Wikipedia is an encyclopedia where anyone and everyone can share their work, which includes, all sorts of articles, pages, information and knowledge. One can find all sorts of topics and subjects being covered on Wikipedia starting from basic, subject knowledge, science to information on entertainment and music and even content marketing, if the promotion and marketing is done indirectly. Wikipedia is a source of verifiable information that covers anything and everything that you can possibly think about. It covers a wide variety of topics encompassing various subjects and fields.
Mostly people approach a Wikipedia consultant or a consultancy firm or agency to create pages, edit and publish information on pages or articles. Well, there are some common reasons for this.
Innovation in technology
If you have come up or invented something new or revolutionized the way technology is used or have discovered something that wasn’t already discovered. Keep in mind, advancements and breakthroughs in all the fields are eligible here from medicine to electronics and even entertainment.
A famous personality or company
In order to Create a Wikipedia page , you first need to pass a “notability test” which is conducted by the Wikipedia editors. This is simply to determine whether the subject or person in question warrants a Wikipedia page. If you’re an entity or someone who is the founder of a company that has made a major breakthrough in any field than you might be a viable candidate, for example the first man to walk on the moon or a very famous leader.
However, it is not necessary that the nobility is purely based on fame, popularity and importance. It is not necessary but it may highly increase the chances of acceptability of a certain subject. The main criteria would be to meet all the general notability guidelines provided. In simple words, if you want a Wikipedia page or your information on a Wikipedia page than it must be verified and should meet the notability guidelines or the criteria outlined in a subject specific guideline.
If you can’t find any information
about a certain topic or technology in Wikipedia
Most Wikipedia consultants and writers normally look for topics like these, on which there is no information available previously. They use this as an opportunity to create a page for their clients.
Guidelines and policies
Wikipedia has no firm rules and regulations instead it has policies and guidelines which are subject to evolve over time.
Content is free to use
All the content and information in Wikipedia is free for everyone to use, edit and distribute. None of the work shared here is copyrighted. Editors are expected not to plagiarize and borrowing paid media content is sometimes allowed in case there are no free.
the other advantage of using a wiki is that it is easily accessible from any part of the world as long as there is a good web connection. When a user wants to go on vacation, they do not have to be concerned with travelling with huge files. They can use the wiki to access all their information.
Control of information
each edit or update of Wikipedia information is recorded in the wiki software. If wrong information is edited, the software can easily revert the changes to the previous version.
Open source software
