Definition of Wiki

January 23, 2008

Since Wikipedia is the 8th most visited web site according to comScore, I thought I would provide the following sources and definitions for”wiki” I found while searching Google.

* A website or similar online resource which allows users to add and edit content collectively.
Multiplatform Glossary

* A collection of web pages that can be edited by a group.
Cornell University

* This is a website that includes the collaboration of work from many different authors. A wiki site allows anyone to edit, delete, or modify the content on the web. (The first wiki creator named the site after a chain of buses in Hawaii; Wiki means “quick” in Hawaiian.)
Technology Initiative Grants

* A generic name for a web-page which anyone can edit quickly without having to learn HTML. Wikibooks

* A wiki (IPA: or ) is a website that allows visitors to add, remove, edit and change content, typically without the need for registration. It also allows for linking among any number of pages. This ease of interaction and operation makes a wiki an effective tool for mass collaborative authoring.

GoogleTestAd – Google Test Ad

September 6, 2006

For some time I have seen the GoogleTestAd show up in search data as a popular keyword query. I decided to dig a little deeper. Google Test Ad even has its own Wikipedia entry. However, tonight I see Google is bidding on their own keyword. The Adwords ad reads: Congratulations! This is a family safe ad. All systems are go! Clicking the ad in turn leads to a Google search results page for Family Safe.
