The Fastest & Easiest Way To Get Wikipedia Backlinks

Wikipedia is one of the biggest, oldest and most authoritative websites on the internet which makes  Wikipedia backlinks one of the most powerful links on the planet.

It’s hard to do a Google search for any term that doesn’t list Wikipedia in the top 10.

But are Wikipedia backlinks still as effective today as they used to be?

Well let me tell you, they sure are!

The site, the traffic and the authority isn’t going anywhere in the near future. So there is a lot to be gained from Wikipedia backlinks.

And in this article I’m going to show you how to build as many Wikipedia backlinks you want, using just a few simple techniques.

As well as another very sneaky link building trick to get links from authority sites.

So if you want to build unlimited links that put your site on the map, read on…

Why Should You Be Building Links With Wikipedia?

Wikipedia shows up in the search results for most terms. It‘s a seriously authoritative site and building links from them is a strong endorsement for your site.

Google loves links from Wikipedia and they should since real moderators review the links which is why you should build links from them.

Over the last few years I’ve found an easy way to build Wikipedia backlinks that is simple and effective.

Not only that but with my personal twist you’ll also get links and traffic from other authoritative sites as well!

 A Wikipedia link will actually generate very relevant traffic to your website.

Because the entire site is focused on delivering high quality information on a specific search term to their readers. Whether that’s information about:

The best bit? If your site is linked from a Wikipedia page it will generate additional links from other websites looking to use your site as a reference!

So Wikipedia isn’t only a backlink, it’s a traffic generating, natural backlink generating machine! And is a worthy place of spending your time.

In the next section I’m going to talk you through the three main types of links we’ll be looking to build in Wikipedia.

Wikipedia Link Building 101: What Are You Looking For?

Building links in Wikipedia isn’t as simple as saying…

“Hey, my article is better than that dudes! I want to be featured there instead.”

The way to build links in Wikipedia, although it’s easy, needs to be done tactically.

That means there are three opportunities to build links that you’re looking for:

  • Dead link opportunities
  • Broken link opportunities
  • Unique link opportunities

Let’s take a look at what each of these is and how you identify them for your own site.

The Dead Link Opportunity

By Wikipedia’s definition a Dead link is used to describe a link that is no longer active. Meaning that the content that was once on the other side of the link isn’t there anymore.

wikipedia link example

This indicates to Wikipedia moderators that the link needs to be fixed or updated.

 And your content could be just the link that they’re looking for.
Wikipedia is just like any other website. Because there are so many links, hundreds of them are broken and almost impossible to keep on top of in real time.

So your opportunity for building links here comes in the form of providing them with the content they need to fill that link. Simple, eh?

The Broken Link Opportunity

One of the more white hat link building tactics is to scour the web looking for broken links.

But that is super time consuming and can often result in a lot of work for not a lot of outcome.

broken Wikipedia backlink search

However if you’re a savvy SEO, you’ll have realised that if the link is broken on Wikipedia it is broken for all the sites that link to it as well.

Meaning from one broken link you can find anywhere from five to five thousand link building opportunities, depending on the niche and the topic.

If you don’t have the content for the broken link yet, don’t worry, we’ll explore that later in the article.

The Unique Link Opportunity

Everyone is able to create a Wikipedia account.

And that means you have access to creating your own link building opportunities on specific Wikipedia pages.

In theory I could go in and edit this page on keyword research and add in my own links to my own articles in the relevant sections.

This would be by adding new content that improves the overall structure and information on the Wikipedia page. Whether it’s a new sentence, paragraph or entirely new section.

guest post example

But I don’t recommend you just do that. Simply because all links from Wikipedia have to be approved by moderators. So if a page suddenly has five new links all pointing to one Wikipedia page, there’s a good chance you’re going to get caught out.

Instead you should go in and do your duty as a good Wikipedia citizen and update content, repair broken links and add new findings where possible.

Then if your article happens to be one of the ones included then that’s a good result for everyone involved.

The Sweet Spot: Putting All Of These Opportunities Together

If you combine the dead link, broken link and unique link opportunities you have a flexible, easy to manage Wikipedia backlink building strategy.

You can:

  • Use dead links to build Wikipedia backlinks
  • Use broken links to get links from authority sites
  • Include your own unique links in a Wikipedia page

If you can replicate this with four or five pages, the amount of links you’ll be able to build with targeted, relevant pages keeps growing.

This approach makes it really easy to get some serious link juice & relevant traffic!

But this leads us to an important question, how do you find all of these link opportunities?

Well there’s a really simple, free, solution for that…

How To Use WikiGrabber To Get Wikipedia Backlinks

The best tool for finding link building opportunities with Wikipedia is WikiGrabber.

The tool has been updated in recent years and is really powerful:


All you have to do is enter a search term and the site will come back with a list of related pages on Wikipedia that either need a reference or have a deadlink.

