Wikis are a great tool that allow any topic, anywhere, to be compiled and crosschecked by just about anyone to great effect whether it is simply to provide knowledge or to promote a business. A wiki is a tool unlike any other.

In this book, you will learn everything you need to know to unlock the potential of the Wiki format.

You will learn how to edit an existing wiki entry and how to start using your wiki for other purposes. Learn the top 20 strategies for wiki marketing as well as the importance of volume in your wiki and why having a great deal of posts to index in search engines is nearly as important as the writing being high quality.

Review:

We started wikiHow with a lot of hope, but little cash. In just four years, thousands of volunteers have collaborated to write 50,000 how-to articles in 6 languages that are now read by over 16 million people a month. All this happened because of the magic of the Wiki Way. The Complete Guide to Wikis explains how you can start a wiki and apply some of the principles of the Wiki Way to your Web site. --Jack Herrick, Founder, wikiHow
