Many SEOs argue that Wikipedia receives too much attention in Google’s search results.
A 2012 study revealed that Wikipedia articles rank for 99% of all googled terms. For more than in half of them Wikipedia is the number one search result.
Moonsearch’s analysis of Google’s search results reveals the Search Engine’s perception of Internet. It’s not that of a teenager looking for entertainment, a small entrepreneur, or of a money-crazed blackhat SEO-warrior. It’s closer to an old-fashioned, scientific view of the Web (free sharing of highly validated information), than to today’s content-for-profit Internet. Although being one of the most high-profit companies because of its advertising and other businesses, in its organic Search output Google apparently benefits Wikipedia. Some call it an unfair bias from Google towards Wikipedia.
