I've been researching new SEO trends for a few weeks now and I see alot of community buzz about Wikipedia pages effects on Google. For example: When I do a search on Lowe's or Macy's in Google:
I see that they have their Google+ page linked in their site which is good but the information in the right sidebar is also pulling from their Wikipedia page, such as when they were Founded, CEO's name, etc.
Does having a large, very well-known and established business, possibly a monopoly, qualify for creating a Wikipedia page for it? And if so, following the proper procedures, give it enough credibility to be listed in the right sidebar as in the image above give it a higher SEO ranking?
I know creating a Wikipedia page for personal usage isn't allowed and would most certainly be removed, but I'm curious as to if the method would produce higher results on the SERP and the information laid out as such on the right sidebar?
