I have recently written about public domain resources as a way to get free and legal content to your website (but remember of duplicate content issues).
In this post I would like to talk of one more resource that might be helpful with quality content for your website – Wikiquote It is a part of Wikipedia.org but the latter deserves a separate talk as it is a great source of good information and a place where you should try to get a link from (but not by spamming it – anyway it will be removed).
What is Wikiquote? Wikiquote is a selection of quotes from famous people. There are a few language versions of Wikiquote. English version at the moment counts over 7,500 pages.
Four basic Wikiquote principles – accurate and comprehensive collection of notable quotations.
You can edit Wikiquote by adding/ modifying the entries, but at this time we are more interested in using it as a source of content for our own websites. You can browse quotations by categories or by search. Once you found a few quotations that might be a good fit for your website – you just copy/ paste them and your web pages get some extra charm.
Summary: quotations are a good way to attract readers’ attention. You just need to find the ones that are a perfect fit for your website and place them prominently.
You can also use quotations in a few different ways. For example, use a quotation in your forum signature. It is a sort of magnet – people tend to read it and check the website of that person. Wikiquote offers a great selection and covers multiple areas.
