Top 57 Wikis By Rank

Over the last couple years we’ve seen Wikipedia grow at a phenomenal rate - pushing its global rank into the top ten. This growth, and open-source tools such as MediaWiki and MoinMoin has led to the start of all sorts of new Wikis.

Below is a list of the top fifty-seven Wikis by rank (according to Alexa). Keep in mind, some Wikis, such as Adobe’s, are on sub-domains and inherit the sites root-level rank, which skew the stats a bit… but you get the idea :)

If there’s something I’ve missed, post a comment and I’ll be happy to add it.

    Tripadvisor has a wiki. They call it their “Inside pages”. It is a travel wiki where you can colaborate on a travel guide for any destination.

    http://www.tripadvisor.com/TravelHome

    With an Alexa rank of 504, that would put it 4th on your list.

    How about ranking them based on contribution count - which wiki has more articles or active users.

    I was expecting to find a list of wiki web apps here, where I can build my own wiki, but it looks like you’re listing wikis that have lots of traffic and lots of content. You may be able to find other wikis that have substantial content over at http://www.wikimatrix.org/

    Some other content wikis, which may not rank in the top 57, but would fit the kind of list that’s here: www.wikiversity.org and www.wikichristian.org and www.orthodoxwiki.org

  16. Chad Lewis Says:

    WikiVid.com was recently launched, I guess its too new to have made the list, but will be fun to watch that one grow. On Wikivid, you make video-courses made up of videos from all over the web, currently its all software-related.

    If you haven’t heard of them, it’s because most of them are extremely obscure.

    I was thrilled to see this compilation. Thank you!

    Of course, I’m horribly biased. I’m the founder and director of WikiAnswers. I started it back in 2002, pre-wiki, as FAQ Farm. It became “Wiki FAQs” in 2004. In 2006 we joined with Answers.com and rechristened the site as “WikiAnswers”.

    For the record: We do use Mediawiki, but it’s been highly customized and changed.

    I’m surprised shop wiki is on this list. That’s simply an internet scrapper site. It was accessing my site more than google and simply scraping pages till I blocked it. Apparently the guys who run it are friends with people who are big names on the internet hence why they get away with it.

    Centiare is a wiki directory that is for small businesses, entrepreneurs, artists, authors, and musicians. Because we allow Semantic Web attributes and relations that Wikipedia doesn’t allow, we get pages that go to the top of Google search results. Don’t believe it? Come to Centiare.com and click on “SEO methods” in the sidebar.

    Alexa rank (this week): 43,865 . . . which just MIGHT still be in your Top 100 when you update this list again.
