Renowned linoleum artist Bill Miller did not have any presence on Wikipedia, despite being recognized multiple times by the New York Times. We were commissioned to post an article about him on Wikipedia. We researched Miller’s background, cited numerous national news stories about him and his works, and then wrote and posted the article on Wikipedia. Miller has now secured his rightful place on Wikipedia, which adds to his credibility as an artist and helps sell his work by driving traffic to his website.
Take it from us, take Wikipedia seriously.
A Wikipedia article comes up as the number one result on more than half of all Google searches. And with more than 5.5 million articles in English, it may be the top search result for your organization.
Do you have a Wikipedia page? Just as important, do you control your own content — or is someone else setting the tone for your page?
Many people don’t touch their Wikipedia pages. We understand the hesitation because Wikipedia guidelines strongly discourage editing your article yourself. Others have attempted to edit their own articles, and have been censored by the volunteer editing community. They, too, are reluctant to edit again. But, if you’re transparent about who you are and play by the rules, you can successfully make edits and improve your Wikipedia article. And that’s a big win for your online brand reputation.
To the Point’s Wikipedia experts will guide you through the tricky process of starting or editing your article, while sharing our valuable insights. Work with us and you’ll have the confidence and clarity to manage your Wikipedia page like the valuable brand asset it should be.

- You need to analyze your notability, a measure of whether a topic warrants its own Wikipedia article
- You need a Wikipedia article started from scratch
- Your page is outdated and needs to reflect your current status
- You’d like someone on your staff to be trained as your Wikipedia page editor, with a full understanding of conflict-of-interest editing
- You edited a company-related Wikipedia article, but all the edits were reverted by a volunteer editor
- Someone vandalized your Wikipedia page and it needs immediate crisis editing
- Your article has a banner strongly suggesting that it needs better citations or is written like an advertisement and needs to be rewritten

Linoleum Artist Bill Miller Gets on Wikipedia
Public Relations Firm Adds Value with Wikipedia
Public relations firm owner Bruce B. came to us to help him create a new Wikipedia article for his client, a large national real estate investment trust. We taught Bruce about Wikipedia’s Rules of Engagement and how to make effective edits, so he could establish himself as a valuable contributor to the online encyclopedia. Then we trained Bruce so he could successfully write and post an article about his client, to best meet Wikipedia standards.
The article Bruce posted continues to share pertinent information about the real estate company, and traffic to his client’s website has increased as a result.
I needed a Wikipedia page for one of my major clients but didn’t know where to start. I turned to To the Point for help. Dan and his team did not disappoint. They simplified the process and guided me through each and every step so that I could create a page that had an immediate impact on my client’s web presence.
