Bizwiki now has over 150,000 registered Editors

We are happy to be able to announce that the Bizwiki project passed another milestone at the end of last week, when our 150,000th Editor registered on

This means that there are now over 150,000 people who have signed up to Bizwiki to help edit, add, correct and improve business information on the site.

Millions of people access and use the information on Bizwiki and the other sites it powers every month, so this is a great time to say thanks to the many users who are helping make this site the useful resource that it is. In a testament to the power of collaboration, we are seeing more improvements every day to the width of coverage of the business community but also to the depth of information about the individual companies that compose it.

The Bizwiki site is built around a self-organised and collaborative community that any of our users are invited to join. Rather than the usual experience of just reading what a website has to say, everyone is invited to actively participate. Users can help produce for themselves the best and most comprehensive index of businesses on the web, or the most detailed index of companies in their town or even street.

If you’d like to join in, add a company or update any of the information on the site, just click the Create Account link to become a Bizwiki Editor.

    Great to hear how the Bizwiki is growing… but would love if one of the 150,000 editors might get my business listed :(

    I registered and uploaded my business details over 2 weeks ago, i have emailed the help team twice but still no listing :(

    I look forward to seeing the listing (soon?)

    Yours sincerely ,
    A slightly impatient and disappointed Bizwiki user.

    Hi Andrea,

    Thanks for your comment. Just to clarify, although we are very very happy about the amazing number of editors that help Bizwiki gather information there are actually only a handful of moderators and it is these moderators that approve listings and updates.

    The editors are a fabulous help but they are not employed by Bizwiki and therefore do not have the ability to approve or delete entries or updates. That is reserved for the moderators who are employed by Bizwiki to manually check all submissions to ensure accuracy and compliance with our guidelines.

    I appreciate this takes time and can at times be frustrating but in the end it results in more reliable information for our users.

    Your listing has now been reviewed and approved. You can see it here:

    Thanks for using Bizwiki!
