Organisasi keagamaan harus mematuhi pedoman kelayakan organisasi dan perusahaan dan/atau kelayakan umum. Faktanya, meski bangunan gereja, masjid, atau klenteng yang didaftarkan sebagai cagar budaya, bukan berarti organisasi yang memiliki dan/atau mengelolanya layak untuk dibuat artikelnya. Bangunan tersebut mempunyai kriteria kelayakannya sendiri, dan menggabungkan artikel tersebut diperbolehkan.
Some commercial organizations meet Wikipedia notability guidelines but care must be taken in determining whether they are truly notable and whether the article is an attempt to use Wikipedia for free advertising. Wikipedia editors should not create articles on commercial organizations for the purpose of overtly or covertly advertising a company. Please see [[WP:NOTADVERTISING]].
====Publicly traded corporations====
There has been considerable discussion over time whether publicly traded corporations, or at least publicly traded corporations listed on major stock exchanges such as the [[NYSE]] and other comparable international stock exchanges, are inherently notable. Consensus has been that notability is not automatic in this (or any other) case. However, sufficient independent sources almost always exist for such companies, so that notability can be established using the primary criterion discussed above. Examples of such sources include independent press coverage and analyst reports. Accordingly, article authors should make sure to seek out such coverage and add references to such articles to properly establish notability.
Editors coming across an article on such a company without such references are encouraged to search (or request that others search) prior to nominating for deletion, given the very high (but not ''certain'') likelihood that a publicly traded company is actually notable according to the primary criterion.
Chains and franchises====
Many companies have chains of local stores or franchises that are individually pretty much interchangeable—for instance, a local [[McDonald's]]. Since there is generally very little to say about individual stores or franchises that is not true for the chain in general, Wikipedia should not have articles on such individual stores. In rare cases, an individual location will have architectural peculiarities that makes it notable, such as the [[Shell Service Station (Winston-Salem, North Carolina)]]; however, a series of articles on every single Wal-Mart in China would not be informative. An exception can be made if a major event occurred at a local store; however, this would most likely be created under an article name that describes the ''event'', not the location (see [[San Ysidro McDonald's massacre]] for an example).
