Frequently asked questions about wikipedia
Is it a free/paid directory?
It is a free directory where no fees are charged for either searching, adding or editing any article content.
Does it have listing specific to categories or location?
The listings can be considered to have divided categorically on the basis of titles and language. The location, however, plays no role here in the listing criterion. Any content can be read from anywhere except for few exception, and these being, in some countries, certain content of Wikipedia might be restricted according to the restriction laws of that country.
Does it contain premium listings?
No. There are no premium listings. All articles are basically written and edited by anonymous writers worldwide, and no article is under the premium listing. However, it is accused of Wikipedia of having favorable articles about the famous and political personalities who make hefty “donations” to the website, but who knows…?
Can we do display ads in this directory?
The Wikipedia has never hosted any sponsored article or advertisement on its page. It has other ways of earning revenue, but the option of advertisements has not been ruled out entirely forever.
Can we add a business description like keywords, Metas, year, employee count, payment methods, menu cards, etc.?
If the article happens to be about your business, you can add whatever you want. The articles are generally descriptive, so no such specific keywords are needed. Furthermore, it is advised to give an appropriate title to the article such that it is different from another similar article of the same title.
Does it have a verification process for adding or editing a business?
Not really. The website only asks for creation of the account, to have the source of articles pin marked, but otherwise, no verification process is done for adding or editing an article
