    Hi BHW,

    What would you say about the competition level when Wikipedia is first on SERP? How easy is it to outrank Wikipedia ? Would it be worth it ?

    Personally if its a small niche, i most of the time try to find an alternative KW Reason? 1) Wiki pages are harder to outrank, 2) When a user sees a wiki page in the results on the topic they will most likely solely use that page, with much lower click through rates on 2nd, 3rd and 4th pos. I also tend to find comp, is stronger when a wiki page is present and prefer to find 2-5 alternatives that will be easy to rank for and bring the same amount of traffic.

    means not worth trying to rank as the content is superior and bls trust it strongly as a authoratative source

    Google love big authority website after Penguin. In my niche (small niche), i see they are pushing up Amazon, Wiki, about.com, answers.com ... to top positions. Most of those pages have less than 5 backlinks. Personally i think OP have no chance to outrank wiki.

    Almost sounds like a backdoor strategy to a tiered internet, don't it?

    Where's my net neutrality?

    Oh right...money talks...never mind :\
