Editing and Monitoring Wiki Pages

A lot of people likely think that the incredibly popular website Wikipedia hires editors to edit the massive amount of pages that are featured on their site. However, this could not be further from the way that the site is operated, as the Wikipedia editors to each page are literally the actual users that come to each page. The site is a sort of online community, where any user can make an edit a Wiki page. These people can be considered the editors, as it really is a cumulative sort of process, which really is fully organic. There have been a lot of studies on the way that Wikipedia pages get edited, but one of the most interesting thing is the fact that when a user makes an edit to a page, there is a sort of chain reaction. An edit to any page usually sparks more edits to be made to the page, which is in reality a bit of a domino effect. This process usually ends with multiple users making edits, which in theory should create a Wiki page that is the most accurate possible, which tends to the be the case for most pages.

While this sort of thing is great for the overall community of people that visit the site on a regular basis, as well as for the actual owners of Wikipedia, as they do not need to hire Wikipedia editors, this can pose a problem for people that are trying to portray their page in a certain way. For these people, it is beneficial to work with a company that can not only create a great page, but can make sure that the page does not get changed. One thing that people that create a Wikipedia page have to worry about is the fact that because the site is a community that allows for edits to pages, there could be edits to their page that they do not want.  Hiring a company such as Get Your Wiki is ideal, as they will be able to make any changes to your page if someone does make an edit that you don’t want made, which is something that can end up saving a lot of time and hassle for companies that don’t want to focus on this aspect of maintenance.
