My website is occasionally able to outrank Wikipedia on relatively obscure article titles. But, as others have pointed out, try it on "inflation" or "kidney", and good luck with that. I'm thinking 80% of SEOs are deluding themselves. Why doesn't SEO Roundtable or Webmaster World take the next step -- select a batch of asteroids that rank #1 in Google from Wikipedia (e.g., 588 Achilles), put 'em in a hat, and let the SEOs each take ownership of an asteroid and do battle to get "their" asteroid page to #1 on Google. They could each pitch in $50, and winner takes all.
