    hehe, yeah and amazingly enough those are do-follow links, however I guess after that outing G. has made this page useless regarding pagerank flow...

    I would adjust that title to "WikiMedia" selling links - not Wikipedia.

    I just scored about 3 backlinks from the actual Wikipedia last month for a client of mine.

    Granted they are no follow - but who doesn't like a good wikipedia link!

    All it took for me was a few well researched interviews with bands/artists who already had their own Wikipedia page.

    Go in and add your link as an outside source - haven't had any editors remove mine yet :)

    Waste of money. Google is just going to treat all the links on that page as no follow.

    No .org can be used for anything now, it used to be for non profit not anymore.

    Selling links with nofollow tag is not against Google TOS. But they don't have nofollow tag.

    Non profit does not mean that they do not make money.
