Is not enough with the top positions they got on every place on earth (not to mention the other commercial cousin).....now they start a new project the "wikivoyage". What's the point and the reason behind it? any ideas?

It's not a "new" project.
They have imported the entire "wikitravel" site - at least several months ago.
It remains to be seen whether editors stay with wikitravel, move to wikivoyage or continue to edit both.
Whatever happens, their content will diverge; err, already has, as many of the edits made at wikitravel in the last 3 or 4 months have not been made at wikivoyage. However, the number of edits per day now being made at wikivoyage is far greater than had previously been made at wikitravel.

wonder how one page of limited content overranks mega sites dedicated to the place, really when google will rank fair both wiki and wikitravel/voyage not for the links or "authority" but for the content? and by the way how can be an authority articles written by anonymous editor/s.....
