Spam

Wikitia pages cannot be spammed as it is centrally controlled by only verified editors but Wikipedia pages can be edited by anyone, spam, negative news can be added. It can be spammed easily as they are open for editing and there are not enough active editors to control the pages. Wikipedia has been affected due to undisclosed paid editors and they have been spamming it for SEO, this is where Wikitia has an edge and can’t be spammed.

Video Search

Wikitia also ranks on Video searches, that generates thousands of clicks and impressions, Wikipedia is still running on old school and videos cant be added. It is interesting to note that video references are still not considered reliable by them even in this modern digital edge.

Reach

Wikipedia profiles can be created only for a limited number of people, organizations and topics, Wikitia can cover more topics, biographies and organizations. It is evident that several pages are rejected on Article for creation and deleted everyday, the reach of Wikipedia is limited and Wikitia seems to have an edge over Wikipedia as well.

Knowledge Source

Both Wikipedia and Wikitia pages are considered as reliable sources of Information on the search engines. Search engines are using rich semantics from Wikitia to the corresponding resources.
