How To Add A Website To Wikipedia?
Posted 24 November 2007 - 08:49 AM
Since anyone can do these edits the result is lots of people editing only for the purpose of adding links to sites of personal interest rather than links to highest quality content. Most important pages in wikipedia have several people who watch all editing to be sure that vandalism does not occur and to immediately delete links placed there for personal gain.
So, if the site that you plan to add to wikipedia does not have best-on-the-web level content then it is very likely that the links that you add will be deleted quickly. Also, if you think that adding links to wikipedia will improve your search engine rankings that will probably not happen because wikipedia links to external sites are "nofollow".

When you do that then your "contribution" doesn’t come across as self serving and the editors are happy!
I did that some 10 months ago and my link is still there.
BTW, www.wikihow.com is another good site to do the same in. And just like wikipedia.org/ the links in www.wikihow.com are nofollow.
