There has been some discussion about this in Google News and it's all new to me.

How does one write for it and can you put in links to outside sites that give more information on topics?

Is this a possible way to bring more visitors to your site?

To write for it just click edit on any page and start writing.

You can add links.

However, what you write can be edited by anyone, and they can also remove your links. Those active in certain sections are very fast to remove any spammy content or links.

It looks as if you can write articles. Is that something different or do you just write an article and insert it in the topic?

You can edit an exiting article, by clicking on the edit links within the article (if any), or on the edit this page link on top.

If you go to the help section you will see a link to how start a new article. Basically you enter its name and then put it in.

Bear in mind it will be editable by anyone, at any time, forever.

I get nice traffic from a link on wikipedia...the page is only PR4, though, so that's just a decent boost.

At least it's from a trusted neighborhood, eh?

it's a good idea, but beware of posting too many links on wiki, especially in similar topics, i have some up and am getting good traffic from them.

maybe you should write content on something that isn't that common in order to put a link on wiki?

seems like a good idea to get targeted traffic without a lot of competition.

ps... if an editor or someone at wiki suspects you of putting too much up at once they will delete all of your postings and potentially ban your IP from editing the wiki wiki wiki (jam on it)....
