Hello, Sven H Hangson! Thank you for contributing to Wikivoyage, but please note that one or more of your recent edits has been reverted as it appeared to be an attempt to use this site to advertise or promote a business or service. Wikivoyage is created by travellers for travellers, and while business owners and employees are welcome to contribute, use of this site for promotional purposes is not allowed.
If you feel that your edits were incorrectly identified as promotional, please read Wikivoyage's guidelines on identifying promotional edits. If, after reading that guideline, you still feel your edits were incorrectly removed, please use this talk page or the talk page of the article where your edit was removed to explain why your change was not promotional. Note that it is very important that you discuss your proposed change before re-adding it since repeated promotional edits can lead to a temporary block of your account's ability to edit Wikivoyage, and in serious cases the business in question may be blacklisted from Wikivoyage.
Okay but its also a restaurant can I add it if I also enter the visitor address for customers.Edit
Okay but its also à restaurant can I add it if I also enter the visitor address for customers. Didn’t think about that when I published it the first time but I see all my competition and colleagues are in there so since your page is a very nice travel guide I would like to have my restaurant on it as well. It’s a good look for me and also for the travel guide. Sven H Hangson (talk) 13:48, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
- It's fine to list a restaurant in the article for the place where it's located, and the listing could mention that it also caters. Just follow the don't tout and Wikivoyage:Listings guidelines. Ikan Kekek (talk) 19:20, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
Did I do something wrong. Because when I search the site it’s there in results but when I click the site I can’t see it. Good thing I’ll never become tech support or programmer. Guess this is not my strong side. Can you see it Sven H Hangson (talk) 20:16, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
- Did you really read Wikivoyage:Don't tout? You can't use "we" and speak in the first person in listings (and also, don't insert unneeded hard line breaks). Please, please read welcome, business owners and don't tout carefully! Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:32, 20 February 2020 (UTC)
- Hello, Sven, and welcome to Wikivoyage. It sounded like you were worried about search engine optimization. I asked the tech folks about it in this discussion, and they don't think you need to worry about having a link here.
- While you're here, could I ask you to add a piece of your own personal advice to an article? Is there a place you always take friends to in town, or a favorite hotel? The advice of a local resident is often very valuable.
- Also, there is a Wikivoyage in Swedish at https://sv.wikivoyage.org/ if you're interested in writing in Swedish. I don't think anyone has compared the English and Swedish articles on Malmö for a while. WhatamIdoing (talk) 18:38, 27 February 2020 (UTC)
But I can make the article. Tried to erase the article again. Se what I write as the listing could stay but only as do follow please check my reason for editing. But I’ll make an article for you I Swedish anyways. But would really appreciate a do follow link or else my seo team tells me to take it down Sven H Hangson (talk) 19:25, 27 February 2020 (UTC)
- Sven H Hangson - It's not that simple. Wikivoyage's mission is to serve the traveller, not to optimize SEO for your business's website. When you add a listing or anything else to Wikivoyage, it's licensed under the terms of the CC-BY-SA 3.0 publishing license, which means you consent to the information being freely republished, edited, or adapted by anyone, provided appropriate credit is given to the author. See w:WP:Text of Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License for the fine print. Conversely, this also means you consent to the possibility of other editors reinstating any content you may have removed from Wikivoyage. So you can't just "take it down" because your "SEO team tells [you] to". You first have to come up with an argument for why it benefits travellers to Malmö to be denied information about your restaurant, and/or why we should abandon the longstanding WMF policy of nofollow links solely to benefit your business, and then convince the Wikivoyage community on one or both of those points. Unfortunately, you've got what could charitably be described as an uphill battle in that regard. By far the most likely outcome of this scenario is that your SEO team is simply going to have to find a way to come to terms with the presence of a nofollow link to their business on Wikivoyage. If it helps, you could tell them that if it hadn't been you yourself that added the listing to Wikivoyage, some other editor very likely would have. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 20:27, 27 February 2020 (UTC)
Hi Andre you missing the point. The thing is not the one do not follow link. The thing is that every time you post you create a new link on your site this means that instead of one do not follow link on your site I now have 30 it’s so bad that my backlink tracker can not even se my other links. So this means that you are basically spammed my backlink profile and is destroying my site and business. I don’t care about being represented on your site I posted it my self because some of my competitors are also there. I didn’t do it because of seo when I did it. It did to be there together with my competitors. But I don’t like the fact now that the site now I spamming my google searchconsul and so on. That’s why I want it sown you can even leave the info. But take away the link. It not nice to get spammed that way Sven H Hangson (talk) 23:04, 27 February 2020 (UTC)
Okay I have an idea just leave it. I’ll it’s change the link to my restaurant other website we have to sites that all end up the same place in that way it should be okay. At least that’s what they say Sven H Hangson (talk) 23:10, 27 February 2020 (UTC)
