Wikipedia and eHow: Using Information in Content Creation

When you’re trying to drive traffic to your website, it helps to look at other websites that have managed to do this on a large scale. What are your go-to websites? When you’re looking for detailed information on anything, don’t you generally go to Wikipedia? Sure, this website doesn’t have the best reputation for accuracy but most of us go there anyway, just to get a basic overview of whatever topic we might be researching.

For what’s happening in the world right now, we might go to reputable newspapers like The New York Times or TV channels like CNN. One website that has gained a good reputation for current events on the internet, without being present in any other form of media, is Huffington Post. Plus, if you’re looking for how-tos, you probably know that eHow is the way to go. And if you’re looking for information on movies, actors or anything to do with the movie-making world, the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) has a good reputation.
