasonStilwell - good for you!

    @rest - don't go mass-spamming wiki, after reading this thread...
    G00gle/Yah00 can penalize you:

    Yeah wikipedia is nofollow but google bums off them so I'm sure they still add a nice bit of weight from there.

    Wikipedia is great for backlinks, I've got loads on there :D

    a timely this thread as at the weekend I added a bunch of links to wikip edia on the chance that they may stick. Unfortunately I was a little enthusiastic and added about 10 links to different pages and the same URL as they were gone the next day with a little "do not spam wiki" message to me! probably should only add one in future and hope it sticks!

    I didn't add any links, someone else did, naming my site as a reference site on my subject matter! That is what has me excited

    Woah, I just checked my incoming and I got another from Wiki! Not another visitor. A whole new link. WHY OH WHY can't these be ******** links? I also get cool ones from Yahoo answers and Topix all the time, but even those are not wikis.
