    You can't. It will be deleted.

    In any case, why do you want this?

    @VITS USA - a useful link but it doesn’t work like that. If you try an create a page for your own business it will get rejected.

    I've been trying to create one for my blog too, but it is always rejected! How do I fix that?

    @Vadoh - you can’t fix it. It will keep being rejected. Self promotional pages are not permitted.

    So, do I have to hire somebody to do that for me?

    You can do it yourself or you can hire somebody - the result will still be the same: rejection.

    You cannot create a Wikipedia page for your own business.

    @Jenn Webb

    Self-promotion is not allowed on Wikipedia.

    But one can have a company listing on Wikipedia. For that, your company needs to get lots of attention. It should be covered in reputed journals and newspapers and publications.

    See below image from
    Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations Page which describes what you need to have a company page on Wikipedia. (I am new to the forum so couldn't post a link to the article)

    Hope this will help you understand what you need to do to get the company page on Wikipedia.

    Jenn, did you get the bit where he said you can't build your own page.

    Forget this idea - it's not going to work.

    Yes, you said the same. It is not easy to get published. Thank you to you as well. Maybe sometime in the feature.
