Where to find Wikipedia links... - Kurt - 05-06-2020

Wikigrabber is a great free tool that finds pages on Wikipedia with broken links. It's been a while since I used this strategy so I won't give any advice, but if you're into SEO it is probably worth your while to get some links from Wikipedia and research up-to-date strategies to get a link that sticks.

It's generally best to use Wikigrabber to do research first, then create a "pillar page" (high quality) for content specific to that topic. You can (and probably should) check The Wayback Machine and see what content was linked to. Don't copy it, just use it as a guideline.

A quality link or two from Wikipedia to your network can do wonders for your Google rankings.

I forgot to add...you can take this strategy a step further and look for dead links in Wikipedia (and other authority sites) and then check if the domain names are available. Then buy the domain name and recreate (not steal) the general content of the "linked to" page. Starting an SEO linking campaign with a high authority link can be a big advantage.

I did some work for Dr. Manny back in the day he had me posting to a gazillion pages that talked about 
one wikipedia subject is that a pillar page?

Do you have an example of a pillar page? believe it or not I have never heard that term before what does
that mean? Can you expand on the high quality aspect? I'm really interested in this topic would love to
know more.

A pillar page is a page that would be considered the best on a topic by many and easier to build links to because of it. In the context here, a pillar page won't be seen as spam and should be appreciated by the people you share it with.

A similar concept is a "skyscrapper page" and may be better. A skyscaper has a ton of content about topic on the same page. I would consider this to be a skyscraper page from Crian Dan on the topic of Link Building. This is an easy page to post a link to on sites like Reddit, Quora, forums, etc., assuming link building is relevant to the topic.

As a rule of thumb, use the 80/20 rule and 10-20% of the pages on a site should me pillar/skyscraper and the rest of the pages being short 350-600 word articles to fill out the site and support and promote the 10-20%. With 80-90% of the promotion/linking efforts going to the 10-20% pillar/skyscraper pages.

IOW, give people pages they want to see, read, share and link to.

Of course, this is for content markting. If you have sales letters on a site, optin forms, drive traffic with paid ads, etc, disregard this strategy. Wink

I have read a few pages on the internet and elsewhere (cannot remember where tho)
about skyscraper pages found that very interesting.  But I not really tried to be professional about it nor have i tried using
this new information.

Thanks so much kurt for your detailed explanation  on pillar pages and taking the extra time.  I really am glad to know this!!! I can't tell you.

Another benefit of these types of pages is they also create months of social media content and links. How many tweets to you think he can get from this page? And each has a link back to his page.
