Does Wikipedia Make Money?
Does Wikipedia make money and if so how does it do it because I have never seen ads on Wikis.
Every once in awhile they ask for donations. In the past they have placed headers on just about every page that say something like "A personal request from Wikipedia's founder" or something. It's pretty incredible they find a way to do what they do with the limited staff/servers they have.
Wikipedia really prides itself in not having ads, so you'll probably never find one.
Wikipedia exists solely on donations.
I always wondered how they manage to stay afloat. It such a great job they are doing. Maybe one day I can also donate to them. Thanks for the info.
They're sustained by donations. Personally, it wouldn't bother me at all if they started displaying ads, but it's their choice to be ad-free.
As already mentioned, Wikipedia does not deal with ads but solely on donations from its supporters. Pretty amazing if you ask me.
It certainly is amazing, they have useful information on so many topics.
Sure BlossomSB. The information there is just immense. I bet it is the primary source of information for many people.
Vanika, thanks for dropping by and for the info. As u said, it truly is amazing. Viva Wikipedia
