Continuing on with yesterday’s preview of SMX Social Media — Search Engine Land’s first Search Marketing Expo show focused on social media marketing, I wanted to talk briefly about a special session we’re doing for the first time: Wikipedia Clinic.
The idea behind the session is simple. Many people are concerned about how they are listed at Wikipedia but are uncertain how to approach requesting changes. To guide them, we have a session running before the Wikipedia Clinic called Wikipedia, Yahoo Answers & Answer Sharing. That session will talk about general Wikipedia advice, tactics, and some case studies and examples.
Wikipedia Clinic is meant to go beyond the general. Our panelists — all marketers experienced with Wikipedia, plus a Wikipedia administrator — will look at particular issues those in the audience have about how they appear at Wikipedia, to guide them with some specifics on how to deal with things.
I’m looking forward to the session and thought it was a great way to end the show. For more about the event overall, be sure to see these past posts:
