    Hi All,

    Is was wundering, what means wiki links exactly? Is it a link on Wikipedia to your website, or is it something complete different?

    And, how to get wiki links?, are the wikilink realy that importend?

    Is it possible to write a article on wikipedia and then give it a link to your website, i have read a wikipedia article wich has my kedword number one, and this article has backlinks to some website's outside wikipedia, so it should be possible i think.

    Regards and thank you for advice

    Definition of a wiki:
    Wikipedia.org is just one of millions wiki sites, but the most popular one.

    It's nearly impossible to get a backlink from wikipedia.org because the quality of every page are heavily monitored. I tried to add one backlink to a wiki page but it get removed few minutes later by a moderator. Even if you got one, that link is useless in term of SEO because all outbound links on wikipedia.org are n0follow

    Wiki is a word used to describe a website were the users have generated the content as opposed to the website owner, though not to be confused with a web 2.0 link where only the contents creator can edit the content.

    Wiki links are pretty easy to get as you can identity wiki sites by a footprint which the platform uses:

    So say for example you wanted to find link opportunities from wiki websites which are running the media wiki platform all you need do is go to google and search:

    Code:
    keyword "powered by media wiki"
    And you will find plenty of websites where you can sign up and post you content along with your link.

    Its debatable whether wiki links are important though at the end of the day the link you're getting will be from a PR page which is likely on a low PR website, so IMO they're only really good as a second tier of a link pyramid

    As for wikipedia, external links are no follow, so won't really have much impact on your seo
