A Wiki is a kind of website that allows users to add, subtract, and sometimes edit the existing content written by other authors. This ease of interaction and operation makes a wiki an effective tool for collaborative authoring and an excellent source for backlinking.
Backlinks from wikis are really useful because you can have anchor text too, this would prove great for ranking for specific keywords in Search Engines. As a matter of fact, WikiPedia itself is a wiki.
Just visit each wiki, sign up for an account, create a page for something informative, write up some nice information on the page and add your backlinks and submit the page. After the page is submitted, all you have to do is just build backlinks to that wiki page so it starts gaining some importance for the Search Engines.
NOTE: While writing a page on a Wiki, use the little buttons on the top for formating, Wikis don't follow the regular HTML format.
