    You can put links in "external links" if your site got some really good information on that topic.
    And yes wikipedia links are pretty good.

    Wikipedia won't let you link to any untrusted site without reviewing the link first. Good luck!

    If you've got information that's genuinely valuable to the page you're posting on, then go for it.

    If you plan to just link-spam Wikipedia, they'll put an end to you real quick.

    I've managed to get several Wiki links over the course of the last several years. They can send a lot of traffic too, even though they're nofollow.

    Yes, it will help you in getting referral traffic for your site... But these links are nofollow, you you won't get any backlink credt out of them.

    You can get wikipedia link by citing their articles or adding your website as reference site.

    Make sure you aren't spamming Wiki with worthless links, they simply won't stick.

    Try and create something of value and link it accordingly, those tend to stick better and moderators will let it slide.

    three years ago one of my competitor managed to link to their homepage in wikipedia for the main keyword I have

    so I promptly used one of my existing pages and added a content that WAS MISSING in that wiki page to the page on my website.... I did some historical research on the issue covered by the keyword to add something relevant that is missing on that wiki page

    then I paraphrased in abbreviated form what I wrote on my page and added it to wiki and cited my page as source

    it stuck as a link to my site for over 3 years now

    -- besides historical research on the subject you can also search news and perhaps add newsworthy article on the subject, paraphrasing receing events or happenings on your site, citing sources on your site and then wiki it

    good luck

    nofollows do have a value.... in G's eyes. My theory is that G also tracks and counts "mentions" of your domain name, "Mentions" are not links but say if there is a viral thing and everybody starts mentioning ... I saw this on "fox news" or "foxnews.com" or have you seen what "fox news" - those "mentions" contribute to the overall score.... so If you can get a large number mentions all over the web it will help. Just my theory, but If I was designing the algo, I would certainly incorporate this.

    The very first time i tried placing link to one of our clients it worked well. I just registered and added the link and it works. It has been 5 days now and the link is still live.
