5 things to know before using a marketing tool with Wikipedia

Wikipedia is and will be, one of the company’s best marketing tools. With a Wikipedia page, it not only helps to bring your name to the first Google page, but it also helps to increase the page rank after the Wikipedia page is referred to.

For years, Wikipedia Page Creation Services are creating pages for companies and businesses for marketing purposes. They help their clients to move ahead of what they are achieving now and improve their company productions and reputation. Wikipedia has been given quite bit authority by Google. Even a simple link on Google can boost up your marketing efforts. There are a couple of things you should know before you jump to edit Wikipedia for yourself or a client:


  1. Guidelines on conflicts interest:

In the case of conflicts of interest, Wikipedia has strict guidelines. When someone edits an article, a conflict of interest occurs, and this means someone who edits an article of their own or their company is strongly encouraged to not edit it. While no provision is provided that you can’t edit an article, an editor will probably tag and delete it if you discover a conflict of interest.


  1. If you’re not done properly, Wikipedia will damage you:

Wikipedia is like activity and can be catastrophic if not done correctly for your company. You may think, for instance, it is a good idea to include a list of Wikipedia articles on your website. What you feel is a good idea is actually spamming and your links will probably be removed (and your URL will not be listed black in the future).

I wrote an article earlier on Wikipedia as a tool for managing reputation. Although it can be a good idea to have a reputation management Wikipedia article (which will drive unfavorable contents off page 1 of Google), it’s a poor idea to create it when you have bad information concerning Google. The authors would finally link these negative articles with the Wikipedia page, which will grant these papers a more authoritative influence to Search.


  1. Formatting instructions:

Formatting is one of Wikipedia’s most relevant (besides noteworthiness) standards. The unformatted paper is more scrutinized than a formatting document. It’s not correctly formatted.

It involves modeling rather than the Wikipedia rules. A visually attractive document may tend to be properly crafted and follow the guidelines. Editors are more likely to pass documents properly formatted with headings, right quote template, and posts.

In comparison, when an article is not meeting the instructions on formatting offers an alert that the person who posts the article has no idea what it is doing. This post will then be screened and gutted or removed by a fine-tooth comb.


  1. Create and submit an article

Two principal ways to publish an article in Wikipedia are available. Firstly, simply post the article in the main area, and secondly, submit it to the Wikipedia creative articles (AfC). Remember that Wikipedia does not have a formal “approval” system. So the article is still subject to future deletion review, although the article is submitted to the AFC project and has “approved.”

I will encourage you to apply the article in AFC where you can seek input and ideally push the article to the main space when you are worried about writing your first post. I would recommend that you feel comfortable with this article you made, as it will eventually sink or swim, I will put it directly into the main space.


  1. Deletion Process

The removal method can be very disturbing. However, you will hopefully not panic if your article is recommended to be deleted if you realize the way the process works. The three removal forms were speedy deletion, proposed deletion and recommended for deletion. Speedy deletion has been the nominee for your page, then you must see the talk page, and leave the comment. The remaining two deletion processes are much calmer. If there are issues identified by the editors and that to be corrected by the author that is called “proposed Deletion”. When an editor feels that such article shall be deleted then recommendation reason must be given this process is called “Recommended for deletion”
