How to dig more information on Wikipedia using Google


WikipediaWikipedia contains many information about million of topics but each single thematic page doesn’t contain all the possible info or links about that specific subject. In fact some other details about a topic, or related to it, can be in other parts of Wikipedia not linked to the main topic.

In my experience, sometimes you can find some really interesting details about a topic if you simply use a Google query as:

site:en.wikipedia.org “Chet Baker”

Where the topic is “Chet Baker” and it is searched by Google into the entire Wikipedia.org website. If you deeply peep the results you can now find some information not contained in the “Chet Baker” page in Wikipedia.

These tip is really simple but I think it could be useful for journalists, data miners or for all that people who are not satisfied by a simple Wikipedia search.  AddThis

    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was
    etremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it uup what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer bbut I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any helpful hints for inexpeienced blog writers?
    I’dreally appreciate it.

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours nowadays, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is beautiful value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website
    owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
