How to do this Growth Hack and what can it do for you?

We all agree that Wikipedia is huge.

The site dominates the top three places in search engine results for many keywords, topics, or major themes.

For example, for the term Growth Hacking, Wikipedia has the first place in the ranking in Google's results.

Let's see how to use dead links and Wikipedia to our advantage.

Expected results of this Growth Hack

  • Growth Hack Type: Detecting dead links and creating backlinks on Wikipedia
  • Expected result: Increase in the number of high authority backlinks to our website

Why do this Growth Hack?

This growth hack consists of getting a link from an article in your niche to your site.

While all Wikipedia links are “no-follow,” it's essential to try to get a link from an important piece of content in your niche in Wikipedia.

Before we go any further, let's confirm what we mean by “no-follow” and “do-follow.”

The verbose nature of these terms indicates what they do. If the site that links to yours wants to pass on its “juice” or SEO authority to yours, it won't add the “no-follow” attribute.

If there are no attributes, consider that the links are “do-follow”.

All Wikipedia links to quotations and sources are “no-follow,” but you'll get a ton of clicks from users from a citation link (based solely on how much traffic Wikipedia gets).

From Google's point of view, It's good to have a mix of “do-follow” and “no-follow” links because it shows natural growth occurrences.

How do you do this Growth Hack?

So how do you find dead links on Wikipedia to suggest our own?

Finding dead links on Wikipedia

1) Use Google Dorks

If you don't know what Google Dorks are, here's an article you might be interested in: Finding leads using Google Dorks.

site:en.wikipedia.org “your keyword (s)” intext:” dead link”

Here are the results below:

2) Use WikiGrabber (mainly for results in English)

The answer is by using this tool: WikiGrabber, and here is the URL: www.webfx.com/seo-tools/wikigrabber

Attention, this tool is efficient for finding links on wikipedia.org and not the French version fr.wikipedia.org

Suggest your links in place of dead links

Once you've typed in the keywords you want and you've found dead links in Wikipedia pages that have “dead links,” you can suggest your own link.

For this:

  1. Create an account on Wikipedia.
  2. Fill out your profile
  3. Do not hesitate to create content without links in articles in your niche so as not to be immediately spotted as a SPAM account that only creates backlinks.
  4. Then replace in pages with dead links

Not sure what type of content to put in place?

To reproduce the value from the last link, go to archive.org To see what the content looked like, replicate it on your site and try to get your link published.
