Growing wiki crops can be profitable. Become a wiki farmer, and grow your wikis and earn prize money! Grow a wiki by 50% and you get a $5 prize. Double a wiki's traffic and you get another $5 prize. Each month the person with the wiki that grew in traffic the most gets $100 bonus! Further prizes to be announced for further growth... (We plan to expand this contest)

Contest Rules

  1. 1
    Claim a wiki to work on by posting in the discussion page
    "Wiki Growing Project: Claimed by WhoElse 17:13, 16 April 2014 (UTC)" The four tildes will automatically post your details, including a date/time stamp. Its a neat trick.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help
  2. 2
    You are allowed to make sub-wikis
    Sub=wikis count towards one wiki so don't think you have to write everything as a stub! For example: "Educational video games" wiki could link out to:
    1. video games to increase eye hand coordination
    2. video games to develop math skills
    3. video games to develop spelling abilities
    4. video games to learn history
    5. etc

  3. 3
    As long as the theme is directly related you can count them as towards one wiki.

  4. 4
    Any inbound link building MUST be approved by Robbi first
    She will write a quality link building guide to help you for those who wish to pursue this avenue to help boost their articles.
