Wikipedia Sets Up A Campaign To Improve Its Coverage Of Indigenous Peoples

Wikipedia has started a campaign aimed at increasing its coverage of indigenous people. This campaign has been necessitated by the little content about this important group of people in the history of America. Despite everyone being in a position to add and edit a Wiki page to the site, it has been noted that information on renowned Native Americans such as Esther Belin, a multimedia artist and poet, can hardly be found on the site. The new campaign will see the participants of the annual Wiki Conference North America attend an Indigenous People’s Day event this October. This is aimed at inspiring many contributors and editors to create more contents on not only Native People, but also other minority groups in the United States. Such tactics have worked in the past. For instance, Wikipedia has been able to encourage more female editors and contributors to join the system and increase contents on women. More efforts have been channeled towards improving literature materials on black people and life sciences. This situation makes Wikipedia confident that it will be able to achieve the objective of its campaign.

Although many Wikipedia contributors are individuals, companies such as GetYourWiki.com have been significant contributors to the site. The company creates, edits, and manages wiki pages on behalf of its clients at affordable rates. When a firm or an individual hires Get Your Wiki’s services, the company does all the research on the person and creates a page that has factual and accurate information. Such pages are crucial as wiki pages usually rank higher in Google results, thus enabling companies and individuals to promote their brands. With its monitoring services, the enterprise will ensure that any Wikipedia revisions made to the pages by other editors are correct. Any defaced page will be quickly reverted to its previous content to ensure that no damages are made. The company can also translate the pages to any of the major international languages.

Their experienced in-house editors ensure that the information about an individual is precise and truthful. It adds credibility and prestige to a brand, and increases sales. Another important factor is the increased visibility and ranking of a business or individual in search engine results when they have a wiki page.
