Should Doctors go for Wikipedia Page

In a crowded competitive market place, where money generates publicity, where budgets determine the digital advertising reach you can achieve, Wikipedia page remains distinct. The strict editorial practices mean although many try, only a few succeed in getting the Wikipedia page accepted. 

When studying Wikipedia pages of Doctors, it’s noticed that some of the Dr?s pages are excellent & are updated periodically. This is the way it should be. At the other end of the spectrum, we have Doctor?s Wikipedia pages that have editor’s remarks. These are generally due to incorrect content policies & practices followed. The Wikipedia pages with remarks speak of poor management & quality. 

During the last 20 years, we have been offering Digital Marketing services, which includes Wikipedia page publishing and page management. Should you be aspiring for a Wikipedia page, or you feel that a Doctor’s friend of yours has served humanity well, covered well in the media & wish to have a Wikipedia page for him or her let us know. We shall make a study and let you know if the Doctor has the potential for a page or not. 

Sharing is caring!
