Dear Members,

Recently, I taken a project of site building.

  • Took the domain
  • Posted the unique content
  • Backlinking

While doing Backlinks , I used the wikipedia to create them, no other backlinks are there otherthan from wikipedia. And I got 2 wikipedia links (PR5) are live to the 2 different posts in the website. And all of them are on page 1 for that keyword. But unfortunately, there are lesser searches for them.

Now I would like to know that, "does these 2 links are helpful to increase the page rank and SERP of the website to any keyword?"

Wikipedia links are nofollow, so they won't pass any page rank to your site.


On the other hand, if the Wikipedia article is of high quality, and is relevant to your target audience, you might get a lot of referrals from it. At least, that's my experience. I have a page on one of my sites that gets more traffic from a Wikipedia link than from any other source.


But if the link is not particularly relevant to the article - if it was placed there merely in the hope of getting traffic - there's a good chance it will be removed by one of the editors.
