Wikipedia, TED and SEO

Once a year the smartest people on the cutting edge of everything get together to speak and amaze each other at TED.

Through some random acts of philanthropy and sponsorship they release a sampling of these talks to us normal people. They’re well worth the time and change how you think about the world.

The video below is the story of Wikipedia from the mouth of its creator, Jimmy Wales. It was shot in 2006 so it might be a bit dated.

It’s relevant here because Wales might just be the best SEO in the world: Wikipedia dominates nearly every search result. And he has people write his entire, massive site for him, for free.

Your thoughts?

Have a great weekend!