It is really easy to use but let me step you through the process…

The Step-by-Step Guide To Using WikiGrabber

All you have to do is enter a relevant search query to your niche, for example I could use SEO, online marketing, link building or social media etc.

In this example I’m going to do a search for the term search engine:

wikigrabber search engine

This returns a list of pages on Wikipedia that are related to search engines but need citations or broken links fixing.

wikigrabber results

By default you will see results that need citations first and dead links second, but you can click on the buttons at the top to filter them accordingly.

I can see that this page on Wikipedia needs citations and has a broken link:

bing dead link

All I have to do then is go over to the page and press ctrl+f to open up a find box and type in either citation needed or dead link to find where they are.

Then you’ll see the result at the end of the page:

 Simple and easy!
Sometimes WikiGrabber doesn’t update in real-time, so it helps to find a lot of pages and search for these opportunities too. Just in case your vacancy has already been filled.

How To Use Google To Get Wikipedia Backlinks

If WikiGrabber doesn’t seem like your kind of tool (for whatever reason) all is not lost. You can use good old Google to find your dead links too.

Just head over to Google and use this advanced query: “Keyword phrase” “dead link”

If I use this for a similar category to above, search engines, I’m greeting with a lot of pages showing a dead link:

advanced query

By clicking on one I’m able to use the exact same ctrl+f method to find the dead link. Like so:

dead link peer to peer

This method is just as simple, but you’ll have to do a little more work on finding the relevant pages. But it’s there if you need it.

So now you know how to find the broken link opportunities, let’s look at how you can get the actual links for yourself…

Wikipedia Link Building In Action (And How To Do It Yourself)

Now you’re armed with a Wikipedia link building tool – be it WikiGrabber or Google Advanced Search – let’s look at a specific example, selected at random – Binoculars.

If I run this through WikiGrabber you will find a bunch of pages about binoculars that feature broken links:

binoculars result

I’m going to choose this option because it’s hyper-relevant to the binoculars niche (based on zero experience with binoculars):

eyepiece result

And in the page we can confirm that, yes, it does have a dead link:

dead link eyepiece

Now copy and paste the URL and head over to the Wayback Machine tool.

Copy the link into the search bar and hit go:

eyeglass wayback machine

This will show us what the page used to look like before it was taken down. Have a read of the content to see if it’s related to your website.

If it is relevant to your site you either need to:

  • Find content that you’ve created which could fill this hole
  • Create the content that fits

You can even just rewrite the content that shows up in the Wayback Machine if that really floats your boat.

And if it’s not relevant, keep following these steps until you find something that is relevant.

But let’s say for argument’s sake that it is relevant to your site.

Here comes the really fun part…

Take the dead link and run it through a tool like Ahrefs, Majestic or SERPed to see all of the backlinks pointing to it.

As you can see with this one there are 34 links and 14 domains pointing in its direction:

backlinks content

30 or more is a good number of links to have because it means it’s worth the effort. Why?

Because it’s a topic people want or need to link to.

It gives you a lot of options of webmasters to write to (success rates aren’t always high) and it means it’s worth investing your time in creating the content should you need to.

And because this link needs updating,  it’s time for you to swoop in and make it happen.

Either create a new page as I mentioned earlier or update your existing content to fit.

Make sure it ticks all of the boxes that a Wikipedia page would need to use this blog post as a reference.

Then you want to export the list of websites from Ahrefs that currently link to the dead link and look up all of the contact details. A tool like Hunter can help you with that.

Then you can send an outreach email to each of those to let them know about the broken link and your potential replacement.

If you’re stuck for an email to send to a webmaster you can use my own template below:

How To Add Your Own Unique Links To Wikipedia

On your search for dead links you’ll come across some pages that are a real mess. They’ll have been flagged by Wikipedia to be improved but nobody has gotten around to it yet.

These are perfect opportunities for you to add your own unique external links.

For example take a look at this page on language barriers:

language barrier wikipedia

The Wikipedia Moderators are just crying out for you to come in and improve that page. And, well…sprinkle it with a few external links for your time.

If you’re running a language learning blog, for example, you could come in and create this page newly. Finding all of the resources you need to turn this page into an encyclopedia page.

You could even rework the content you’ve written afterwards to create a blog post for your own blog, hitting two birds with one stone.

In this section let’s look at how you can capitalize here and generate some wonderful backlinks for your site.

Creating And Preparing Your Wikipedia Account

Anyone can create a Wikipedia account – it is 100% free.

Just click on Create Account in the top right corner of the site:

create wiki account

Once you have created your account I recommend going into the Wikipedia article you’ve found and adding citations, cleaning up dead links and using other people’s sites and content. (Feel free to use my blog to update articles – contact me if you do).

Let’s say you’re aiming for a 70-80% clean up of the page, leaving just enough room to add details from your site in there.

