    Traffic from Wikipedia?

    So I'm a statistics freak. Google Analytics can occupy my attention for hours at a time. I've noticed I started getting some traffic from en.wikipedia and it doesn't tell me from where! Does anybody use Wikipedia for backlinks? And also, can you search Wiki for your content or a reference to your content?

    I do not use Wikipedia for anything except some images and some reference sources at the end of a very few of their articles. I do see that some members of that site often completely copy articles from other websites onto Wikipedia.

    Since September, whenever I have noticed a new and odd-seeming traffic source, that source is copying my Hubs, and I have filed nearly 100 DMCA forms this week. That's just my own experience.

    Try searching Wiki with your topic or Hub title and see what comes up in results. I'll be interested to know.
