Don’t Be Taken In.
Scams are endemic when doing business online: from the Nigerian prince to the endless phonecalls from ‘Google’ (hint: it’s NEVER Google), I thought I’d seen them all. But this one is new to me: selling Wikipedia pages.
For those that don’t know, Wikipedia is free and open to be edited by ANYBODY. Consider that the first black mark against these guys: charging $699 for a page that you could perfectly well build yourself for NOTHING is a pretty poor deal, wouldn’t you say? But there’s an even larger problem.
From Wikipedia’s faq concerning organizations:
May I advertise my organization or its campaigns, clients, products, services or leading individuals on Wikipedia?
No. Wikipedia is not a place for you to post promotional material for your services, products or to promote any other cause. While a list of the notable services your organization provides might be appropriate, such a list should only include those that are a part of the primary mission and are necessary to adequately describe the organization. Our policy on neutral point of view mandates that promotional material and advertising be removed. Advertising may be in addition considered spam and will likely lead to blocking or even banning.
In layman’s terms – business pages are not allowed unless the relevance of the business concerned can be deemed to be of general public interest. Promotional pages of any sort are not allowed.
In other words – the business page you would be paying 700 bucks to have created is not allowed on Wikipedia, and will almost certainly be removed.
TL/DR: Don’t pay for a wikipedia page about your business!
