wikiHow:Content Farm Submissions

EditContent Farm Submissions

wikiHow does not accept articles that are cut and paste copies of articles sourced at the major content farms. These articles are in the majority created by affiliate marketers solely for marketing purposes. Genuine businesses who wish to share their content typically do so from their official sites and blogs.

Articles submitted in this fashion will be deleted under our Speedy deletion policy. The author should be sent this template: {{copyviorfarm}}

The following is our current list of disallowed sources.

Add a suspected content farm link here for review. If after monitoring it is accepted, it will be blacklisted.

  • about.com - controversial about the definition of "farm", but the copyvio bot is catching more than enough/needed from here and absolutely no one has responded when checking copyvios, thus my personal need to add it to the review list
