Has anyone tried adding content to wikipedia
i mean the content should be quality enough to be part of wikipiedia but has anyone tried it yet.
I have added 4 external links till now all high quality how-to's and i am getting about 20% visit daily from wikipedia.
for individual users wikipedia has what we call as user pages.
ex : User:Anantshri - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
what i am talking about quality content worth adding in wikipedia which is not self promotion.
example : Splashy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
third link under external link is my blog post. this similar post also got featured in debian mailling list. so authentic source.
As already said.
Please add link which is relevant.
like i gave example.
I actually got that link published in debian news and then only i added it in wikipedia.
currently i have around 4 links in wikipedia.
and that's a good number also keeping in mind that articles are constantly being edited and my links have stayed for more then a year means the link is actually worth it.
Someone added one of my links to Wikipedia. The link points at Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Dogs that is about a breed of dog I own. It brings in about 30 visitors a day from the wikipedia listing.
The website went from 5 people a day to 35 - nice increase IMO.
And about adding links to Wikipedia, I believe the best way is to produce quality content, and add your links as a reference in a post. As long as it's good and not blatant self promotion, it will stay. Afterall, Wikipedia was created by the users for the users (for the most part).

If you try to post your link to Wikipedia to more than one place from single IP, you will get banned - I mean your website, it will be considered as spam. It only works if you have top quality website and extremely relevant, it has to be the best site (authority) in the niche if it is an important keyword. Some years ago it was a nice trick, nowdays it doesn't count too much.
