Do you have a Wikipedia page?1204

It came to mind today that many authors do have a Wikipedia page and that opportunity is open to most businesses.

Although I have not capitalized on it, has anyone else?

Not me. It's about 113 on my to do list.

Here is a search I did in Wikipedia - there are several people here that have placed their own page.

I just did a bit of research and it is against Wikipedia's guidelines to create an article about your own business or yourself.

Perhaps we could publish for each other?

What would you do with your own Wikipedia page?

Well, @Belew I suppose I would fill it full of useful information that would excite people so much they couldn't help but to rush over and buy my books 😜

Seriously, whenever I search anything I have noticed that Wikipedia features in the top five results. This is my prime motive.

Ok - let's put together a plan to get each other on Wikipedia

We need a template and a good example to follow

@SusanDay

Wikipedia will be happy. You still have to get them off W and to your site.

may as well get them to come to you directly instead of making a stop on the way.

How does one create a Wikipedia page about themselves without getting banned for being too "self-promotional"?

@lunar_ranger

You get someone else to do it for you.

What happened / is happening with the effort of creating a round-table of sorts to get ppl creating Wikipedia pages?

@Belew

Would you like to set something up and we can start the process?

I am away from Friday to Monday this weekend - let's shoot for Wednesday or Thursday next week to get the system started.

Count me in. Should we have a set list of questions / information to follow? I suppose we could use another author's example. Also, I am writing a series of books. Do you think I should have a page for that, as well?

@SusanDay

I think we should stick to profiles to start, the book series does belong to you, so make it a part of your list.

Perhaps we can all take a look at other wikipages for our own genre of doing business and make notes.

The best way is to write your own then give it to the group to post parts and pieces.

Thanks for taking charge of this.

I have quite a few things going on and haven't been able to put my energy into this idea. Though I do think it has merit.

How's this coming along?

Is it looking like it's worthwhile? Not?
