Glad that you like the article, Tony. Wikipedia remains as one of the most authoritative sites on the Internet so it's a great place for a business to have a listing. However, the moderating team over there has made life very hard for a lot of people trying to set up a Wikipedia page. Hopefully this article can help the BizSugar community out.

Thanks for this link, Wayne. So many people, myself included, wonder about the mysterious world of Wikipedia and the alleged "police" who patrol and delete your changes.

Yeah, Wikipedia is still a no-no place for a lot of businesses because of its complexity and the strict policing that you mentioned.
