Does WiZiQ meet notability criteria?

Note: (see Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/WiZiQ for the latest discussion)

Three main sources to justify notability:

  1. . Sramana Mitra's blog -- She is a columnist for Forbes.
  2. . Mashable article -- Mashable, a high traffic Internet news blog.
  3. . SiliconIndia article -- SilcionIndia is described by LinkedIn as a prominent and reliable website.

All of these articles are meeting significant coverage.

And what I write here is speaking to reliable sources.

Below is the original analysis (which is perhaps not as strong or summarized as concisely):

WiZiQ has been referenced in books in different subjects:
It has also been featured on blogs:
Sramana Mitra -- Sramana Mitra talks about WiZiQ, its business model, its funding, its revenue, its growth.
I looked at her blog and she has also published a book:
Vision India 2020
However one might measure the prominence of Sramana Mitra's blog, I think the strongest reason to keep WiZiQ is its quite high Alexa page rank:
It has an Alexa global traffic rank of 7,017 and an India traffic rank of 668 [1]. This means it is a top 1,000 site in India.
  • Edufire's global traffic rank is comparatively 51,785 [2]
and
I can't seem to get the quantcast traffic ratings for either Edufire or WiZiQ so maybe there is more to the story. (maybe that is why traffic rank isn't a criteria in WP:WEB ?)
Also, I'm fairly surprised that tutor.com's global traffic rank is only at 91,193. [5]
On the other hand Alexa is what is specified as the ranking engine of choice on Template:Infobox website.

No, it doesn't sound like it meets the notability criteria. somoene uploaded a tutorial, blogs, etc - no: WP:GNG under "Reliable". passing reference - no, see WP:GNG, "significant coverage". ErikHaugen (talk) 18:35, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
