I have a query that having waikipedia Profile for company is helpful in SEO?
please be clear you have wikipedia user profile or you have page for your company in wikipedia.
Yes, if you have authentic wiki page then it will surely drive a lots of traffic to your website.
Wikipedia is trusted site in the Google’s eyes, it is also a great source of traffic.
If there is a compelling reason for you or your company to have a Wikipedia page, then, yes, it can help. However, because, as addialex said, Wikipedia is a trusted site, many website owners believe they can create a Wikipedia page for SEO purposes just to get links for their website. In most cases, very few people have heard of them, and/or they have done nothing newsworthy or notable, so no one cares. In the vast majority of cases, therefore, a Wkikpedia page is neither desired nor helpful.
Your Wikipedia post can’t sound like an advertisement for your company. It has to be free of opinion. Never advertise or write anything that sounds promotional. You can not write any promotion content about your company in Wikipedia because it is against Wikipedia rules and guidelines. Another important point is that your company also should be notable to have Wikipedia page.
If you want to take SEO advantage to creating your company profile page on Wikipedia you need to know few things before you do so
Links on Wikipedia are no follow links and it will not pass any link juice.
One is not permitted to add links that they are directly associated with.
In case there is excessive linking to a specific website without relevance, then that website can be added as spam.
The content that is written must be neutral and should not be having a marketing angle.
Wikipedia is a site that is trusted by Google.
Wikipedia is a great traffic source.
First off, to have a Wikipedia page you or your company need to be noteworthy and all information has to be referenced and cited accordingly so it can be checked out and verified through credible sources. Whilst anyone can add to Wikipedia or change a page, if the rules are not adhered to then that result in the page being removed or a notification at the top of the page stating that there are problems with the article. Getting a Wikipedia page isn't easy at all but it can be very beneficial.
