wikipedia in search

John Battelle writes about a study of Yahoo, Google and Wikipedia:

[In 2005] for all 10 results on the first page, 2% of the links proposed by Google and 4% of those proposed by Yahoo came from Wikipedia. On the first link alone, Google offered no Wikipedia results (at least not in our sample) and Yahoo offered 7%.

The strategies have changed completely. Today 27% of Google’s results on the first link alone come from Wikipedia, as do 31 % of Yahoo’s.

Я по этим 27-31% ссылок иногда хожу (деваться некуда), но не могу сказать, что очень этим доволен.
