[Wikimedia-l] Community revitalization

Michal Lester
Dear friends and colleague,



I would to share with you the post we published on Wikimedia Blog (November
13, 2015) [1]. It describes how WMIL works with few *Wiktionary* volunteers
in a process of revitalization of *Wiktionary* community. I believe it
could be useful case study for those of you who deal with similar issues.

I would be happy to provide more info. to anyone who is interested
Michal

Thanks Michal.
I periodically use English Wiktionary and am pleased with it as a reader. I
am wondering what it might take to increase our readership of Wiktionaries
in general, perhaps by increasing the prominence of them in Google search
results. Pinging Toby to see if he has any ideas on how to increase the
readership of Wiktionaries.
Regards,
Pine

Hi Pine, Michal -- Google SEO is a bit of a black art, but we can reach out
and see if there's any specific feedback they can give us.

We are investigating linking to Wiktionary from the Android app and
Discovery may have some plans to integrate in search results. I'll bump
those teams.

How about a tool to look up in Wiktionary from Wikipedia?

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Community revitalization

Lila Tretikov
Hi Michal -- good to hear from you and wonderful blog post. Congratulations
on the partnership with the Academy of Hebrew Language.

With respect to both cross-linking Wikimedia projects (not just Wiktionary)
and SEO this is in the domain of the Discovery team which reports to Tomasz
Finc. The Readership team, as Toby pointed out already, is also looking at
cross-project integration. I think it may be easier to improve Wiktionary
SEO in languages other than English sadly because there is less online
content. You may want to connect with Tomasz and Toby directly to share
ideas.

We know we have a lot of content in sister-projects that is currently not
easily discoverable and this is a topic of many discussions.

L

That's what I thought. I would certainly find it useful both ways, but not in my skill set to create it.

In reply to this post by Peter Southwood
Hi Peter --

We're putting this feature into the Android app this quarter where we can
test and iterate on the UX. Based on user feedback, we'll have a better
idea of how to implement it on the more heavily trafficked platforms.
Clearly we'd do an automated fashion.

I'll ping the editing folks and see if there are any thoughts about a tool
for Editors.
