Contributing to Wikipedia Growth by Making Donations
- Wikipedia is one of the highest visited sites on the internet serving 470 million people every month with billions of page views.
- Wikipedia provides information virtually on every topic you think and search and moreover, the information is completely free to access.
- Unlike websites which rely on advertisements to generate revenue for them, Wikipedia is a non-profit organization which relies on donations instead of advertisements for its growth and survival.
- Google has a million servers, Yahoo has around 13,000 staff. But Wikipedia lags behind the required infrastructure and so as to meet demands for the same, it has to rely heavily on fundings from its readers.
Well, please do not get me wrong here. I haven’t been asked by Wikipedia to write for them. This is purely on the basis of my thinking and finally, it is with one to decide on the same. Just felt we could also play our part and donating few bucks is far more easier than being an editor over there…What say ??
