I've noticed that a lot of wikis come up highly on Google, and I wonder if that's because of the number of inter-page links in the articles. I also have a template with a link to the main page at the bottom of articles. Would that help too?
About this discussion
Are all the hyperlinks to other pages in articles the reason why wikis often come up first on Google?
I think no
Is that to adding the template, or adding the inter-article links?
Both. There is a link to the main page in the sidebar already.
So adding more links in articles will help?
It has to do with search engine optimization.
What should I do to improve Google search results?
Get search engine optimization.

MediaWiki and Debian (squeeze)
- Debian Linux 6.0 (Squeeze) Webserver.
- MediaWiki 1.17.0 (Version 95135)
- PHP 5.3.3-7+squeeze3 (apache2handler)
- MySQL 5.1.49-3
I used some JS-Scripts like Collapsible elements and some other stuff. All Scripts works fine and correct, but not on a Debian Linux Webserver. I tryd the Scripts on a OpenSuse and Ubuntu Webserver and the Skripts works. On a Debian Server, not. I don't know why... Need i a special Configuration on my Debian or a plugin/modul or whatever else to fix this problem? Have someone an idea?
no one a Idea to fix it?

No Help for this issue, at the moment. I ask the same Question in an German Debianforum. Maybe i find there a help and if i found one, i will post it here!^^
Remove Information/Formatting the Download Page
Is it possible to change the colors of the table on a download page (The quick links at the top and in the file history)? Also, is there a way to remove information from there? For example, the "Edit this file using an external application (See the setup instructions for more information)" is not needed. Thanks. EDIT - I'm using the MonoBook skin.
new Wiki markup
I'm using the mediawiki.
By the way, was used during the <sup></sup> (superscript tag), <sub></sub> (subscript tag) <s></s> (underline tag) <del><strike><s></s></strike></del> (strike-through tags, and a horizontal line tag) etc are implemented in the wiki markup tags that are not found.
These tags can be also be implemented in wiki Is it possible? For example Hello as a ^Hello^, Hello as a ,,Hello,, And the same.
Using a translator can be awkward. I'm sorry.
mediawiki doesnot contain metatag?? should i use some extension for the same?
Seeing the source file I think mediawiki doesnot contain metatag.. for descreption and keywords. So is it advisable to use some metatag extension in my wiki..
I am using Mediawiki 1.17 Thanks.
Category:HTML head extensions. You have a number of choices.
Thank you. Well is it advisable to add meta tags? would that be beneficial? Thanks..
Google is not the only search engine in the world. Leaving meta tag keywords out depends on your market.
What search engines use them? They're so heavily abused that I can't imagine the search results being very useful.
[WW][Resolved] Making content only pages?
Hello, I am trying to make it so only content shows up. I want to embed some pages on an iframe where the end users will not be able edit it. But I would also like it so you can go to directly to the page (or a different link) and be able to see the whole link so I can have editors see everything. I tried editing the Common.css like found here but wasn't able to get the main content moved up in the top left corner in IE. It looks fine in Firefox.
What am I doing wrong or what can I change?
EDIT - Problem Resolved
Glad that your problem was resolved that quickly!
OpenSearch returns only JSON
I am currently trying to add a federated search from MS Sharepoint to MediaWiki (newest version) through its OpenSearch-Interface.
MediaWiki 1.17.0 PHP 5.3.3-7+squeeze1 (apache2handler) MySQL 5.1.49-3
I am using an url like ..../api.php?action=opensearch&search=api&limit=2&namespace=0&format=xmlfm but it always returns JSON (though with results) on our MediaWiki-installation. At Wikipedia e.g. it returns XML as it should.
Maybe someone can point me in the right direction, I looked at the config parameters, but cannot figure out what to do.
Thanks for your help,
I believe that's something new in 1.18. You can try using the http://www.mediawiki.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=search&srsearch=api&srnamespace=0&srlimit=2 style queries though, which support xml in 1.17.
Hm.. doesn't look like 1.18 has it, not even 1.19.
Formats other than json/xml don't work.
Yes, that's the one. Unfortunately it does not return an Atom / RSS - feed like an OpenSearch-query should.
Many thanks for the answers, really appreciated :)
Whoops, sorry about mixing up the extension and version changes and giving wrong info :S
[WW][Resolved] How to change Main Page Tilte
Ok I cant find the area where you change the "Main Page" title.
I really want to change this as when I type it in Google it show the main page also like: <title> Main Page </title> (HTML)
I dont know where to change this???
There's a good article on how to do this: MediaWiki FAQ: How can I change what the title of each page is?
Ok i changed the <title> </title> But it still says "Main Page" in the Wiki , when I click edit it is not there I cant remove or edit this text?
Can't Add More Than 4 External Links If They Have Labels
I'm building an internal wiki on my company's intranet. Here's our setup:
- MediaWiki - v1.17.0
- PHP - v5.2.17 (cgi-fcgi)
- MySQL - v5.1.56
I can create a new page with up to three labelled external links, and everything works just fine. For example, this will work:
[http://google.com Google] [http://yahoo.com Yahoo!] [http://bing.com Bing]
However, as soon as I add a fourth link, I get a "403 Forbidden" error whenever I try to save the page. So, for example, this will not work:
[http://google.com Google] [http://yahoo.com Yahoo!] [http://bing.com Bing] [http://msn.com MSN]
If the fourth link is enclosed in square brackets without a label (i.e. [http://msn.com]), I also get the 403 error. However, if I simply put in the fourth link as a URL without any brackets (http://msn.com) then I can save the page.
The full text of the 403 error is:
Forbidden You don't have permission to access /wiki/index.php on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
What would cause this behavior? Is there a setting that limits the number of labeled, external links I can put on a single page?
Thanks in advance! I appreciate any advice or insight.
Does your Apache have mod_security?
No, I don't think so. I created a page with "phpinfo()", and it did not contain any mention of mod_security.
Hello, I also have this problem. How do I add more than 3 links to my Wiki's linkpage without getting this error? Is it a bug or a feature I have to turn off?
Thanks in advance!
