I saw a thread posted a while ago about a guy selling Wikipedia articles with links to your site for $1,000. This is absolutely ridiculous for two reasons: 1.) A link from Wikipedia is NOT worth that much money. 2.) Anybody can get a link from Wikipedia by themselves with at most 20 minutes of work. What a Link from Wikipedia Is A nofollow link with a real-page PR of usually between 3-7 from one of the strongest, highest domain authority websites in the world. I have had some success with Wikipedia links. For instance, I am building an authority site. Without any SEO work except copywriting, one of its articles in a LOW competition niche made it to position 20 on Google. I built a Wikipedia link to it and nothing else - a few days later it jumped to position number 3. What a Link from Wikipedia Isn't A magic link that will get you to number one on Google for "Auto Insurance Beverly Hills." Who Can / Can't Get a Link from Wikipedia Anybody with a semi-legitimate looking website in just about any niche except adult / pharma (Yes, I didn't mention gambling. I have gotten gambling links from Wikipedia). How to Get a Link from Wikipedia Wikipedia is a crowd-edited source. There are editors, moderators, super moderators and so forth. Anybody can create an article or edit an article. Moderators also go through and edit other peoples edits. This is the part that makes things tricky because moderators there are INTENSE. You could go, right now, and add a link to your money site from the body-text of any article on Wikipedia and it would actually get uploaded, but it would get taken down in a number of seconds. Getting links to stick requires some tact: Create an account on Wikipedia (top right). Find a page that is relevant to your website. For instance, let's say we are selling pilates equipment. We might make it to this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Core_stability The way you are going to add links is by adding "references." References look like this: Code: [FONT=sans-serif] Trunk or core specific exercise have failed to demonstrate preventative benefits against injuries in sports [/FONT][SUP][URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Core_stability#cite_note-9"][/URL][/SUP][SUP][URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Core_stability#cite_note-10"][/URL][/SUP][SUP][URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Core_stability#cite_note-11"][/URL][/SUP][FONT=sans-serif] or to improve sports performance.[/FONT][SUP][URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Core_stability#cite_note-12"][/URL][/SUP] If you click those numbers between the brackets, they will take you to a block of external links at the bottom of the page. â€‹Edit a section of text and click the little book button that says "Add Reference." In the pop-up screen, enter your URL and press ok. When you save the page, there will be a new bracket with a number wherever you put it and at the bottom in the references section there will be a link to your website. How to Make it Stick There are a few techniques you can use to make the reference stick. First of all, if the sentence is "Core stability is good for the heart," then on your webpage make sure there's a line somewhere that says that. Make something up and say "Dr. Jacobs in his experiments in 1994 at the University of Stanford, proved that core stability increases heart health in a number of key measurements" or something like that. That way, the reference is valid (or at least looks valid). Look for places that say "Citation Needed." On the page I provided you can see like ten of them. Put your reference in there and in the "edit notes" section, say something like "Inserted a reference to fill in a 'citation needed' issue." Wiki editors LOVE THIS because you are fixing things they have flagged as issues. Code: [FONT=sans-serif]Whenever a person moves, to lift something or simply to move from one position to another, the core region is tensed first[/FONT][SUP][[I][URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed"]citation needed[/URL][/I]][/SUP][FONT=sans-serif].[/FONT] Insert two references for the same sentence. First, include a really intense good edu or gov reference (for example: http://www.health.harvard.edu/healthbeat/5-ways-exercise-helps-men-live-longer-and-better) and then add your reference right after it, reducing suspicion. Do these things and you'll be popping up Wikipedia links link it's nobody's business.