Once those changes are approved, you’re now ready to drop a link to your site on your target Wikipedia article.

Things To Consider Before You Add Your Links

Before we start editing Wikipedia and updating it with our citation/link fix there are a couple of things to think about.

First of all when you submit the edit, it will need to pass human moderation so you have to take that into consideration.

If you’re just throwing out a link to a site with poor quality content that has nothing to do with the required citation or dead link fix it is not going to get approved.

So if you don’t have relevant content on your site to use as a citation/reference already then put some time and effort into creating it.

Basically just because you have a blog post about learning Chinese, it doesn’t mean you get to drop it anywhere.

Editing An Article To Insert Your Wikipedia Backlink

Editing an article on Wikipedia is super easy, just find what you want to edit and click on the edit link.


Once you have done that you will be taken to the Wikipedia editor.

Make sure you are logged into your account then fix the dead link or add your citation as required:

wikipedia editor

Once you have done that preview the changes and make sure everything is working ok.

If you are happy with it fill out the edit summary with your changes and click on save page:

wikipedia summary

Now just sit back and wait to see if your change is approved! If you spent time creating your account with a bit of history (they log your IP address) you won’t have a problem here.

Wrapping It Up

Phew! There you have it. Exactly how to build unlimited links with Wikipedia in a small space of time.

But let’s take a minute to recap everything you’ve learned so you can replicate it again, and again, and again in the future:

Building links with Wikipedia is effective and comes with lots of benefits outside of just having a link on their site, including relevant traffic and backlink opportunities with other sites.

There are three types of opportunities you should be looking for:

  • Dead links: Marked by Wikipedia these links are no longer on the internet
  • Broken links: These are the links of third party sites that were also linking to that page
  • Unique links: Your chance to place your own links in Wikipedia pages

Finding these links is super easy, you can either do it through Google searches looking for dead links or using the WikiGrabber tool.

Having a tool like Ahrefs, SEMRush or SERPed allows you to find the broken links on other sites that were also pointing to that article. You can then contact the webmaster to add your content in its place.

And to create unique links you need to have your own Wikipedia account to add them in. But remember to be a good citizen and not just spam your own links in there. Add one of your own links for every 10 or 12 you include in a page.

Now all that’s left to do is to get high quality links on Wikipedia for your website!

Let me know how you get on with this strategy in the comments…

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make a link on Wikipedia?
To add a link on a Wikipedia page, all you have to do is put the full URL inside a set of single brackets. Leave a space and type the text you want as the anchor.

For example: [ Matthew Woodward].

Are Wikipedia links NoFollow?
Wikipedia links are all NoFollow links however having a mixture of DoFollow and NoFollow makes a more natural-looking link profile.

As Wikipedia is one of the biggest websites with an Ahrefs DR of 91, you should be including them in your link building strategy.

Are NoFollow backlinks good?
To ensure Google sees a natural-looking link profile you must make sure you have a mixture of dofollow and nofollow links pointing to your website.

So nofollow backlinks are good because they help give your backlink profile the right balance.

The same rules apply with nofollow links… large sites with high authority, like Wikipedia are perfect sites to obtain nofollow links

Is Wikipedia good for SEO?
An important thing Google looks for are the links coming from large trusted websites like Wikipedia.

Wikipedia is a relevant resource that’s highly trusted due to their strict views on spam or using their website with commercial intent, making them good for SEO.

    I think that the authority of the site and its trust is also related to how long the attention of viewers is kept and how many of them return to the site. I have such conclusions after I started writing longer content – that it may also matter.

  8. Richard

    How good is your content man.. Excellent! Make more articles about how to build links other than guest posts… Links we can make for ourselves like this example.. I’m sure you know others.

    A very nice list of ways to build links. I think link building is an important aspect if we want to grow the traffic. But i think content should be given more importance especially if the blog is new. Without content links would do no good.

    This list however gives almost everything that one can do for link building. Advice’s from shoutmeloud are always good which is also proved by the fact that articles of shoutmeloud always rank top of the google search, this article too was ranked first.

    Thanks for this comprehensive and wonderful list.

    Hello, thank you for great information! I just have two questions:
    1) Is it OK to add reference link with official document pdf which is not embed into my site, I mean like /official_document.pdf. There is no visible header of my page, no home page link, but I guess its still good for SEO? I think it looks more serious to verify as it would be with my header menu linking to products.
    2) Is it the same goodness for SEO if I manage to add my site’s link into other language Wikipedia (small country’s). Or does en.wikipedia. org ranking better than let’s say bg.wikipedia. org?

    Hi Matthew. I also tried to do the same thing for citation.
    I added a chart to my post and a short paragraph about the chart, which is relevant to the paragraph that needs citation. But after few hours I came back and checked the original Wikipedia link, my link was removed.
    Do you know how to make sure my content meets their requirement to be used as a source?

