You have probably heard of Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia, created by the collaborative effort of thousands of people.
The most edited 2016 Wikipedia page was Deaths in 2016. Revised by Wikipedia editors 18,230 times, it was way over the second entry; Donald Trump’s with 8,933 edits. But time will only make Trump’s article more relevant and reviewed. According to The Wikimedia Foundation, George W Bush’s page has the most edits of any English article in the history of the site, with 45,862 Wikipedia edits at last count.
This level of interest is reflected in Wikipedia coming at the top 5 spots in Google’s search results. People use Google search to find more about real news, learning about people, businesses, and events. In this era where fake news has become “prime” news, people and businesses reputations can be easily destroyed.
So important, it has become a business. A business that can help enhance your online prestige, authenticity, and credibility, and watch over your reputation. Consider it a digital asset that must be nurtured and maintained.
Get Your Wiki is staffed by veteran Wikipedia editors, who can help you create and manage that online asset. They do it by following Wikipedia’s manual of style, monitoring and translating your page so it becomes relevant to many communities around the world.
Consider this. As an open source community, Wikipedia relies on a large group of dedicated readers and editors to create and update its pages. Once granted access by the community, anyone can edit a Wikipedia page. While most changes are done in good faith, other edits can be malicious and can hurt you. There’s even a Wikipedia page for it: Vandalism on Wikipedia. For example, in July 2015, Donald Trump’s entire Wikipedia page was replaced with one sentence: “Let’s be fair, nobody cares about him.”
There are ways and means to prevent or reduce these acts in your Wikipedia page, but it requires professionals with the experience and knowledge to apply those practices.
Get Your Wiki can bring peace of mind by creating, monitoring and translating your Wikipedia page, making it a reliable source of information for many Web communities.
