    We all know that getting a link on wikipedia to stick is very tricky due to their nazi moderators, but I read today that..

    Article here: http://www.t3.com/news/wikipedias-future-in-doubt-49-000-volunteers-leave-site?=42499

    So maybe now would be a good time to try and sneak in a few links in their high traffic pages? :D Just a thought.

    Already done :) Got a link on the acai berry page a few days back. Didn't really notice much traffic though, and being no-follow I'm not convinced if it is a useful link. Still fun though ;)

    You know, Wikipedia is supposed to be helpful and not filled with affiliate links.

    I got a link on a wikipedia site and it's been there for about 10 days and I have seen maybe 7 visits from it.
