    I'm planing to get some Wikipedia links for my authority blogs.

    Tho, i see many people talk about the "no-follow" scenario of Wikipedia links, i'm just curious to know if "No-follow" from Wikipedia do have some SEO value?

    i'm again curious to know if i start some PBN, is it a good idea to get PBN sites which has wiki backlinks, good link profile and matrices?
    What exactly these days working for "competitive keywords" other than PBN and web 2.0's ? i'm really worried as all my keywords struck between 8-20, no matter what niche it is.

    Answers are appreciated,
    If you don't feel like sharing info public i'd love the PM.

    No-followed links from authority domains helps increase your website relevancy and authority, but they cannot directly help with serps.

    What do you think if I start translating English documents into Spanish.
    Then I will add references for my authority blog related to the concept I translated. (A category of the blog)
    Will that work?

    Wikipedia links (and all nofollow links in general) are useless for SEO, although you can get a trickle of traffic from them daily. I once had a wikipedia link for one of my dog food websites (now extinct) that I didn't monetise (which is why the link wasn't deleted - I placed the link myself) and I was getting around 5 clicks per day from that wiki article.

    The fact that I said wiki links are useless for SEO doesn't mean you shouldn't give them a try. I just think they are not worth it.

    If you are building an "Authority" blog you want Wikipedia links(if you can get legitimate ones that stick)

    Any site should have 15-20% no follow links in its profile. Might as well get quality links from wiki rather than the usual crap.

    I've no doubt that N0f0ll0w pass juice, obvously not PR juice but no one gives a shit about that. As part of a broad link profile NF links are every bit as important as DF and Wiki links are nice to have.

    I really appreciate your answer, i tried everything to different sites. best what works are guest post, but i'm still struck at rank #8 to #20 for all my websites and keywords. No matter what niche it is.
    all i'm expecting from member to help me out with better working source.

    P.S. I'm only targeting High/Medium competition keywords. Backlink profile and "authority" for all sites are Extremely powerful, here's i'm not talking about moz DA, tho its 40-60 for each domains.

    Perhaps you could improve your on-page SEO. Keyword optimization, a fast loading time or a better internal linking could make a difference.

    It won't help with the SERPs but it does increase your relevancy.

    Wikipedia links can be rather counterproductive. They can throw you back in Serps. I mean, they are good links in general, but for Serps they just won't help.

    Google isn't going to rank your site on the first page right off the bat for medium/high competition keywords. You have to start with keywords that have a very low level of competition. As your site begins to build more authority and rank for those low competition keywords, it will start rising for the medium/high competition keywords too.

    It's worthless to create Wikipedia links for PBNs or Web 2.0, instead follow other link building techniques.Only if you are working on a money site then you may build some powerful Wikipedia links - JUST for getting traffic. Don't expect more than that :)

    1 no-follow link from Wikipedia = 10 do-follow links from normal sites!

    Since you have nothing to lose why not have wiki links to your site.

    Good for diversity and direct traffic but not for serps.

    Didn't test this but even a no-follow link has weight, if it's wikipedia, even better... it will play a small part in your serps and it's not like everyone can post their link there. Combine that with the huge amount of direct/follow links that the site gets and you might have a gem

    This won't work, because the power of wikipedia links come from the high DA/PA/NF/DF of the
    pages, where millions of sites have already linked to that page.

    If you do this - then later on when those pages get linked, then it will pass authority to your site.

    But starting off, it won't pass any juice itself.

    Wikipedia is a good source for your authority sites. it gives good relevancy for your website.
