Wikipedia will give you no-follow backlink but still you would get the more worth than no-follow link because Wikipedia is a highly connected source from Google so getting no follow backlinks from it will increase your search ranking juice and boost up your post stamina to stand out on the first page.
Here in this article, I am going to share two methods with you for Wikipedia Backlink Strategy that is mentioned below.
1. Dead Link StrategyDead link strategy is an easy strategy for everyone to get some decent amount of backlinks on every article but it all goes to your effort or smart work so read the whole article with meditation. In this strategy, you have to find some dead link similar or related to your niche then replace it with your own link but for this, you will have to do some little research and yeah the smart work in order to gain more quality backlinks from the same dead link.
First of all, open the online site WikiGrabber from which you can easily find dead links which would be related to your niche. So first search any main keyword of your post as shown below in image here I use the keyword “Backlinks”.
There, you will see the screen in which some links would be present with citation need the yellow box, so simply click on dead links as shown in the image below and open any link which is similar or related to your niche in a new tab.
Then, install the Check My Links Extension on your Google Chrome Browser.
After installing refresh, the new tab Wikipedia page and once click the Check My Link icon at your extension bar (top right corner) and you would see the page like below in image so scroll the page and find the red highlighted link and note down their reference number i.e. in below image reference number is 8.
So edit the ref link and replace it with your post link that you wanted to give instead of a dead link as shown in below image.
2. ATRL (Asked Replacement Link) MethodThis method would be a bonus point method for you because from a little smart work you can get lots of FREE high authority backlinks so let me tell you that how you can do that.
When you found the dead link so paste the main URL of that link on Ahrefs and download the CSV file of inbound links via Export and then write an email as a notification to the webmaster which is still giving the do follow backlink to the dead link that “this xyz.com/link has dead or no more and I would be very happy if you replace that link with that yourweb.com/link in which totally fresh and updated content is present and will be helpful for your readers to spare their precious time on that page”.
It’s just the example message which I wrote here for just explaining to you that how you can get tons of HQ backlinks from a single dead link. So you can send the better and impressive mail to the webmaster and don’t forget to do the smart work which is very necessary for this ATRL method.
