Whether or not you believe in having links in Wikipedia, It’s always nice to have a tip.

Nofollow links can play a little in search ranking, we have all seen test’s where Bloggers have signed Blogs, with an obscure anchor texts and these Blogs had nofollow’s and the target site ranks for these obscure terms now.

Ok that’s on Blogs what about the Wiki, Ok here is my Tip.

Lets take Seomoz ( link to keep Rand happy, because I’m using him as an example ;) ), say Rand was my biggest competitor in the blogsphere, we had similar content and similar goals, But he had been busy in the Wiki and I hadn’t …

ok go to this page in wiki this will show you all Rands back links from the wiki.

here’s one on Vanessa Fox Ok If seomoz is my Competitor shouldn’t i get in touch with Vanessa and get an interview about her new job and get my wiki link ??

or the pagerank one or the .. it goes on and on, Now I used Rand as an example but I should have checked all my competitors, and just made a list of articles to write.
