Google Treating Wikipeda Too Well?

A WebmasterWorld thread discusses how Google may be treating Wikipedia a bit too well. We all have seen it, search on anything generic and you are likely to find a Wikipedia result at the top.

Here are some random examples as I write this entry:

Chris wrote about this with The Rise of Wikipedia = The Fall of DMOZ? in July 2006.

I thought I give you a fresh thread to chew on at WebmasterWorld. Yes, Google used to treat DMOZ a bit too well in the past.

Google doesn't treat Wikipedia any better than other sites. It's not that hard to outrank Wikipedia. No "Wikiflames" were posted, but you know how badly I wanted to....

Also Yahoo is showing a bias towards wikipedia look at how they zoomed up to #1 for Search Engine Optimization and the same thing for SEO which is a redirect
