Have I done enough now, to get rid of the 'non-notable' flag on the Heather Smith page I've created?[edit]

This help request has been answered. If you need more help, you can ask another question on your talk page, contact the responding user(s) directly on their user talk page, or consider visiting the Teahouse.

Hello, I created this article: And it was initially flagged for a few issues.

I've gradually improved it, and most recently added a lot of GoogleBooks links, as was suggested in the 'potential non-notability' flag.

So, the article now has references from one of Australia's most respected newspapers, one of it's biggest business magazines and a number of other notable websites.

Surely that is enough to 'lose' the possible non-notable flag at last?

The newspaper and the business magazine help, Google Books however covers all kinds of books, notable or not, and it's not considered a reliable source (at least not for biographical content about the author, which would be relevant here). But even the non-Google News sources have very little coverage of Smith herself, usually at most a few lines. Thus personally I'd say more coverage of Smith would be required to clearly establish her notability. On an unrelated note, talk pages on Wikipedia (just like articles) should be read from top to bottom, with the newest comment at the very bottom of a section (or immediately below the comment it's a reply to) and new sections added at the bottom of the page. I've reordered the sections here accordingly. Huon (talk) 22:40, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
