A High Rankings Forums member wonders if there's a way to check how many links are on Wikipedia. A few people say yes, you can. Some possible methods of exploration include the linkdomain:yoursite.com site:wikipedia.org or Google Webmaster Tools. But Barry, our savior, gives the most authoritative answer yet:

To see your links from Wikipedia (nofollowed or not followed) go to:

Here is an example search of our links in Wikipedia.

Nice. If you didn't know that existed, now you do. :)

Barry, Gabs is actually on to something there. I've done this for a few of my sites by removing my competition because they either got there links there in a sneaky way (and do not comply with the Wikipedia policies) or some how are irrelevant to the article. It's a good way to help decrease the competition :)
