    Assuming your site actually provides content and value and isn't a MFA site.

    Can you link from wikipedia's "External Links" section at the bottom?

    Like say you have a site about purple widgets. I'm talking about adding an External Link at the bottom of the Wikipedia page about Purple Widgets.

    That doesn't violate any TOS does it?

    Not like violating the TOS is a big deal anyway. Worst case scenario your link gets removed (actually the likely scenario) and your ip gets banned.

    It is not easy to get the link stay... you have to be sneaky with some account history.
