Marketing a small business is challenging nowadays. Though the Internet gives us boundless opportunities to advertise virtually for free and in hundreds of places, this often still isn’t enough. Unfortunately, for businesses in many industries, this means there are more companies vying for that first page position.
Fortunately for small business owners everywhere, there is still one website that shows up on the first page of search engine results, above the fold every time, on a variety of topics. It’s a site we all know and many of us use every week, if not every day; Wikipedia.
In addition to reaching the first page of the search engines, Wikipedia backlinks are excellent to get if you can get them, (even though they’re no-follow).
Why Bother With Wikipedia No-Follow Links?
• Google still views Wikipedia as an authority site. The websites the articles reference must be of a certain caliber as well. They must be notable sources. Therefore, your backlink still carries more weight than it would on a random blog.
• Wikipedia backlinks can lead more people to your website. They can also help to build your brand recognition. Not everyone curious about what you do is a customer. Some people are writers and industry leaders wanting to learn more about you for possible media coverage, joint ventures and partnerships.
• Lastly, Wikipedia backlinks build link diversity. This is crucial if you want the search engine spiders to take you seriously. If you have a bunch of do-follow links, the search engines will think you just paid for a marketing campaign. However, link diversity looks much more natural and gives you favor in the eyes of the search engine spiders.
