Established in 2011, Wiki.ezvid.com is a free-to-use video wiki published by the California technology company Ezvid Inc. Wikis are generally architected around a video, whereby a user is introduced to a concept in the space of a four-to-seven minute video presentation, and then additional text, images, data, and links to third-party information sources are provided to add more detail to each topic. The gentle nature of Ezvid's introductions to thousands of topics renders the Wiki particularly useful for teaching environments. Ezvid Wiki evolved from the message board surrounding Ezvid For Windows, first released in 2010. In those years it has grown from a small user-generated forum into the largest and most comprehensive video wiki on the planet, providing useful, unbiased information and actionable guidance to hundreds of millions of users around the world, in thousands of knowledge categories.
In December, 2020, a product team at Google determined that Ezvid Wiki's service competed too directly with Google's in-house product advertising services, and manually demoted our pages in Google's search results, along with the pages of several similar websites. On one day, our incoming traffic, and traffic to many similar websites, went down by 85%. Updates to the Wiki are currently on hold, as we await the outcome of anti-trust litigation against Google in the United States on a federal and state level.
How does this differ from other websites?
There is a problem with the Internet, and we want to fix it. What’s the problem? Information overload. Here's an example: We were looking recently on Wikipedia for information about USB, and this is what we found.
Wow, that looks complicated. Take a look for yourself. Here's the link.
We do believe that for many queries, Wikipedia provides the most authoritative and useful response. That's one reason we support the Wikimedia Foundation, and why you should, too.
But our website aims to answer questions on the Internet in ways that are accessible to anyone, without technical jargon or unnecessary digression. To this end, we’ve built our own best-of-breed video wiki creation engine, based on our massively popular video editing software Ezvid, currently in use by millions of Windows users around the world.
How is Ezvid Wiki's research funded?
We’re glad you asked. Our primary goal is to build a large and authoritative information resource that will come to rival the most prominent ‘nonfiction’ websites on the internet like Wikihow, Wikipedia, and Ask.com, but with the added explanatory power of video. We started with a team of talented contributors, and have now opened the Wiki to the public via Ezvid Wikimaker.
Growing our service has been expensive, so to keep the lights on, we display advertising on our website, and we accept referral fees from merchants such as Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target and Ebay. When you click on a link on our website to visit a merchant to buy something, you help support our website. Using our links will not increase your purchase price.
