LeeAnn Prescott from Hitwise posted Google Traffic To Wikipedia up 166% Year over Year. She has hard stats that prove what SEOs and Webmasters have been claiming for the past year plus.

The percentage of Google's downstream traffic going to Wikipedia increased by 166% year over year (week ending 2/10/07 vs. week ending 2/11/06). Last week Wikipedia was the #3 website in Google's downstream, after Google Image Search and MySpace.

That is some serious traffic. Is Wikipedia worthy of it?
