Ring in Wikipedia’s Birthday with New Case Study for ‘Create An Article’ Project by No, No, No, No, No, Yes
Since Wikipedia just celebrated its 13th birthday, it seemed appropriate to share this case study for “Create An Article” project, an initiative created for Hebrew Wikipedia by Gideon Amichay‘s agency No, No, No, No, No, Yes (named after his recent book and TEDx talk).
The project saw No, No, No, No, No, Yes team up with top Israeli journalists, each of whom wrote new Wikipedia articles “in their field of expertise and based on their personal knowledge” and broadcast the process on a channel 2 news program. (Channel 2 is the most viewed TV channel in Israel.) The agency decided that since media people are amongst Wikipedia’s biggest users, that this was an appropriate way for them to give back to the popular site. “Create An Article” was a huge success, gaining “2,033,000 viewers in a country of 8 million people.” Even more impressively, the “growth rate in the Hebrew Wikipedia viewing pages during the campaign was 9 times higher than the worldwide average, reaching a record of 67.4 million viewing pages.” Check out the case study above to learn more about the project, and stick around for credits after the jump.
