    Usually your link will be removed later. Specially if your site looks like an unprofessional money site. (like most of our sites :))

    Heres some additional tweaks/steps to maximize impact.

    Now the secret sauce

    • Take the dead link URL from above and run it through your favourite backlink checker to get all the URL that link to the dead link
    • Then send a classic broken link building outreach type email but with the TWIST that Wikipedia already updated their link so they should to

    Then even if Wikipedia does remove your link...

    ...well you still got a bunch of links from other sites where you use the "wikipedia update" as leverage to get your link placed.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    Man,
    First of all if you get a backlink from wikipedia, it's amazing.
    And it's hard to acquire a link and so it is to remove

    For this method to work it’s crucial that the content been linked to is an actual, valid replacement for the original link. May be worth linking to a blog or editorial post and then linking to your own site from the blog article

    From my experience, most of the times you will do it the link will probably get deleted. Unless you are linking to a REALY high quality site.