    • Matthew Woodward
      July 12th, 2017 at 1:36 pm

  232. Matt LaClear

    Matt, your posts rock, but then again, you already know that. It’s smart to take it slow and easy on Wikipedia with a 25:1 edit ratio where you’re only placing a link to your own one time out of every 25 edits. Moderators show more grace when they consider you a legit editor. Super golden tactic, helping others before you help yourself, very solid tactic.

    • Matthew Woodward
      April 14th, 2017 at 8:47 am

    I think the key is to create relevant content that you are going to link to on Wikipedia. It’s pretty easy to spot linkspam and mods won’t have trouble identifying what is not benefiting the wikipedia article. Excellent article Matthew, thank for sharing these ideas.

      April 14th, 2017 at 9:01 am

      Yes you have to pay close to attention to quality

    I had always thought only about the wikipedia link itself but the sneaky trick of gaining the other backlinks is genius.

    I have been building up my editing reputaiton on Wikipedia so going to try this one soon!

    Recently, you have been dishing out more on relevant ways to harness free traffic. I really gained a lot from the Tynt blast. I am moving right away to check up on this.

    Thanks men, you made my day

    Mathew My Brother, you just ruined Wikipedia! Now all these so called SEO experts are gonna destroy the authenticity of Wikipedia for their own gain, and the contributors will have to work doubly hard to fix most of these spammy edits. I like what you do here Matt, but if you could leave a short summary on the ethics of doing these changes on the Wikipedia page, it definitely impact the spammers. Thank You! Keep up the good work.

    This is very informative sir thanks for the efforts i want to ask you that how many links will be safe from wikipedia for one site? I still made one link and it giving me good traffic. But some people said getting so many links from wikipedia for one site is not worthy. Should i made more links for my site or not?
    waiting for your reply sir.

      In traffic terms, more is better. In SEO terms, 1 is enough.

    Matthew when you have done a link how do you know if it is going to stick or be removed by another monitor. Is there any auto way of checking if the link still exists or has been accepted please?

    • Matthew Woodward
      April 14th, 2017 at 9:16 am

      Just check it manually or put it in your link monitoring tool

  244. Martin T.

    I’ve got 3 backlinks from Wikipedia the last couple of years, with for me, very importent words.
    And it sure helps in ranking. The first one, gave me an i#1 in google pretty fast, and without much more seo on that word, im still no. 1 and competing out official sites!!

    Having tried this myself, I know that Wikipedia does not allow external links unless the web content is from a physical book published by an independent publishing house (i.e. not self-published).

    I inquired about adding an external link in Wikipedia to my website on energy-bodies (, which has far better information on the subject than other available sources. But this was denied, the explanation being that Wikipedias rules ONLY allow links to information that is in an independently-published book.

    So this is CANNOT be done in practice.

      April 14th, 2017 at 9:17 am

      That is not true at all, never ask before you do.

    I’ve been doing this slowly for years. As a suggestion, make 5 normal edits for every link you put in and make sure you do links to normal places as well. Just like a PBN article. 3 authority links for every money link.

    So realistically make 5 edits, make a link edit. Every 3 link edits, add one of your own links.

  250. Karim Toulba

    That’s so awesome.
    Thanks a lot for sharing such tutorial.

    I’ve been so soaked recently in creating backlinks for my site. And wow! I’m kind of able to get Wikipedia backlinks?! I think I still should work hard for it.

    Thanks again,

      Don’t forget about important things like building your email list!

  251. Gcampton

    To say Wikipedia links are as effective as they ever were is simply not true. I used to rank high competition local clients on page one, doing nothing but a single wiki link. For instance (Skip bins + Major Capital City).

    Nowadays they are not completely useless, however they don’t hold as nearly as much PR weight as they did back in 2011. I will generally try to get one or two links per client starting out. But I never see big jumps in serps like I used to.

    • Matthew Woodward
      April 14th, 2017 at 9:21 am

      Are you sure that in 2011 there wasn’t less competition? SEO has become much more competitive in recent times

      • Gcampton
        April 14th, 2017 at 11:42 pm

        Yeah, possibly. But they used to seem SUPER powerful now they don’t seem to make a huge difference. Hard to tell.

    Thanks for sharing Wikigrabber, but unfortunately it only works with the English Wikipedia site. What I do is to search on Google for:

    mykeyword “enlace roto”

    This works fine for the Spanish Wikipedia, if anyone wants to use it on another language you have to change the subdomain and the broken link text to the equivalent on your language.

    regardless of the finding the dead link part that someone suggested does not work, you can still take advantage of this, my question is – the sites you link out to, wouldn’t it look suspect if you’re linking out to a site with some form of commercial intent?

    • Matthew Woodward
      February 25th, 2017 at 8:46 am

      Yes you should not link to any page that has commercial intent
