    a lot of people (included my self) search in google something like "keyword wikipedia" when you are looking for a definition. Is faster that going to wikipedia site and using its search function.

    Well, today while I was doing a research for something totally different, i notice that in the "call forwarding" page at tollfreeforwarding.com there is this paragraph:

    Url to check:
    Code:
    http://www.tollfreeforwarding.com/free-call-forwarding-number.html
    Guess what? they not only rank in top 10 for "call forwarding", but also for "Call forwarding wikipedia" second only to wikipedia itself.

    I'm not sure how many traffic (or its quality) will bring a keyword like "Call forwarding wikipedia", but I'm sure that is worth the try.

    I've been using 'wiki' terms internally recently as i've found a lot of users searching for 'keyword wiki/wikipedia' and it seems a shame to let that traffic go to waste.

    Thanks for the tip but wouldn't it be more than hard to beat out the ranking Wikipedia page?

    It depends...

    Long time ago I read a tutorial from blue hat seo about beating wikipedia. One thing I remember he said was to remove each internal backlink to page you want to outrank. So, find all other wikipedia pages that link to that one, and slowly remove each link. Some will come back, some don't.
