    Does it matter?
    Bumping a 7 year old thread because I've seen this question posted many times throughout the forum with no answers. I don't want to waste bandwidth if this leads nowhere.

    I edit occasionally and created a couple Wikipedia pages from scratch. It's been a hobby since 2008 or 2009.

    It's a lot of work to babysit and protect against zealous editors. Somebody could come along months or a year later to make changes and it requires going back to justify and rationalize your own edits. Editors can work for pay, but they are supposed to disclose this information on the talk page. For authenticity, the page can't be copied-and-pasted and should include some bit of criticism or controversy. This could be as simple as a bankruptcy or critical quote. I've speedy-deleted or edited articles when they are copied from a press release.

    Besides credibility and vanity, can a Wikipedia page help? I don't know. I recommend you check a similar brand/subject/person/website. Click View History>Page View statistics. There you'll get an idea whether the page gets 5 views or 5,000.

    I've seen some of the paid pages; they are very clearly copied from press releases. If you find a person or service, ensure they write an original page (with sources) or it could be deleted or marked as publicity. I sure wouldn't pay $200 or $300 for it, but that's your business.

    Closing a 7 year old thread because there's nothing wrong with creating a new thread if you have a question that hasn't been answered.
