SEOs Can Beat WikipediaWe asked our readers a few weeks ago if they can beat Wikipedia in the Google results? The answer is yes, most SEOs believe they can beat Wikipedia's listings in the Google results.

81% of SEOs feel they can beat the Wikipedia number one listings, if they need to. 74% said they can do it with some work, while 7% said it would be easy to do so. Let me share the break down of results:

Question: Can You Beat a #1 Wikipedia Google Listing? :: Yes, But With Work said 117 respondents or 74% :: No, Too Hard said 23 respondents or 14% :: Yes, Easily said 11 respondents or 7% :: No, Not Possible said 5 respondents or 3% :: Other answer... said 3 respondents or 2%

That is a total of 159 responses to the poll.
