Many scholars and researchers seek to avoid Wikipedia as a source, but a 2005 study by the journal Nature found Wikipedia nearly as accurate as the venerable Encyclopedia Britannica.

However, with Wikipedia only a click away, its ease of use and accessibility has made it the go-to online resource for finding more about just about anything.

According to Search Engine Watch, Wikipedia appears on the first page of Google results in 99% of all searches. For that reason, it’s important that you or your brand are shown in a positive light on Wikipedia. Wikipedia reputation management involves creating a Wikipedia page and updating and maintaining your Wikipedia page. It’s a unique undertaking because anyone can edit most Wiki pages, meaning you’ll need to monitor what you’ve published and counteracted any negative edits with facts and information supported by reliable, published sources.
The first step in Wikipedia reputation management is creating a Wikipedia page for your business before someone else does. If it is edited by others, know that links to negative reviews and pages could now be referenced on your Wiki page. Furthermore, negative content could now appear on page one. Wikipedia reputation management involves creating a brand-representative Wiki page, monitoring edits that are made to your page, and then highlighting and publishing positive material to your Wikipedia page.
The English Wikipedia includes 6,165,771 articles and averages 598 new articles per day. Updates are common on Wikipedia. In fact, more than one billion edits have taken place so far. To update information on Wikipedia, simply find the article you wish to edit. Click EDIT. Make your desired changes. Click PUBLISH after you preview the changes you’ve made. Write a summary of your edits for readers and future editors.
It’s important that your Wikipedia page accurately represent you or your business because it is highly visible on Page 1 of Google. If you allow your business Wikipedia page to go unmonitored, it could be harming your reputation, and you would not even know it. If, however, you regularly scrutinize and update your Wiki page, or hire an online reputation management company to help, your business will become more visible, its reputation will be enhanced, and SEO will improve.
