Why Was My Wikipedia Page Deleted?

Anyone can add or edit Wikipedia articles. However, due to the vast number of strict Wikipedia guidelines, many users find that their articles or drafts get lined for deletion. Thus, a common problem on Wikipedia is that pages tend to disappear.

Wikipedia deletes many pages every day as per the Wikipedia page deletion policy. There are many reasons why your Wikipedia page might get deleted, these include:

  • Your content meets at least one of the criteria for speedy deletion.
  • Your uploaded content violates copyrights or includes other material that violates Wikipedia’s non-free content criteria.
  • It exists solely to depreciate the subject.
  • It includes advertising or other kinds of spam without any relevant content.
  • If it cannot be attributed to reliable sources or if it contains hoaxes or even original theories or conclusions.
  • If it breaches Wikipedia’s policy on the biographies of living persons.
  • If it includes files that are unused.
  • Your page contains content that is not suitable for an encyclopedia.

How To Avoid Wikipedia Page Deletion

From a mere online encyclopedia, Wikipedia has emerged into a website that helps businesses and brands increase their audiences. However, Wikipedia strictly disallows self-promotion, so if it gets proven that a brand is creating its own Wikipedia page, the page can get labeled for deletion. The pages that do not comply with Wiki guidelines can result in their deletion and at times even result in permanent bans. The preferred way to deal with this issue of deletion is to avoid it in the first place. Therefore, it is in your best interest to employ a Wikipedia page creation agency, who are experts in Wikipedia page creation. This will minimize the risk of your page getting deleted.

Remember that all Wikipedia pages must:

  • Cover a topic that is notable enough and that has merit, in other words, it must be covered extensively by trusted, third-party sources
  • Must be neutral and objective in tone- must not be promotional
  • Not violate any copyrights
  • Be well-sourced with reliable/ perennial sources, i.e. citations must include academic journals and nation-wide newspapers

How To Restore A Deleted Wiki Page?

While your page disappears from the mainspace of Wikipedia, you can still view it in the Deletion log section on Wikipedia. HatsOff will help you recover a deleted Wikipedia page by restructuring your content, checking all the citations of your original work, and eventually moving your page from the deleted log section to Wikipedia’s mainspace.

How Can Hats-Off Help To Recover A Deleted Wikipedia Page?

At HatsOff Digital, we help you to recover deleted Wikipedia page. If you believe that there was a mistake made by an editor in closing a Wikipedia page deletion discussion or in applying a speedy deletion, you can reach out to them directly and discuss the matter with them.
Not surprisingly, this process can be really complicated, especially when you get into an involved discussion with other editors who toss around technical terms. You can ask editors to explain the process to you, and they probably will be glad to help. However, they will not have the time to walk you through each and every step of the discussion. For that, you will need someone who has Wikipedia expertise but also stands apart from the specific process. That would be someone like us.
