      What a stupid statement. Of course it is!

      Although I haven't beaten Wikipedia yet. If you invest enough time and get quality back links + spot on on-page SEO you definitely can beat them.

    It is of course possible to beat Wikipedia. They are not no1 for every non brand term anyone has ever searched for are they.

      If you are not sure how to take one of my comments or suggestions, please choose the option of most offensive and degrading, as that is clearly what I intended.

      yea, you can beat the wiki article...
      It took me six months and 200,000 backlinks (according to GWT), on a new domain.
      In one of the most competitive niches...
      almost all of the BLs are profile, with some EDU/GOV/directories for good measure...
      I did have to use linkwheels, pyramids and press releases too..

        wow, that's impressive. is your site a new site? 200,000 links seem to be risk for google suspect.

          site is eight months old with some aged domains 301 to it

          I think another thing that got me BL volume was submitting the RSS feed to 1000s of places...

    If you dont want to beat wikipeadia but still want to get traffic from search engine is to make your title more catchy by putting best or something similar at the first title of your page

    I beat them with a few keywords. It takes a lot of work, but it is worth it.
