    as already said link will definetely be remoed if you are adding non relevant link but if you are authority for that page then you an very well add links

    Here's a comment under the ==External links== that I found.

    I like the one about submitting your link to the Open Directory Project

    loooks like this page was already exploited beyond control. but if your site is an authority then you na go into to the talk page add your link their and it will eventually come on the main page.

    This is interesting. I added a site to wiki and a couple of hours later the site went to Page 1 on Google from Page 2

    Wiki is turning into another DMOZ. On the "do not add more links" pages most of the sites are .gov and .edu

    The link is still sticking after 24 hours. However, whatever SEO effect only lasted a few hours and the site dropped back to the second page.

    It is still possible to add some links. I've got some that have lasted more than a year. But it's getting more difficult.

    Google recently gave Wikipedia $2 million. But the money doesn't go to the editors.

    There's some noise on the web that a cabal of editors is developing similar to what happened at the DMOZ. Once the community was ignored the DMOZ went downhill fast.

    It should be noted that the links from wikipedia external links are no follow. But are authority links and add grace to your link building campaign. Still majority of webmasters don't know how to add links in wikipedia.

    they give you more authority only if you already have certain level of authority.

    They also give you constant source of traffic.

    note: a caution to all don't try to abuse it.
