It is available in numerous languages including Swedish, Portuguse and Chinese so that more people can have access to it.
There are 8 sections on the Wikimedia website.
You might be familiar with the Wikipedia - the Encyclopedia for all. This is the most popular site so far. Just give a quick search for anything that you are interested in, and you will find loads of data, organized in a wise manner. It doesn’t matter if you are looking for an artist or a footballer, or the Battle of Hastings, the Wikipedia comprises data on all these.
The Wiktionary is an outstanding dictionary in a variety of important languages. It is like having hundreds of dictionaries on your computer or on your bookshelves. I’ve introduced the word mud, and I’ve been presented with 12 pages with possible contexts with a percentage of relevance. I’ve entered the one with 97%, and I’ve got the meaning, pronunciation, possible expressions and sayings, plus the translation into 20 languages including Welsh!
The Wikiquote section contains quotations from all over the world in 10 languages. There are famous quotations, creative quotations and inspiring ones. There are several groups of passages taken from famous people, films, literature or TV shows. How about borrowing some words from the TV series Seinfeld? There is a section containing proverbs. You can search for a nice quotation according to themes such as art, friendship, politics, war, religion and so on, or from categories such as epitaphs, tongue twisters, last words or theatrical plays and musicals. The English version has collected over 8000 quotations.
The next section on the main page is the collection of textbooks, also available in several languages. You can find here books for small children, school level as well as University texts from different domains. It’s all there at Wikibooks.org. The Wikisource will present you with free books in numerous languages. You can select the language and then search after author or genre, subject or type.
Wikinews will keep you updated with all that happens in the world. Wikimedia commons contains media files. You can search for interesting photos by topic, by type by authors and so on. You can view nature pictures or famous paintings; it all depends on what you are looking for.
Last but not least, the Wikispecies section will inform you on all live species. Just browse through the over 79000 articles.
edit All this is for free.
No annoying ads, no pop ups, just valuable information. How come? This project is based on a healthy politics, that of presenting all people with the info they need on the Internet for free. People can add info if they are knowledgeable. You can contribute with valuable data from your field of activity. You can also donate an amount if you are a Wikimedia fan. All in all, Wikimedia is a great website that fully accomplishes its goals.

Home Page Analysis
The Home Page Analysis helps you understand how a site's home page appears to both search engines and site visitors.
Wikimedia.org Home Page Analysis Summary

The title and headings on the home page tell people and search
engines what a website is about.
Analyze the title & headings of the home page for free or the entire site.
Links & Images
Relevant links to other sites are good for people and search
engines. Images on a web page should be described for visually impaired
visitors and search engines.

Search Engine Friendliness
A few simple technical fixes can make any site show up better in
The title of a web page appears in search results as the link to that page. Learn more ...
The title of a web page appears as a clickable link in search results and bookmarks. A descriptive, compelling home page title with relevant keywords can increase the number of people visiting the site.
Search engines view the text of the title tag as a strong indication of what the page is about. Accurate keywords in the title tag can help the page rank better in search results.
A title tag should have fewer than 70 characters, including spaces. Major search engines won't display more than that.
The title tag of your home page (and any other page on your site) should not contain the site’s domain name or URL. These will appear near the title in search results, so use your 70 characters to tell people what the page is about. The title tag should not contain any HTML, because it will be displayed incorrectly or not at all.
- Good: This web page has a title tag.
- Problem: The title has fewer than three words. You may not be telling people and search engines enough about this page.
- The title of this site's home page:
- “Wikimedia Foundation”
The H1 heading is an important sentence or phrase on a web page that quickly and clearly tells people and search engines what they can expect to find there. Learn more ...
Just one H1
In most cases, a web page should have just one H1 heading. Using multiple H1 headings is okay if that is a logical way to organize the page, but they should be used sparingly. That’s because search engines can view multiple H1 headings as an attempt to signal that all the content on a page is equally important, a tactic that’s seen as an attempt to game the search engine algorithms.
Search engines look for an H1 heading to determine what a page is about. Human visitors do, too.
Content and placement
The H1 heading appears on the web page itself, unlike the page title, which people will see mostly in search results.
The H1 tag (which contains the H1 heading) is usually listed first among the other heading tags for a page. None of the major search engines, however, will penalize a site for listing H2 through H6 tags ahead of the H1 tag.
- Good: This page has one H1 heading.
- H1 heading for this site's home page:
- “Welcome to Wikimedia”
Wikimedia.org in search results
You can see below how most search engines will display this site's home page in search results. The title is used as the link to the page, and the meta description appears below the title.
Wikimedia is owned and operated by the Wikimedia Foundation, a non-profit foundation dedicated to bringing free content to the world.
Your website's robots.txt file can tell search engines to ignore parts of your site. Learn more ...
Website owners usually use robots.txt to let search engines know which pages or sections of their site shouldn't be indexed for example, web contact forms, print versions of web pages and other content that's duplicated elsewhere on the site. Robots.txt can also be used to request that specific robots not index a site. For more information, read How To Use Robots.txt.
Search engine robots
You'll need to know the names of specific search engine robots - or "bots" – if you’re going to exclude any or all of them from any part of your site.
- Google’s bot is called Googlebot. Google is the world’s largest search engine, and is where many people discover new websites.
- Bing’s bot is called msnbot. Bing also provides search results to people using Yahoo to search the Web. Together, Bing and Yahoo are the second largest search resource, after Google.
- Baidu’s bot is called Baiduspider. Baidu is a major search engine in China, and the number of people using it is increasing rapidly.
- AboutUs.org’s bot is called AboutUsBot. To create a Site Report, AboutUs uses crawling technology that’s similar to what search engines use.
- Good: This website’s robots.txt file is not blocking major search engines from crawling its pages. Your website can appear in any engine’s search results.
This website can live at www.Wikimedia.org or Wikimedia.org. It's best for your site's visibility to live at just one URL, or web address. You'll want to create a 301 redirect to the URL you choose from the other URL. Learn more ...
Choose one or the other
If the same web page exists at two different URLs, people can choose to link to one or the other. Links from other sites to your website are valuable — they tell search engines that your site is important to people. By splitting valuable links between two identical pages, you're diluting the power of those links to help a page rank higher in search results.

- Good: Your website resides at www.Wikimedia.org, and Wikimedia.org is permanently redirected to it.

Capture visitors who type the wrong name
It can make a lot of sense to redirect a domain to an existing web page. For example, many people are likely to type wikipedia.com when they are really looking for wikipedia.org. Creating a redirect from wikipedia.com to wikipedia.org helps these people get to the site they want.
