In this article, I have attempted to assess the SEO aspect of websites ending with pedia. SEO stands for search engine optimization and refers to how searchable, informative and accessible a page is.

Generally we have been programmed to believe that wikipedia is the only such website whose name ends with pedia. However that is incorrect. There are literally 100’s of websites ending with pedia. I have taken a cross-section of such web-sites from various genres and tried to assess the SEO performance of pedia/ wiki websites. Some of the key parameters I have assessed are Alexa Rank, Google PageRank, MozRank, visits/day and web-site worth.

Wikipedia

Wikipedia is a free-access, free-content Internet encyclopedia, supported and hosted by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation. Those who can access the site can edit most of its articles. Wikipedia is ranked among the ten most popular websites, and constitutes the Internet’s largest and most popular general reference work. However there have been concerns that Wikipedia is not at all neutral and is completely dominated by the West and Marxists[1].

Encyclopedia

Encyclopedia.com has more than 100 trusted sources, including encyclopedias, dictionaries, and thesauruses with facts, definitions, biographies, synonyms, pronunciation keys, word origins, and abbreviations. Encyclopedia.com provides reference entries from sources like Oxford University Press and Columbia Encyclopedia.

Metapedia

Metapedia is an electronic encyclopedia which focuses on culture, art, science, philosophy and politics. Its focus is on topics that usually are not covered in — i.e. that falls outside of — mainstream encyclopedias. It contains far-right, white nationalist, white supremacist, white separatist, antisemitic, and neo-Nazi points of view.

Conservapedia

Conservapedia is an English-language wiki encyclopedia project written from an American conservative, Young Earth creationist, and Christian fundamentalist point of view. The website was started in 2006 by American homeschool teacher and attorney Andrew Schlafly, son of conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly, to counter what he perceived as a liberal bias present in Wikipedia.

Scholarpedia

Scholarpedia is an English-language online wiki-based encyclopedia with features commonly associated with open-access online academic journals, which aims to have quality content. Scholarpedia articles are written by invited expert authors and are subject to peer review.

JurisPedia  is a wiki encyclopedia of academic law in many languages, currently available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Spanish and Dutch. It was started in October 2004, inspired in part by Wikipedia and the Enciclopedia Libre (University of Seville).

Appropedia

Appropedia is a wiki website for collaborative solutions in sustainability, poverty reduction and international development, with a particular focus on appropriate technology.

Hindupedia

Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia, is devoted to educating the public about all aspects of Hinduism ranging from history and philosophy to current events that impact Hindus. They are the only online Hindu encyclopedia that provides the public with a traditional perspective on Hindu religion and way of life.

Uncyclopedia

Uncyclopedia is a satirical website that parodies Wikipedia. Its logo, a hollow “puzzle potato”, parodies Wikipedia’s globe puzzle logo, and it styles itself “the content-free encyclopedia”, which is a parody of Wikipedia’s slogan, “the free encyclopedia”.

Brahminpedia

Brahminpedia is a Brahmin Encyclopedia. It seeks to provide a counter-narrative to the usual Hinduphobia and Brahmin-bias that is inherent in post-modern multi-cultural Western and leftist-secular Indian discourse, as far as main-stream narratives on India and Hinduism are concerned.

  • Who are the Brahmins?
  • Was the Reservation Policy of Government of India a CIA conspiracy to force Brahmins to migrate to USA and turbo-charge American Science and Technology?
  • Why did Muslim invaders slaughter Brahmins?
  • Is it true that almost all great achievements in Science, Philosophy, Art and Culture in India since historic times are because of the 5% Brahmin population in India?

Brahminpedia claims that it will “try to answer all the above questions, as well as those questions which have not yet been articulated.

Conclusion

As is evident, there is a huge variation in rankings of websites ending with pedia. Not every pedia website is considered authoritative. However, what is evident is that Wikipedia is not necessarily everyone’s number one choice for all topics, given its left-liberal bias and lack of independence[2].
