and Strategies

@TheWikiWizards
Why Should you Care about
Wikipedia?
1. 6th
most viewed website in the world
2. Legitimacy for your organization
3. Featured in Google Knowledge Graph
4. Competitive advantage over other grant recipients
5. Staying power of information on Wikipedia
@TheWikiWizards
578,461,176 Wikipedia May 2015 home page hits
What do Readers do when they get to Wikipedia:
Search for an article
Read the introduction
Browse the outline
Skim for important sections
Click through the sources for additional information
- These sources can be your articles!
Drive Traffic to your Site
@TheWikiWizards
● Your organization must have things that are
noteworthy
○ Having a news organization publish about your
accomplishments
● It’s not easy to get an article to stick on Wikipedia
○ But once it's on Wikipedia, it's hard to remove
● This exclusivity community builds legitimacy
because so few organizations can get on Wikipedia
Legitimacy and Noteworthy
@TheWikiWizards
Competitive Advantage

@TheWikiWizards
Why is it so hard to get into
Wikipedia?
● It’s an encyclopedia, not a marketing channel
● The content is published under an open license
○ You don’t own the content
○ You can’t control what others publish
○ Sometimes negative things can be published
● Avoid marketing jargon, bias, and sales pitch of
any type
● It’s difficult to define what’s “notable”
○ Every line of text must be published by a news
source and cited
@TheWikiWizards
Nobody likes Spam
● When marketing departments work on articles for
Wikipedia, the content sounds like an infomercial.
● Forget about keywords, persuasive arguments,
and colorful languages.
● Every statement needs to be backed up with a
quality source from a news outlet
● Be anonymous with your user name, i.e. NOT
“JoeThePlumberMarketer”
@TheWikiWizards
How to become “Notable”
1. Do something worthy of press coverage (events,
service projects, major accomplishments, ...)
2. Publish a press release
3. Use social networks, or hire a PR firm, to get
media coverage
4. Add this coverage to an ongoing file for future
citation
5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 until “notable”
This helps your organization even if you don't build a
Wikipedia article
@TheWikiWizards
Tricks for Writing your first Article
1. Start small. A few lines or even a short article.
5,000 - 10,000 characters of wiki-code max.
2. Backup every statement with a quality citation
3. Don’t worry about keywords and other content
marketing requirements. Anyone should
understand what you have written.
4. Before you write a new article, find places in
Wikipedia to add dead links to the future article
○ Someone may find these dead links and write
the article for you, then you can expand it with
edits
@TheWikiWizards
Tips for Handling Conflicts with
Wikipedian
● Always remain anonymous
○ Don’t give them any ammunition to claim you
have a bias toward the subject of your article
● Focus on the facts of the article
● Avoid opinions and ground your arguments with
citations
● Get to know other Wikipedians that can help
○ Participate in edit-a-thons
○ Join the local user group
○ Contribute to other projects on Wikipedia
@TheWikiWizards
How to Drive Traffic to your Site
with Wikipedia Links
1. Find a dead link - wikigrabber.com
2. Create a great resource to replace that dead link
3. Publish your source
4. Post an update to replace the dead link on
Wikipedia
Bonus:
Measure traffic on Wikipedia articles using http://stats.

Repeat steps 1 through 4 until “notable” This helps your organization even if you don't build a Wikipedia article @TheWikiWizards
