Why have a Wikipedia page?
Getting a new business running can be a challenging task. Trying to do this while establishing a quality, user-friendly website that properly showcases your company can be extremely difficult. However, because of Wikipedia’s reputation and agreements with the major online search engines, your Wikipedia page will see a high volume of marketing by being listed as one of the top search results. This can be extremely difficult when trying to advertise a standard web page. Because Wikipedia is not social media, a directory of businesses, or any sort of a news website, it is often overlooked when it comes to marketing because anyone can contribute to it. However, when you create a Wikipedia page it can be a powerful marketing tool if used properly. Wikipedia requires their pages to be filled with quality writing, and will delete pages that do not meet their standards. This will give your business a leg up on the competition by showing potential customers that you care about high quality and will not settle for less.
Do I qualify for a Wikipedia page?
In general, Wikipedia editors look to make sure that the subject and sources are notable. Some of the items that do not qualify as notable include press releases, official company websites, or social media accounts, such as Facebook or Twitter. A key to establishing notability is the source being independent, so they cannot be self-published or related to the topic directly. The professional Wikipedia experts at Get Your Wiki are neutral, meaning they are independent from the topic. Businesses may qualify as notable content, provided the page is done properly. Some things to note are that the Wikipedia page must be civil, done from a neutral point of view, and be free of any conflict of interest.
With Wikipedia having such strong requirements, it can create issues for people that would like to make a Wiki page, but don’t know how to work with the guidelines. Therefore, it’s highly recommended you hire a professional Wikipedia writer. They will create a professional page that meets Wikipedia’s standards and ensure there is very little to no chance of your page being flagged or deleted. If you don’t feel like dealing with the time and energy to go through and check out several Wikipedia editors, just to find out you were flagged and deleted anyways, consider the professional team at Get Your Wiki. The experienced, professional team at Get Your Wiki will create a Wikipedia page that has engaging content and will attract customers for you, while meeting Wikipedia’s guidelines.
