Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, one or more of the external links you added to the page Norwalk, Connecticut with this edit do not comply with our guidelines for external links and have been removed. Wikipedia is not a collection of links; nor should it be used as a platform for advertising or promotion, and doing so is contrary to the goals of this project. Because Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings. If you feel the link should be added to the article, please discuss it on the article's talk page before reinserting it.

Norwalk, CT page[edit]

Good afternoon and thank you for maintaining the Norwalk, CT wiki page. I work for Ventus in Norwalk, CT and we are trying to add our company to the ‘Large and distinctive companies’ section of the Norwalk, CT Wikipedia page. I noticed you removed the additions and I’m curious what it is we need to do in order to accomplish this. Thank you for your help and understanding. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.251.33.38 (talk) 21:10, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

A very good afternoon to you as well. I just had another look at the Norwalk, CT page, and found that the section in question was quite clearly in need of a cleanup due to the way it was set up. As you may note, i removed all the companies that only consisted of an external link, or had no specific page on Wikipedia itself. This latter part is what i would call a requirement to be listed on a page that details something different then a company or a core aspect of the company (Such as this page about a geographic location).
As you might imagine there are a lot of companies in each regio, and not every single company may be notable enough to be mentioned; For example, if i would have a one person butcher shop listing it in the section would be as easy as listing any major company. One easy check is to see if the company itself is notable enough to have a stand-alone article on Wikipedia. If it has an article (Which isn't removed for not being notable) it likely means that it must at least have some form of significance that cannot be determined from external links alone. If your company would have a standalone article of sufficient size then i would say it warrants inclusion. But before writing an article, please read WP:42 and WP:COI.
